HARPS HOPING TO GET SEASON BACK ON TRACK AWAY TO WATERFORD

first_imgFinn Harps will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat last weekend when they make the long trip south on Friday to take on Waterford United at the RSC (kick-off 7.45pm).Although Waterford only won their first game of the season last weekend, at the seventh time of asking, Harps manager Ollie Horgan said that they will still provide a tough task for his team on Friday.“Waterford are a very difficult team to beat, especially down there,” said Horgan as he prepares for the trip to the south-east. “We were lucky to get a draw at home against them when we played them on the opening day of the season. They haven’t conceded in their last three games so they will be very difficult to break down.“They have loads of attacking options in their team including Vinny Sullivan, Willie John Keily, Conor Meade and Jack Doherty to mention a few, so we know they have the firepower to damage us.”Last weekend, Horgan watched his side lose for the second time this season in a 1-0 away defeat in Longford. However, the game was decided by a dubious penalty and Horgan felt his side deserved something from the game.“Had we been beaten by three or four, out the door if you like, we might be more content and I could stand here and say: ‘The better side won’,” Horgan said. “It’s hard. The penalty decision was very, very harsh. Really, there wasn’t a whole lot in it apart form that. It’s hard to take. It was a decent cross, nothing great. Packie seemed to stumble into it and he seemed to be pushed into it in a way, but that’s not for me to stay.“We didn’t get the rub of the green, but so be it. We won’t dwell too much on it. We matched them for most of the ninety minutes, but we got nothing out of it.,” said Horgan.“We limited them to a couple of chances. They are very strong at set pieces, their delivery and movement is excellent. We dealt with that, but then we conceded the penalty. Longford are a decent side with some serious players.”Although Harps were defeated 3-0 on their last visit to the RSC in June, they were unbeaten in their previous four visits there (3 draws and 1 victory). The two clubs met in the opening day of the 2014 season at Finn Park, with the game ending in a scoreless draw.Kevin McHugh remains out while Sean McCarron is also a doubt ahead of Friday’s trip to the RSC. Tommy Bonner serves a one match suspension for accumulating four yellow cards, while Keith Cowan serves the second of a four match ban as a result of his red card in the 1-1 draw with Wexford Youths a couple of weeks ago. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~TEAM NEWSSuspended: Tommy Bonner, Keith Cowan.Doubtful: Sean McCarron.

Chinese shuttlers are scared of us now: Kidambi Srikanth

first_imgAce shuttler Kidambi Srikanth, who won four Super Series titles this year, feels the strong Chinese shuttlers are scared of the Indian contingent now after a string of good performances against them.On the back of reaching four Superseries finals and bagging four titles, Srikanth was recently feted with the Sportsman of the Year award in New Delhi.”Unfortunately I got injured after the Olympics. I had never been away from the game for so long. It took a great deal of hard work to make a comeback,” the shuttler said at an event.In 2016, Srikanth endured probably the toughest year of his career, where he faced recurring knee and ankle injuries.It is no secret that Srikanth was disillusioned for sometime after losing to Lin Dan in the quarter-finals of the event, but a brief break from the game did him a world of good.”It was a tough loss against Lin and I couldn’t take it. It was really heartbreaking. I kept telling myself, that I have to work hard. Lin Dan played 5 per cent better in Olympics and he won. And then I played 10 per cent better this year and it worked in my favour,” Srikanth added.The Guntur boy gave a major part of the credit to chief national coach and mentor Pullela Gopichand, who back in the 2000s started the Gopichand Academy.Srikanth was also of the view that the time has come where Chinese players have started respecting the Indians, and to a certain extent are scared of them.advertisement”After Gopi Bhaiya retired, he wanted us to achieve whatever he wanted to achieve. If Gopi Bhaiya didn’t start the academy, we won’t be here. He is a very strict coach, but a friend to us also. He has the experience to guide us in tough situations. Now I think we have reached a level where Chinese are scared of us.”Asked what are his goals for 2018, Srikanth said, “I have played a quarter-finals in the major events. I want to really win a medal at them now.”last_img read more
