Blackburn v Peterborough Npower Championship Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Blackburn v Peterborough of Npower Championship HD Quality Live streaming is available here.Blackburn v Peterborough Live Stream online Npower Championship Video Free The match will take plcae at Ewood Park on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.Leon Best might have to wait a little longer for his Blackburn debut as npower Championship basement boys Peterborough prepare to visit Ewood Park.Best scored for Rovers' reserves earlier this week as he continued his rehabilitation from cruciate knee ligament damage sustained during pre-season but, as is common when returning from such injuries, the Republic of Ireland international is suffering from swelling around the joint."If Leon is physically okay and his knee is okay then I'd like to get him involved if I can," said boss Michael Appleton on Blackburn's official website.

Team News:
Blackburn hope to have striker Leon Best available after he scored for the reserves earlier this week, Best is yet to make his debut after suffering from cruciate ligament damage in pre-season.
Fabio Nunes is available after recovering from a hamstring injury.
Peterborough are sweating on the fitness of midfielder Davide Petrucci (hamstring). Jack Payne who replaced him in midweek could come in again.
Striker Tyrone Barnett is available after recovering from a knee injury.

A Jordan Rhodes hat-trick helped Blackburn to a 4-1 win over Peterborough at London Road in November, to give Henning Berg his first win in his short spell as Rovers boss.
But Peterborough lead Blackburn 2-1 in the league head-to-head standings, having won their only previous league visit to Ewood Park, 1-0 in February 1975.
On the only other occasion the two have clashed in the red rose county, Rovers claimed a 5-2 triumph in the fourth round of the League Cup in October 2009.

Blackburn Rovers
Michael Appleton's Blackburn are chasing a first win in five league games, having picked up two points out of 12, but are undefeated in four at home (W2, D2).
The FA Cup quarter-finalists have not scored since knocking out Arsenal, and are hunting a first goal in 336 minutes (five hours and 36 minutes) of Championship football, since Scott Dann's opener in the 1-1 draw at Brighton on 12 February.
Ewood Park has seen fewer Championship goals than any of the other 21 grounds; just 36 (19 for, 17 against).

Peterborough United
Rock-bottom Peterborough on 33 points from 33 games, are four points from safety, having lost twice as many league games as they have won (W10, L20).
Darren Ferguson's side could tumble to three successive league defeats - a run last endured in early December, which would also see them 'doubled' for a fourth time after failing to gain a home or away point against Nottingham Forest, Birmingham and Bristol City.
Posh are also in danger of failing to score in three successive league games for the first time this season.

Barnsley v Bolton Npower Championship Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Barnsley v Bolton of Npower Championship HD Quality Live streaming is available here.Barnsley v Bolton Live Stream online Npower Championship Video Free The match will take plcae at Oakwell Stadium on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.Etuhu is back in full training after missing the last two matches with a broken nose sustained in the recent FA Cup win at MK Dons.Manager David Flitcroft has no new injury or suspension problems, but must decide who will start at left-back in the absence of Scott Golbourne, who is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.Jim McNulty and Scott Wiseman have stepped in for Golbourne in the last two matches.Ryan Tunnicliffe, on loan from Manchester United, is expected to continue in midfield after making his debut last week, while Jacob Mellis and Tomasz Cywka are pushing for recalls.

Team News:
Barnsley midfielder Kelvin Etuhu is set to return to the squad after recovering from the broken nose he suffered in the recent FA Cup win at MK Dons.
Boss David Flitcroft has no new injury concerns but is without left-back Scott Golbourne who is out for the season.
Bolton will be without Mark Davies after the England Under-21 midfielder was ruled out for 10 months with a cruciate ligament injury.
Bpss Dougie Freedman will give late tests to Chris Eagles and Tyrone Mears.

These clubs have met competitively 36 times and there is absolute symmetry between them; Barnsley have won 12, Bolton 12, with 12 draws.
The match at the Reebok in November was also level with Craig Davies scoring in the 65th minute to earn a point for struggling Barnsley, after Kevin Davies had given the home side a first-half lead.
Bolton last visited Oakwell in April 2001 and gained a 1-0 win. They have not lost away to the Tykes for 15 years, since a 1-0 reverse in the third round of the FA Cup in 1998.

Barnsley lie immediately above the drop zone with a two-point cushion, but go into this weekend's fixtures joint top of the Championship's form table of each side's last six games, despite losing the six-pointer against Bristol City 5-3 last Saturday.
David Flitcroft's side are defending a 100% home league record in 2013 of three straight wins, but have scored a divisional low 16 goals in their 16 matches at Oakwell.
Three points would give the Tykes only their third home victory against a top-half club.

Bolton Wanderers
Bolton are unbeaten in five games, and hoping to claim three successive league wins for the first time in 11 months.
But the Trotters are without a victory away from home in this calendar year, and have only mustered victories over Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday all season.
28 of their 34 Championship matches have either been drawn, or decided by a single goal. Only Birmingham match that.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Spain La Liga Preview Mar 2, 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2 March 2013, One of the important match Real Madrid vs Barcelona of  Spain La Liga HD Quality Live Real Madrid vs Barcelona streaming is availahere.Real Madrid vs Barcelona Live Stream online Spain La Liga online Video Free The match will take plcae at Tannadice Park on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things .TEAM NEWS  .Real Madrid have won 10 of their last 11 home matches in La Liga and are unbeaten in their last 24.
 Los Blancos' 3-1 win over Barcelona on Tuesday was their biggest victory at Camp Nou since a 5-1 success in January 1963.
Madrid have netted 101 goals in 42 matches across all competitions this season (2.4 goals per game).

Barcelona have won just three of their last seven matches in all competitions (W3, D2, L2).
The Blaugrana have recorded only one victory in their last seven encounters against Madrid (W1, D3, L3).
 Lionel Messi (pictured, right) has scored in a record 15 successive Liga matches.

