Nigel Adkins is realistic about bottom-placed Reading’s survival chances but has pledged to fight until the end. Press Association “They had a go and maybe on another day Alfie’s (Adam Le Fondre) shot goes in or the referee maybe gives a free-kick for the challenge on the goalkeeper or the linesman puts the flag up for offside when they score. “The referee might give a penalty decision from the challenge from Jos Hooiveld or not as it didn’t happen in the game. Is Le Fondre’s header over the line when Artur Boruc has saved it? I’ve just seen it and it looks like it is 99.9 per cent over the line. “It is not given and we are where we are. We have to be realistic and face the reality of that. But everyone at Reading is going to work very, very hard and we look forward to the next game. We are at the wrong end of the table, everyone is aware of that. We’ve got a big challenge on our hands.” That next match sees an even tougher opponent come to town in the form of Liverpool, although the pre-match scrutiny should not be so intense. Talk in the build-up was about Adkins exacting revenge on the club that so harshly disposed of his services 78 days ago, despite having led Saints to back-to-back promotions. The Reading boss was given a warm reception by all in the Madejski Stadium when he emerged for the match and downplayed any suggestions of ill feeling towards successor Mauricio Pochettino. “He said he was pleased to meet me,” Adkins added. “I haven’t got an issue with him. We shook hands and I have invited him for a drink after I have finished talking to the media.” It is an invitation Pochettino confirmed he accepted, although hopes Adkins will be providing the wine, saying: “I don’t have to bring the wine – he invited me, no? It is a tradition in England that I really admire and appreciate. I wished him all the luck in the world out there and told him it was a pleasure to meet him.” The Royals suffered their seventh successive Barclays Premier League defeat as Adkins’ former club Southampton triumphed in his first match at the Madejski Stadium. Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana netted either side of half-time in a 2-0 victory, which leaves the Berkshire club seven points adrift of safety with just six matches remaining. It is a predicament that Adkins is all too aware of but one which he is attempting to remain upbeat about, highlighting the fine margins that led to the defeat. “I think if you look at the players, especially in the first half, they have put in a lot of effort out there,” he said.

AUCKLAND: Injured New Zealand pace bowlers Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson are “tracking nicely” as the side begin their preparations for the Test series against India, according to captain Kane Williamson.Bowling spearhead Boult broke his hand in the second game against Australia in Melbourne while Ferguson bowled just 11 overs in his Test debut in the first match in Perth before breaking down with a calf strain.Both missed the Twenty20 and One-Day International series against India but Williamson said there are hopes they could be available for the first match against the world’s top ranked Test team that starts on February 21 in Wellington.”They’re tracking nicely,” Williamson said after his side sealed a five-wicket win and 3-0 series sweep of the One-Dayers against India at Bay Oval in Mt. Maunganui.”It’s an exciting opportunity … against one of the best sides in the world.”The injuries to Boult and Ferguson and regular squad member Matt Henry, who broke his thumb in the third Test in Sydney, forced New Zealand to test the depth of their pace bowling stocks against India.Hamish Bennett was recalled after almost three years in the international wilderness, while Kyle Jamieson, who was brought into the Test squad in Australia as cover but did not play, made his debut in the one-day series.Bennett took the most wickets for New Zealand in the one-dayers and was joint top wicket taker in the Twenty20 matches with leg-spinner Ish Sodhi.While expensive in his opening spells, Bennett proved to be a solid death bowler with his ability to mix his pace and length, something noted by Williamson.”We were put under pressure by India, but we were able to have a really good death phase, which helped us keep India to about a par total,” he said.”A lot of positives in different areas, so it’s an opportunity to build on this series and keep moving forward as an ODI side.”The 2.03m-tall Jamieson, however, could have been the best find for the hosts after he was the most economical New Zealand bowler in the ODIs and presented some difficulties with his ability to get the ball to move and lift off a length.He also showed he was a more than capable lower-order batsman when he scored 25 not out and shared a 76-run stand with Ross Taylor that helped New Zealand post a winning total in the second match in Auckland.”An outstanding start from Kyle,” Williamson said. “To get the opportunity to bowl with the new ball and bowl really nicely … he’s an exciting prospect.”Coming in with that height does bring a point of difference, a great attacking weapon.” AgenciesAlso Read: High-flying New Zealand whitewash IndiaAlso Watch: Effigy of Mominul Awal and Dr. Numal Momin burnt at Kalapani, Mankachar.

