The Nigerian international, who has been in superlative form for the club, is being banked upon to stop Pirates who are desperate to close the six points gap between them and the Chiefs. Some analysts and fans alike believe contribution of the goalkeepers will play a major role in the match expected to be watched by over 90,000 spectators. Although the Chiefs failed in their bid to win the Nedbank Cup recently, their pursuit of the premier league title remains on course with the Nigerian contributing in no small measure to the success story so far even as many of the club fans predict that he will again rise to the occasion in the all-important Saturday derby. Interestingly the match will be a battle of two German coaches Chiefs Ernst Middendorp and Orlando Pirates Josef Zinnbauer respectively. It is reportedly the first time in 50-year history of the greatest South African sporting rivalry that both coaches will come from European football powerhouse Germany.Advertisementlast_img read more

Hughes hits out at referee again

first_img Press Association Mark Hughes pleaded with referees to give Stoke a chance after seeing his 10 men slip to a 1-0 defeat at Sunderland. The Potters boss was aggrieved at match official Robert Madley’s decision to book midfielder Steven N’Zonzi for a second time eight minutes into the second half of his side’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at the Stadium of Light and accused Jozy Altidore, his victim on both occasions, of making the most of minimal contact. Hughes, who saw Glenn Whelan and Marc Wilson dismissed during a 5-1 defeat at Newcastle on his last visit to north-east England on Boxing Day, said: “We are disappointed, obviously, that a performance of real character and desire and determination and no little skill has got no reward. However, they needed a superb 39th-minute save by keeper Vito Mannone, and then six minutes from time the crossbar to deny Ryan Shawcross an equaliser. Asked if it felt like a big moment, first-team coach Charlie Oatway, standing in for the unwell Poyet at the post-match press conference, said: “Yes, it does. “Since we came in, you could see the strain on people’s faces in and around the club, and it’s such a big achievement for those people as well as the fans and the players. “They have to put up with it as well and keep hoping that we get out of the trouble that we are in, so it will be nice to go in tomorrow and see, hopefully, some smiling faces. “I don’t know how long it’s going to last because of the games we have got coming up, so it’s going to be tough. But it will be nice to see their faces. “We have done well of late. We have got a style that we want to play, we are managing to get points and we have managed to claw it back, so to tick another box of winning at home, it’s a good achievement for everyone.” Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole was conspicuous by his absence, sparking fresh speculation over Stoke’s reported interest in him, but Hughes insisted no bid had been tabled and Oatway confirmed that. He said: “He just had a little bit of a knock. There have been no bids.” Meanwhile, Argentinian striker Ignacio Scocco watched from the stands as he closed in on a move to Wearside. “Unfortunately on too many occasions this season, we have been hurt by refereeing decisions that have had a marked effect on the outcome of the game. “We are talking once again about a situation that I feel was a poor decision from the referee. “It was difficult for him because I felt the lad Altidore went down very easily looking for an advantage and I felt on the night, too much of that was going on, to be perfectly honest. “The referee has got to be able to look through that and understand what is happening. He wasn’t very good in that regard and as a consequence, he bought a challenge where there was very minimal contact. “The lad went down easily and the referee deemed fit to give Steven a second yellow card for that challenge, which is unbelievable from my point of view. “I was really pleased with how we played, but there are too many occasions where we are having mountains to climb to enable us to win football matches. “All we ask is that we have a level playing field and the key decisions are made correctly because when you have two sides going against each other, you want the best team to win and unfortunately, the best team didn’t win.” Adam Johnson’s 17th-minute strike was enough to hand Sunderland a win which, coupled with West Ham’s failure to emerge from their trip to Chelsea with an unlikely victory, lifted them out of the bottom three for the first time since August. last_img read more

