Sharks dump Gor Mahia out of FKF Shield

first_imgIt compounded what looks like a doomed week for Gor, the Kenyan champions having been also dumped out of the CAF Confederations Cup after losing 2-1 away to Algeria’s USM Alger.Gor held on to survive a 0-0 result after 90 minutes with Sharks guilty of several missed chances.On penalties, Gor’s fairy tale seemed to be developing well when Fredrick Odhiambo saved from Omotto. Francis Mustafa scored for Gor with pascal Ogweno replying scoring Sharks’ second spot kick.Gor’s Ondiek however erased all that advantage skying his penalty over the bar. Sharks went on to score through Bolton Omwenga and Boniface Omondi sent Gad Mathews the wrong way to keep the scores tied at 2-2.Keeper Mathews the turned to face his opposite number and he made no mistake, with Gor failing to keep the tempo with Oluoch striking his effort against the crossbar.It was now left to Duke Abuya to finish off the job and the striker made no mistake, scoring to send Sharks to the semis.-Squad changesIn what has now turned out to be his signature this season, Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr made changes to his squad, sticking to the same group of players that have been playing in the Shield while his first team was rested after only returning from their CAF Confederations Cup sojourn late in the week.Fredrick Odhiambo retained his place in goal, Charles Momanyi started in defense while Ernest Wendo was also preferred in holding midfield, the rest of the team being changed.On the balance of chances created, Sharks should have at least been two up by half time. Kerr’s face turned red in anger at his team’s poor defensive display and no sooner had the half time whictle blown than he marched down to the dressing room for some half time hair dryer.Sharks had the first real chance after 12 minutes, Patillah Omotto’s looped ball from midfield landing on Harrison Mwenda’s path but the winger volleyed the effort wide with a clean path to goal ahead of him.On the other end two minutes later, keeper Gad Mathew made a decisive touch diving from his line to palm Francis Mustafa’s cross away right infront of Bernard Ondiek’s head as he prepared to glance it into the net.-More chancesNonetheless, Sharks continued dominating the chances and on the 20th minute, Mwenda was gifted with another chance when Duke Abuya’s cut back from the right found him at the edge of the box, but thw winger’s connection went over.Sharks thought they had broken the deadlock in the 27th minute when Eric Kapaito tapped the ball home from close range after George Abege’s knock down, but his goal was ruled out for offside.The visitors had two more chances towards the break, all going begging. Mwenda’s cross from the right destined for Abuya at the far post ended in disappointment as the striker failed to land a decisive touch with acres of space ahead of him.Two minutes to the break, Kapaito saw his header go off the bar after nodding the ball beyond Fredrick Odhiambo in goal from an Abuya chip.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Kariobangi Sharks players celebrate their post-match penalties win over Gor Mahia in the Football Kenya Federation Shield Quarter finals on September 2, 2018.

‘Wigan are protected’ – Chairman reveals termination clause in Mackay contract

first_imgWigan chairman Dave Whelan has revealed the club have the right to terminate Malky Mackay’s contract if the newly appointed manager is found guilty by the FA’s investigation into last season’s text scandal.The Scot was named as the successor to Uwe Rosler on Wednesday afternoon, just three months after he had admitted sending text messages during his time as Cardiff boss which he deemed were “disrespectful of other cultures”.His appointment was quickly questioned in a statement from anti-discrimination body Kick It Out, while Wigan captain Gary Caldwell gave the boss his backing in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT.The FA is continuing to investigate the details of those messages and may speed up their findings now Mackay is back in employment.And, while insisting he is confident there will be no further sanctions and that he has every right to offer the new boss a route back into football, Whelan said the club have taken steps to safeguard themselves should the FA throw the book at the 43-year-old.“I’ve read and listened to what Malky did and he’s been totally up front and honest,” said the Latics chief.“What he did and what he said I can’t see it [the investigation] really going too far. He’s been up front, he’s said he’s done that and ‘I’m very sorry’.“I don’t think there’s anything really to investigate but, that is in the contract, we have protected the football club and Malky has been absolutely 100 per cent open about it all.“We have spoken to the FA, there’s nothing happened, I don’t think there’s anything in the pipeline.“He admits what he did and he’s apologised for what he said. I accept that fully and totally. I just want to get on with the great game of playing football.”For his own part, Mackay did his best to clear the dark clouds which continue to hang over his head.“I made mistakes,” he said“I’m absolutely not racist. I have taken on an educational programme in terms of diversity and that will be ongoing.“I will continue to learn and educate myself going forward.” 1 Wigan chairman Dave Whelan last_img read more