El Clasico is back for the second time this week, but unfortunately it is in a watered down form. After playing a cracking match at the Camp Nou in the second leg of their Copa Del Rey semifinal that saw Real Madrid shock Barcelona, the two ides will meet again in a league match with absolutely nothing on the line.
Barcelona is going to win La Liga. Real Madrid will qualify for the Champions League. That's done and dusted so what is there to play for? Pride, sure, especially in a rivalry like this one, but that isn't enough to make this the kind of Clasico we've come to expect.
Just look at Real Madrid for how little this match matters. They are probably going to look past this match and rest their players ahead of the second leg of their Champions League tie with Manchester United next week. Without the best players out there, and with nothing at stake, it is tough to get excited about this Clasico.

One of the biggest matches in world football takes place on Saturday afternoon as Real Madrid welcome Barcelona to the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga.

The visitors will be eager to gain revenge on their rivals after they were knocked out in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey on Tuesday with a 3-1 defeat at the Camp Nou.

Despite that disappointing loss, the Catalan club are running away with the league title as they sit 16 points clear of third-placed Real in the table.

The two teams played out a 2-2 draw in their previous league meeting back in October with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo scoring two goals each.

Iker Casillas remains sidelined for the hosts, while Xabi Alonso may not be risked ahead of Tuesday's Champions League last-16 second leg against Manchester United.

Barcelona have no new injury concerns ahead of the match, but Victor Valdes is expected to return in goal following Jose Pinto's appearance in the Copa del Rey defeat.

Madrid: Lopez; Arbeloa, Ramos, Pepe, Coentrao; Essien, Khedira; Di MarĂ­a, Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo; Higuain

Valdes; Alves, Pique, Puyol, Alba; Busquets, Xavi, Fabregas; Pedro, Iniesta; Messi

The 34-year-old skipper has been out of action for eight weeks because of an ankle injury but is in contention for the runaway leaders of Scotland's Division Three.

Ross Perry has a hamstring injury, while Lewis Macleod, Kevin Kyle and Darren Cole remain on the absent list.

East Stirling travel to Glasgow on the back of three straight victories but will find it difficult to take any points from a side who are 20 points clear at the top of the table thanks to just one defeat all season.

The visitors are without the suspended Steven Jackson as well as Michael Herd who is struggling with a groin strain.Coach John Coughlin told the club's official website: "Saturday is a big game and a big occasion and it is way out of the ordinary for us."Rangers are boosted by the return of Lee McCulloch for the Irn-Bru Third Division game against East Stirling.The skipper has been sidelined since early January with an ankle problem but is back in contention for the clash at Ibrox.

But boss Ally McCoist is without Ross Perry, who suffered a hamstring injury against Berwick last weekend, while Lewis Macleod, Kevin Kyle and Darren Cole remain in the treatment room.The runaway leaders have scored 11 goals in their previous two encounters with the visitors this season.East Stirling will be without suspended full-back Steven Jackson.Nathan Shepherd is expected to return to the side in Jackson's absence while midfielder Philipp Zufle is available after recovering from an ankle problem.But Michael Herd has been ruled out after suffering a groin injury during last weekend's 3-2 win over Elgin while Rhys Devlin is again missing due to a knee problem.

Head coach John Coughlin said: "We are going to Ibrox on the back of our best run of the season so we can enjoy it without having any pressure on us in terms of needing to get a result."I will ask the boys to go out and show that they are decent footballers who can play decent football and see where that takes us."

St Mirren vs Celtic Scottish Cup Preview Mar 2, 2013

 St Mirren will give a late fitness test to winger Gary Teale before the William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final with Celtic.
The 34-year-old has missed the last three games with an abductor problem but will be assessed before the Sky Live showdown on Saturday lunchtime.
Buddies manager Danny Lennon may have to do without skipper Jim Goodwin who is struggling with a knock, but fellow midfielder Kenny McLean could return after a two-month absence with a knee injury.
Celtic will have defender Kelvin Wilson and the versatile Charlie Mulgrew back in the squad for the trip to Paisley.
Centre-half Wilson was ruled out of Wednesday's league defeat at Motherwell because he was suffering a migraine, while Mulgrew has been absent from the last couple of matches with a glute problem.
Skipper Scott Brown (hip) and Mikael Lustig (abductor) are definitely out, but defender Rami Gershon has returned to training again and should after struggling with a knock.

 Saints have a chance to secure yet another trip to Hampden tomorrow when they face Celtic in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup. Celtic needed a replay to see off Arbroath in the fourth round of this season’s competition and then had things rather easier at the start of February when they comfortably saw off Raith Rovers. Neil Lennon’s men are still on for a domestic double – Saints having ended their hopes of a treble in January, while it will take a lot more than Wednesday night’s defeat to Motherwell to have them worrying about their title hopes. There is still the prospect of progress on the European stage too, Celtic having done superbly well to make the last 16 of the Champions League after beating Barcelona in the group stages. They lost the first leg of their encounter with Juventus 3-0, although the refereeing performance frustrated Lennon somewhat, and they will have to produce a remarkable display if they are to pull off a comeback in Turin on Wednesday.
Last month the Celtic boss decided to make a number of changes for a game against Inverness Caley Thistle that came a few days before the first leg against Juve and as his side won that league game he may go down the same route tomorrow. That could see younger players like Dylan McGeouch and Marcus Fraser given a chance to impress, while fringe players such as Paddy McCourt, Lassad and Miku will be out to show they should be playing on a more regular basis. Lennon also used that match to hand debuts to his two January signings, with Aussie midfielder Tom Rogic ending up with the man of the match award and Israeli defender Rami Gershon – borrowed from Standard Liege – scoring.But after being knocked out of one cup by the Buddies this season Lennon may decide to bring out the big guns to ensure it doesn’t happen again and gain a bit of revenge. Gary Hooper took his tally to 23 goals last week, Norwich City having made a number of bids for him during the transfer window, while Kris Commons has also been getting forward and scoring from midfield. Victor Wanyama has been in terrific form in the middle of the park and is another player who has been linked with a move to England, partly because of his fine displays in the Champions League. Skipper Scott Brown has been doing a sterling job despite needing an operation while at the back Efe Ambrose and Charlie Mulgrew have struck up a good partnership. With the likes of Georgios Samaras, Joe Ledley, Adam Matthews and Emilio Izaguirre also available to him, Lennon could opt to rest a fair number of players and still put out an incredibly strong team.

