Brentford's allocation of tickets for Sunday's Second Division play-off semi-final first leg at Huddersfield go on sale at Griffin Park this morning.

The Merthyr Tydfil chairman, John Reddy, has threatened to close the club and sue the Football Association of Wales rather than play in the Konica League next season. The Martyrs face relegation from the GM Vauxhall Conference after finishing in the bottom three. The FAW want Merthyr in the Konica League in the event of relegation, but the club want to remain in the English pyramid.

Besiktas have became the Turkish champions for the ninth time, taking an unassailable lead in the First Division with two weeks still to play.

Spanish league officials have suspended the Athletico Madrid president, Jesus Gil, from official duties for eight months for insulting a referee and the authorities after a game in November. He is banned from representing the team in any official context, from signing contracts to sitting in the president's box.
