    Club News

    Game two of the group stages ended in defeat for the defender against Guinea

    It was a weekend of frustration for Ryan Nyambe and Namibia as the Brave Warriors suffered defeat to Guinea in the second game of the AFCON Qualifiers.

Newly relegated Blackburn Rovers have now resigned themselves to loosing many of their top players in the closed season due to their unsuccessful season just gone which will break the hearts of many of their supporters. One of the first players who will make an exit from Ewood Park is French midfielder Steven N`Zonzi who look set to return to the premier league as their are now a number of clubs battling for the players signature.

On a plus note the side from the north have many targets on their scope for the new season as Steve Kean looks to bolster his squad options with the first of these to be signed being the Portuguese striker Nuno Gomes. The influential striker has just signed a two year deal to take him to Ewood Park on a free transfer as he was released from his previous side Braga at the end of the season.

Another two players who have been signed by kean so far are Danny Murphy and Leon Best who have recently both signed lucrative deals to help the side retake their position in the top flight of English football. Both players arrived on free transfers which is always a bonus for clubs and bring with them a wealth of experience.

Want away winger Junior Hoilett is another player who is close to leaving the club this summer as he is on the verge of a move to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. The player is also said to have held talks with many of the premier leagues top clubs but it look for than likely that the player will look for pastures new in on of Europe’s top leagues. The twenty two year old has just been seen to fly out to Germany to seal this deal so barring a disaster you will see him in the colours of Monchengladbach next season.

Finally rover have also been involved in arranging the transfer of up and coming Ipswich goal keeper Scott Loach who has been on Keans radar for some time and are now looking to hijack an approach from Watford. The young keeper is thought to be the perfect player for Kean to rebuild from the back and it is believe that Loach is very keen on a move up north.

Watford have not won a league game this season, but all is not lost

If Watford want to avoid relegation, they need to follow the lead of Derby in 2000-01 and Blackburn in 1996-97

By Martin Laurence for WhoScored

Two fascinating fixtures bookend the Premier League action this weekend. On Sunday afternoon, the top two meet at Anfield in a game that will help shape the title race. And on Friday night, the bottom two meet at Carrow Road for a very different kind of six pointer.

Norwich approach the game against Watford in terrible form. Since their shock victory over Manchester City in mid-September, they have played six matches, scored two goals and picked up just one point from an available 18. That victory over City is a real outlier in their season. In fact, it accounts for 43% of the points they have won in the campaign so far.

Football League: Preston hit back to beat Blackburn, Exeter take derby spoils

  • Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday draw, Rowett begins with win
  • Sol Campbell loses Southend bow, Shrewsbury sink Sunderland

Preston moved up to second after coming back from two goals down against Blackburn in a Lancashire derby. Things could not have started worse for the hosts when they went 1-0 down within 30 seconds when Sam Gallagher’s rebounded off the post and went in via goalkeeper Declan Rudd’s back. Gallagher doubled the lead 10 minutes later but Preston bounced back in the second-half and level things up through Tom Barkhuizen and Daniel Johnson’s penalty. The game was settled in fitting style when Barkhuizen found the top corner from 25 yards.

Football League: Woodgate gets first Middlesbrough win while Derby lose

• Assombalonga sinks Wigan; Derby slip against Bristol City
• Sheffield Wednesday go top with win against Luton

Jonathan Woodgate said Middlesbrough remain “a work in progress” despite his first win as head coach against Wigan.

Britt Assombalonga’s 23rd-minute header was enough to seal Woodgate’s first three points since succeeding Tony Pulis in the summer. But the Middlesbrough manager, knowing his team were far from convincing, does not want anyone to get carried away and has warned that there will be peaks and troughs throughout his first season in charge.

Tom Cairney’s thunderbolt sees off Blackburn and gives Fulham first win

After suffering a shock opening-day defeat to a newly promoted side, it was imperative for Scott Parker that his Fulham team got their first league win in their clash with Blackburn Rovers at Craven Cottage. But more than that, he wanted to see “bravery” from the Championship favourites to continue playing out from the back - even when the home fans made their frustrations about Fulham’s new style of play perfectly clear.

Parker, though, was vindicated after Tom Cairney’s superb long-range strike in the 35th minute handed the hosts the lead before Aleksandar Mitrovic’s tap-in with nine minutes remaining secured a 2-0 win.

Ten of the best transfers by Championship clubs this summer

A few new (and familiar) faces will be hoping to impress when the Championship season kicks off on Friday night

By Martin Laurence for WhoScored

Following their relegation from the Premier League and the departures of both Aron Gunnarsson and Victor Camarasa, Cardiff City were in desperate need of midfield reinforcements. Will Vaulks is an excellent addition. He chipped in with seven goals and seven assists last season while captaining Rotherham and should prove to be a real asset with and without the ball. Strong in the tackle and great in the air, with a cannon of a throw-in to boot, he’ll be a key player.