Hearts vs Motherwell Scottish Premier League Preview Mar 2, 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2 March 2013, One of the important match Hearts vs Motherwell of  Scottish Premier League HD Quality Live Hearts vs Motherwell streaming is availahere.Hearts vs Motherwell Live Stream online Scottish Premier Leagueonline Video Free The match will take plcae at Tannadice Park on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things .TEAM NEWS. Hearts midfielder Ryan Stevenson is available for Saturday's Premier League clash with Motherwell after serving a three-match suspension.
Interim boss Gary Locke will check on the fitness of Michael Ngoo, but the on-loan striker is expected to shake off a knock.
Scott Robinson, Danny Grainger, Marius Zaliukas and Callum Paterson are still out of action, while Jamie Hamill is improving his fitness following knee surgery.
Motherwell defenders Tom Hateley and Fraser Kerr will both return to the squad for Saturday's encounter at Tynecastle.
Hateley was ruled out of Wednesday's Premier League win over Celtic, while Kerr has now recovered from illness.
Manager Stuart McCall has worries over an unnamed defender who picked up a knock and could miss the trip to Edinburgh.
Hearts defender Andy Webster insists interim boss Gary Locke will have the backing of the Tynecastle squad if he puts his name forward to replace John McGlynn.
The Jambos first-team coach has been asked to take care of team matters alongside player development manager Darren Murray after McGlynn was relieved of his post.
His first match in charge will be the Gorgie clash with Motherwell but the former club captain was reluctant to speculate on whether he would still be picking the team by the time they run out at Hampden for the Scottish Communities League Cup final against St Mirren on March 17.
But should he decide to apply for the job, centre-back Webster insists he will be able to call upon the first-team members for a glowing reference.
He said: "That's a decision for the board to take but Lockey knows what it means to be at this football club as a player and a coach and the boys will be right behind him."

McGlynn was sacked after winning just eight of the 34 games he presided over as Hearts boss.

But Webster insists some of the flak that has gone the former manager's way is down to the players and their sub-standard displays.
He said: "Under the circumstances, of course it's been a difficult few days. It's never a nice situation to be in.
"In terms of results, we are where we are in the league but whether you are a player or a manager, results determine what's going to happen. For us to be in the situation we are is not acceptable.
"Do the players take a certain amount of responsibility for that? Yeah, and not just for the recent weeks, but from the start of the season.

Manager Kenny Jackett must decide whether to recall Lowry to the fold immediately or to stick with the same defensive back-line that helped the Lions to victory over Middlesbrough last weekend.
Winger Taylor is another welcome addition to the squad after a knee injury and he completed 70 minutes for the U21s against QPR last Friday to build up his fitness.
Midfielder George Saville could make his debut after sealing a loan move from Chelsea earlier this week and is expected to be named amongst the substitutes.
Midfielder Josh Wright should retain his place in the starting eleven after a composed performance at the Riverside Stadium, while Andy Keogh and Adam Smith will both be pushing for recalls.
The Lions are without striker Rob Hulse, who continues to struggle with a stomach injury, and his absence should mean that Benik Afobe and John Marquis continue their partnership up front.
Leeds look set to name an unchanged starting XI for the third consecutive game as they prepare to welcome the Lions to Yorkshire.

Manager Neil Warnock is boosted by the return of midfielder Rudolph Austin (knock), who should return to the match-day squad having missed the Whites' last two fixtures.
Otherwise Leeds have no fresh injury problems, with defenders Leigh Bromby and Adam Drury the only notable absentees.
Former Lions forward Steve Morison is expected to make his first appearance against Millwall since leaving the club for Norwich City in 2011.

Wigan v Liverpool Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Wigan v Liverpool of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live streaming is available here.Wigan v Liverpool Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at DW Stadium on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.This is a meeting between two 'box of chocolates' teams. Yes, you never quite know what you're going to get (© Forrest Gump).It's ever been thus in the Premier League with Wigan, whose habitual inconsistency sees them in the bottom five after 27 games for the fourth season in a row. To continue with the lame (and predictable!) film analogies, this of course means that the Latics are once again preparing for their annual 'Great Escape' from relegation. Last week's win at fellow strugglers Reading was huge, and took Wigan to a healthy four points better off than they were this time a year ago.With his two goals, it also underlined how important Arouna Kone has been to them this season - and will be in the weeks ahead. Having scored 10 goals by the end of February, Kone's set for the best return by a Wigan player since my mate Jason Roberts bagged 14 in 2005-06! Only Amr Zaki* has scored more than 10 in the six full seasons since then.As for Liverpool? Well, they're undoubtedly going the right way under Brendan Rodgers but need to prove in their remaining games that this will be the last 'transition' season. When you see them play with the style they showed against Swansea two weeks ago, and then with such spirit against FC Zenit, it's apparent that the work to make the club challenge at the top again is progressing. Where Liverpool have been consistent this season is in dealing with the lesser lights of the Premier League. A record of W9 D2 L1 against bottom-half teams is bettered only by Manchester United, and includes a 3-0 beating of Wigan in November when Luis Suarez dominated.Wigan haven't won at home for seven games. Liverpool are five winless away. A draw might be your best bet - but you'd be brave to confidently predict anything with these two.The unpredictable Zaki has just left Egyptian side ENPPI just 12 days after re-joining his old club on a two-and-a-half year deal. He's only 29 - any takers?  

