THE SPL today threw out Hearts' request to have their league clash against Inverness Caley Thistle postponed.

The club had asked for a call-off after 12 players were laid low by a flu virus which has swept through the first-team squad this week.

Medical certificates were faxed through to Hampden yesterday afternoon after boss John Robertson was left with just eight fit players at his disposal for tomorrow's Tynecastle meeting. Skipper Steven Pressley and defender Robbie Neilson are already ruled out of tomorrow's clash, with Paul Hartley, Jamie McAllister, Neil MacFarlane, Mark Burchill, Lee Miller, Kevin McKenna, Stephen Simmons and Marius Kizys among those struggling with the virus. The SPL expressed its "sympathy" at Hearts' plight but Robertson's hopes for a call-off were dashed.

Hearts spokeswoman Clare Cowan said: "We will just have to get on with things as best we can and hope for a good result tomorrow."

De Vos plays 90 in Ipswich's 6-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest.

Adrian Serioux comes on in the 77th minute in Millwall's 2-0 loss. Simpson nowhere to be found.

Bircham plays the entire match in QPR's 3-1 win over Watford.

Hume is substituted in the 33rd minute for Tranmere. (illness or injury???)

IT was good to see two of my Tranmere teammates included in this month"s list of the top 50 Football Leagueplayers. But why weren"t there more of the Prenton lads? Me, for example.

Seriously though, the FourFourTwo survey to find the 50 best players in the League was right to highlight the talents of my two young teammates, Iain Hume and Ryan Taylor. Both are hugely talented players. And they are a great credit to the excellent work that goes on behind the scenes here at Prenton Parkwith the young players. Warwick Rimmer has put down some great foundations for the future of the club in the last decade.

You only have to look at some of the names that have come through the ranks in recent years to realise that.

And in Ryan and Iain, there are definitely two players more than capable of emulating the success of the likes of Jason Koumas and Alan Mahon.

I just hope Ryan doesn"t mind being two places behind Iain in the FourFourTwo ranking.

Iain was number 34.

There were only a handful of players from outside the Championship ahead of him

Larry to Man City? Thank God that didn't happen. This would obviously be a step down for Paulie. As I see it the Sky Blues, are a one man outfit with Wright Phillips, and then...... well not much else. Fiancial problems and relegation battles, thats what I see in their future. Best case scenario, Larry should re-sign with Breman, or if he really wants to move to the EPL, there are better clubs for him

Hartlepool 0 Tranmere 1

BRIAN LITTLE admitted he nearly blew Tranmere"s hopes of seeing off play-off rivals Hartlepool.

The Rovers boss took a gamble by playing unfit strikers Iain Hume and Eugene Dadi - and regretted it almost immediately.

Little said: "Eugene had not trained since Thursday while Iain has been sick for two or three days and after five minutes I wanted to take them off."

Pool dominated but couldn"t prevent Rovers substitute Chris Dagnall scoring in the 53rd minute.

Little added: "This business is all about results and we got a good one."

Elliot Godfrey scored the match-winner for Hampton & Richmond Borough in their 1-0 home win over Braintree Town in the Bryco Cup quarter-finals.

I just got back from the match, and it was a cracker. Godfrey in particular had an excellent game, with two wicked strikes from tight angles that almost went in. He's back up front as a striker, but he's also happy to pass the ball, which he is incredibly talented at. Forget Whoregreaves, Godfrey has a great sense of where to put the ball, and is likely to go on to great things in his career. The goal itself was a tremendous mid-air header with a great sense of conviction.

I took a few photos at the match, which I hope to get online fairly soon (along with photos from that other H&RB match a few months back that are still sitting on my hard drive).

Oddly enough there was a camera crew at the match - CNN Britain (or something of the sort). They had American accents, so I'm not sure it was meant for a UK or US audience. I'll keep my eyes peeled, as it would be great to be able to tape the clip and have it available to download.

Hampton & Richmond Borough move on to the semi-finals of the Bryco Cup next week (Tuesday 22 March), and then take on Yeading (of FA Cup fame) in the Middlesex Senior Cup final on Monday 28 March.

Oh yeah, and some guy named Jason deVos played the entire match for Ipswich Town in their 0-1 away win at Cardiff City.

Mika Dronyk played the entire match for Bashley tonight in their shock 2-0 upset over promotion-chasing Tooting & Mitcham United in Ryman Division One. I believe this was Dronyk's second match for Bashley's first-team, as he has featured for the Reserves in recent weeks.

Bashley travel to London to take on Dulwich Hamlet this Saturday. I'm tempted to attend the match, but fear Dronyk may have played tonight simply because it was a mid-week match, allowing the manager to rest key players. Hopefully Dronyk has impressed, as apparently the Bashley manager doesn't spend much time watching his Reserves in action.

On Saturday 12 March, new player discovery Jon Henry-Hayden scored twice for Ashford Town (Middlesex) Reserves in their 4-2 home win over Carshalton Athletic Reserves in the Suburban League Premier Division.

"A fairly straightforward victory saw both Shane Graham and Jon Henry-Hayden score twice, as Ashford advanced to 7th place in the Suburban Premier Division table."

On Wednesday the 16th, Ashford Town (Middlesex) Reserves lost to Brook House Reserves in the Middlesex Premier Cup final. Still waiting for word on whether Henry-Hayden featured.
