Solskjaer sweating over injured stars

first_imgSince then they have drawn 1-1 with both Wolves and Southampton and lost to Crystal Palace, to leave them sitting eighth in the Premier League standings and in need of a win against Brendan Rodgers’ men.Under normal circumstances and with a full squad available it would not be easy as the Foxes are a strong looking side this season with hopes of breaking into the top six.But it will be even harder if the latest reports of an injury crisis at Old Trafford turn out to be correct.According to the Mirror, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Antony Martial are all struggling ahead of the game and will be a big concern for Solskjaer.Wan-Bissaka has impressed since arriving from Crystal Palace but has been stopped in his tracks after picking up a back problem that forced him to pull out of the England squad.England team-mate Lingard has been struck down by sickness and has missed both the games against Bulgaria and Kosovo, while Luke Shaw has a hamstring issue.Influential midfielder Pogba is also a concern after he was forced to withdraw from the France squad with an ankle injury.Just to make matters worse, Martial may not recover in time after picking up a knock that kept him out of the draw with Southampton.Solskjaer will now be keeping his fingers crossed for some good news in the lead up to the game against a Foxes side that are unbeaten and will fancy their chances of getting a positive result at the weekend.0Shares0000(Visited 44 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000United boss Solskjaer sweating over injured starsLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 11 – Manchester United could be forced to field a weakened squad for the crunch clash with Leicester City, with several key players currently nursing injuries.United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already feeling the heat following an underwhelming start to the season which began with a 4-0 win over Chelsea.last_img read more

It was the relief he was looking for after a trying up-and-down season. The Wolfpack used stout defense and just enough offense to cap a late-season rally with a 14-0 victory over South Florida on Saturday that gave them a three-game winning streak to close the year. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson“This might be one of the biggest wins, when it’s all said and done, that this university could have had,” Amato said. “It could be the steppingstone for a lot of things.” Amato may be overstating it just a bit, but the victory did pick up a program that was 2-4 midway through the year and in danger of one of the worst seasons in school history. Instead, the Wolfpack (7-5) turned it around with five wins in the final six games. “For us to come here, win like we did and shut them out … it settles it down a little bit,” said defensive end Mario Williams, who indicated he’ll likely go out on top by declaring for the NFL draft sometime next week. Brian Clark caught a 9-yard touchdown pass and Andre Brown scored on a 1-yard run as the Wolfpack did all their scoring in the second quarter then held on to hand South Florida (6-6) its first shutout in school history. It was a disappointing end for the upstart Bulls, who were playing in their first bowl in school history. They launched their program nine years ago, moved up to Division I-A in 2001 and capped their first season in the Big East with a bowl bid. center_img CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Chuck Amato darted right, then danced left, successfully missing the bucket of water his victorious North Carolina State players tried to dump on him.

SEARCH LAUNCHED FOR FAMILY OF DONEGAL SOLDIER FOUND IN AUSTRALIA

first_imgResearchers are looking to match DNA from a Donegal family with a mystery Australian soldier killed in action during the First World War.The graveyard at Fromelles in Australia where Joseph Curran from Crossroads is believed to rest.Researchers for the Fromelles Project are looking to match up the remains of Australian soldiers found at a mass grave in 2008.So far 144 of the 250 soldiers found in the grave have now been found and named on a grave stone in the new Fromelles cemetery. The remainder say ‘Australian soldier known unto God.’The researchers need to find a living relative so they can match their DNA to the soldier so as to properly identify him.The soldier which the project is trying to match with his Donegal relatives is believed to be Joseph Curran who was born in 1885 and killed in action on July 19th, 1916.There are several young men of Irish background who died at Fromelles. Joseph’s grandparents migrated to New South Wales in 1868 from Crossroads in Donegal.Their names were Michael Curran and Ann Duggan or Dugan and both were born around 1837 in Crossroads.Michael and Ann arrived in NSW with small children Margaret, Sheely, Bridget and John and then had three more children in NSW, Michael, Catherine and Mary. Ann died after giving birth to Mary in 1871.Catherine is the mother of the soldier researchers are trying to find a branch of the family tree with the female DNA that runs down through the Duggan family.Unfortunately none of the Curran girls in Australia had any female descendants. “So we are now looking in Donegal, trying to track any Duggan or Dugan families from Crossroads, or anyone who has any knowledge of the family,” researcher Margaret O’Leary told Donegal Daily.She can be contacted at the email address marg@rickarby.net or PO Box number 46 Salamander Bay 2317 NSW AUSTRALIA.SEARCH LAUNCHED FOR FAMILY OF DONEGAL SOLDIER FOUND IN AUSTRALIA was last modified: February 9th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AusrataliaFromellesJoseph CurranWorld War 1last_img read more
