Norwich complete a thrilling comeback with three goals in the final 10 minutes to draw Middlesbrough 4-4. Brennan subbed off at 59' for Leon Mackenzie who would eventually score the 3rd goal.

Radzinski plays 90' in a 2-1 win over Birmingham.

Serioux never gets off the bench for Millwall.

De Vos plays his usual 90'for Ipswich.

As highburygooner said Hume scores in the 8th minute....but he is subbed off in the 78th.

McKenna sticks to the bench in Hearts' 1-1 draw with Dundee.

Mark Rogers subbed out at the 74' in Stevenage's 3-0 loss to Canvey.

Elliott Godfrey scored Hampton & Richmond Borough's second goal in their 0-2 away win over Folkestone Invicta. This is only their second away win of the season.

Sounds like it was quite the odd match:

-0 at the half a couple of chances either way. Then it all went off in the second half.

57 minutes Folkstone 5 is sent off for laying out Ada, Ashe knocks in the pen.

64 minutes it really got interesting. The Assistant rules a foul against Harper, right in front of me, I have to say that he got it wrong but Harper is not going to complain. The home manager runs 40 yards to berate the two officials. Referee Hoare breaks off from booking the F7 to dismiss the Manager, then books F7! By now a small group of inebriated home fans have run over and are abusing the officials big time ( not a Stewards` Yellow Jacket in sight!). The referee stalks off saying that their lives have been threatened and he is going to abandon the game. Suprised looks all round especially our players - are we to be robbed of a potential away win?

Officials from both clubs head off the the dressing rooms. Tne referee wants the Police called, might take an hour mate!

After ten or twelve minutes the referee decides to restart the game, Everyone troops out, ball is placed down for a free kick and we still have 26 minutes to play. Elliott gets on the end of a cross from Ada in the 76 minute, 2-0 and the home fans are going apoplectic. Fortunately sanity prevails and the rest of the game is played and we gain our second away win.

Oddly enough, Sky Sports' "Final Score" scrolling results on their TV channel initally listed the score as "Folkestone Invicta 1-0 HRBFC". One HRBFC supporter wrote on their message board that, upon seeing this scoreline, he "gave his neighbour's cat an Elliott Godfrey special"... whatever that means. :D

Pesch to miss televised West Ham Clash on Sunday due to injury

West Ham v Derby

West Ham striker Bobby Zamora (ankle) is struggling, while goalkeeper James Walker picked up a knock in training.

Nigel Reo-Coker and Carl Fletcher return but Steve Lomas (calf) is out and Teddy Sheringham (ankle) may make the bench.

Derby striker Paul Peschisolido (hamstring) is struggling for fitness.

Defender Michael Johnson (Achilles) is doubtful, but forward Grzegorz Rasiak is expected to feature despite losing a tooth in the Sunderland defeat.

Guest Jeffery S.

Dani Fernandes looks to be now the 2nd keeper at Paok, they won with him on the bench today 0-1. Amatsidis, formerly no. 2, is now off the team, and the third keeper listed on the squad is an 18 year old.

Considering the starting keeper is 32 this is interesting for Daniel's future.

Good for Dani. If he could get some games and do well, establish himself as No. 1 at PAOK, he good get a leg up on his competition for Canada's No.1.


a) Hirshfeld has no club,

B) Sutton has not signed on as yet,

c) Onstad is out of the picture,

d) Stamatopoulous is playing in the Swedish Second Division, at least a level below the Greek first,

e) Rayner has not broken in to the Lincoln City lineup,

f) Olivieri is still unproven in the pro ranks, but will get a big chance this year if Sutton does not return,

g) Karim and Waganaar are still in school,

h) Begovic, Giacomi and Lindley are playing youth football

I wish him luck, we need someone to emerge.

the keeper you are missing is Brian Rowland currently leading in save percentage in the MISL and with two years in the A League with the Lynx.....could also go to Northern Ireland and that is still being discussed....has played reserves in English DIV 3 at 17....is currently being touted for overseas [has an Irish passport]...recently turned down two opportunities to sign in Eastern Europe...6' 185 lbs strong,technically very sound and agile...would have been last U23 keeper but for a Dec 30 birthdate...watch out for him in the very near future

Thanks downtownboy. Has Rowland not been the backup for the Lynx the last couple of years?

