Bermuda English Footballers Update


Nahki Wells was an unused substitute as his teammate Johann Berg Gudmundsson struck a late equaliser as Burnley grabbed a 1-1 draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City at Turf Moor.

Danilo had looked like proving an unlikely matchwinner for Pep Guardiola's side with a fine strike after 22 minutes of an otherwise frustrating day for City.

But after Raheem Sterling spurned a gilt-edged chance to put the game beyond doubt, the Clarets grew in confidence and earned their reward when Gudmundsson turned in Matt Lowton's deep cross.

City will rue their failure to make the most of their openings, with Sterling's opportunity one of a number to pass them by.

Burnley, for their part, were well organised throughout and they had already hit the woodwork through Aaron Lennon before their equaliser came.

Despite the wealth of talent in City's ranks, they also arrived short of numbers. David Silva became their latest injury victim in midweek and John Stones was again absent, having been ill recently, and so Guardiola named only six substitutes.

With record signing Amyeric Laporte on the bench, Vincent Kompany returned to the starting lineup and the City captain was soon in the thick of the action, clashing with both Ashley Barnes and Sam Vokes.


Marcus Bean's first goal for Wycombe snatched the most astonishing of victories for the 10-man home team, as two stoppage-time goals saw them defeat Carlisle 4-3 at Adams Park.

Reggie Lambe was an unused substitute for Carlisle United.

Wycombe struck twice in three minutes to lead 2-0 after 31 minutes, as Matt Bloomfield's scuffed opener was quickly followed by Luke O'Nien's goal.

But the mood changed early in the second half when Kris Twardek's shot hit the arm of O'Nien on the line and after the midfielder was sent off, Danny Grainger stuck away the resulting penalty.

The hosts were then awarded a penalty of their own when Jack Bonham took out Nathan Tyson, but the goalkeeper redeemed himself by saving Joe Jacobson's spot-kick.

It looked to be crucial, as Carlisle turned the game on its head. Jamie Devitt's equalizing header from James Brown's cross was followed by Cole Stockton's goal from Brown's free-kick.

But there was an incredible twist late on as Paris Cowan-Hall's diving header levelled the match before Bean's brilliant volley into the bottom corner sent the Wycombe faithful home happy.
