Fletcher setback for Sunderland

first_img The 27-year-old Scotland international, who has missed the last four games, will sit out against Everton on Saturday and is likely to play no further part in the club’s fight for Barclays Premier League survival. Manager Gus Poyet is otherwise remaining coy over a series of minor knocks, but goalkeeper Keiren Westwood is still sidelined by a shoulder problem. Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher is unlikely to play again this season because of his ankle injury. The 32-year-old had to have five stitches in an eye wound early in last weekend’s victory over Arsenal. Defender Phil Jagielka (hamstring) could be fit to return for next weekend’s visit of Manchester United. Boss Roberto Martinez believes fighting for a place in the top four is no different from a relegation battle as the requirements are essentially identical. “I think it is exactly the same, if I am completely honest,” he said. “It is being able to focus on the game itself, understanding the intensity and the focus you need in every action. “In every season, whatever you are playing for, it comes down to the final points you are playing for: whether it is for staying in the league, making the top four or winning the title it is exactly the same. “Looking back at other seasons with Wigan, we managed to get seven wins out of the last nine and that is the same intensity you need to have in any aim you are fighting for.” Press Association Poyet has told his players to be brave as they attempt to escape the drop. The Black Cats slumped to the foot of the table after a disastrous few days last weekend which saw Fulham, West Brom and Crystal Palace all win before they were thrashed 5-1 at Tottenham on Monday evening. Poyet’s men are now seven points adrift of safety and knowing their two games in hand will count for little if they do not manufacture a significant improvement in form. The 46-year-old Uruguayan admitted after the debacle at White Hart Lane that his side would need a miracle to stay up, and had called upon his players to stand up and be counted in the club’s hour of need. Poyet said: “We try, we try to be brave. We have played games away from home against top teams and we have left one up front and we did okay; against Liverpool, we left two all the time and we did better; and against Spurs, we left two and we were terrible. “That shows you that it doesn’t matter too much sometimes, all the plans and all the things because it depends what happens on the pitch in 90 minutes, how we cope with situations, how we pass the ball, how we defend. “But maybe that word, being ‘brave’ is one of the biggest ones in this situation.” Midfielder Leon Osman is Everton’s only doubt. last_img read more

Football: Return of Cephus brings vitality to Badger air attack

first_imgBefore the 2019 season began, Badger fans knew little of what they could expect from newly reinstated junior wide receiver Quintez Cephus.Without a doubt, he blew us all away.So far this season, Cephus brought the heat to every game. Totaling three catches for 39 receiving yards in the season opener against the University of South Florida, Cephus showed his intention to demonstrate what we’ve all been waiting for. His first performance served as only a preview of what was to come.The Badgers then took down Central Michigan in a remarkable 61–0 victory, while Cephus totaled a whopping six catches for 130 receiving yards as well as two touchdowns.Football: Badgers continue dominance through two gamesAs a unit, the 2018 Badgers came into their season ranked No. 4 in the nation. A clear preseason playoff Read…“He’s even better than the Quintez he was before,” Jonathan Taylor told the Wisconsin State Journal. “That just shows the type of work ethic he has. The entire time, he was working. He came in and didn’t miss a beat at all.”Since 2016, the Badgers anxiously awaited the return of this star. Cephus’ return is especially crucial during a time in which Jack Coan is continuing to surprise.Due to an injury, Cephus missed most of the 2017 season. He then struggled with legal issues carrying into the 2018 season, but was officially cleared and reinstated as a student and player starting this fall.Starting quarterback Coan continues to show consistency with Cephus, as well as other receivers such as Jake Ferguson, Kendric Pryor and Aron Cruickshank.Coan also spoke of Cephus to WSJ.“It’s just amazing how un-rusty he is, if that makes sense,” Coan said. “You’d think a person that sat out that long wouldn’t be as good right away coming back, but I feel like he hasn’t missed a beat. It’s been awesome to have him.”The two served the Badgers as a dynamic duo throughout the season thus far, and Cephus is currently leading the team with 13 targets.Cephus spoke about his return with WSJ.“It’s great” Cephus said. “We all know that we have a chance to get the ball when we’re in. It gives us the challenge of getting open and winning fast. It’s definitely helping our receiving group, the way Jack is playing.”Not only are Badger fans impressed with Cephus’ performance this season, but head coach Paul Chryst is inspired by what the star receiver has already done for the team thus far.Football: Four takeaways after Wisconsin continues to impress both offensively and defensivelyThe No. 14 University of Wisconsin football team (2-0) followed up their impressive season opener with an arguably more impressive Read…“He certainly gives us a great energy.” Chryst said. “He missed a year playing with a group that he loves and in a game that he loves. When you get it back — there is a spirit about him that we would all be crazy not to see and appreciate and learn from.”The No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers are set to face off against the No. 11 Michigan Wolverines at Camp Randall on Saturday morning. After two blowouts, it’s safe to say the Badgers are well equipped to take on a hefty Michigan defense.Football: Five takeaways from week one of Badger FootballThe Wisconsin Badgers started their season Friday night with a statement 49–0 victory against South Florida. In peak Floridian conditions, Read…Facing the Wolverines will inevitably be an uphill battle for this strong Wisconsin offense. However, after almost giving up a win to unranked Army, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has more to worry about when facing the aggressive Badgers at home.Wide receivers, especially Cephus, will inevitably be put to the test. Already totaling over 16 yards per catch this season, pressure lies on the shoulders of Cephus to perform after proving himself to be a top target for the Badgers. Along with other top receivers Danny Davis, Ferguson, Pryor and A.J. Taylor, Cephus will have to have a good showing if the Badgers are to triumph.The Badgers are not only hoping to extend their winning streak — they’re expected to take down one of their biggest match-ups of the season. They need all of their hottest receivers, especially Cephus, to really prove themselves as a top team in the league.last_img read more
