Fiamenyo rescues AFC as Gor hold on top spot

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards Harun Nyakha tackles Zoo Kercho Stanlaus Okiya.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, May 14 – Ghanaian Gilbert Fiamenyo stepped off the bench to score an 86th minute goal to save AFC Leopards from the jaws of a third successive defeat as they fought back to draw 1-1 with new boys Zoo Kericho in Machakos.At the Mumias Sports Complex, Meddie Kagere’s 14th minute goal was all Gor Mahia needed as they cemented their hold on the top of the Kenyan Premier League standings, beating hosts Nzoia Sugar 1-0. Posta Rangers meanwhile, failed to remain at par with the leaders after they were frustrated to a barren draw by Nakumatt FC at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.In Ruaraka, defending champions Tusker FC picked up a fifth run on the trot with a 2-1 home win over Sony Sugar, remaining fourth in the standingsIn Machakos, under pressure AFC Leopards were staring at another loss having already dropped points against Gor Mahia and Sony Sugar.“It is yet another game we are conceding from a set piece and I think it is something we have to address. It is quite sad that we have not performed over the last three games but I think getting a point is encouraging enough for us ahead of the next game,” AFC Leopards assistant coach Dennis Kitambi said after the match.Zoo head coach Sammy Okoth was disappointed with the result, saying he felt his side should have wrapped up the game with the chances they had.“These are two points dropped for us. We had scoring chances but we did not use them. We controlled most of the game but I think it is a matter of experience, we are learning as we go on,” Okoth noted.AFC Leopards Fans.After a goalless draw in the first half, Zoo upped the tempo in the second half and were rewarded with a 60th minute goal when Johnston Ligare leaped highest inside the box to head in a Geoffrey Gichana corner.Zoo had run rings around Ingwe and should blame themselves for throwing away the lead.After going ahead, Nicholas Kipkurui had a chance to double the lead in the 70th minute with a snap shot from outside the area but he was denied by Gabriel Andika in the AFC Leopards goal.Minutes later, Bernard Odhiambo had a one-on-one chance with Andika after beating the Ingwe defense, but he could not find a way past the shot stopper.But Stewart Hall’s decision to throw into the fray Fiamenyo and Allan Katterega who had started on the bench paid dividends with the Ghanaian equalizing four minutes from time scoring his fifth goal of the season after controlling a freekick from Robinson Kamura.Gor Mahia striker Meddie Kagere wheels away in celebration after scoring the winner in K’Ogalo’s 2-1 conquest over Sony Sugar at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on April 15, 2017.

Wenger praises Arsenal’s response to Stoke defeat after Toon win

first_imgArsene Wenger has praised the response from his players to bounce back with back to back wins after last weekend’s defeat to Stoke.The Gunners brushed aside Galatasary in midweek 4-1 and won by the same scoreline against Newcastle on Saturday.Wenger recieved criticism from sections of the away fans at the Brittania Stadium last week but after returning to winning ways the Reds boss praised his players response.“It is about winning games thats my job, we have responded well to the Stoke game with two good performances and we’ve scored goals,” the Frenchman said.“I picked quite an offensive team today, but we looked defensively stable and always looked dangerous going forward. In the end I believe it was a very convincing performance.“The under-fire boss faced criticism for resting big named players during their midweek Champions League win in Turkey but the 65-year old has backed his decision.“We did benefit [from resting players midweek] because Sanchez was on the edge, Giroud was ineligable anyway and Welbeck has played a lot of games and I left Cazorla at home – who in 2014 has played the most games for Arsenal. So they all needed a little breather and we took advantage of it today.”last_img read more

EBay to rival Craigslist in classified advertising

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! EBay, the Internet auction leader, has quietly introduced a new online classified advertising service in the United States. The new service, called Kijiji, pits eBay, based in San Jose, against a company it partly owns – Craigslist, the San Francisco-based company that manages classified ad sites for 300 cities, which attract 12million new ad listings each month. EBay bought a 25percent stake in Craigslist in 2004. Kijiji, which means “village” in Swahili, is one of eBay’s several classified advertising efforts outside the United States. It is the market leader in Canada, Germany, Italy and Taiwan. EBay introduced the Kijiji site in the United States without fanfare last month, a move that was reported Tuesday on the Web site of The Wall Street Journal. The new site has separate classified ad pages for 220 cities and allows users to buy and sell items in a variety of categories such as antiques, cars, motorcycles and pets. “This is going to be our classified ad play in the United States,” eBay spokesman Hani Durzy said. “We look at it as competition to Craigslist and other platforms. But we think there is room for competition.” Durzy said eBay is planning to keep its stake in Craigslist. EBay plans to attract users to its new site by buying advertisements on search engines and by ensuring that listings appear in unpaid, or natural, search engine results. There are no plans to direct eBay traffic to the site, Durzy said. Craigslist’s chief executive, Jim Buckmaster, said: “One of the beauties of viewing our world through public service goggles is that there is no need to worry about what other companies are doing. “Many companies offer classifieds, but since we don’t concern ourselves with considerations such as market share or revenue maximization, we don’t think of them as competition, or as a challenge to Craigslist.”last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE: Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce responds to Snodgrass and Wilshere links

first_imgAston Villa manager Steve Bruce has admitted to talkSPORT the club are ‘exploring’ a potential deal for Robert Snodgrass and are also interested in signing Arsenal outcast Jack Wilshere.The Villans boss is confident he has a squad capable of challenging for promotion after finally finding their feet in the new season.Villa suffered a poor start to the campaign – losing two of their first three Championship games – but bounced back by beating Norwich 4-2 in the league and then Wigan 4-1 to progress in the EFL Cup.But Bruce is still keen to strengthen his side further before the window shuts.The club are rumoured to be chasing a season-loan move for West Ham winger Snodgrass – who has not settled in London since his £10million move from Hull City – while Villa are also one of the many sides linked with a move for Wilshere, who is also out of the first team picture at Arsenal.And, when quizzed by Alan Brazil and Sam Allardyce on Thursday’s Sports Breakfast show, Bruce admitted interest in the Premier League men, but admitted they may not have the financial power to secure both.“Snoddy is somebody I’ve known for a long time – I bought him for Hull – so that’s something we’re looking into and exploring,” he told talkSPORT.“The Jack Wilshere one – hey, who wouldn’t want Jack Wilshere? But I don’t know whether we’re capable of landing him and let’s not forget he’s only 25.“People have said that I’ve got millions and million to spend, where it’s been the complete opposite. With financial fair play, unfortunately we haven’t got millions and millions to spend so I’ve got to be a little bit prudent, see what we can do and try and balance the books.“In that respect it’s been a very difficult summer, but an enjoyable one.“I think the vast majority of supporters understand that. If they think I’m going to breeze in just before last Christmas and turn it around within six months, that ain’t gonna happen.“But thankfully we’re starting to have the makings of a very decent squad, so I’m very confident of where we sit at the minute and very confident we’ll make a fist of it.”last_img read more