Team News:

Wigan defender Antolin Alcaraz could start after returning from a six-month lay-off with a groin injury as a substitute at Reading last weekend.
Winger Ryo Miyaichi is close to returning after three months out with an ankle problem.
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has aggravated a thigh injury and is a doubt for the match.
Martin Skrtel is fit again after a knee injury, leaving Fabio Borini and Martin Kelly as the only absentees.

Wigan are unbeaten in their last four home matches against Liverpool, registering three draws and a 1-0 win in March 2010.
Liverpool's only other defeat in 17 league and cup matches against The Latics came at Anfield 12 months ago. Gary Caldwell scored a second-half winner for the visitors in that game.

Wigan ended a six-match winless streak by beating Reading last weekend.
Roberto Martinez's side have only taken two points from their last six home matches.
They are four points and three places better off than at the same stage last season. The Latics have been in the league's bottom five after 27 matches for each of the last four seasons.
Arouna Kone has scored four goals in his last five Premier League appearances.
Jean Beausejour has registered six assists in the top flight this season - the most by a Wigan player in a single Premier League campaign.
Their next league fixtures after playing Liverpool are Manchester City (a), Newcastle (h), Norwich (h), QPR (a).
Ali Al-Habsi will make his 100th Premier League appearance for Wigan, while Emmerson Boyce is poised to reach his century of games for the club.

Liverpool's only two wins in their last six league games have both been by a 5-0 scoreline.
They have 39 points - their lowest tally after 27 games since the 1992-93 season.
The Reds average more points per game against bottom-half opposition (2.41) than any side other than Manchester United, winning nine and losing only one of those 12 matches.
According to Infostrada, Luis Suarez has had a Premier League-high 48 shots on target this season and scored from 38% of those attempts.
Steven Gerrard will make his 400th Premier League start, while Glen Johnson is expected to make his 100th top-flight start for Liverpool.

Swansea v Newcastle Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Swansea v Newcastle of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live Liberty Stadium streaming is available here.Swansea v Newcastle Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at Stadium of Light on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.Swansea fans will have been basking in the afterglow of their Wembley success, but Welsh sport as a whole can't have had too many weekends like that.There was a win in Rome over Italy for the Six Nations rugby boys and in Minsk, where I was, the star of the track cycling World Championships was a 21-year-old from Abergavenny. Becky James won two gold and two bronze medals to become the first Briton to win four medals at a single World Championships, ensuring the sport has a new star.Perhaps not surprisingly, the hotel bar over there wasn't showing the Swansea-Bradford final, so we toasted Becky's success while following a stream of updates on our phones.
This will be Swansea's first outing since the 5-0 Wembley win and there'll be a tremendous atmosphere before the game, but the reality of the Premier League will soon kick in against a seemingly resurgent Newcastle. Alan Pardew's side have won three of their last four league matches, including a 3-2 home win over Chelsea and a 4-2 victory over Southampton last time out, to lift them six points clear of the relegation zone.
A 2-1 success at Aston Villa just over a month ago is their only away win of the season so far, but this is a team playing with renewed purpose and there wasn't much in it in my opinion when they lost at Tottenham the other week.
Ninth-placed Swansea will be looking to do the double over Newcastle and victory here will take them to 40 points already.
Their home record is solid, with only two defeats in the league at the Liberty so far this season, and Swansea's last three games have all featured five goals. Given the attacking nature of both of these teams, we could well be in for a decent game.  

Team News:
Ki Sung-yueng looks poised to return to Swansea's midfield, having played in defence in the League Cup final.
That means Kyle Bartley or Garry Monk will pair up with Ashley Williams at centre-back. Michel Vorm is likely to return in goal if he gets over the flu.
Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini is a doubt with a back injury, so Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa could deputise.
Winger Hatem Ben Arfa may feature for the first time since suffering a torn hamstring on 10 December.

Swansea are bidding to do the double over the Magpies, having won 2-1 at St James' Park in November.
This is their 31st league meeting. Newcastle have dominated, winning 18 to Swansea's nine.

The Swans have won only three times in their last 12 Premier League outings.
Swansea's record after going ahead is the best in the Premier League - a solitary draw representing their only dropped points this season.
The Swans' home record after 13 league games is identical to last year (W5, D6, L2).
Each of the last two League Cup winners have lost their next game: Liverpool losing 2-1 to Arsenal last year and Birmingham beaten 3-1 by West Brom in 2011.
Michu has 15 Premier League goals this season and 19 in all competitions after scoring in Swansea's League Cup triumph.

Newcastle have only won one of their last five league games on their travels but have lost just twice in their last eight games in all competitions.
The Magpies' win against Southampton last time out was the first time they have won a league game this season having conceded first.
They have only been involved in one goalless draw this season in the Premier League, against Norwich on 12 January.
Papiss Cisse's wonder strike against Southampton last weekend took his league tally this season to six.
If chosen, Newcastle's Gabriel Obertan will be making his 50th career Premier League appearance.
Moussa Sissoko has scored three times in his last three league games.

Sunderland v Fulham Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Sunderland v Fulham of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live streaming is available here.Sunderland v Fulham Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at Stadium of Light on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.The projected target among clubs fighting for their Premier League survival is 38 points so this fixture carries greater significance for a Sunderland side still looking over their shoulders.They have lacked consistency all season but the key question is whether their confidence has dipped after suffering three straight league defeats for the first time under Martin O'Neill.This time last year the Black Cats were five points better off in 12th position, but right now they are within sight of the troubled clubs below so this week's rallying call from John O'Shea   is well timed.
Fulham have four points fewer than at this stage last term, but what is identical is their away record - two wins, five draws and six defeats. Their poor form on the road will offer a degree of hope for any worried Wearsiders.
In fact, in the corresponding fixture in November it was Sunderland who banished their away day woes with a 3-1 victory, claiming their first league win on the road for nine months.
I was at Craven Cottage that Sunday afternoon and the turning point was undoubtedly the first-half dismissal of Brede Hangeland. Fulham had the edge until his red card for a two-footed lunge on Lee Cattermole, and even with 10 men they still forced Simon Mignolet to make two important late saves.
Sunderland must rediscover their touch for scoring goals at home after three successive blanks at the Stadium of Light in league and cup, but last week's change of formation will offer encouragement.
Danny Graham partnered Steven Fletcher in attack at West Brom, with Stephane Sessegnon switched to the right. Any strike pairing needs time to gel but the early signs were promising.
I witnessed Sunderland's last home match against Arsenal and if they can start how they finished that day then Fulham could be in for a busy afternoon.
Martin Jol's men are themselves not totally safe from the threat of relegation but if they can add to their away wins at Wigan and West Brom then any lingering fears will surely fade away.