Where did he play in Div 3 reserves? I have been following your posts on the other section. I wish him luck. Hey, I hope they all emerge and give Frank plenty to think about!

I think it was one of the old Russian territories...I think the unstable nature was a concern..although only rumour at this point there he also has been approached by two of the U.S A League teams as well as some early interest from one of the new MLS franchises...however a foreign goalkeeper has to be an immediate starter in MLS to be signed...there might be some wiggle room with the increase in foreign and developmental player slots but they would likely look to field players..we will see in the next couple of months

Klukowski made his Brugge debut for their reserve side as he is regaining match fitness after his injury. He played 90 minutes as they beat KAA Gent's reserve team 2-0. Hopefully he will see some first team action next week. The game report contained the following commentary on him that I am unable to understand so maybe a Dutch speaker could translate:

Debutant Klukowski mag terugblikken op een bevredigende wedstrijd.

rough translation is that he can look at his game as a satisfactory one.

so basically, i guess he did well for coming back from injury

Some action from Sunday for completeness sake:

Fernando Aguiar was subbed out in the 63rd minute as Penafiel were crushed 4-0 by V. Setúbal in Portugal.

Rocco Placentino was subbed out in Cavese’s 2-1 victory of Castel Di Sangro in Serie C2C.

David Masciantonio was red carded in the 87th minute as Monterotondo lost 2-1 to Cecina in Serie D Girone E.

Pesch to miss mid week clash against his suitors Leeds with his injury. Hopefully he can shake it off for saturdays cup clash against Radz and former club Fulham.

Derby v Leeds

Derby are sweating on the fitness of versatile teenager Tom Huddlestone, who is struggling with an ankle problem.

Michael Johnson (Achilles) has returned to contention, but Paul Peschisolido (hamstring) is missing and Mo Konjic (knee) is not ready for a return.

Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell may be without 18-year-old winger Aaron Lennon who is struggling with a toe injury.

Striker Brian Deane, who returned at Stoke after a lengthy absence with a shoulder injury, is also a doubt.

Adrian Serioux and Josh Simpson both played 90 minutes for Millwall Reserves in their 1-1 draw with QPR, in which Serioux came close to goal.

QPR Res 1 Millwall Res 1


Mark McCammon grabbed his second reserve goal of the season as table-topping Millwall recorded a second successive draw at Loftus Road in the space of just seven days.

This time last week Joe Healy was on target in the dying seconds of a Pontin's Holidays Cup clash, but the roles were reversed this afternoon as The Lions went ahead, only for QPR to grab a leveller through Tony Thorpe.

In an evenly fought contest it took the heroics of teenage goalkeeper Alan Brooks to keep a strong Hoops' side at bay during the opening half.

Twice Brooks, making only his fourth reserve start of the season, thwarted the home front line with brave last-gasp saves in one-on-one situations.

Millwall created a number of half-chances, but nothing to really test Hoops' stopper Chris Day.

However, there was little the keeper could do to prevent McCammon opening the visitors' account after the break, with Big Mac's fierce close-range shot crashing in off the post.

Unfortunately the lead was short-lived, and within minutes former Luton frontman Thorpe levelled things up with a finely executed lob that left Brooks grasping at thin air.

Adrian Serioux nearly fired The Lions 2-1 ahead with 18 minutes remaining, only to see his effort crash against the post.

And then as the game entered the final 10 minutes, young Irish striker Mark Quigley turned smartly and let fly with a fierce drive that smacked the crossbar and bounced clear of the danger zone.

Millwall: Alan Brooks, Michael Bostwick, Tony Craig, Marvin Elliott, James Donovan, Dean Pooley, Curtis Weston, Adrian Serioux, Mark McCammon, Mark Quigley, Josh Simpson. Subs not used: Kevin Braniff, Will Hendry, Trevor Robinson, Joe Healy, Marc Ward.
