  • Meyer goes flag to flag at Maquoketa

    first_imgBy Rob HinckleyMAQUOKETA, Iowa (July 6) – The brakes were applied in the turn, rear part of the car kicked slightly to the right and then Kory Meyer was back on the gas.The Olin ace did that to perfection Saturday evening at Maquoketa Speedway during Kids Night, racing to a good advantage and hanging on in lapped traffic to win the 20-lap QCJeeps.com IMCA Modified feature.“I was hoping they weren’t going to be able to get around me,” Meyer said. “I was sticking to the bottom and letting the race run out.”Meyer took Doug Haack’s green flag from the pole and led every circuit despite the 3/8-mile, dirt oval blackened surface not the ideal track for his car.“It slows everything down a bit and we’ve struggled with our car on that. It’s been better when there’s traction, but we got it figured out tonight.”Nathan Hall was looking for his second win in two nights and held the runner up spot most of the race.

  • Keane a cause of concern for Ireland

    first_img The 32-year-old is in line to win his 124th senior cap at the Aviva Stadium on Tuesday evening, but only if he is given the go-ahead to play after suffering an injury during the creditable 0-0 draw in Sweden on Friday evening. Manager Giovanni Trapattoni, however, is hopeful that his captain, Ireland’s leading international goalscorer with 54, will be fit and ready to play again. The Italian said: “Robbie is having a scan on his calf. He has a little bit of pain, but the scan will clarify the situation. I think he can play, but we will wait for the decision after this scan.” Keane freely admits he has played for much of his career carrying niggling injuries, and he will be desperate to be involved in a game which could have a major bearing on Ireland’s hopes of making it to the finals in Brazil next summer. The deserved point with which Trapattoni’s men returned from Stockholm kept them firmly in the race for second place in Group C, although they dropped to fourth place as a result of Austria’s 6-0 demolition of the Faroe Islands. However, with the Swedes not in action on Tuesday evening, victory over the Austrians would leave the Republic in possession, for the time being at least, of the runners-up spot, and no one within the camp is underestimating the importance of the fixture. Asked if he would field the same team at the Aviva Stadium as he did at the Friends Arena, Trapattoni said, somewhat coyly: “Ninety-nine per cent, maybe. “Obviously there is the scan for Robbie Keane – Robbie played very, very well and his experience has been important. I think he can be ready. “But this game, we must think about all our possibilities. It’s a game we want to win, but also those who don’t start, the one or two or three changes (substitutions) will be very, very important.” Glenn Whelan returned to training today and is expected to resume against Austria, but as well as Keane, Trapattoni has a doubt over Jon Walters, who has a back problem. Skipper Robbie Keane is anxiously awaiting the outcome of a scan on his calf as the Ireland prepare for their World Cup qualifier showdown with Austria.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

  • Martinez defends Howard display

    first_img Howard was one of the stars of the World Cup last year, but his form has dipped considerably since he returned to England. The American was dropped for Joel Robles at the turn of the year after making a number of mistakes and he was at fault again at Goodison Park on Sunday as Everton grabbed a lucky point thanks to an 88th-minute equaliser. Just after Steven Naismith had put Everton ahead, Howard pushed Jamie Vardy’s shot into the path of David Nugent to allow the Foxes to equalise and soon after the goalkeeper flapped at a cross, and Esteban Cambiasso drove a low shot into the home goal. Luckily for Howard and Everton, Romelu Lukaku’s late diving header flew in after a huge deflection off Matthew Upson to snatch a point for the hosts. “I don’t see Tim as directly responsible of the draw,” Everton boss Martinez said. “The first one is quite an unlucky action. He gets in some sort of a block, it hits John Stones’ legs and it ends up in the Leicester striker’s footpath. “We have three players around him and it ends up with him. “I don’t think it was such a major error. “I don’t think it would solve anything if we just single out the player who made that mistake. As a team we need to defend much better in those situations.” Everton won only once during the eight-game stretch Robles had in goal, and it appears the Spaniard will not replace Howard in goal for Thursday’s Europa League game against Young Boys. Press Association Roberto Martinez leapt to the defence of Tim Howard after the Everton goalkeeper put in another sub-par performance in the 2-2 draw against Leicester. “Tim Howard is one of our leaders, one of the most solid performers,” Martinez said. “What he brings as a goalkeeper is his understanding with other players, what he has achieved in the game, and when he is fully fit, he is a very strong performer. “His performance against Chelsea was outstanding and his performance against Young Boys, after the first goal when he doesn’t see the ball, was terrific. “I don’t think that is the difference between getting three points and one point today.” Howard was not the only one who failed to perform on Sunday. Ross Barkley lacked dynamism and creativity, Aaron Lennon quickly faded after a bright start and Lukaku missed several opportunities before helping the hosts earn a point with his deflected header. Everton’s home form was key to their fifth-place finish last term, but they have won three and drawn six at Goodison Park this year. Nigel Pearson was disappointed not to take three points back to Leicester. “The dressing room is very disappointed because we did very well today,” the Foxes boss said. “We have got to turn these sort of performances into wins. There is not getting away from the predicament we find ourselves in but the performance was there today. We will have to bounce back.” Leicester are four points from safety and have Manchester City, Tottenham, Southampton and Chelsea to face in their final 11 games. Pearson has not seen his team win in their last five Premier League matches, but he is still confident they will stay up. “If we apply ourselves in the way we did today and at Arsenal, I think we will be fine,” he said. “The target is for us to get out of the mess we are in. I can’t predict what (our) points total is going to be. First and foremost we have to stay in touch. “We have been bottom since late November. It is a long time for the players to deal with the pressure of being in that situation. “They conduct themselves exceptionally well. The spirit they have showed in a difficult season is very commendable.” last_img read more
