Fortune smiles on Tranmere League One

Tranmere Rovers4 Sheffield Wednesday2

TRANMERE moved up to second place as Wednesday ended a bitter clash with 10 men after central defender Guy Branston, who had been booked in the first half, was shown a straight red card in the second half . Calvin Zola, a close-season signing who failed to make the grade with Newcastle and spent last season on loan at Oldham, opened the scoring for Tranmere with a firm header in the 11th minute from a Ryan Taylor cross. A raking drive from Zola, 19, was only fractionally wide but, in the 18th minute, Michael Jackson, another close season signing for Tranmere, scored at the far post following a Gareth Roberts corner. However, Wednesday clawed their way back into the game, and Steve MacLean pulled back a goal in the 27th minute. But Wednesday's anger at the insistence of Merseyside Police that this game be played on a Friday night intensified two minutes later when the home side were awarded a dubious penalty. Guy Branston seemed clearly to play the ball first in a tackle on Iain Hume and the linesman nearest to the incident did not raise his flag but referee Nigel Miller pointed to the spot and Taylor fired in the penalty. On the stroke of half-time, midfielder Guylain Ndumbu Nsungu clinically scored a second for Wednesday from a pass by Steve MacLean to give hope to the visitors. But events throughout seemed to conspire against Wednesday and Iain Hume's clincher midway through the second period came when he appeared to push Branston to gain possession. And Branston's misery was completed 15 minutes from time when he was sent off for elbowing Ivory Coast international Eugene Dadi. Tranmere: (4-4-2): Achterberg; Taylor, Jackson, Sharps, Goodison (Beresford 76); Harrison (Whitmore 16), Rankine, Hall, Roberts; Hume, Zola (Dadi 60). Subs: Howarth (g), Loran, Beresford. Sheffied Wed (4-4-2): Lucas; Bullen, Collins, Branston, Heckingbottom; McGovern (Proudlock 78), Whelan, Marsden, Ndumbu Nsungu (Wood 78); MacLean, Peacock. Subs: Poulter (g), Brunt, McMahon. Booked: Branston, Heckingbottom, Bullen. Sent off: Branston. Referee: N Miller (Co Durham).

Adrian Serioux and Josh Simpson both started for Millwall today against Reading. Both players went the distance, with Adrian picking up a yellow card in the 54th minute, and neither figuring in the scoring, although from the BBC text play-by-play both seemed quite involved in the action.

According to Skysports, Jim Brennan is once again not in the line up or on the bench for Norwich. The match is set to start at 12:15 EST.

Which tells the take of how deep down the depth chart he is, since Premiership rule prevetn David Bentley, one of the left sided players ahead of him, from playing against Arsenal, the team that loaned him to Norwich.

MLS Rapids Earthquakes

Colorado 0, San Jose 0

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Joe Cannon made two key saves on shots by former teammate Landon Donovan to help the Colorado Rapids tie the San Jose Earthquakes 0-0 Saturday night.

Pat Onstad made four save in his fifth shutout of the season for the Earthquakes (8-7-7).

Cannon, who won the MLS Cup with San Jose in 2001, stopped Donovan, a member of the U.S. national team, in the 30th minute and again three minutes later to help the Rapids (8-7-9) remain in third place in the Western Conference. Cannon had nine saves in his 10th shutout.

First, Donovan beat defender Nat Borchers into the Colorado box before shooting at the onrushing Cannon, who smothered the ball. Three minutes later, Donovan shot from eight yards and Cannon made another good save.

The second half began with a flurry for San Jose, which had four scoring chances in the first five minutes.

Midfielder Ronnie Ekelund had two shots in that span, including a shot in the 47th minute through traffic that Cannon stopped with his left leg. A minute later, Brian Mullan moved into the Colorado box unguarded, but Cannon stopped his shot with his chest.

(DeRo subbed in the 79th minute)

Well how do you like that? They'd love this guy in England.

Good on Paul. If it's time to move on, don't prick about. Move on.

Nsaliwa plays another 90 for Saarbrucken in the Bundesliga 2 as Saarbrucken draws 0-0 with Energie Cottbus. Stalteri is not slated to start for Bremen today, but De Guzman is for Hannover.

If Frank is very concerned with players getting 1st team action, why then doesn't Nsaliwa (who plays regularly at a high level) get called?

De Guzman plays the full match for Hannover, picking up a yellow in the 77th minute. Hannover scored a late equalizer from somebody named Mertesacker to draw 1-1 with Borussia Dortmund.

Stalteri doesn't get off the bench as Bremen lose 2-1 to Wolfsburg. Serves them right for not playing Paul.

Jazic played 90 as Kuban surprisingly defeated Locomotive Moscow 2-1 at home. They are starting to play betterand are now tied with Dinamo Moscow for a non-relgation spot although Dinamo has a game in hand. I did not watch the Kuban game on tv as I was getting drenched watching Shinnik defeat Torpedo Moscow in the pouring rain.