Team News:
Sunderland pair Lee Cattermole and Danny Rose remain sidelined by injury.
Manager Martin O'Neill is expected to keep faith with the 4-4-2 formation he used last weekend, with Danny Graham partnering Steven Fletcher in attack.
Fulham's Simon Davies has overcome a knee injury and could play his first game in almost a year.
Kerim Frei and Kieran Richardson have recovered from their respective pelvis and calf injuries but Mahamadou Diarra is out with a knee problem.

Sunderland's 3-1 victory at Fulham in November was their first win in seven league games against the Whites.
Only once before have the Black Cats beaten Fulham home and away in a top-flight season - that was in 1949-50, when they went on to finish third.

The Black Cats have lost three successive Premier League games for the first time under Martin O'Neill. They are enduring their worst run since suffering four consecutive defeats between March and April 2011 under O'Neill's predecessor Steve Bruce.
Sunderland have won only one of the 12 league games in which they conceded the opening league goal this season, losing 10 of those matches.
They have kept nine clean sheets so far - Liverpool (10) and Manchester City (12) are the only sides with better records in the top flight.
Craig Gardner is set to make his 200th appearance in English football (including matches for Aston Villa and Birmingham), while James McClean is one shy of 50 Premier League games (all for Sunderland).

The Whites are yet to lose a Premier League match in which Dimitar Berbatov scored for them (W4, D3).
Berbatov has scored seven of his nine league goals this season in the first half of matches.
They have kept back-to-back clean sheets. The last time they recorded three successive shut-outs was in February 2010.

Stoke v West Ham Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Stoke v West Ham of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live streaming is available here.Stoke v West Ham Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at Britannia Stadium on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.This is a meeting of two sides whose impressive work in the first half of the season has offset their enormous disappointments so far in the second.At the start of this campaign, both teams will have set themselves the initial aim of the 40-point safety mark - a target they were well on the way to achieving at the turn of the year. Stoke sat on 28 points after 19 games, the Hammers on 26 points after 20, and both may have allowed themselves the thought of a readjustment upwards regarding their ultimate final position - but that was before the recent rot set in.Both will come into this game having earned just four points from their last seven matches, accentuating the significance of their duel.Though neither have genuine relegation concerns, residing nine and six points above the drop zone respectively, their equally alarming blips do need arresting - and quickly.
Scoring goals has remained an issue for both managers - only QPR have registered fewer than Stoke, while both West Ham and the Potters share the unwanted distinction as the least prolific clubs on their travels with just eight apiece. Stoke will therefore be glad they have home advantage, particularly so as 24 of their 33 points have so far been accumulated at the Britannia - a venue at which only Chelsea have managed to gain three points as a visitor.
Only eight of the Hammers' 30 points have come on their travels - they're on a current run of eight games without victory away from Upton Park, suffering five successive reverses in the process.
Everything would seem to point to a home win, yet historically West Ham have enjoyed their visits to the Potteries, scoring on their last 13 trips there and losing just once in the last seven. Perhaps the wise money therefore will be on a draw.  

Team News:
Stoke's Robert Huth begins a three-game ban, while Matthew Etherington and Michael Owen will undergo fitness tests on respective back and thigh problems.
Midfielder Steven Nzonzi could play wearing a protective mask, having broken his nose against Fulham.
West Ham will be without captain Kevin Nolan, who has a broken toe.
Mark Noble is doubtful with an arm problem which saw him miss the Spurs defeat, but Guy Demel has overcome an injury sustained in that game.

Stoke have won just one of their last seven home league matches against West Ham (W1, D2, L4).
Stoke's 1-1 draw at West Ham in November set a new club record of 16 away Premier League matches without a win.

Stoke have lost just one league match at the Britannia Stadium this season - against Chelsea in January.
Only Manchester City and Liverpool have kept more clean sheets than Stoke, but the Potters have now gone nine matches in a row without one.
Stoke have won just one of their last eight league matches (W1, D2, L5).
Only QPR have scored fewer Premier League goals than Stoke this season. The Potters have failed to score in 11 league matches this season, the joint-highest total in the top flight.

West Ham
West Ham haven't won away in the league since 11 November, earning just one point from the last 24 available on the road. Only QPR and Reading have a worse away record in this season's Premier League.
The Hammers haven't lost six consecutive away games since a Premier League record-equalling eight-match losing streak from August to December 2006.
They have scored each of their last nine Premier League penalties.

