Yorkshire media round-up: Redfearn praises 'under the radar' Leeds youngster

Leeds United East Stand

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

Redfearn on Taylor

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn believes that Charlie Taylor doesn't get the credit he deserves, when compared to the Whites' other young stars.

Taylor has broken into Leeds' first-team at the same time as Sam Bryam, Alex Mowatt and Lewis Cook, but Redfearn feels his role is not as heralded as any of his fellow academy graduates.

“Charlie goes a bit under the radar,” Redfearn told the Yorkshire Evening Post. “People spot you more easily when you’re scoring goals or getting forward like Sam, Alex and Lewis do. Those three have been fantastic for us.

“But if you think about the time Charlie came into the team – a time when we needed results and things weren’t going great, a time when he hadn’t played for a while – his performances have been top draw."

Gray on Zayatte

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray has praised Kamil Zayatte for his performance against Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend.

Zayatte was restored to the Owls' starting line-up and helped his side claim a clean sheet in the match, which ended goalless. Gray was understandably delighted with the defender's efforts. 

“I was pleased with the way Kamil performed,” Gray told The Star. “He was excellent and I thought it was a good battle between him and Leon Best."

Clough pleased

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough was satisfied with the way his side played in their 2-1 win over Notts County last night.

The Blades grabbed an important three points thanks to goals from Jamie Murphy and Matt Done, and Clough was pleased with the showing of his team.

"We played some really good stuff before having to dig-in," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "The two finishes we put away were very different but they both came from some excellent play.

“There’s still around a third of the season to go and that’s an awful lot of football to play. There’s a long way to go yet but we’ll just keep on working hard and trying to improve.”