Ince: Hull was best move for me

first_img “We’ve brought Tom in and he’s a great asset and Snodgrass we know can do it in the Premier League,” Livermore said. “It just sends out a good vibe that the club want to go somewhere with British football. We’ve got a great core at the club be it through the Irish, Scottish or English and we all get along well on and off the pitch which is very important and we look to be going places.” Hull’s FA Cup endeavours last year have earned them a place in this season’s Europa League third round qualifiers and Livermore is looking forward to playing in Europe again after doing so at Spurs. “If you asked me whether I’d rather be abroad playing football or just away on holiday I know where I’d want to be,” he added. “I loved playing in Europe. It was great travelling across the world playing in different countries and experiencing different opposition with different styles of football… The players are all still young but the coaches are all still learning too and it’s also great for the fans to go around the world too. We’re all really looking forward to it.” Tom Ince says that a move to Inter Milan would have been a dream, but joining Hull City was the better move to improve him as a player. After leaving Blackpool the 22-year-old was courted by a host of clubs, with Inter widely believed to be at the front of the queue for his signature, but he decided against following in the footsteps of his father Paul and signed a two year deal at the KC Stadium instead. “It was close, I spent three or four days out there. I stood in the San Siro and I thought I was in a dream,” Ince said. “But those types of moves I feel can come if you perform. I’m still a young player and I feel this is not only the time to prove to myself that I can play in the Premier League but this is the right move for me at the right time.” Ince says that new manager Steve Bruce was the key factor in him choosing Hull. He has a long running relationship with Bruce through his father and their days together at Manchester United. “I’m under the right development and like the way the gaffer (Steve Bruce) plays. He knows what I can do and he can enhance my skills and once I do that a few years down the line if there’s another option abroad then maybe I’ll take that chance then. Right now the opportunity of playing Premier League is the right one for me,” Ince added. “I’ve known the gaffer for quite some time not only on a personal basis, but he believes in me as a football player. “When you have that belief from a manager and seeing what the club did last year, with the FA Cup run obviously being the highlight, to be part of that is a great opportunity.” Ince is one of four new faces to sign on the dotted line at the KC Stadium so far this season, with Jake Livermore returning after a loan spell in 2013-14, Robert Snodgrass moving from Norwich and 20-year-old striker Karim Rossi also joining Hull after finding first-team opportunities hard to come by at Stoke. “Not many people realise the squad that Hull have. They’ve got a lot of British players, especially throughout the core of the team and you don’t see that often now in the Premier League,” Ince said. “With the new British players we’ve got coming in and the ones already here we’re a strong team with a lot of talent and there could be a few surprises this year from Hull.” Those sentiments were echoed by new team-mate Livermore, who was still deemed surplus to requirements at Tottenham despite his starring role for Hull last season.

Syracuse trying to solve 3rd-period collapses

first_img Published on November 12, 2019 at 10:09 pm Contact Will: wrhentsc@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ After two periods on Oct. 25, Syracuse led 1-0 against then-No. 6 Princeton.Twenty minutes later, the Orange trailed 3-1, with the final horn sounding and dropping them to 0-8. SU had outplayed one of the best teams in the nation for 40 minutes, but was dominated in the final 20 to remain winless.Through its first 12 games of the season, Syracuse (2-10-0, 1-1-0 College Hockey America) has conceded 20 third-period goals — as many as four in one period — while only scoring eight. The Orange haven’t scored more than two goals in a single third period. SU has also been assessed 20 third period penalties in the same stretch of games.Third-period struggles on both sides of the ice have been a problem for Syracuse all season. But now with momentum from its most recent win over RIT on Nov. 2 and extended rest, the team is looking to reverse that trend heading into the bulk of conference play.“I think it’s playing a full 60 minutes,” senior forward Logan Hicks said. “If we only play 40, then we’re going to have a hard time, and never get the results we want.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhether physical or mental, conditioning and penalties are preventing the Orange from staying competitive in the third period. Consistency has also been an issue. In their 7-4 loss to RIT, the Orange allowed four final-period goals. The very next day, they shutout RIT 3-0 in their most complete game yet.“It’s probably a combination of factors,” head coach Paul Flanagan said, “The number one is just getting a little tight. Confidence wanes a little bit when there’s pressure … Just having that sort of killer instinct mentality, not only offensively but defensively too.”Amy Nakamura | Co-Digital EditorFlanagan mentioned conditioning as a major factor in the team’s late-game shortcomings. The Orange participated in Herb Brooks’ suicide drill from the movie “Miracle” last Tuesday morning.The Orange bolted in-between the different lines of the rink, straining more with every stop and start. Flanagan hopes the improved conditioning pans out, and the Orange start developing into the full 60-minuteteam they need to be for conference play.After its latest dominant performance over RIT, Syracuse has its first conference win of the season against a team that it has struggled with in previous meetings.“I think it’s definitely a confidence booster,” sophomore Lauren Bellefontaine said. “To have beaten that team that we’ve had a tough time with in the past has definitely helped us.”The conditioning aspect of the mentality works both ways. If a player is better conditioned, she’ll be able to play better for longer. Another benefit of improved conditioning, though, is mental. The improved fitness allows the Orange to make smarter plays later in the game, as their game plan won’t be neutralized from heavy legs.Syracuse’s plan to build confidence with wins is exactly that: dependent on wins. To win more games in the conference, though, the Orange has to not just start games, but finish them.“Really, it’s just making plays when you’re tired,” said Flanagan, “it’s just a function of the game. In the second half of the game and the second half of a shift –– just making plays when you get tired, being able to be reliable when you’re tired.” Commentslast_img read more
