Spurs will bounce back – Sigurdsson

first_img He added: “We showed during the season that we are more than capable. Even though (we’ve had) a couple of bad results, we won’t start doubting ourselves. “It’s down to us now and we have just got to make sure we are playing the way we’ve been playing throughout the season.” Manager Andre Villas-Boas made the expected changes after the 4-1 defeat against Inter in the Europa League last Thursday, which still saw his side progress to the quarter-finals on the away goals rule. Wales international Gareth Bale was suspended for the European tie against Inter, and Sigurdsson felt fatigue should not just be used to explain why Spurs failed to deliver the required performance on Sunday. “I don’t want to be making excuses, but the 120 minutes probably played a bit of a part from Thursday night and also the travelling, but we could have played better even if we were tired,” he said. Sigurdsson feels the Spurs squad can regroup over the international break. “We would have liked another game in a few days to make things right and get another three points on the table, which is important, but maybe it is a good thing because we can go away and reflect on what we have been doing in the past few games and make it right,” he said. Press Association Spurs dropped to fourth in the Barclays Premier League after a lacklustre display at White Hart Lane against Fulham was settled by a goal from former striker Dimitar Berbatov. It was a second-straight league defeat, and allowed rivals Arsenal to close the gap to just four points, with a match in hand and far superior goal difference. The Iceland midfielder, though, claims Spurs must concentrate on getting themselves back in form over the final eight league games, and he said: “We just need to pick ourselves up, stay together and perform well until the end of the season. It (a top-four finish) is in our hands and we are in a good position to make sure we get the Champions League spot.” center_img Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson insists Tottenham are not about to start doubting they can qualify for the Champions League.last_img read more

Oxlade-Chamberlain ready to right wrongs

first_img Press Association “We are very disappointed, especially with the first half,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told “We know we are better than that so in that sense we are gutted. “But these things happen in football and it is our responsibility to turn that around and we have a great opportunity on Wednesday night. “When the first goal went early (in the first minute) you have to respond and ‘see out’ the next 10 or 15 minutes. “We failed to do that and, credit to Liverpool, I thought they were brilliant and we were not up to scratch. “In the second half we knew we had to improve and I believe that we did that. “So there are some mental positives but we have to put it right on Wednesday.” Defender Martin Skrtel scored from two set-pieces before Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge put the game out of sight well before half-time. Sterling added a second just after the break before Mikel Arteta scored a consolation for Arsenal after Steven Gerrard brought down Oxlade-Chamberlain in the penalty area. Gunners boss Wenger admits his side have put themselves under pressure with the performance as their title credentials are now being doubted. “It raises questions that we have to answer on Wednesday night,” said the Frenchman. “But it is not what people say it is how we respond what matters. “People of course raise questions but we have only one way to answer that and it is on Wednesday night.” Asked whether they were still title contenders, Wenger added: “Of course, because no matter what happens it will be mathematically possible. “It is always what you make of a defeat which decides your future and we have a lot to answer for and a lot of answers to find. “It was a similar situation after Manchester City (where they lost 6-3 in December). “It was a Saturday 12.45pm kick-off and we similarly conceded early goals. “We have to analyse well what happened and why it happened but we didn’t look sharp physically as well.” After the City defeat, Arsenal went on an eight-match unbeaten run which saw them garner 20 points, and Wenger sees no reason why they cannot repeat the feat. “If we do that in the next few games that will be okay,” he said. “We are very disappointed but we will not lose our confidence and belief that we can still do it.” The Gunners lost top spot in the Barclays Premier League after a 5-1 hammering by fourth-placed Liverpool, who blitzed their visitors with four unanswered goals in the opening 20 minutes. Arsene Wenger’s side have slipped to second, a point behind Chelsea, but host Manchester United on Wednesday looking to recover both lost ground and pride. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is grateful for an early opportunity to put right Arsenal’s failings at Anfield.last_img read more

