Yorkshire media round-up: Redfearn analyses new signing's ability

Leeds United

We bring you the latest news from Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.

Redfearn on Cani

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn believes that Edgar Cani has been a good addition to the squad as he brings a new attacking threat.

Cani's power is his most notable asset, but Redfearn has been impressed by his technical ability too, and he expects that the January addition will bring good competition to the squad. 

"He’s a great build for a big man up front," he said to the club's official site. "He’s got a good touch and good awareness. "He links in well and he’s aware of the people around him. He’s got the makings of that foil as a lone striker."

Gray on Wednesday

Stuart Gray says that Lewis McGugan offers something that nobody else in his Sheffield Wednesday squad does.

McGugan signed for the Owls on loan until the end of the season last week and Gray believes his goalscoring talents will make him a valuable player for the side. 

"Lewis has given us a big lift," Gray told the Sheffield Telegraph. "He is a familiar face. He has scored 40 plus goals from midfield so we know the quality he’s got.

“No disrespect to my midfield players, but I haven’t got any who is scoring goals on a regular basis so hopefully Lewis can do that for us.”

Doyle wants reaction

Michael Doyle has urged his Sheffield United side to bounce back from their defeat to Preston North End in the FA Cup. 

The Blades went down 3-1 to Preston in midweek and Doyle expects the team to put in a much improved performance against Gillingham this weekend. 

“The league is all that’s left now and that’s the bread and butter," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "But, because of what we’ve done in the cups lately, to lose like that was disappointing. We went out with a whimper and so we’ve got to bounce back."