Manchester City eye record against Swansea

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s defensive wall (from L) Fabian Delph, Eliaquim Mangala, Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne jump to block a free-kick during their English Premier League match against Man United, at Old Trafford in Manchester, on December 10, 2017 © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 12 – Manchester City look unstoppable in their relentless surge towards the Premier League title, and only have lowly Swansea standing in the way of Pep Guardiola’s men setting a new record of consecutive wins on Wednesday.City are 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League and the managers of Manchester United and Chelsea both effectively conceded defeat in the title race at the weekend. Their victory against Jose Mourinho’s United on Sunday was their 14th straight win in the Premier League — a single season record that also equalled the best-ever run Arsenal established over two seasons in 2002.Yet despite their frightening form, City defender Kyle Walker is urging caution.“We have to keep our feet on the floor and keep working hard, preparing physically and mentally,” he said.“We have another important one on Wednesday against Swansea. We have to keep getting three points.”Swansea City’s Wilfried Bony (R) passes the ball during their English Premier League match against Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge in London, on November 29, 2017 © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISGuardiola has declared repeatedly that his team will lose a league match at some point this season but few people would expect that to happen at second-from-bottom Swansea.David Silva is in dazzling form, with goals in each of his past two appearances and a man-of-the-match display on Sunday but the Premier League’s leading scorers have an array of talent supporting him.However there could be consequences on and off the field following derby victory. Captain Vincent Kompany was substituted after an hour with what appeared to be the latest in a sequence of muscle injuries.With John Stones out until early January with a hamstring injury, it means Guardiola has just two fit senior centre-backs — Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala.And the Football Association has demanded answers from both United and City following reports of an ugly fracas in the Old Trafford tunnel after the match that reportedly left City assistant coach Mikel Arteta bloodied.Guardiola must decide whether to recall striker Sergio Aguero, who was an unused substitute on Sunday, after Gabriel Jesus played in a front three against United alongside Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane.Swansea striker Wilfried Bony may feel he has a point to prove against his former club.Bony had a disappointing year-and-a-half in a City shirt, scoring just 10 goals in 46 appearances after joining them from Swansea in January 2015.An uninspiring season on loan at Stoke failed to rebuild his reputation and the Ivory Coast forward is now back at the Liberty Stadium for a second spell.After failing to score in his first eight games back at Swansea, Bony has now found the net in each of his past two. He struck on Saturday as they beat West Brom 1-0, climbing off the bottom of the Premier League and easing some of the pressure on manager Paul Clement.“We have to go into our next game with no fear,” said winger Nathan Dyer.“Manchester City are doing very well so we will have to ensure we are concentrating for the full game and then take the chances we create.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Boost for Stoke! Star man Bojan set for Premier League return

first_img Stoke City star Bojan 1 Stoke’s Spanish maestro Bojan Krkic is set to return to Premier League action.The playmaker, who arrived at the Britannia Stadium from Barcelona last summer, hasn’t played since suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury in January.But he completed his long-awaited return by playing 85 minutes against Luton in the League Cup on Tuesday and manager Mark Hughes is confident he can get back to his best following his positive performance in a penalty shoot-out win over the Hatters.“He played a decent amount of time tonight and he is only going to get better,” said the Potters boss, who side drew 3-3 with the League Two side after 120 minutes.“We saw a lot of his quality, he started to tire toward the end but that was probably expected.“He was always looking to go forward and find those key passes, so we were pleased with him and he will come on a bundle after that.”last_img read more

Officers’ names to stay secret

first_imgThe Los Angeles Police Commission voted Tuesday to confirm its closed-door decision to withhold the names of officers who use serious force against the public, drawing the condemnation of civil libertarians. With little discussion, the panel unanimously underscored a directive approved in December after the police union threatened to sue to keep officers’ names secret. Civil libertarians, lawyers and the media have used the reports, with their context and thorough accounts of incidents, to track misconduct and hold the LAPD accountable. Commission President John Mack denied that the decision was at odds with a pledge to be more open and accountable, saying the public is better served by the anonymous case summaries the panel has begun posting online. “We’re adding information,” he said. “We feel equally strongly about protecting and respecting the due-process rights of police officers.” “We still are of the opinion that the entire chief’s report is confidential and should not be released,” he said. State law gives much deference to peace officers when it comes to their personnel information, but there are three cases before the state Supreme Court that could set important precedents, said Terry Francke of the open government group Californians Aware. The high court is considering a San Diego case regarding the release of officer information in the disciplinary process; an Oakland case about the release of officers’ names and salaries; and a statewide case on whether third parties such as the state Peace Officer Standards and Training agency can release information. Meanwhile, California has a patchwork of policies that vary from city to city. “I don’t think there’s a practice that most departments follow. It’s an individual decision by each agency how they handle it,” said Steve Krull, president of the California Police Chiefs Association. “There are some things that are governed by state law, but this isn’t one of them.” Dan Laidman, (213) 978-0390 dan.laidman@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Like most other law enforcement agencies, the Los Angeles Police Department will continue to release officers’ names in the immediate aftermath of shootings. The change relates to the reports the chief prepares for the commission at the conclusion of use-of-force investigations. The Police Protective League plans to keep pressing the panel to withhold the entire chief’s report because it is based on officers’ compelled statements and includes analysis of their actions, said Hank Hernandez, general counsel for the union. last_img read more

