Yorkshire latest: Redfearn on Leeds in training, Gray not fazed by sack threats

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

Redfearn on what Leeds have been working on in training 

Neil Redfearn says that Leeds United have been working on playing at a higher tempo in training. 

The Whites boss has tried to give his team more confidence to be brave in possession and he believes the results are showing, after their win against Blackpool in their most recent fixture.

"We worked on the tempo at which they needed to train and about the ethics of dealing with the ball and being able to play with the ball, trusting themselves not to make mistakes and playing in tight areas," he said to Leeds' official site.

Gray not fazed by sack

Stuart Gray says that he is not fazed by the prospect of facing the sack if Sheffield Wednesday's form doesn't improve. 

The Owls have struggled for wins and goals of late and the pressure is mounting on Gray to start racking up the wins soon. 

“I’m not worried. I’ve been in the game long enough to know that it’s about winning," he told the Sheffield Telegraph

“Football management is not a long lifespan if you are not getting results. That is understandable and I accept that it’s part and parcel of the game."

Powell wants training intensity

Chris Powell believes that Huddersfield Town must train to their maximum levels during every session which is available to them. 

The Terriers have been much improved since Powell arrived at the club, but he wants them to continue their upwards trajectory. 

"It’s crucial to play and work to your optimum, and I am a firm believer that good habits are formed on the training ground," he said to the Examiner. "Every session is important.”

Blades closer together

Nigel Clough believes that Sheffield United's squad are stronger than ever before after the off-the-field drama in the past week.

The Blades have been the centre of the media's attention after handing Ched Evans the chance to train with them and Clough feels that the scrutiny they have received has brought them closer together. 

“It’s brought us closer together as a club," he said to the Yorkshire Post. "We’re a tight-knit group and that goes for the players and the staff. We’re a tight-knit club."
