first_imgKampala, Uganda | PL | All eyes will be on King Power Stadium as Man Utd and Leicester go head-to-head, while Chelsea seek one more pointThe race for a top-four finish is going down to the final day, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester City vying for the two remaining places in next season’s UEFA Champions League.All three teams lie within a single point and a decisive duel is in store as Leicester host Man Utd.Chelsea also have a tough test as they play sixth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers, who must hold on to that position to guarantee UEFA Europa League qualification.A draw for Man Utd at King Power Stadium would ensure they finish above their hosts Leicester and secure a top-four spot.They can take confidence from the fact they are unbeaten in 10 Premier League matches against the Foxes.Leicester must beat their visitors to leapfrog them. However, a draw would still secure a top-four finish if Chelsea lose, because Brendan Rodgers’ team have a better goal difference than Frank Lampard’s men.Leicester cannot afford a defeat but rarely lose their final league match of the season. They have earned at least a point in 11 of their last 12 Matchweek 38 fixtures.History bodes well for BluesChelsea need a draw against Wolves to be sure of a top-four finish but could get away with a defeat. If they lost at Stamford Bridge, they would require Man Utd to beat Leicester.Encouragingly for Lampard, Chelsea are unbeaten in all their five Premier League home matches against Wolves. And, when finishing their season at Stamford Bridge, they haven’t lost since 2001/02.Tammy Abraham could be a key figure for Chelsea, having scored in all three of his league matches against Wolves, netting six goals in total, including a hat-trick in this season’s reverse fixture, won by the Blues 5-2.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgAudley Harrison has announced his retirement in the wake of his first-round defeat at the hands of American prospect Deontay Wilder.Harlesden’s former Olympic champion was much criticised as a professional, although he did win the European heavyweight title and was twice winner of the popular Prizefighter tournament.Harrison, 41, continued his career despite a dismal showing in a world title challenge against David Haye in November 2010 and a crushing first-round defeat against David Price last year.But Saturday’s loss to Wilder in Sheffield prompted him to call time on a career in which he won 31 of his 38 pro fights.Harrison said: “There are only so many times you can fall before it becomes foolhardy to continue.“I’ve fallen a lot, but winning the heavyweight title was a destination I really wanted to get to. Coming back from adversity has been synonymous with my life.“I’ve done well to turn my life around, but sadly my dream to be a legitimate world champion will be unrealised.“I believed if I was mentally and physically right, I could figure these young guns out. Saturday was my final chance to prove it.“The thing that pulled me up was pride, so I wanted a chance to continue and go out on my shield. It was not to be.”See also:Trio to feature on Wembley Arena 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_img23 February 2005South Africa will soon have a brand new high-capacity port. Developers say Ngqura, a multi-user deepwater port on the Coega River, and part of the multi-billion rand Coega industrial development zone (IDZ), is rapidly taking shape.The government is spending about US$400-million on the port – and other improvements in and adjacent to the Coega IDZ.Construction on the port is already far advanced, and the facility is expected to be ready for commercial traffic by the end of 2005. It will have a capacity for accommodating bigger container vessels than any of South Africa’s seven other commercial ports.The filling up of the Ngqura harbour basin was completed in July 2004, which means that 5.75-million cubic metres of water have now replaced the 14-million cubic metres of beach sand that were removed.With the depth of the channel and the protected position in Algoa Bay, the port is in one of the best spots for a harbour along the South African coast.A channel carved by an ancient glacier allowed the development of the port to up to 23 metres. Protected from south-westerly winds by a finger of land, the port’s bay has 330 anchor days per year.Coega’s cutter suction dredger finished cutting an approach channel into the basin in December, meaning that the water in the basin now rises and falls in time with the tide.“With the quay walls complete, the successful filling of the harbour basin in July last year, the dredging finished, and the steady progress of the breakwaters, our main focus at the moment is the positioning of the concrete structures [caissons]”, said National Ports Authority resident engineer Chris Matchett.Matchett said the caissons were towed into position using tugboats and positioned by a system of anchors and winches before being flooded and sunk on prepared stone foundation beds.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

first_imgThe Shiromani Akali Dal on Wednesday said the commutation of death sentence of Balwant Singh Rajoana to life term was part of a process aimed at bringing to closure the festering wounds of the Sikh community and termed efforts to stall this humanitarian gesture “unfortunate”.Former Minister and Akali leader Maheshinder Singh Grewal said it was unfortunate than an attempt was being made by certain Congress leaders to recreate tension by opposing the move in the court of law. “The SAD is against such attempts aimed at striking at the core of peace and communal harmony and will provide all needed legal aid to the family of Rajoana to fight these insidious designs to reverse the humane relief granted to him,” said Mr. Grewal.‘Release Sikh prisoners’He said the Union government should release all other Sikh prisoners who are still languishing in jail after serving their full sentences. “The Punjab government should do likewise for prisoners languishing in State jails,” he said.Mr. Grewal said the Akali Dal and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) have always opposed the death penalty as a matter of principle and continue to do so.“We have waged a long struggle to create consensus on this issue and this included approaching the Union government and the President on several occasions under the leadership of Parkash Singh Badal,” he said.The decision to release eight Sikh prisoners who had already completed their sentence and the commutation of Rajoana’s death sentence were the fallout of the concerted efforts of the Akali Dal and the SGPC, Mr. Grewal claimed.He said the Congress leader opposing the commutation of the death penalty was part of the Vidhan Sabha when the House moved a resolution appealing to the Centre in this regard.The statement came a day after Gurkirat Singh Kotli, a Punjab MLA and grandson of slain former Chief Minister Beant Singh, said his family would move the Supreme Court against the Centre’s decision to commute the death sentence of Rajoana.Ludhiana MP Ravneet Singh Bittu, who too is a grandson of the slain leader, also criticised the Centre’s decision. “How is a terrorist of Kashmir different from a terrorist of Punjab? How can Rajoana who hasn’t applied for pardon himself, doesn’t believe in the law of land and wants to spread terror repeatedly be released by Modi Govt? Dual Face of Modi,” Mr. Bittu had tweeted.