Southampton v QPR Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Southampton v QPR of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live Southampton v QPR  streaming is available here.Southampton v QPR Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at St Mary's Stadium on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.Both QPR boss Harry Redknapp and his Southampton counterpart Mauricio Pochettino share a birthday on the day of this match and it's fair to say the only present on either manager's wish list is three points from this huge clash at the foot of the table.Relegation with Southampton in the 2004-05 season has so far been Harry Redknapp's only real blip in an otherwise hugely successful managerial career.But with just 11 games to go this season he could be adding another black mark to his CV as QPR are teetering on the precipice of a damaging return to the Championship.
Redknapp has said that they need to win at least six of their remaining matches to have any chance of survival, but there has been no indication that they are in that sort of form. They can be forgiven losing to Manchester United last week, but their display against Swansea in their previous match was abject, and not scoring enough goals has been their Achilles heel.
The facts are that QPR have won two of their 27 matches this season and have scored just 19 goals - half that of Southampton's total.
Only seven top-flight sides have scored more than the Saints' 38 league goals this season and while Rangers must try and take the game to Southampton, they are going to have to man the barricades at the back.
Southampton must be very confident of taking the game to QPR, especially after they comprehensively beat them 3-1 at Loftus Road earlier in the season.
The swift, attacking brand of football they play at St Mary's, led by the talismanic Rickie Lambert, has reaped huge dividends this season - none more so than in the brilliant win over Manchester City in their last home match.

Team News:
Southampton's Jason Puncheon and Gaston Ramirez are pushing for recalls after starting last weekend's defeat by Newcastle on the bench.
Jose Fonte is again expected to be a substitute as he builds towards full fitness after more than two months out with a knee injury.
QPR striker Bobby Zamora has been ruled out with an ankle injury so Loic Remy will take his place.
Tal Ben Haim is struggling with a hip flexor problem and may miss out.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp celebrates his 66th birthday on the day of this match, while Southampton counterpart Mauricio Pochettino will be 41.
Saints beat QPR 3-1 on 17 November, with then-Rangers manager Mark Hughes sacked just days later.
The last time the sides met in the top flight at Southampton was in the 1995-96 season when the hosts enjoyed a 2-0 win thanks to goals from Jason Dodd and Matt Le Tissier. QPR have not lost on any of their four subsequent visits to Southampton, all in the Championship.

Southampton have dropped 27 points from winning positions in the league this season, more than any other team in the top flight.
Against Newcastle, Jos Hooiveld scored his third own goal of the season, equalling a Premier League record shared with Scott Dann (2011-12), Andreas Jakobsson (2004-05) and John Pantsil (2010-11).
Rickie Lambert is the top-scoring Englishman in the Premier League with 12 goals, and he has also contributed four assists.
Morgan Schneiderlin is the only top-flight player to have made over 100 tackles this season.

QPR have scored only four goals in their last 10 Premier League games.
Against Manchester United, QPR set a club record of failing to score in five consecutive Premier League home matches. It is the longest streak in the top flight since Portsmouth didn't score in six home matches in a row in 2007 - when Harry Redknapp was in charge at Pompey.
QPR have picked up just 13 points from 14 games since Redknapp took over.

Man Utd v Norwich Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Man Utd v Norwich of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live Man Utd v Norwich  streaming is available here.Man Utd v Norwich Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at Goodison Park on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.On 2 March 1991 a fresh-faced, willowy winger called Ryan Giggs trotted on the pitch at Old Trafford to make his Manchester United debut as a substitute against Everton.On 2 March 2013, 22 years later to the very day, he will play his 1000th career game against Norwich City; that is assuming that Sir Alex Ferguson has not had a sentimentality bypass and decides to leave him out, which seems unlikely given that news of a new one-year contract for the Welshman was released 24 hours before kick-off. It has already been a season of landmarks for Giggs, his goal against Everton (them again) three weeks ago ensured that he has scored a league goal in each of the last 23 seasons. He's already overtaken Mark Hughes to go joint seventh in Manchester United's all-time goalscorers' list; a 13th title winner's medal seems almost a certainty; a third Champions League winners' medal is a possibility.
Giggs is only the third British outfield player to reach the thousand game mark, after Tony Ford and Graeme Alexander.
In the modern era, the only player who compares to Giggs is the fantastic Paolo Maldini, who played 25 seasons for AC Milan.
Milan retired their number three shirt when Maldini stopped playing, promising that it would only ever be worn again if one of his sons should graduate to their first team; after all, how could the number three shirt in red and black stripes bear any other name than a Maldini? Maybe United will consider doing the same when Giggs pulls off his number 11 jersey for the last time?
That is still at least a year away. Maldini finally called it a day on 1028 games for club and country when he was a month short of his 41st birthday. Giggs isn't 40 until November and will play on another season as living proof that - despite what some TV stations tell you - people were kicking a bit of round leather across a pitch even before the Premier League was spawned.

Team News:
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Robin van Persie is available for selection after recovering from a hip injury.
Phil Jones is not yet ready to return, and Paul Scholes is also absent with a knee problem.
Norwich are still without midfielder Alex Tettey due to a knee injury.
New signing Kei Kamara may be handed his first start following his impressive goalscoring display off the bench against Everton last weekend.

Norwich last won at Old Trafford in August 1989, a 2-0 win in the old Division One.
In five Premier League visits to Old Trafford, Norwich have drawn once and lost the rest.

Manchester United
Manchester United have not lost a Premier League match since a 1-0 defeat at Norwich on 17 November.
Only one team in Premier League history has gained more points from their opening 27 games than United's 68 this season (Chelsea had 69 in 2005-06).
United have scored the same number of goals (63) as Chelsea did in 2009-10 after 27 games. Chelsea went on to end the season with a record 103 goals.
Nani has assisted more goals than any other player in the Premier League since August 2009 (32).
Rafael's goal against QPR was United's 12th by a defender this Premier League season. That is the most for any club (Chelsea and Norwich have eight goals by defenders).

Norwich City
Against Everton last weekend, Norwich engineered a come-from-behind win for the first time since March 2012 (2-1 at home against Wolves).
In doing so, they also ended a run of nine Premier League matches without victory.
Kei Kamara became the first player from Sierra Leone to score a goal in the Premier League with his header against Everton.
Striker Grant Holt has now scored 20 Premier League goals for Norwich City - only Chris Sutton (33) has scored more for The Canaries.

