Joe Ledley is on a collision course with Cardiff City after revealing he needs a hip operation. The Wales international claims his recent dip in form is a result of him not being fully fit, but he is playing through the pain as the Cardiff manager, Dave Jones, does not want to lose his star midfielder for up to three months.

Keith Kettleborough: Midfielder whose artistry and industriousness put him on the fringes of the 1966 England football squad
Saturday 07 November 2009
With his balding head, pallid features and scuttling gait, Keith Kettleborough didn't cut a glamorous figure on the football pitch, even during his prime with Sheffield United in the first half of the 1960s. No matter: the slim Yorkshireman was one of the game's true craftsmen, a subtly constructive midfield general who brought to his work an appealing cocktail of artistry and industry which, during mid-decade as plans were being laid to capture the World Cup, prompted the England manager Alf Ramsey to call him into his training squad.

It took 15 attempts but Ipswich Town have at last won under Roy Keane. David Wright's 66th-minute header at the far post from Liam Rosenior's deep cross proved enough to beat Nigel Clough's Derby County. The win wasn't enough to lift Ipswich, who had been the only League club yet to win this season, off the bottom of the Championship, but four sides above them are within three points, one of them being the Rams, who have earned only two points from eight away games.

Kevin Nolan fired in a 90th-minute winning goal from 18-yards for Newcastle United to end a run of two defeats and two points from four matches. United came from behind to beat Doncaster Rovers 2-1 at St James' Park and return to the top of the Championship. Chris Hughton, about to be named United manager, saw his side fall behind after 18 minutes, when Billy Sharp set up Dean Shiels. Just past the hour Andy Carroll, who had missed several chances, levelled from Ryan Taylor's cross. Rovers' Martin Woods then missed a penalty, United's Zurab Khizanishvili was sent off, but Nolan had the final word.

I have a confession to make. In the past, I have had frequent, intensive contact with children. There were boys, sometimes as young as eight. There were primary schoolgirls. Over a period of a couple of years, I would drive to the White City estate in London, collect boys in my car and take them football training or to a Sunday morning boys' league game in Fulham.
