Tesni Evans fended off a fightback from Hollie Naughton to reach the third round of the El Gouna International in Egypt. The 26-year-old took the first two games 11-9, 11-8 and looked set for a comfortable victory against the unseeded Canadian.
Leandro Bacuna insists Cardiff City have what Aston Villa lacked three years ago – the unity to stay in the Premier League. The Bluebirds midfielder – who could replace Aron Gunnarssson against Liverpool today – was part of the Villa squad that crashed out of the top level in 2016.

Bala have not been the competitive outfit that we’ve come to expect in recent campaigns and this season the club are at real risk of missing out on European qualification for the first time in five seasons – a scenario which could make a significant impact on the club’s budget moving forward.
Joel Makin will face No 7 seed Paul Coll after reaching the third round of the El Gouna International in Egypt. The 24-year-old, who had a first round bye, came through his second round tie with local player Mazen Hesham to earn the right to face the New Zealander.
