Leeds United are hoping to stave off the advances of Tottenham Hotspur on young goalkeeping prospect Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

The 19-year-old's contract at Elland Road runs out in the summer and Spurs aren't the only Premier League side said to be circling.

But with rumours that Leeds no.1 Marco Silvestri could be leaving this summer, the club could well give him the opportunity for first team Championship football.

Hull City have suffered an injury blow ahead of their clash with Huddersfield Town.

Manchester United loanee Nick Powell had been hoping to feature at the John Smith's Stadium after a hamstring injury but has now suffered a thigh strain that could rule him out for the rest of the season.

Steve Bruce remarked : "Nick re-injured himself on Tuesday when he was just stepping up his training with us for a second day.

"Unfortunately he pulled a thigh. I don't think we'll see him again before the end of the season."

West Brom are reportedly considering a swoop for Sheffield Wednesday ace Tom Lees.

The 25-year-old has been in impressive form for the Owls this term and the Baggies are interested in bringing him to the Hawthorns next season, according to reports in the Italian media.

The defender was nominated for the March Championship Player of the Month award for his solid performances at the back for Carlos Carvalhal's men.

Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka has warned that failure to reach the Premier League would leave the club struggling to tie down Gaston Ramirez.

The Southampton loanee was superb against Town on Tuesday night, but Karanka has underlined that the Uruguayan will have no shortage of suitors - particularly should Boro be unable to offer top flight football.

Said Karanka: “It was nice for me in January because he had good offers from Italy but he wanted to come to play for us and that was the main thing for me."

Neil Warnock has scooped the March Championship Manager of the Month award after overseeing a dramatic upturn in fortunes for Rotherham.

The Millers were unbeaten during the month, taking 10 points from four games to help them move away from the dreaded relegation zone.

Warnock declared : "We won't stop here and it's important to keep that momentum going that we've built up over the last month. We'll need to continue this string of form from now until the end of the season."

Cardiff City boss Russell Slade has spoken out about rumours linking Bruno Manga with a move to Premier League side Bournemouth.

Speaking ahead of the weekend clash with Fulham, Slade dismissed the speculation, saying he had heard nothing personally about any interest from the Cherries.

The Bluebirds' boss told Wales Online: "I know Eddie really well at Bournemouth. I will tell you why I don`t think there`s anything in it; if there was any interest he would have picked up the phone. I think this is pure speculation. Bruno`s been very consistent since he`s come back into the team."

Phil Brown insists he expects to be manager of Southend United next season - despite media links with Bolton Wanderers.

Brown played for Wanderers between 1988 and 1994, and had a brief stint as caretaker manager there in 1999.

“The speculation about my future doesn’t help the players but I would like to say to them that I’m certainly going to be here until the end of the season,” said Brown.

“I’d also certainly like to say I’m going to be here next season too because I want to get this club back in the Championship and I’ll give everything I can to get us there."

European Cup winner Garry Birtles believes his former club Nottingham Forest are a mess on and off the field.

Sky Bet Championship - Nottingham Forest (0) v Huddersfield Town (2) - Philip Billing celebrates his goal.

Forest, beaten 2-0 by Town in February, are now one point and one place above David Wagner's men in the Championship.

Birtles wrote in the Nottingham Post: "There aren't many great days to enjoy right now. To me the one saving grace is that MK Dons can't buy a win.

"That gap remains at nine points on the Championship bottom three, which is good because I can't see where the next point is coming from."
