LITESPORT 38 Tuesday, 10 November 2009 London Lite COLE SET FORInjurywill notstop England starfacing oldclub by james goldman Fabio would Stitched up: Darren Fletcher Inbrief Rooney rocked by FA warning lWAYNE ROONEY has been warned about his future conduct by the FA after appearing to mouth 12 men into a television camera after Manchester Uniteds 1-0 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday. As LiteSport revealed yesterday, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who condemned referee Martin Atkinson as absolutely ridiculous, will have no action taken against him. An FA spokesman said: Wayne Rooney has been warned. Bridge is over troubled water lMARK HUGHES has launched a defence of Wayne Bridge after his Match of the Day caning by Alan Hansen. The respected pundit ridiculed Bridges performance against Burnley on Saturday. At one point Hansen said Bridge was so bad I almost felt sorry for him. Hughes responded, saying: I am sure that the pundits process involves looking at incidents in games, but not taking it as a whole. Carsley slams Ngog pool dive lBIRMINGHAM captain Lee Carsley slammed Liverpools David Ngog for what he described as an embarrassing case of cheating to win a controversial penalty. Ngog scored a wonderful opener in the 2-2 draw at Anfield, but went to ground in the penalty area with Carsley apparently nowhere near making contact. Its a joke. I knew I didnt touch him and I said to the referee to book me or send me off, he said. Posh confirm Fergies going lDARREN FERGUSONS dismissal at Peterborough is expected to confirmed later today after Barry Fry paid tribute to his miraculous achievements at London Road. Ferguson, the 37-year-old son of Manchester United boss Sir Alex, guided Posh to successive promotions after taking over at the club in January 2007. I and the club would like to thank him for his miraculous achievements, said director of football Fry. Notts prepare to count cost lNOTTS COUNTYS parent company will be wound up next week unless a six-figure tax debt is paid. The ambitious Coca-Cola League Two club are the subject of an order scheduled to be heard at the Bankruptcy Division of the High Court on 18 November. The debt, which is thought to relate to PAYE and VAT submissions, dates back more than two years. CHELSEA today eased fears over Ash- ley Coles injury problems and are confident he will be fit to face former club Arsenal on 29 November at the latest. Cole suffered more damage to a depressed fracture of the tibia, which he first sustained against Atletico Madrid last month, in the win against Manchester United on Sunday. The 27-year-old was only able to play the match because he had an injection beforehand and it has been reported he will now be out for weeks after making the injury worse. He has been excused international duty and will miss Englands friendly against Brazil on Saturday, but it is understood Chelsea dont expect him to sit out much action with them. They play Wolves and Porto before they face Arsenal in a top-of-the-table encounter at the Emirates Stadium and the worse case scenario is that he will be absent for just the first two of those games. ButtherearestilldoubtswhetherJose Bosingwa will be back playing this month after undergoing exploratory arthroscopy on his knee injury yesterday. Bosingwa has missed the last six games with the problem and the club are hoping the procedure will reveal whether he needs an operation or not. They expect to find out tomorrow and if he needs surgery, he will be out for another month. Still, Chelsea have at least been boosted by the return of 18m summer signing Yury Zhirkov to training and he will be able to cover for Cole if he is absent against Wolves or Porto. One man nailed on to be playing against former club Arsenal at the end of the month is Nicolas Anelka. The France international has made a blistering start to the new season, but Anelkas immediate focus is on ensur- ing the Republic of Ireland dont shatter Hes a must: Harry backs Crouch for England Fletcher: Wengers remarks are turning refs against me MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Darren Fletcher fears he is being singled out by referees as a result of comments made by Arsene Wenger earlier in the season. Wenger didnt name the 25-year- old directly but accused United of anti-football after their 2-1 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford in September before adding his disbelief that a certain player had gone unpunished. Fletcher insists the accusation he is a dirty player is now coming back to haunt him after he was adjudged to have fouled Chelseas Ashley Cole in the clash between the top two in the Premier League on Sunday. I think we are starting to see Mr Wengers comments starting to influence referees which is a shame really, said Fletcher. It was clearly not a foul. I knew at the time and I have watched it again on the replay. by james goldman the top six P W D L F A Pts Chelsea 12 10 0 2 29 8 30 arsenal 11 8 1 2 36 14 25 MAnUtD 12 8 1 3 23 12 25 ToTTenham 12 7 1 4 23 17 22 AstonViLLA 12 6 3 3 20 12 21 MAnCity 11 5 5 1 21 14 20 H index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html