Frank de Boer plans to look Crystal Palace’s ‘own kitchen’ before splashing cash

first_img1 New manager Frank de Boer will take a good look in Crystal Palace’s “own kitchen” before deciding where to further strengthen the squad.Chelsea’s 21-year-old midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek was confirmed on Wednesday as the first arrival following the Dutchman’s appointment.Defender Jairo Riedewald is expected to soon head to Selhurst Park in a £7.5million transfer from De Boer’s former club Ajax.Holland goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is another reported target, said to be on a loan deal from Barcelona where he has not been able to oust number one Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.De Boer has been running the rule over the Palace squad at a training camp at St George’s Park before stepping up preparations for the pre-season campaign, which kicks off at Maidstone United on Saturday and will include several players from the under-23s squad.The Dutchman, a graduate of the Ajax academy, is determined to bring some of the Eagles’ own talent through before splashing out on fresh resources.“If you want to buy other players, first you have to look in your own kitchen and we have some talented players,” De Boer said on the official Crystal Palace website.The Dutch coach, who took over following Sam Allardyce’s sudden departure earlier in the summer, added: “People (at Palace) are very nice, very helpful and really want to make something good out of it.“Also the players, they are giving 100 per cent in every training (session), it is good to work, so I have nothing to complain about right now.“It is more about getting the (fitness) load into their body, then next week we will go to more shorter games and the intensity getting higher and higher.“That is our build-up and in between we are hopefully going to modify our system better and better.”Loftus-Cheek will be part of a 25-man squad which heads out to Hong Kong next week to take part in the Premier League Asia Trophy, a tournament which also includes Liverpool, Leicester and West Brom.

‘Don’t blame Gareth Southgate’s tactics – Harry Kane should have scored’

first_imgSam Allardyce has defended England manager Gareth Southgate and says the Three Lions’ finishing from open play let them down throughout the World Cup.Dreams of reaching a first World Cup final since 1966 were shattered on Wednesday, as England fell to a 2-1 extra-time defeat to Croatia in a nerve-shredding semi-final.England took an early 1-0 lead through Kieran Trippier’s free-kick but were left ruing a series of missed chances in a dominant first-half, as Croatia took control after the break.They piled pressure on the Three Lions and Ivan Perisic’s 68th minute goal took the game to extra-time, before Mario Mandzukic netted with just ten minutes left to seal their place in the final.Southgate has become a cult hero back in Blighty during England’s run in Russia, but a number of fans criticised the boss for his late substitutions and tactics – which were also slated by Croatian players after the game. England manager Gareth Southgate after Wednesday’s defeat to Croatia Allardyce says the England captain should have squad the ball to Sterling for a tap-in But Allardyce insists the Three Lions boss couldn’t have done much more.Instead he said a key moment in the first-half, where captain Harry Kane hit the post with the goal at his mercy, was a great example of where it went wrong for England in Russia.Speaking on Thursday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Allardyce said: “What went against us was that the quality of our own finishing in open play – it let us down.“Had we gone in 2-0 up, I don’t think there was any chance Croatia would have recovered from that.“Particularly the double miss from Harry – as a striker, you’re employed not to miss those chances when they come along.“I don’t want to be unkind to Harry Kane, because he’s an absolutely brilliant striker, but Raheem Sterling was in a much better position and that little ball across the box and a little tap in would have made it more certain. 3 3 3 “But those margins were so small, I wouldn’t put it down to wrong tactics by Gareth or Gareth not being reactive quick enough.“He might well think that himself, because we all do that as managers.“We all come off the field when we’ve lost and think, ‘what did we contribute to try and help the team to win, did we make it worse or could we have done better?’“We all go through that process as managers.“But I couldn’t see much in terms of the tactics that we could have done better.”Listen back to Sam Allardyce on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above Kane hit the post with this effort from a tight angle against Croatia last_img read more
