Hume plays in a 1-1 draw with Tranmere. Bircham played for QPR today as well.

Hume apparently missed a penalty, that was retaken in any event and was missed again by another player, who was able to collect the rebound and score.

Bircham started in QPRs win over Stoke, second half Gallen goal for a 0-1, then Marc was subbed out. But the big play was when Taggart took him down on a foul and was red-carded first half. The opposing coach basically accused him of faking the fall to draw the card. Bircham's trainer said this:

"Tony Pulis has called my player a cheat and I will have a look at it. I haven't seen the video but he obviously has.

"It's a very sad day for me when one of my players is branded in that way.

"Me and Tony go back a long way but I think he should talk about his own players and not mine."

More, Brennan did not dress for Norwich, 2-2 vs. Portsmouth.

Pesch did not get off the bench for Derby who drew scoreless to Sunderland.

Dunfield subbed on late for Bury who beat Macclesfield. Rayner sat on the bench for Lincoln City, who drew.

Pozniak has scored twice for Haugesund as they won away in Norway 2nd tier 1-2 vs. Sandefjord. Odd for him to score at all never mind twice.

We'll have to stay up on Norway as Bernier's Tromso is the only team who can stop Rosenborg's 14 leagues in a row.

Stephen Ademolu played his usual 90 minutes (and picked up a yellow) when Trelleborg managed to clinch a 1-1 draw playing relegation candidate Örgryte at home. Trelleborg is now officially relegated from the premier - three matches left to play and 10 points up to the play-off position.

Sita-Taty Matondo came on as a late sub at 86' when Åtvidaberg defeated Falkenberg 3-0 at home. Since main competitor Assyriska also won, Åtvidaberg is still 6 points away from promotion play-off with three matches left.

Well, it looks like Lars didn't impress in his outings with Dundee United. Dundee United recalled keeper Paul Jarvie, who was on loan to Forfar Athletic (Scottish 3rd tier!), and Jarvie played the whole match in a 0-3 loss to Celtic. Lars on the bench. [V]

Jazic was subbed out in the 52 minute shortly after the second goal as Kuban lost 3-0 to league leaders and Champions League participants CSKA Moscow (Red Army). He was playing in midfield. Result not a big surprise and they will remain 1 point behind a non-relegation spot if Zenit St. Petersburg defeats Perm at home tomorrow as expected to regain 1st spot. The next group of teams are 4 points ahead of Kuban with 5 games to play.

Perm managed to tie Zenit 0-0. Kuban are now 2 points from safety.

Rob Friend(also picked up a yellow) just scored for Molde against Songdal and the score is 2-1 Sogndal.

Odd Greenland is losing 4-2 against Oslo, don't know if OO is playing but I guess he is.

Friend was voted best player in spite of the loss, by vg.no got in a whole game for Sogndal, who look sure to drop a division.

Occean did play the whole game for Odd.

In the second tier, Budalic also played 90 alongside Pozniak, who in spite of the two goals was not considered best player by vg.no.

Klukowski played 90 for La Louvière who continue their great season, just a few points off the Belgian lead, by beating Westerlo 1-2.

Bircham sparks fury

QPR midfielder Marc Bircham insists he is no cheat - and says he has a fat lip to prove it.

His first-half flare-up with Gerry Taggart resulted in Bircham lying on the floor and the veteran defender red-carded.

A furious Taggart claimed he had merely pushed Bircham, and said his opponents had made a meal of the incident.

And Stoke boss Tony Pulis accused Bircham of cheating, saying: "The kid has thrown his head back and even with video evidence it is very difficult to show Gerry has clubbed him."

But Bircham said: "I'm getting slaughtered but if I'm the bad guy, how come I've got this fat lip? Draw your own conclusions.

"I'm supposed to be a cheat but I'm the victim here. It's not pleasant when a few thousand fans are calling you a cheat and bottles are flying past you."

Kevin Gallen clinched it for QPR with a clinical finish in the 68th minute. It was his side's sixth league win in succession.

Penalty puzzle for Tranmere

By Peter Keeling

Tranmere Rovers 1 Luton Town 1 MIKE NEWELL went to Anfield in October 1986 with Luton and scored a hat-trick against the team of the Eighties. Eighteen years later, the Luton manager found it much harder to draw against Tranmere and preserve their unbeaten record. The runaway leaders struggled and Newell admitted: "Rovers tested us more than any other club this season, but we snatched a point with a great cross from Kevin Nicholls and a far-post header from Chris Coyne." Tranmere had taken the lead following a twice-taken, twice-saved penalty. Iain Hume's first attempt was saved by Dino Seremet, but referee Tony Bates decided he had moved which belatedly allowed regular taker Ryan Taylor back, after treatment, to try his luck. Seremet saved again but Taylor netted the rebound. Tranmere manager Brian Little said: "That was the most bizarre situation.

We were awarded a penalty, and then penalised by our chosen taker not being allowed back into play." Tranmere (4-4-2): Achterberg; Taylor, Goodison, Sharps, Roberts; Hall, Rankine, Harrison, Beresford (Whitmore 81); Dadi (Zola 58), Hume. Subs: Howarth (g), Linwood, Dagnall. Goal: Taylor (32). Booked: Dadi, Hall, Roberts, Sharps. Luton (4-4-2): Seremet; Foley, Davies, Coyne, Davis; Brkovic, Nicholls, Robinson, Underwood; McSheffrey, Vine. Subs: Brill (g), Leary, Blinkhorn, Showunmi, Keane. Goal: Coyne (76). Booked: Brkovic, Coyne, Nicholls, Robinson. Referee: A Bates (Staffs).