BRITISH F4 champion Zane Maloney has been confirmed for the Radical Caribbean Cup 2019 final leg in Guyana.A release from the organisers confirmed this, saying, “Fresh from becoming the first driver to win both the British F4 Championship outright and the Rookie Cup, 16-year-old Zane Maloney will join father Sean and uncles Mark and Stuart on the grid in Guyana for the first time.”At Bushy Park, Barbados in September, Zane became the 38th driver to race in the SR3 Cup. The teenager claimed a debut pole position and hat-trick of victories driving father Sean’s SR3. For next month’s final, he will drive former racer David Simpson’s car, which he tested at Bushy Park on his return from the UK last week, before the cars left Barbados for Guyana, courtesy of Tropical Shipping.While Myers has yet to win, the Double Jamaican Modified Production 2 Champion’s strength has been consistency. Six podium finishes, second three times and third three times have racked up the points race after race, giving him a solid chance of chasing the title in his rookie year.His fellow countryman Horatio Brown joined the SR3 Cup with only limited competition experience but has acquitted himself well in the far more experienced company, with the best result of fifth in his nine races.Guyana’s lone representative thus far will be Kristian Jeffrey, a race-winner on his home track in last year’s SR3 Cup finale and second in the other two races. He will be keen to repeat that form after a disappointing September weekend in Barbados, when he returned to the series for the first time this year.Mechanical issues left the former Winter Champion with the best result of fifth during the Williams Industries International, despite which his ‘hit rate’ remains among the best, with seven wins in his 20 appearances, along with a further seven podium finishes, two pole positions and two fastest laps.The full entry list below:Entry list for round 4:16: Stuart Maloney – BAR (Bushy Park Barbados Radical SR3 RS)17: Kristian Boodoosingh – T&T (CR Boodoosingh & Sons Ltd/Fast Parts/Torco Race Fuels/Richtune/Garage 61/TechPoint Tuning Radical SR3 RS)22: Sean Maloney – BAR (Bushy Park Barbados Radical SR3 RS)31: Zane Maloney – BAR (Suzuki/Bushy Park Barbados/Rock Hard Cement/Sol Radical SR3 RS)69: Horatio Brown – JAM (Fast Parts/Torco Race Fuels/Richtune/Garage 61/Techpoint Tuning Radical SR3 RS)86: Mark Maloney – BAR (Rock Hard Cement/Bushy Park Barbados Radical SR3 RS)162: William Myers – JAM (KFC Radical SR3 RS)261: Kristian Jeffrey – GUY (Torginol Paints Radical SR3 RS)888 Luke Bhola – T&T (Bholas Marketing/Fast Parts/Torco Race Fuels/Richtune/Garage 61/TechPoint Tuning Radical SR3 RS)
Despite some concerns in the fall over whether it would play its normal home schedule, the Liverpool ice hockey team will still have its normal slate of games at Lysander Ice Arena during the 2019-20 season.And the Warriors opened with an impressive all-around effort against visiting Auburn last Tuesday night, leaning on its defense to earn a 1-0 victory over the Maroons.They stayed scoreless until the second period, when Liverpool broke through as Connor Boland found the net, assisted by Matt Gagnon and Xavier Springer. Despite all this, Syracuse tied the late amid a pile of players in front of the net late in regulation, and it stayed 3-3 until a shootout, where the Cougars prevailed.So Liverpool went to Saturday’s consolation game against Fulton (who lost to B’ville 3-0) and, this time around, rallied to get into yet another shoot-out, where it ended up defeating the Red Raiders.A rough first period left the Warriors behind 3-1, but it fought back to tie it, 3-3, before both sides got a goal in the final period, setting up another OT and the eventual shootout.Boland tacked on two more goals, with Marco Palumbo stepping up by earning a goal and two assists. Springer had one goal and one assist