Bermuda English Footballers Round Up


Huddersfield striker Nahki Wells curled home a brilliant free-kick in the fourth minute of stoppage time to rescue a point against struggling Blackburn.

It had looked like Blackburn would claim all three points after absorbing plenty of pressure from the home side, but had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

The visitors came to thwart and frustrate and when David Wagner's side failed to take their chances, Rovers struck through Danny Graham nine minutes from time.

But Huddersfield, on the back of four successive victories, refused to give up and levelled deep into stoppage time through Wells.

Huddersfield dominated the first half and, with Blackburn notorious slow starters, almost took the lead inside the first minute.

Rovers goalkeeper Jason Steele pulled off a great double save, blocking Rajiv van La Parra's effort before turning away a well-executed overhead kick from Kasey Palmer.

Centre-back Michael Hefele's header was well wide from Aaron Mooy's driven cross and van La Parra whipped a ball in for Wells but his flick header lacked power and was easy for Steele.


Reggie Lambe’s teammate Jason Kennedy snatched victory for Carlisle as Keith Curle's side secured a thrilling 3-2 win at Notts County and maintained their promotion push in Sky Bet League Two.

County had made a bright start, but it was the visitors who took the lead when Charlie Wyke headed in from close range after Notts failed to deal with a Nicky Adams corner.

Michael Raynes went close to adding a second, but Notts levelled on the half-hour mark when Jon Stead produced a brilliant header from Michael O'Connor's free-kick.

Notts then made it 2-1 when Jonathan Forte dispossessed a dithering Shaun Brisley before firing beyond Mark Gillespie via the inside of the post six minutes before the break.

But in an entertaining first half, Carlisle equalized when Adams was afforded too much space on the left and his cross was headed in emphatically by an unchallenged Jabo Ibehre.

Both sides went in search of a decisive third goal and it was Carlisle who almost made the breakthrough when Ibehre forced a stunning save from Scott Loach.

Notts had their moments too and Rob Milsom should have done better when he was unmarked at the back post, but he tamely volleyed into the ground and into the arms of Gillespie.

It was then left to Kennedy to snatch the decisive goal when he flicked in Tom Miller's long throw to leave Notts County nervously looking over their shoulders.
