Late Carey double pegs back Habour View in MoBay relegation scrap

By Sports Desk February 10, 2019

A last-gasp strike from Donovan Carey saw hosts Montego Bay United wrest a share of the points from Harbour View as late drama unfolded in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) at Montego Bay Stadium on Sunday. 

In the match-up, billed as a relegation six-pointer between the struggling team, goals from Nicholas Beckett (8th), Tevin Scott (63) and Mark Alves (67) seemed to have the team headed to a massive away win.

With less than 15 minutes remaining, however, Carey flipped that script pulling the team to within one goal in the 81st minute, before levelling things up in time added on.  Earlier, Dino Williams had got the home team on the board after responding to Beckett’s goal in the 25th minute.  The result did little to soothe the relegation fears of either squad with MoBay remaining rooted to the bottom of the table on 20 and Harbour View adding another to move to 26, in 9th place.

Elsewhere, however, the other teams mired in the relegation struggle Dunbeholden and Reno failed to capitalize.  Dunbeholden suffered a 2-1 loss at the hand of visiting Mount Pleasant after quick goals four-minutes apart from and Evan Taylor (11) and Daniel Green (16) left the home team stunned.  Narado Brown struck for Dunbeholden five minutes later but it would prove to be a mere consolation.

Reno seemed to be heading in the right direction, after recovering from an early Courtney Allen (12) strike to take the lead through goals from Ramone Plummer (26) and Javier Brown (35).  The team was, however, forced to settle for a share of the points after Ryan Miller leveled things in the 43rd minute.

At the other end of the table, Javon East’s early goal kept Portmore at the top of the standings following a 1-0 win over third place Cavalier.

  • City out to make history against Chelsea - Silva City out to make history against Chelsea - Silva

    Bernardo Silva believes Manchester City will take a significant stride towards becoming serial winners if they overcome Chelsea in the EFL Cup final on Sunday.

    City won the trophy last season after beating Arsenal 3-0 in the final, as well as getting their hands on a third Premier League title.

    The club are yet to retain a trophy in their history – something Silva wants to see corrected against Maurizio Sarri's side at Wembley.

    "It would mean a lot for the history of the club," he said.

    "That is one of our main goals: not only winning it once but keep winning and winning.

    "We know we have the squad to do that but our opponents are very strong and it won't be an easy job."

    City thumped Chelsea in the Premier League 6-0 less than a fortnight ago, but Silva insists it will be a far tougher game this time around.

    "We should forget that match because it won't happen again," he added.

    "We are not expecting the same result. We are playing against one of the best sides in the world, even though lately their results are not the best for them.

    "Against those kind of players you can never relax and if you give them time to think, time to play and time to decide [what to do], they will destroy you. So, we have to play with the same intensity."

  • FA charge Millwall over racist chanting FA charge Millwall over racist chanting

    Millwall have been charged with failing to control spectactors by the Football Association after instances of alleged racist chanting during their FA Cup victory against Everton.

    Footage posted on social media appeared to show a section of the club's supporters taunting away fans by using a derogatory term about the Pakistani community.

    The FA launched an investigation into the incident and confirmed on Thursday the Championship side have now been charged.

    "Millwall FC has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20," said an FA statement.

    "It is alleged the club failed to ensure its spectators conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from using abusive and/or insulting words, which included a reference to race and/or ethnic origin, during the FA Cup tie against Everton on January 26."

    Following the game, which Millwall won 3-2 to stay on course for a quarter-final at home to Brighton and Hove Albion, the club condemned the alleged racist abuse as "abhorrent".

    "Millwall Football Club is aware of, and extremely disappointed by, a video circulating online displaying alleged racist chanting during Saturday's victory over Everton," a Millwall statement read.

    "The club will, as is commonplace following such incidents, work with all relevant authorities during investigations into the matter and look to identify individuals involved. Anyone identified and guilty of such abuse will be banned from The Den for life."

    Before the match, Everton fan Jay Burns was attacked and suffered a facial gash that required 25 stitches.

    Police arrested and bailed a 27-year-old man on suspicion of wounding with intent, attempted grievous bodily harm and violent disorder.

  • Klopp impressed by Solskjaer's 'brilliant job' at United Klopp impressed by Solskjaer's 'brilliant job' at United

    Jurgen Klopp believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a "brilliant job" at Manchester United and has shown that he is cut out for a top management job.

    Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford in December, with the former United favourite taking the reins on an interim basis until the end of the season.

    And the Norwegian's return to Manchester has prompted a huge upturn in the club's fortunes, as United have lost just once - against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League - during his short reign.

    He will face a stern test against Liverpool on Sunday but has the backing of his opposite number, who recognises the progress made under Solskjaer.

    "We are not magicians. It's not like we can come in and say: 'You are good but I can make you really good'," Klopp told Sky Sports. "We are blessed with really good players around us.

    "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a brilliant job. It's all about bringing out the potential, bringing out the team's quality. That's what he's obviously done and it makes him the manager of a top club.

    "That's how it is, but I'm not surprised.

    "I didn't know him - I met him one time last year and we had a little chat - I obviously only knew him as a player. But what he's done so far has been brilliant."