and Gagnon also got an assist as Welch stopped 38 of Fulton’s 42 shots.Cicero-North Syracuse does not have the same concerns as Liverpool. Having scrimmaged the Warriors on Nov. 27, the Northstars would enter the regular-season fray late last week with three games in as many days.In the first of them, the Northstars hosted CBA/Jamesville-DeWitt last Thursday night at the Twin Rinks where, despite a late scoring surge, it lost 6-4 to the Brothers.It wasn’t until C-NS trailed 5-2 that it really started to try and catch up late in the game. Fueling that comeback attempt, Matt Cramer earned a three-goal hat trick as Tyler Murray had a goal and two assists.Nick Sciore added two assists, with single assists going to Holden Sarosy and Devin Kellogg. But CBA/J-D proved more balanced as six different players scored its six goals, with Tanner Burns and Kodi Dotterer each getting a goal and two assists.Right after, C-NS went to the McQuaid Tournament at Rochester Ice Center, where on Friday it faced Canisius (Buffalo) in the opening round and lost, 4-1, to the Crusaders, and then fell 3-1 to Aquinas in the consonlation game.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story That was one of just 10 shots the Warriors managed all night, but its defense contained the Maroons, limiting it to 18 shots, all of them stopped by James Welch.Good as Welch was here, he was even more sensational in Friday’s opening round of Baldwinsville’s Bobby Conklin Memorial Tournament against reigning state Division I champion Syracuse.Recording 42 saves, Welch not only kept the Warriors in it, he had a lead most of the way thanks to two goals from Boland and another from Gagnon, who joined Springer and Anthony Bentley in the assist column.

Tal Volk | Daily TrojanUSC head coach Steve Sarkisian is taking a leave of absence, Athletic Director Pat Haden announced.Haden’s announcement came after Sarkisian did not show up for the team’s practice on Sunday.Haden said that he asked the second-year head coach to take an indefinite leave of absence after determining it was clear to him that Sarkisian was not in the right state of mind.“It was clear to me that he was unhealthy,” Haden said.Offensive coordinator Clay Helton, who was at Haden’s side during the press conference, will serve as the team’s interim head coach for the second time during his tenure at USC.“It’s an honor,” Helton said. “Fortunately or unfortunately, I’ve been in this position before.”Helton previously coached the Trojans to victory over Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl in 2013.“I’ve spoken to our team and our coaches — they obviously had a great deal of concern for the health of coach Sarkisian,” Haden said. “It was also clear to me the support that Clay has from the team and the staff.”While it remains unclear what exactly led to the decision to temporarily part ways with Sarkisian, it comes just a few days after the Trojans fell to Sarkisian’s former program, an unranked Washington team, 17-12 at the Coliseum.USC (3-2, 1-2 Pac-12) went 12-6 under Sarkisian since he took the helm of the program in 2014 and will have to quickly turnaround to face rival and No. 14-ranked Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, on Saturday.“We’ve got a big task this week with the Notre Dame game, and Clay will do a great job getting our team ready,” Haden said.The Trojans will be facing, perhaps, its toughest three-week stretch of the season with three ranked opponents — the Fighting Irish, Utah, and Cal — on the horizon.Sarkisian’s future with the program, however, remains uncertain.In August, Sarkisian apologized for inappropriate behavior he exhibited at the annual Salute to Troy event, where he appeared to be inebriated while slurring his words.The 41-year-old Sarkisian later admitted to mixing an unspecified medication with alcohol and said that he would seek treatment.
