Football: Pride not enough as bereft Derby face United

THERE WERE all kinds of receptions at clubs after the "Battle of Britain" - never before has so little been done by so many - but spare a thought, if you can, for the manager of Manchester United. Sir Alex Ferguson makes William Wallace look flimsy when it comes to Scottish patriotism and, for the forseeable future, his numerous English charges will be able to remind him of their part in the running down of the saltire.

Football: McCarthy bemoans bad luck of the Irish

GREEN WAS the colour; and if the pallor of one or two Republic of Ireland players matched their shirts on a rough crossing over the Marmara Sea back to Istanbul after Wednesday's goal-less draw in Bursa, it will soon be replaced by the green eye of envy as they contemplate a summer watching Turkey, England, Slovenia and the rest competing in the European Championship finals.

Football: Ireland call on Connolly to convert chances

David Connolly has been told he will replace Robbie Keane, whose foolish yellow card after scoring in the 1-1 draw in Dublin on Saturday means he is suspended for the return leg.

Football: Kelly and Kennedy add to Republic's injury problems

THE LEEDS United full-back, Gary Kelly, and the Manchester City winger, Mark Kennedy, have both withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad to meet Turkey in Saturday's European Championship play-off match at Lansdowne Road.
