Preview: Western Sydney Wanderers v Brisbane Roar (semi finals)

after regular season Wester Sydney Wanderers was first (57pts), Brisbane Roar finished 5th (35pts)

hosts won all tree h2h games and they have tre important players back, roar has two players fit (which was doubtful)..

The Game:
Despite being up-and-down for most of the season, Brisbane aren’t about to give their title up without a fight and are just one game away from a third straight decider. Mike Mulvey has got his side firing at the right time, with last Sunday’s 2-1 win over Adelaide their third in a row. But if the Roar are to play for another championship they will need to knock off the in-form premiers.

Western Sydney are on a remarkable 12-game unbeaten run, have had the benefit of a week’s break and will play in front of their hostile and parochial home fans.

The busiest men at both clubs this week have been the medical staff with a host of key players from the respective sides racing the clock to be fit. Shinji Ono (groin), Aaron Mooy (knee) and Jerome Polenz (calf) all missed the title-winning clash with Newcastle a fortnight ago but are expected to line-up on Friday night.

Brisbane defender Jack Hingert is out for the season with an ankle injury picked up against Adelaide but skipper Thomas Broich (Achilles) and midfielder Luke Brattan (calf) are likely to play despite failing to finish the match against the Reds.

The big issue:
Wanderers – They took out the Premiers’ Plate in their debut season but there will be no second chances for Tony Popovic’s side from now on. This is sudden death football. While Brisbane have been there and done it over the last couple of years, for many of the Wanderers squad this will be a new experience. Just how they handle the pressure could determine if they move through to the decider.

Roar – Brisbane may have some momentum heading into this clash but the short turnaround and injury clouds over a couple of key players could prove pivotal. While the Wanderers will be fresh from a week off and had the opportunity to get a few of their stars over niggling injuries, the Roar head into this one just five days after a bruising win over Adelaide and that could take its toll late in this encounter.

Volyn Lutsk – Mariupol  ah 0 Mariupol 

In “Volyn” ongoing personnel problems. Anatoly Demyanenko can not count on suspended Vanc Sikov (df 19/0), Petar Zanyeva (df 19/0) and Valentin Iliev (df 18/0), several players are in hospital or just starting to recover from injuries.

fa cup

Bournemouth v Wigan

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is likely to make changes.

Republic of Ireland midfielder James McCarthy is omitted.

Martinez played a second-string in the first tie but he may be tempted to give on-loan Manchester United striker Angelo Henriquez his first start.

Centre-back Ivan Ramis is expected to be out long-term with knee ligament damage and although Antolin Alcaraz is due back from a groin problem he is unlikely to be risked.

Provisional squad: Pollitt, Stam, Boyce, Figueroa, Golobart, Jones, Gomez, Fyvie, Redmond, Boselli, McManaman, Dicko, McArthur, Henriquez, Campabadal, Kiernan, Al Habsi, Espinoza.

Stoke v Crystal Palace

Stoke boss Tony Pulis is expected to make a number of adjustments to his first XI.

Goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen, a regular for the Potters in cup competition, looks set to come in for Asmir Begovic once again, while striker Michael Owen will be hoping to be back involved after starting the original tie – a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park – but then missing out on a place in the squad for Saturday’s 4-0 Barclays Premier League loss to Chelsea.

Defender Marc Wilson and midfielder Rory Delap, who have been sidelined by a broken leg and a calf problem respectively, remain unavailable.

Provisional squad: Begovic, Shotton, Shawcross, Cameron, Huth, Upson, Wilkinson, Whelan, Nzonzi, Walters, Kightly, Etherington, Jones, Sorensen, Whitehead, Crouch, Jerome, Adam, Palacios, Owen, Nash.

Sunderland v Bolton

Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill is unlikely to make too many changes.

Defenders Danny Rose and Carlos Cuellar will both miss out again after injuries ruled then out of the 3-0 win over West Ham on Saturday.

The pair suffered hamstring problems during the 2-2 draw at Wanderers earlier this month.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, O’Shea, Kilgallon, Bramble, Gardner, Colback, McClean, Larsson, Johnson, Vaughan, Sessegnon, Fletcher, Saha, Campbell, Wickham, McFadden.

Blackpool v Fulham

Fulham manager Martin Jol is expected to rest striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Jol has hinted he will rest several first-team players for the clash at Bloomfield Road given that it comes just three days after the Cottagers’ 1-1 draw against Wigan.

Mahamadou Diarra (knee) and Kerim Frei (pelvis) are likely to miss out while Steven Sidwell is a doubt with a hamstring injury.

Provisional squad: Schwarzer, Stockdale, Somogyi, Etheridge, Riether, Hangeland, Hughes, Senderos, Riise, Briggs, Dejagah, Baird, Sidwell, Karagounis, Kacaniklic, Duff, Richardson, Kasami, Ruiz, Rodallega, Berbatov, Petric, Davies.

West Brom v QPR

West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie and right-back Steven Reid will return from injury.

Odemwingie – a target for QPR – has recovered from a calf problem while Reid is available after a shin complaint.

Midfielder Claudio Yacob (hamstring) and strikers Shane Long (dead leg) and Marc-Antoine Fortune (hamstring) are only expected to be fit for the weekend Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

Provisional squad: Foster, Myhill, Daniels, Jones, Reid, Olsson, McAuley, Tamas, Dawson, Popov, Ridgewell, Dorrans, Thorne, Brunt, Morrison, Thomas, Odemwingie, Lukaku, Rosenberg, El Ghanassy,

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has no fresh injury concerns ahead.

Redknapp could make a number of changes after his side’s hard-fought 0-0 draw with Tottenhamon Saturday, but is still without Junior Hoilett (hamstring) and Samba Diakite, who is at the African Nations Cup.

Defender Ryan Nelsen remains available but forwards Andrew Johnson (knee) and Bobby Zamora (hip) are both absent.

Provisional squad: Green, Cesar, Murphy, Cerny, Onuoha, Hill, Nelsen, Ben-Haim, Ferdinand, Mbia, Park, Fabio, Derry, Granero, Taarabt, Faurlin, Wright-Phillips, Ephraim, Mackie, Cisse, Campbell.

Friendly, Cliftonville – Celtic XI 1 @ 2,2 bet365

All main Celtic players are with first squad incude for more important game for them, home game with Internacionale Fc. They are writing just abvouth that game, there was little text for this one (you will read it down). This team is full of youngsters and i expect home win. Cliftonville is Northern Irish club, not so strong but statr preare early for season because of Europe. They played in Europa league, won first game at home Kamlar from Sweden but than eliminated.

CELTIC face a pre-season warm-up in Belfast on July 28 – with a Celtic XI taking on Cliftonville in a specially-arranged friendly.
Stevie Frail will take a squad of talented young players over for the match in Belfast, fielding many of the young stars who featured in the Development Squad last term and some who are looking to make the step-up from the Under-19s this season.
It promises to be an exciting and testing encounter with one of Ireland’s oldest football clubs, who boast a former Celt in their ranks in striker, Diarmuid O’Carroll.
And, as he looked forward to the match, Celtic coach Stevie Frail explained that his young players will be well-prepared for a ‘competitive’ outing.
“This is a great opportunity and will be a key part of our pre-season preparations,” Frail told the official website.
“We never take teams lightly, we don’t do ‘friendlies’ and the boys will be there to play at a level we are happy with and produce the standard of performance we expect from them.
“Any time we go to Ireland we get tough games and we also get the chance to see the Celtic support there.
“That’s always a privilege and a surprise for some of them, although a few of the boys have played over there now and have an idea of what to expect. Hopefully there will be a good turn-out for what should be a good game.”
