Rotherham match-winner Jonson Clarke-Harris could emerge as a major talent at the club, according to his manager Steve Evans after his side beat Leeds 2-1 in the Yorkshire derby.

Clarke-Harris, 20, a club record £400,000 transfer deadline day signing from Oldham, smashed a swerving 25-yard shot beyond Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri in the 65th minute, just two minutes after replacing Matt Derbyshire to clinch Rotherham a second win in eight league matches.

Millers striker Alex Revell had cancelled out Mirco Antenucci's deserved opener for Leeds, but it was left to super-sub Clarke-Harris to steal the plaudits.

"People should remember his name, we think he is a special talent,'' said Evans.

"We beat some big clubs in the Championship to get his services. He has got all the attributes in terms of physicality.

"He needs to be instilled with confidence every day and I will be the manager that gives him that.

"He really has every attribute. He is very talented, he is strong, but at times he has a schoolboy approach with his runs.

"We really think he could be a real find and talent, but we need to work with him.''

Former York Professor starts research charity to stop superbug catastrophe

The overuse of antibiotics is leading to an increase in drug resistant strains of diseases like TB and malaria. But there is a warning now that unless there is urgent action we may see the end of operations like organ transplants, cancer treatments, knee and hip replacements - an ultimately even a grazed knee could prove fatal.

Now a new charity, Antibiotic Research UK, has been set up by a former York University professor to try to develop new effective drugs. Jon Hill reports.

Yorkshire MP calls for more research into superbugs

A Yorkshire MP has called for greater investment in research into new antibiotics amid fears the rise in drug-resistant bacteria could lead to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

There are growing concerns that as so-called superbugs develop resistance to drugs, the world could return to a "pre-antibiotic age" where where minor infections could once again kill.

Research by the drugs companies into new antibiotics has tailed off. Now a new charity Antibiotic Research UK aims to raised enough money to develop effective drugs.

Julian Sturdy, the Conservative MP for York Outer says an injury as minor as a grazed knee could have the potential to be life-threatening.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria, more informally dubbed 'superbugs' could cause a health catastrophe worse than the ebola crisis according to one of the region's leading scientists.

Almost 5,000 people die in this country from antibiotic resistant infections each year.

Experts are warning that surgery as we know it for procedures like hip replacements or organ transplants could become impossible because of the rise in highly infectious bugs.

Now a new charity, Antibiotic Research UK, has been set up by a former York University professor to develop new effective drugs.
