Two Bad Sessions Have Cost Us . . . But We Could Have Won Four Games, Insists Glamorgan's Matthew Maynard

Matthew Maynard insists Glamorgan are still reaping the rewards of a positive approach to their County Championship campaign despite their latest defeat. The Welsh county lost by 58 runs to Durham in a match they looked well placed to win at the start of the final day.

To Kieffer Or Not To Kieffer . . . A Few Moore Sleepless Nights Ahead For Wales Boss Rob Page

It’s coming. D-day for Wales in their bid to make the World Cup finals. But few things are certain about this fixture, including the eventual full starting team that manager Robert Page will plump for. Daniel Parker reckons nine are nailed on, but two more will keep us guessing . . . and arguing. Sunday 5th June – it’s getting a bit close for comfort now, isn’t it? We’re less than three weeks away from Wales men’s golden opportunity to end 64 years of hurt by qualifying for a World Cup, and there remain a host of Rusmfeldian “known unknowns” in play.

Steve Cooper Aims For Third Time Lucky After Double Play-Off Heartbreak With Swansea City

Steve Cooper insists he and his Nottingham Forest side will not be burdened by the weight of history as they prepare to face Sheffield United in the first leg of their Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final at Bramall Lane on Saturday. The Welshman will lead a club that has not featured in the Premier League this century, an absence keenly felt in a city steeped in the traditions of Brian Clough and his all-conquering sides that swept to back-to-back European Cup wins in 1979 and 1980. Expectations have been raised again by the club’s extraordinary rise since former Swansea City boss Cooper’s arrival at the City Ground in September, but the Pontypridd native is adamant that history must only be seen as a positive as they look to take the first steps towards a return to the game’s elite.

Patrick Swan's Song . . . I'll Keep Coming Back To Wales For Another Shot At Glory