Everton v Reading Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Everton v Reading of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live Everton v Reading  streaming is available here.Everton v Reading Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at Goodison Park on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.This fixture is one Everton will think they have to win to maintain any hopes of a top-four finish, while it's one Reading would be delighted to take anything from in their fight to stay in the Premier League.Everton have been so organised and hard to beat all season that their recent back-to-back defeats have raised a few eyebrows. A return of just one point from nine couldn't have been more untimely.This is the first of five home games in the next six matches in all competitions that will define their season, after which they could be in an FA Cup semi-final and still close to the Champions League challengers. Goodison Park has been their foundation; only Chelsea have taken all three points away with them in the last 17 matches. Yet the Toffees have too often been the draw specialists and are at the stage of the season where they need wins, particularly in fixtures such as this.
If they can stay in the mix, you sense there could be a twist to the tale. They still have to go to Spurs and Arsenal, rivals for fourth spot, there is still a Merseyside derby at Anfield to be played, and their last fixture is at Stamford Bridge, which is why any further slips ups at home cannot be in the script.
The reverse fixture saw Reading win for the first time in the season, at the 11th attempt, but they have only managed four victories since and will be desperate for a reaction after the hugely disappointing performance in the home defeat by Wigan.
They've lost seven of their last eight away matches and have to find some way of picking up some points. It's the beginning of a run of pivotal fixtures for Brian McDermott's men that also sees them travel to Manchester United and Arsenal and face huge home games against relegation rivals Aston Villa and Southampton. 

Team News:
Everton hope to welcome back top scorer Marouane Fellaini, who missed the FA Cup win over Oldham with a knee injury.
Goalkeeper Tim Howard is a doubt after picking up a knock in that match against the Latics.
Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak begins a three-match suspension after being sent off last week, so Nick Blackman or Adam Le Fondre will start.
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and forward Jason Roberts remain sidelined with respective shoulder and hip injuries.

Everton's only defeat at Goodison Park in five previous meetings with Reading was in the FA Cup two seasons ago.
Adam Le Fondre scored both of the Royals goals as they beat Everton 2-1 in the reverse fixture in November. He featured from the start that day, playing 81 minutes. It was Reading's first win of the season.
Reading have won three of their last four matches against Everton in all competitions, including the last two.

Everton are in danger of losing three successive league matches for the first time since September-October 2011.
David Moyes's side have lost only one of their previous 17 home league games, taking 36 points from a possible 51 in the process (W10, D6, L1).
The Toffees have conceded 13 Premier League headed goals this season, the equal-most in the division with Wigan.
Everton lost for the third time after taking the lead last weekend. They have dropped 19 points from winning positions this season - only opponents Reading (20) and Southampton (27) have fared worse.

The Royals are on a two-game losing streak, and only Wigan (15) have lost more league games than Brian McDermott's side (14) this season.
With just five points from a possible 39, the Royals have the worst top-flight away record.
Reading have allowed the opposition more shots on target than any other top-flight side this campaign (158).
The last 12 of Reading's Premier League goals have come either in the opening 10 minutes (three) or the last 20 minutes of matches (nine).

Chelsea v West Brom Barclays Premier League Preview 2nd March 2013

Match Preview: Saturday,2nd March 2013, One of the important match Chelsea v West Brom of Barclays Premier League HD Quality Live Chelsea v West Brom  streaming is available here.Chelsea v West Brom Live Stream online Barclays Premier League Video Free The match will take plcae at Stamford Bridge on 3/2/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things.I fear Stamford Bridge will be a raucous bear-pit with the anger of the boo-boys creating an acidic atmosphere.The midweek outburst by Rafa Benitez over his interim manager title and confirmation of his May departure will simply fuel the enmity felt towards him by Chelsea fans. He's been in a no-win situation since day one.West Brom die-hards are equally unlikely to want to kiss and make up with Peter Odemwingie. His career is much altered since he scored West Brom's Hawthorns winner against Chelsea in November. The world is a hugely changed place since the Baggies' last league win at the Bridge in September 1978.
Then, George was being nagged by Mildred in the top TV show while John Travolta was wooing Olivia Newton-John with Summer Nights and Frank Lampard was just three months old - now he's one goal away from an incredible 200 for Chelsea.
Odemwingie on the other hand is hoping to resurrect his West Brom career after his last ill-fated trip to west London trying to bludgeon a move to QPR on deadline day.
With the in-form Romelu Lukaku ineligible to play against his parent club and Shane Long an injury doubt, Steve Clarke may have to turn to the Nigerian - who's played just three minutes of football since that Loftus Road farce. 

Team News:
Chelsea are expected to recall fit-again Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta after both defenders sat out the Blues' midweek FA Cup win.
Midfielder Yossi Benayoun is out with an ankle injury.
West Brom will be without top scorer Romelu Lukaku, who is ineligible to play against his parent club.
The Baggies have Isaiah Brown in their squad and, at 16 years and 54 days, he could become the youngest-ever player to appear in the Premier League.

West Brom have beaten Chelsea in each of their last two games, both at The Hawthorns, having lost all previous 11 Premier League encounters.
Chelsea have won all six Premier League meetings at Stamford Bridge, scoring 17 goals and conceding just once.
Albion's last win at Chelsea was a 3-1 Division One triumph in September 1978.
The Baggies can become the first club to do the double over The Blues this season.

Chelsea have taken 25 points from a possible 45 in the league under Rafa Benitez (W7, D4, L4). It's the fifth-best record over this period, behind Manchester United (38), Tottenham (34), Manchester City (28) and Arsenal (27).
They have conceded at least twice in four of their last six league encounters, losing two of the last three.
Chelsea have been awarded more penalties (nine) than any other side this campaign.
It's 12 years since the Blues last lost a Premier League home game in the month of March, a 4-2 defeat against Sunderland in 2001.
If selected, Ashley Cole will be making his 200th Premier League start for Chelsea, and Juan Mata his 100th Blues appearance.

