Bruce hopes Dame N’Doye can fire Hull to Premier League safety

first_imgSteve Bruce hopes deadline-day recruit Dame N’Doye can hit a trademark hot streak to guide Hull to safety after his match-winning brace at Crystal Palace.Senegal striker N’Doye wasted a number of chances before plundering a second-half double that cemented a vital 2-0 win at Selhurst Park on Saturday.The 30-year-old now boasts five goals in ten Hull appearances since his £2million January move from Lokomotiv Moscow, and boss Bruce hopes he can now fire Hull to top-flight safety.“He usually scores in batches, so he usually gets three or four goals in as many weeks, so let’s hope that happens again now,” said Bruce.“This will give him the confidence that every striker needs.“He’s done terrific since he’s walked through the door in January.“Jelavic has only played 50 per cent of the games through his knee injury.“You’re only as good as what you put up front.“Every team is well-drilled, well-organised, so you’ve got to take the chances when they come.”Hull still face Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United, with the clash against Burnley the only stand out fixture for the Tigers, in a daunting five-game run-in.last_img read more

Celtic line up v Malmo: Change made by Deila for huge away leg?

first_img 8. Scott Brown (midfield) 11 Celtic are just one game away from reaching the Champions League group stage.They just have to navigate their way past Malmo where they take a 3-2 first leg lead to Sweden.VIDEO: CELTIC FANS DOING THE HUDDLE V MALMODefender Mikael Lustig is a doubt, so 19-year-old Saidy Janko may start if the Swede is unfit.“We’ll give [Lustig] right up to the last minute to see if he can make it. I think it’s safe to say he’s 50-50,” Celtic assistant manager John Collins said.Considering Celtic need to be defensively sound, Charlie Mulgrew, rather than the attacking Emilio Izaguirre, may begin on the left after the latter played the full 90 minutes in the 3-1 Scottish Premiership win against Dundee United where a number of key players were rested.Scotland international Mulgrew has been talking about how the group stage of the Champions League is what the team been pushing towards.“The mood is positive,” he said. “The game at home didn’t end how we wanted it in the last 10 minutes but at the end of the day we won the game and we need to stay positive.”However, Mulgrew could just as easily slot into the centre of defence, with Dedryck Boyata moving to the right as Janko also played the entire game on the weekend.Up front, Celtic will fancy themselves to score and Leigh Griffiths is likely to lead the line following his two goals at Celtic Park last week and one against United on Saturday where he played 68 minutes. 11 11 11 11 20.

Brand SA/Sowetan Dialogues urge African unity

first_imgThe most recent Brand South Africa/Sowetan Dialogues event urged South Africans to recognise the role other Africans played in the nation’s struggle for freedomParticipants at the recent Brand South Africa/Sowetan Dialogues expressed the popular sentiment that South Africans should remember the important role other African countries played in the country’s liberation, and keep it in mind when meeting other Africans.The participants were attending the dialogues in Durban at the Stamford Hill Bowling Club on 29 May 2014.The Brand South Africa/Sowetan Dialogues aim to provide a platform for communities to engage with key opinion leaders on important issues – as outlined in the National Development Plan (NDP) – that affect South Africa.The dialogues aim to encourage community members to play their part in driving social, developmental and economic change in their communities through active citizenship.The 29 May dialogue questioned whether South Africans practised Ubuntu with their fellow Africans.Panellists included: Mzwakhe Ndlela, a former Umkhonto we Sizwe soldier and author of The Fallen: Honouring the Unsung Heroes and Heroines of the Liberation Struggle; Stanley Rwandarugali, a Rwandan refugee and programme manager for the Rwandan Genocide Dialogues in Durban; Musa Mdluli, chairman at Khuphuka Investment Holdings and a PhD student at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN); and Play Your Part Ambassador Brian Mpono, director of biofuels company Khwezi Oils.Alex Mthiyane, Gagasi FM radio personality, facilitated the dialogue, which included students from KwaZulu-Natal higher education institutions, professors and members of the community.ALL AFRICANS FOUGHT APARTHEIDThe panellists all described positive experiences in African countries.Mdluli painted an emotional picture of the journey to freedom for South Africa, talking about the “bloodshed that all of Africa went through to get South Africa liberated”.“African countries assisted with travel documents for our leaders to travel out of Africa. Many families housed and took care of our struggle icons,” Mdluli said.He added that many Africans had been caught in the crossfire between South African anti-apartheid activists and the government, and that, “We must not fight our African brothers. As we celebrate 20 years of democracy we need to find ways to help our African brothers whose countries are still fighting the struggle.”Ndlela, whose book chronicles heroes who are not documented, said: “We should tell the youth and kids about the struggle so that they know where we come from. We should teach them of the struggle history of Africa and make sure they guard our freedom with jealousy.“Our freedom was paid for by many an African, not just South Africans, so we should never undermine our brothers and sisters.”SOUTH AFRICA A HOME FOR MANY AFRICANSRwandarugali, who has lived in South Africa for almost 20 years, said he would probably still be living in Rwanda but for the 1994 genocide.“I came here as a refugee because of the violence in Rwanda and this country took me in. I started as a car guard at the Durban beach front and today I’m a part-time lecturer at UKZN,” he said.Rwandarugali urged South Africans to see other Africans not as unwelcome foreigners, but as “brothers and sisters … because if we look at our histories it will show how our tribes as Africans are intertwined”.The dialogue’s overall message was that South Africans should foster good relations with Africans immigrating into the country.last_img read more
