LITESPORT London Lite Monday, 9 November 2009 41 Inbrief Ranieri rages at Vieira clash ROMA coach Claudio Ranieri has lashed out at Inter Milan midfielder Patrick Vieira after an elbow by the Frenchman in yesterdays 1-1 draw left Daniele De Rossi with a fractured cheekbone. De Rossi will have to undergo an operation, said Ranieri. Vieira always jumps with his elbows open and for that reason in England he was always sent off. Vieira left Arsenal in the summer of 2005 for Juventus. Browns saved by Jan the man JIMMY BULLARD insists Hulls spirited 2-1 win over Stoke demonstrated the players are fully behind their under-fire boss Phil Brown. The Tigers came from behind and secured a last-minute win through Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink. Bullard said: We thoroughly believe in the manager and the staff and we want him to stay. I believe he will -- and hopefully for a long time. He is a great man and a great manager. Benitez out to beat the Blues LIVERPOOL manager Rafael Benitez believes his players are angry at the way their season has gone as they prepare to face Birmingham at Anfield this evening. Liverpool need a win tto get their campaign back on track after a spell of just one victory in eight matches. Benitez said: Everyone here, every fan, every player, wants to see the team doing better. I have belief we will. Live on ESPN, from 7.00pm (KO: 8.00pm) Mowbray hails his great Scott CELTIC manager Tony Mowbray has urged striker Scott McDonald to guarantee himself a place in the side by scoring goals. The Australian came off the bench to net twice in the 3-3 draw at Falkirk. Mowbray threw down the gauntlet to McDonald, saying: There is competition for places but Im delighted that he scored a couple of goals. From my perspective, youd like to be in the position where you dont leave Scott out. Lyon take pride in high fives LIVERPOOLS Champions League rivals Lyon missed the chance to go top of Ligue 1 as they were held to a 5-5 draw by Marseille in a thriller at Stade Gerland. Marseille were 4-2 ahead with 11 minutes to go, but Lisandro Lopez scored twice, the second from the penalty spot, in four minutes and Michel Bastos netted in the 90th minute to put Lyon 5-4 in front, before Jeremy Toulalans own goal handed Marseille a late leveller. MILLWALL v AFC WIMBLEDON Spirit of the Crazy Gang will help tame Millwall ing and pressing the opposition when we dont have the ball, as I felt we were pretty poor last week at Chester. Hopefully well come up with a set piece or two to surprise Millwall. The players are aware of the fan- tastic support we will have on Mon- day night and Im sure the sight of our own yellow and blue army will be enough to inspire every player who gets the honour of playing.

The Conference side, born out of the club who beat Liverpool in the 1988 Final, travel to The Den, where Kenny Jacketts men are undefeated in League One this season. Brown said: These fans started this club to enjoy themselves and bring back some of the spirit of the old Wim- bledon. I am sure the old Wimbledon boys would be going to Millwall looking to win and we will be doing exactly the same. Although everyone at the club real- ises that tonights task is a very daunt- ing one, no doubt the customary Wimbledon fighting spirit will rear its head so far as the FA Cup is concerned Millwall have more experi- ence than us and are techni- cally better, but all of that is out of the window in the Cup. Wimbledon have been built on a tra- dition of cup upsets and fans love being the underdogs. Danny Kedwell, who has scored 11 goals for AFC this term, has recov- ered from a groin injury and will spearhead the Dons attack. But most of Browns (right) pre-game focus has been on ensuring they can frustrate their League One opponents, but also promised his side will have a few tricks up their sleeves.
