The Yorkshire Post has claimed that Leeds United rejected a proposal from the Football League to stage their Championship clash with Middlesbrough on Saturday lunchtime.
The club, and owner Massimo Cellino, fought to try and block the rescheduling of the match to Monday night for live broadcast on Sky Sports.
But the YEP reports that the date change was first proposed on December 10, while a compromise of an early Saturday kick off was offered and rejected four days later.
A new date of February 15 wasn't confirmed until January 20 due to legal wrangling, meaning many supporters had travel plans thrown into disarray.
Elsewhere, Preston North End striker Paul Gallagher has compared teammate Adam Reach with Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.
Reach, on loan from Middlesbrough , has scored four times for PNE after agreeing a move to Deepdale in search of first team football.
“We can give him the ball and he can go and carry it the full length of the pitch. We have got a few players like that such as Daniel Johnson and Alan Browne, but Adam has come in and fitted in really well.”
Neil Warnock has revealed he took advice from his wife on whether to take the Rotherham manager's job.
The former Huddersfield Town boss has taken the reins until the end of the season, with his brief to save the Millers from relegation.
Warnock said: "A lot of it was down to my wife. She's not been well. But I think I might have got on her nerves Monday and Tuesday.
"When I told her I was favourite for the Rotherham job she said, 'Why don't you go for it?'. That was the encouragement I needed.
"It happened very quickly. When I met the chairman on Thursday, before we'd actually agreed anything, and I said I wanted to come up after the meeting and take training in the morning, I think he was a little bit shocked, I don't believe you should mess around, particularly at my age."
Cardiff City have no desire to make Craig Bellamy their next manager, according to WalesOnline.
A home town hero, there had been rumours the former Liverpool star was being lined up to take over in the summer - Russell Slade's contract runs out at the end of the season and there have been no discussions about an extension as yet.
Bellamy has done his coaching badges and wants to move into management, but the paper's sources suggest that the club do not yet feel the time is right for the Wales international to take charge in the capital.
Bristol City have denied any interest in Crewe Alexandra winger Brad Inman.
The Daily Mail reported yesterday that the Robins were one of several Championship clubs tracking the 24-year-old, but a source at the club has denied the link.
Ryan Giggs will battle to keep Hull City loanee Nick Powell at Manchester United, according to Steve Bruce.
The midfielder is yet to make his debut for the Tigers, but Bruce has said it's a question of fitness and said Powell has shown in training why he was bought for a large fee.
Said Bruce: "Manchester United have kept their options open and because he’s under 24 they can do.
"I don’t know if they’ve closed the door on him or not but maybe the key is what he does here between now and the end of the season."
Bolton Wanderers could be set to lose 15 first team players in the summer.
The Bolton News have revealed the Trotters are facing a potential summer exodus with many players out of contract, including the likes of Emile Heskey, Liam Feeney, and David Wheater.
Wanderers are bottom of the Championship, seven points from safety.
Brentford defender Harlee Dean has signed a new contract with the Bees.
Dean was out of contract in the summer and had appeared to be on his way but there was a change of heart at the top of the club.
He has now agreed a two year extension until 2018.
