Redfearn still worried by relegation

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn doesn't believe his side are able to relax just yet, as relegation remains a threat this season.

The Whites beat Ipswich Town last night to move 13 points clear of the bottom three, but Redfearn is still not contented.

"You want to be safe mathematically because people can put runs together but it’s a big ask for the third bottom side (Wigan) to go on that sort of run now," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "There’s only 11 games left and they’re going to have to win half their games which they haven’t done all season. But you never say never."

Gray on Blackburn

Stuart Gray says that Sheffield Wednesday could not handle Blackburn Rovers forward Chris Brown last night.

The Owls lost 2-1 to Blackburn at Hillsborough yesterday and Gray felt that Brown's display had been one of the major reasons behind his side's defeat. 

“We couldn’t handle Chris Brown up front," he admitted in the Sheffield Star. "He was too physically strong for us. We didn’t have the intensity that we did on Saturday."

Clough on Barker

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough insists that his side are not interested in signing Shaun Barker from Derby County.

Barker has been training with the Blades this week, as he makes his long awaited comeback from injury, but Clough says the Yorkshire outfit are not interested in making his move a permanent one. 

"We’re not looking to bring him in, we’re just helping Shaun out and giving him some game time," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph
