Warnock feared Swansea rout

first_imgCrystal Palace manager Neil Warnock feared his side would suffer a double-figure beating after the first 15 minutes at Swansea. “After the Liverpool game nobody talks about us at all, it’s all about Liverpool, but I thought we were fantastic.” Swansea manager Garry Monk felt his side had been in control apart from a difficult period immediately after Jedinak’s equaliser. “We started the game very well on the front foot and were in the ascendancy,” Monk said. “I was disappointed with their goal because we gave the ball away, they countered and got the penalty from there. “For four or five minutes after that we were unsettled because of the dominance we had, but we were the ones pushing for the second goal and the performance was very good. “But Palace defended well, they put people on the 18-yard line and it was difficult for us to get the second goal.” Swansea have now lost 13 points from winning positions this season but Monk insisted he was not focusing on that damaging statistic. “I look at 19 points. We’ve got a great total, we’re still seventh and we’re still improving and progressing as team,” Monk said. “Yes, we’ve made little mistakes but I look at the positives. “The performance level I can’t argue with, we’re having a good season and we’re trying to find our way to push on.” “The first 20 minutes is as bad as I’ve seen us play since I’ve been at the club. “We just couldn’t put two passes together, we couldn’t pass water. It was really poor. “But after that we regrouped and I thought our lads responded.” Warnock felt Palace were aided by an injury to striker Dwight Gayle which allowed James McArthur to bolster the midfield and Marouane Chamakh fill the main striker’s role. And it was Chamakh who won the penalty when Jonjo Shelvey’s clumsy challenge saw the Moroccan fall to the floor in a crowded penalty area. “McArthur coming on and Chamakh going up front helped us, it made us more solid and more of a threat,” Warnock said after Palace had built on their 3-1 home victory over Liverpool. “Swansea always control the game, that’s how they are. But you have to give us credit as a lot of teams could have laid down, but we played controlled football after the break. “We might be limited in certain areas but we are a good honest bunch. Press Association Wilfried Bony scored his sixth goal in seven Barclays Premier League games on the quarter-hour mark to reward Swansea’s complete domination, but Palace levelled through Mile Jedinak’s 25th minute penalty and ending up taking a 1-1 draw home from the Liberty Stadium. “I was wondering if it would be double figures after 15 minutes because it couldn’t have got any worse,” Warnock said. last_img read more

Enyimba, Kano Pillars in Flying Start to the New Season

first_imgElsewhere, Kano Pillars Football Club yesterday picked up a slim 1-0 win over visiting Heartland FC of Owerri to start their campaign on a winning note. The match which was played at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano was watched by large number ‎of spectators.Midfielder Sunday Chinedu scored the winner in the 16th minute, and in spite of their dominance Kano Pillars failed to add to their lead.‎In Aba, Nelson Ogbonnaya gave Enyimba the lead on 13 minutes, before Abdulrahman Bashir sealed the win in the 54th minute.Chukwuka Onuwa and Stanley Okorom were hoping to make their debuts, since joining from MFM during pre-season, but Enyimba head coach Usman Abdallah decided to keep faith with Austin Oladapo and Andrew Abalogu ahead of the duo.The visitors handed debut to Michael Ohanu, who formed a formidable partnership upfront with Chijioke Akuneto and Akanni Elijah in a 4-3-3 formation. Ohanu joined the Lagos side from El-Kanemi Warriors.Enyimba got the fixture to a rousing start just before the quarter hour, as Ogbonnaya rose highest to head home Nasiru Sani’s throw-in. MFM goalkeeper Emmanuel Nasamu and his defenders lost out while trying to keep Chinedu Udechukwu in check, leaving Ogbonnaya free in the six-yard area.The People’s Elephant would have doubled their advantage three minutes before the break, but Nasamu turned up this time, to deny Bashir from 15 yards.The home side took firm control of the fixture with a second, nine minutes after the break. Bashir got to the end of Abalogu’s free kick to nod in from close range.Midway through the second half, Abdallah withdrew Stanley Dimgba, to hand former MFM man Onuwa his debut, much to the delight of the home fans, who gave him a standing ovation.Onuwa’s presence added bite to the home side’s attacking play, but Enyimba could not translate their dangerous attacking moves to further goals, as the duo of Stephen Chukwude and Thomas Zenke were wasteful late on.MFM would have had a consolation five minutes to time, but Akuneto had himself to blame for deciding to go solo, instead of squaring the ball through to Ohanu, who had just the goalkeeper to beat.Enyimba go top of Group A, after Kwara United and Sunshine Stars shared the spoils in IIorin. The four remaining fixtures in the group were postponed to a later date, due to continental engagements (Lobi and Rangers) and recovery time handed the newly promoted teams (Remo Stars and Bendel Insurance).NPFL RESULTSAkwa Utd 0-1 El KanemiEnyimba 2-0 MFM FC Kano Pillars 1-0 HeartlandKwara 1-1 Sunshine StarsNasarawa 1-0  Abia WarriorsPlateau Utd 0-0 IfeanyiUbahPOSTPONED MATCHESRangers v TornadoesGo Round v Kada CityLobi Stars v Katsina UtdRivers Utd v Remo Stars Wikki  v Bendel InsuranceYobe Stars v Gombe UtdShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram NPFL…NPFL…NPFL…By El-Kanemi grabs first away win in UyoSeven-time champions Enyimba got their 2018/2019 NPFL season underway with a convincing two-nil win over MFM FC Lagos at the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba on Sunday.last_img read more

Manchester United battle back to win at Hull

first_imgJames Chester’s own goal completed Manchester United’s comeback from two goals down to win at Hull. Chester gave the hosts the lead with a volley, before David Meyler’s shot deflected in after 12 minutes.But United’s Chris Smalling headed in, before Wayne Rooney thumped United level from more than 20 yards, his 150th Premier League goal for the club. Ex-Old Trafford man Chester headed into his own net in the second half, before United’s Antonio Valencia was sent off.In coming from behind, it is the fifth consecutive win for David Moyes’ team – the first time that has happened since he took charge. Hull had conceded just three goals in their previous eight matches at KC Stadium but folded under pressure from United. Steve Bruce has now gone 19 league games without a win as manager against his old club.It looked very different when his side were two goals up inside 13 minutes. First, Alex Bruce rose above Patrice Evra to win the ball from Tom Huddlestone’s corner, with Chester volleying in from a couple of yards.Soon after, Meyler lobbed into the area for Yannick Sagbo and, after the visitors failed to clear, Meyler’s mis-hit shot deflected in off Jonny Evans. Minutes later, United halved the deficit when Smalling glanced in a header from Rooney’s free-kick.Tigers goalkeeper Allan McGregor pulled off a fine save from Tom Cleverley’s curling shot as Hull came under heavy pressure. But after 26 minutes, Moyes’ side moved level when Rooney’s attempted through ball was blocked by Curtis Davies, and the United man took a touch before thumping past McGregor.last_img read more

South Africa coach scared of Algeria not Ghana

first_imgBafana Bafana coach,Shakes Mashaba has described Algeria, one of South Africa’s first opponents at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, as “very tough, tactical and quick going forward”.Mashaba was hoping to pit his rapidly improving Bafana Bafana side against the North Africans in a pre-tournament friendly, but that is unlikely to happen now that the sides are drawn against each other in Group C.Bafana’s other opponents in the group are also likely to pose a stiff challenge – South Africa have never beaten Senegal in five attempts, and while their record against Ghana is a good one, the Black Stars are one of Africa’s strongest sides, and beat South Africa home and away while qualifying for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.Full Afcon drawGROUP AEquatorial GuineaBurkina FasoGabonCongo GROUP BZambiaTunisiaCape VerdeDR Congo GROUP CGhanaAlgeriaSouth AfricaSenegalGROUP DIvory CoastMaliCameroonGuinealast_img read more

Crusader preview: Both Wellington and Rose Hill are looking for their first win of the season

Trouble is, Rose Hill has a similar desperation.The Crusaders will travel to Rose Hill in what will be a battle of two winless teams. The Rockets have a tough row to hoe in the future. But it won’t be like Wellington’s murderous trifecta of Andale, Wichita Collegiate and Scott City in simultaneous weeks.Rose Hill comes into the game on an 11-game losing streak. The last time Rose Hill won was in Oct. 30, 2014 when it beat Mulvane 28-22.After a dreadful 2015 in which the Rockets went 0-9 and never played a close game, Rose Hill fell to Wichita Collegiate 41-6 and Mulvane 40-20 last weekend. It has been a precipitous fall for a program that won a state championship in 2011.The Rockets are chomping at the bits for a victory.Both Rose Hill and El Dorado had similar statistics in games against Mulvane. In week one, El Dorado accumulated 238 yards vs. the Cats while the Rockets had 210. They both gave up large chunks of yards to the Cats 343 to 360.So it might be safe to say on a talent level, El Dorado and Rose Hill are similar.Wellington gave up 355 yards against El Dorado. For the Dukes to see any success this season, the defense has to do better.“I was looking at our defense on Saturday, and sometimes we had five sophomores out there playing at the same time,” said first year head coach Zane Aquilar. “That’s a tough way to go.”Wellington showed much improvement on offense. Wellington had 255 yards in offense including 153 yards passing. The passing game appears to be coming along.It isn’t as if Wellington has not been competitive in the first two games. Wellington was down 14-7 against Clearwater in the first half and tied 6-6 against El Dorado. Many would argue that the Crusaders outplayed the Wildcats in the first 24 minutes.But the second half has been problematic for this young squad which has given up 27 and 28 points in the first two games.The Rockets will feature senior quarterback Grant Moore, a two-year starter, who is 8 of 25 for 98 yards so far this season. Rose Hill has two running backs making yardage. J.J. Carney has accumulated 103 yards on 16 attempts for a 6.44 yard per carry average. Bradly McAllister has 91 yards on 24 attempts.Wellington will go into the game with 564 total yards. Cade Phelps is 11 of 40 for 238 yards. Chris Kop and Colton Glover have each accumulated 133 and 120 yards respectively so far. Runs like the 14-yard touchdown run made by Glover on Saturday when he dragged the whole El Dorado team into the end zone will help this Friday.Joe Ybarra, a sophomore receiver, has four catches for 90 yards. That didn’t include his interception last week. De’Andre Washington, another sophomore, appears to getting his footing with three catches for 70 yards, including a big catch late in the second half vs. the Cats.Aguilar said at this juncture it is about the boys believing in themselves. He is confident that if Wellington competes at the level its capable of, the Crusaders will be victorious Friday night.Wellington-Rose Hill game at a glance:Wellington (0-2) at Rose Hill (0-2), Friday at 7 p.m.Follow the game: Internet: Live twitter blogs on this site, Sumner Newscow.