Alan Pardew warns Wilfried Zaha over diving but tips him for England

first_img Press Association Alan Pardew has warned Wilfried Zaha about his dive against Newcastle but believes the winger is capable of earning an England recall before the season’s end. “At Leicester he should have had a penalty, it was a foul, but on Saturday it was a dive and he’s paid the price,” Pardew said. “He can’t play this week and now his place is in jeopardy because if someone comes in and does a great job then he might not get back in the side. “He’ll learn that lesson. He’s not somebody that’s renowned for diving, and it is something I personally discourage, I really don’t like it in the game. He’s had my feelings on it. I’ve been very, very pleased with him, it’s just a tiny aspect of his game he needs to correct. “(Zaha’s) one of the few wide players who can actually go past someone from a standing start. In the England side, you have players who are very, very good with the ball in front of them: Theo Walcott, (Alex Oxlade) Chamberlain, (Ross) Barkley, but Wilf is probably a rare breed in that he is a natural wide player who can beat people, and that might be a nice addition for the squad if he can keep up this consistency. “Roy (Hodgson) is right to not have him in the squad or in his thinking at this time, but I know he’s keeping a close eye on him. If he can show consistency throughout the season that might be a nice option for Roy to have in the Euros.” The manager also effectively confirmed reports of his interest in non-league winger Randell Williams, 18, who is on trial with Palace from Tower Hamlets, having once been a Tottenham trainee. “It’s very unusual (for us to have a player in from that level),” Pardew said. “He’s done very well, so we’ll see how he goes. I’ll keep you updated on that one. “He’s a left winger, but I’m not going to tell you his name, in case that gets passed onto somebody else.” center_img The yellow card Zaha picked up in Crystal Palace’s 5-1 win will mean he is suspended from Monday’s trip to Everton and Pardew says it could put his first-team place at risk in the short term. But the Palace boss, who has been impressed with Zaha’s improved form so far this season, has tipped him to force his way into Roy Hodgson’s thinking for the first time since earning his second cap in August 2013. last_img read more

Brittney Sykes shows evolved skill set in Syracuse’s 91-32 win against Texas Rio Grande Valley

first_img Related Stories On her feet: After 2 ACL recoveries in 2 years, Brittney Sykes is primed to play for SU Published on January 1, 2016 at 4:09 pm Contact Paul: | @pschweds Brittney Sykes moved into the paint five seconds too late. Hildur Björg Kjartansdóttir already grabbed the offensive rebound with the middle wide open and scored a layup.Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman called to Sykes, signaling that someone should have taken that space away. Sykes bent her arms, looking confused as she spun her head around to see none of her teammates nearby. They were on the edges of the court.But on the Orange’s next possession, Maggie Morrison missed a 3 and Sykes was the one to grab the rebound.“We knew when we were going over (the scouting report) that our opponent, they didn’t really box out,” Sykes said. “… We can box them out and then they can’t jump us. So I knew right off the bat, just go in, go for the ball head first and just have a nose for it.”SU (10-3) won its final nonconference game, 91-32, against Texas Rio Grande Valley (8-7) on Friday afternoon in the Carrier Dome. Sykes, the Orange’s starting shooting guard, finished with eight points and eight rebounds, her third most of the season, in just 19 minutes and completed another well-rounded, but not dominant performance.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter missing all but three games last season due to two torn ACLs, Hillsman said Sykes is playing freer than in the past. Her statistics aren’t as impressive as they were in her freshman or sophomore seasons. She hasn’t played like the potent scorer she used to be. But her performances are more balanced than before.“She used to strictly just drive the ball,” senior guard Brianna Butler said. “Now she can develop and shoot the 3. She can do a pull-up and I think that just adds to her game and makes it harder for a defender to defend her.”Sykes played SU’s second-most minutes against UTRGV. She tied for the second-most rebounds, six of which were offensive, and also added five assists and three steals.Less than a minute into the game, Kjartansdóttir dribbled into the lane after beating Syracuse’s press. But Sykes sprinted from the frontcourt and tracked her down. She snuck behind her, poking the ball up and toward Alexis Peterson, who caught it and pushed the opposite way.Seventy seconds later, Sykes grabbed a defensive rebound off a deep missed 2-pointer by Rickell Preston. No Vaqueros players even moved toward the basket when the shot went up, but Sykes still snagged it over Peterson, forward Isabella Slim and center Briana Day.“I think she understands she doesn’t need to score 20-25 points for us to win the basketball game or to have a good game herself,” Hillsman said, “and she’s done a very good job for us across the board.”Texas Rio Grande Valley called a timeout 3:36 into the game trailing 14-0. Sykes recorded a steal two seconds after play resumed. She went coast-to-coast, drawing a foul and hitting both her foul shots. On the Vaqueros’ next possession, Sykes forced another turnover and finished a layup.Like her old self, she was able to get into the paint. But to be successful, she doesn’t have to.Sykes worked “like crazy” on her jump shot while recovering, according to Hillsman. She went 2-for-6 from the field against the Vaqueros, but her shots were sprinkled across the court.“(Hillsman) gives me the ability if I want to take it to the midrange, I can take it,” Sykes said. “I don’t have to drive to the basket all the time and save my body, save my knees from the body-to-body contact.”On a team that often plays four guards at once, Sykes doesn’t need to be the one to drive and kick. Her shooting percentage is just 31.8, but she’s taking more lower-percentage shots. Not only does it take advantage of her improved jump shot, but she can avoid unnecessary contact.“I think she understands the game more,” Hillsman said.Sykes’ game is evolving and for one last time in nonconference play, it continued on Friday.

