Yorkshire media round-up: Leeds youngster admits early season frustration

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

Taylor admits frustrations

Leeds United youngster Charlie Taylor admits that he had become frustrated at the start of the season as he wasn't receiving regular first-team opportunities.

Taylor was playing second fiddle to Stephen Warnock at Leeds, but since the experienced defender's move to Derby County in January he has come into the team and the 21-year-old is enjoying getting regular action. 

“Earlier in the season, it was a bit frustrating," he said to the Yorkshire Evening Post. “But since the turn of the year, I have enjoyed every game really. I will hopefully try and improve every game and it’s been a good run in the side."

Whelan wants Wednesday in the Premier League

Former Sheffield Wednesday fans' favourite Glenn Whelan says that he is hoping that the Owls can return to the Premier League soon. 

Wednesday have just been taken over by wealthy Thai businessman Dejphon Chansiri and expectations have been raised at Hillsborough. 

Whelan certainly believes that they have a chance of promotion and the Stoke City player is hoping for a reunion against his former club soon. 

“Sheffield Wednesday are a massive club with a great stadium," he said to the Sheffield Star. "Hopefully the new owners will give them a chance of maybe getting promoted next season.”

Clough wants to confirm play-off spot

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough is hoping that his side break out of their slump soon to ensure that they make it into the play-offs.

The Blades' promotion hopes have been dented after defeats to Peterborough United and Fleetwood Town in recent weeks, but Clough feels that their poor form is just a minor blip. 

“Hopefully we’ve had our little wobble now and, over the next 12 games, we can see it through and seal our play-off place," he said to the Sheffield Star