West Brom
Steve Clarke played for Chelsea between 1987-98, winning the Cup-Winners' Cup, FA Cup and League Cup. He later became Jose Mourinho's assistant as the Blues claimed two league titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup.
The Baggies have 40 points from 27 games - a Premier League club record - and the most since the 1978-79 campaign, when they also had 40 points. That was the last season they completed the double over Chelsea en route to a third-placed finish.
West Brom are the sole Premier League team not to have had an Englishman score for them this season. Fulham (2001-02 and 2005-06) are the only club to have gone an entire season without an English scorer.

Wolves vs Watford Championship Preview March 1st, 2013

Match Preview: Friday,1st March 2013, One of the important match Wolves vs Watford of  Championship HD Quality Live Wolves vs Watford streaming is availahere.Wolves vs Watford Live Stream online Championshiponline Video Free The match will take plcae at Tannadice Park on 3/1/13 Preview Pictures and Wallpapers its mean all things are available in my blog please see and check here for latest things .TEAM NEWS.Stephen Hunt comes into contention for his first league start of the season on Friday night as struggling Wolves play host to promotion-chasing Watford.
The wideman has missed the majority of this season with a hip injury, only to suffer a lengthy chest infection upon his return to fitness.
Hunt has now recovered from the virus and is pressing his claims for a starting berth as Wolves aim to record their first win for under-pressure boss Dean Saunders and haul themselves out of the Championship relegation zone.
Youngster Matt Doherty made his first-ever league start for Wolves in last Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to Cardiff and should overcome the tight calf which forced him to be replaced by Kevin Foley in the latter stages.
Saunders started with a new-found 3-5-1-1 formation against the Bluebirds before reverting to their more familiar 4-4-2 at half-time when Wolves were losing, and it remains to be seen how he will line up against Watford as the club look to turn their fortunes around.


If Dean Saunders wants to hold on to some positives during this terrible run of results, it is that Wolves are not cut off in the bottom three and still have plenty of opportunities to avoid relegation. On the other hand, Saunders has to be wondering what he has to do to turn around the confidence in a squad that has taken a lot of body shots in the last few weeks to sink into the relegation zone.

Wolves are still 22nd in the Championship following a 1-2 home loss to Cardiff City last Sunday and that means they remain just 2 points behind Barnsley in the safety zone. With the Sky TV cameras in town, Wolves actually can move out of the bottom three, for 24 hours at least with a win in this one on Friday night. They have a 4-6-7 home record this season, scoring 21 goals and conceding 26 in those games.

The loss to Cardiff last Sunday means Wolves have not won any of their last 12 games in all competitions and begin this one having lost their last 2 League games. Wolves have won 1 of their last 13 home games in the Championship and have failed to win any of their last 6 here while they have lost 4 of those games.


One of the surprise packages of the Championship this season will be really looking to upset the applecart by taking away one of the automatic promotion spots this season. Watford were expected to be a mid-table side this season, but their form has taken them into the top two and now they may just be focusing on tracking down Cardiff City at the top of the table.

The side begin this weekend in 2nd place in the Championship and have a chance to cut the deficit to the leaders Cardiff and extend their lead over 3rd place Hull City with a game taking place on Friday night. Watford have a 10-2-5 record away from Vicarage Road this season, scoring 38 goals and conceding 24 and that makes Watford the highest away scorers and also the team with the most away wins so far.

In contrast to Wolves, Watford have been in fabulous form and have only lost 1 of their last 9 Championship games, while they have won 7 of those games in that run. Watford have won 5 of their last 6 away games in the Championship and they have only lost 1 of their last 10 games on their travels in the League.

Paddy McCarthy will sit out the game through suspension following his red card at QPR last weekend. Claude Davis is likely to replace the Irishman at the back against his old club Derby. Midfielder Alex Marrow has had a setback in his recovery from a long standing ankle injury.
Derby's Tomasz Cywka is still sidelined with a knee injury. Jake Buxton (groin) and goalkeeper Saul Deeney (shoulder) are still missing. Russell Anderson and James Bailey may return to the Rams squad.

Derby V Crystal Palace - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.Duo to return for Derby.Defenders Gareth Roberts and Jake Buxton will make a timely return to Derby's starting line-up when promotion-chasing Crystal Palace visit Pride Park on Friday night.
Left-back Roberts has completed a three-match suspension for the red card he received during the defeat at Hull.

The 35-year-old comes back just as teenager Michael Hoganson joins the Rams' list of injured defenders. Hoganson, who has filled in for Roberts, was forced off against Watford last weekend with hip and foot problems.

Midfielder Ben Davies covered at left-back in the second half at Vicarage Road, having started the game at right-back, but he is doubtful with a groin injury.
Buxton only returned from a nine-week absence with knee ligament trouble in February. The problem has been playing up recently, ruling him out of three matches, but the centre-half came off the bench to play the second half at Watford.
Buxton being available again will see John Brayford, who has been partnering Richard Keogh at the heart of the back four, revert to his more accustomed right-back role.

Full-back Kieron Freeman (ankle) is a week or so away from fitness while versatile defender James O'Connor (knee) is also still out.
Teenage midfielder Will Hughes will miss the visit of Palace and the trip to npower Championship leaders Cardiff next Tuesday with the groin strain that has sidelined him for the past two games.
On-loan Norwich striker Chris Martin could be in line for his home debut after making his first appearance for the Rams as a half-time substitute at Watford.
Crystal Palace are hoping Wilfried Zaha will be fit for the trip.

The Manchester United-bound winger missed last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday with an ankle knock and will be assessed ahead of kick-off.
The Eagles are still without a host of players through injury.
Skipper Paddy McCarthy (groin) remains a long-term absentee and fellow defenders Joel Ward (groin) and Danny Gabbidon (hamstring) will miss out again, although the latter pair could be back in the next week or so.
Midfielders Owen Garvan (knee), Andre Moritz (ankle) and Alex Nimely (hamstring) are also on the injured list.
Full-back Dean Moxey, an unused sub against the Owls, will be hoping to be involved against his former club.