Seniors hope to leave mark in final 2 home games

first_imgRedshirt junior forward Paige Adams has started all 14 games for the Badgers this season. She also leads the team in points (14) and co-leads the team in goals (5) with five games remaining.[/media-credit]With five games left in the regular season, the University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team is looking to finish the season strong, a campaign starting this weekend in its final two home games.In a match that will honor the team’s seniors, Wisconsin (8-5-1, 1-4-1 Big Ten) will take on Northwestern (4-8-2, 0-6-0) Friday night at the McClimon Complex, where the Badgers are 5-2 on the season.Despite losing its last two games at home, UW has been tough to beat in Madison.With the added emotional advantage of Senior Night Friday, senior defender and team captain Lindsey Johnson thinks her team will step up its play for their home crowd and the seniors.“[The game] is obviously going to be kind of emotional in the beginning of the game because we are all going to get recognized for being here for so long,” Johnson said. “We just have to treat it like any other game and try to win it for us seniors.”Wisconsin’s defense has been struggling of late, allowing nine goals in the last five games, but was able to pitch a 2-0 shutout at UW-Green Bay Monday.Johnson says her defensive squad needs to stay focused and minimize mistakes to continue to improve defensively.“We just have to focus on the details,” Johnson said. “We aren’t going to make any dumb mistakes. We are going to try to keep the ball and not try to force it to places. I think that will avoid a goal.”And the Northwestern offense might be just what Wisconsin’s defense needs to get back on track.NU’s offense has been shutout in four straight games and has scored more than one goal in a contest only once this season.Junior forward Kate Allen poses the largest offensive threat for the Wildcats, scoring a team-high eight goals along with three assists in 2012.The Wildcats, who are on a five-game losing streak, are coming to Madison looking for their first conference win.Head coach Paula Wilkins knows the game against Northwestern is important for her team and expects a tough test.“It’s an important game for us in the Big Ten,” Wilkins said. “They have a dangerous player with Kate Allen up front. Every game they’ve played in the Big Ten they’ve been close and they haven’t given up many goals, so I think it’s going to be a challenging game.”The Wildcats’ defense has made life difficult for opposing offenses, allowing no more than two goals in each of its last five games. Northwestern will attempt to slow down a Wisconsin offense that has been productive as of late, scoring two goals in three of its last four games.Redshirt junior forward Paige Adams, who is tied for the team lead in goals with five, wants to see the offensive squad limit Northwestern’s transition scoring chances.“I think the biggest thing right now is to keep the backs from being able to serve the ball,” Adams said. “When they get counterattacks, that’s when we struggle. As long as we’re keeping them from playing it forward, we’ll be able to win the ball more and get forward and score more goals.”The Badgers tied the Wildcats 1-1 last season and are 2-2-1 against Northwestern during Wilkins’ tenure.Wisconsin cap off weekend against Illinois On Sunday Wisconsin will play its final home game of the 2012 season against Illinois (7-4-2, 4-1-1).The Fighting Illini are ranked third in the Big Ten and have lost only one of their last five games.Junior midfielder Vanessa DiBernardo is the leading scorer for Illinois with four goals in an offense that has scored only 15 times on the season, compared to Wisconsin’s 27 goals.The Illini defense has only allowed 15 goals on the season, led by senior goalkeeper Steph Panozzo who has a save percentage of .773 this season.Wilkins knows Illinois will put up a tough fight for Wisconsin Sunday.“They are a good, dynamic attacking team,” Wilkins said. “Their shape is fantastic. We are going to have to be really organized in what we are trying to do. They have a special player with Vanessa in the midfield. So we are going to have to make sure that we defend together as a group.“I think we are going to have to do well in our transition again. I think in both games, both teams kind of pose the same problems for us, so we are going to have to be focused in both of them.”Follow Spencer on Twitterlast_img read more
