Yorkshire media round-up: Leeds youngster hails 'on fire' teammate

Elland Road East Stand

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

Taylor on Mowatt

Leeds United youngster Charlie Taylor has hailed Alex Mowatt after his run of excellent performances. 

Mowatt hit the back of the net against Ipswich Town and Wigan Athletic recently and Taylor thinks his fellow academy graduate is 'on fire'. 

"It was a great goal. I haven’t really seen him score many on his right foot but it was a great strike from him," he said to Leeds' official site. "He’s on fire at the minute and scoring for fun."

McGugan on Wednesday fans

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Lewis McGugan has praised the club's supporters for their backing since he returned to Hillsborough. 

The Owls have struggled at home this season and McGugan feels that they owe their fans a performance against Fulham this weekend.

"Since my first spell and this one, the fans have been absolutely brilliant with me and it was a strong, strong reason why I wanted to come back," he told the Sheffield Star. "Hopefully we can repay the fans for their backing against Fulham.”

Hunt on Rotherham survival hopes

Jack Hunt wants to help Rotherham United stay in the Championship and he says it will be a bigger achievement for the club then either of their recent promotions.

The Millers have accelerated through the divisions, but Hunt feels that simply competing in England's second tier is something the Yorkshire outfit can be proud of.

“From now until the end of the season, I’ve got to help the manager and other lads keep Rotherham in the Championship," he said to the Sheffield Star

“Everyone knows in the league they’re one of the smaller teams with a smaller budget. To stay in the Championship would, I think, be better than the back-to-back promotions of the previous two years.”
