The Sports Matrix: Thursday 10 March 2011

Birmingham held by Heiting a goal

India breeze past Dutch in Delhi

Liverpool without Gerrard in Braga

Hamilton queries his 2011 McLaren

Lewis Hamilton has doubted the ability of his new McLaren car to win him the title this year, after a poor day of testing in Spain, where it completed only 57 laps. “Do I believe I have a car to win the world championship at the moment? I don’t,” he said. MORE

Smith: PSV better than Sporting

Rangers manager Walter Smith expects a harder match tonight at PSV Eindhoven than the last round with Sporting Lisbon. “I feel this will be a tougher game,” he said. “PSV are certainly steadier and they are on a good run of form and are top of the league.”

Wilkinson: Team better with Flood

Jonny Wilkinson has admitted that the England team is playing better without him in it. “I guess the best evidence you can have is to look at it results-wise and flow-wise,” he said of recent performances with Toby Flood playing at fly-half instead of him. MORE

Opinion: James Lawton

Far from creating their own siege, Spurs were obliged to operate on a foot hardly employed in Italy – the back one. Here, they had a special debt to their scuffling Brazilian Sandro, who was most conspicuous in midfield. MORE

Solid Spurs hold off Milan to progress

A brave defensive performance from Tottenham Hotspur saw them progress into the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time, as they drew 0-0 with Milan at White Hart Lane. After an even start, the Italian side came to dominate the first half, thanks to the passing of Clarence Seedorf from deep and the intelligent movement of Alexandre Pato up front. Their best chance came when William Gallas had to clear a deflected Robinho shot off the line after Heurelho Gomes had come too far from his line. The Brazilian goalkeeper also had to make saves from his compatriots Pato and Robinho. Spurs’ best chances came thanks to Peter Crouch’s height: he put one header wide, while Rafael van der Vaart nearly scored from a knock-downs. As the game went on Milan struggled to break down Spurs’ excellent defence, well marshalled by Gallas and Michael Dawson. MORE

Schalke advance to quarter-finals

Schalke progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after defeating Valencia 3-1 (4-3 on aggregate) last night. Two goals from Jefferson Farfan plus a Mario Gavranovic effort cancelled out Ricardo Costa’s opener for Valencia.

Robinson wants an eye on Hartley

Scotland coach Andy Robinson has reminded the referee for Sunday’s match to watch the English hooker carefully. “What we don’t want to happen is these scrums getting stood up,” he said, “I believe at times that [Dylan] Hartley does that.” MORE
