Yorkshire media round-up: Antenucci latest, and Sheffield Wednesday injury update

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

Redfearn on Antenucci

Neil Redfearn says that Mirco Antenucci is understandably frustrated after his lack of chances for Leeds United recently.

Antenucci has not featured much since the turn of the year, despite having a decent goalscoring record, and Redfearn explained his reasons for not picking the Italian over the weekend.

“He’s a goalscorer and he’s found himself out of the picture because we’re playing a certain way," Redfearn told the Yorkshire Evening Post

“He’s frustrated and he’s going to be. He wants to play like everybody else. But you can only pick 11 and if you’re getting results then you’ve got to stick with the lads who are doing well.”

Gray on injuries

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray has been left frustrated after both Will Keane and Liam Palmer picked up injuries in their match against Fulham at the weekend. 

Keane and Palmer were both stretchered off on Saturday and Gray admits that losing the pair will be a blow for the side. 

“It’s a big blow and it’s bad enough losing one player to injury, never mind two," he said to the Yorkshire Post.

“I will have a meeting with the medical staff and see how they are. It’s too soon to say if they will miss the Wolves game [which takes place tomorrow night].”

Clough pleased

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough was satisfied with the point that his team picked up from their match against Scunthorpe United at the weekend.

The Blades drew 1-1 with Scunthorpe and Clough says that it should be a point which helps them in their bid to claim a playoff place.

"It’s a good point away from home," he to the Yorkshire Post. "First half we played well, but to concede a goal by losing two headers was not very good, but I think they only had two chances all game."
