Tommy Oar is one step closer to playing in the UEFA Champions League while there was late drama involving Bailey Wright’s Bristol City in the Championship this morning (Wed).
APOEL DREAMING OF UCL
Tommy Oar’s Cypriot club APOEL are on the brink of qualifying for the group stage of this season’s Champions League after an impressive 2-0 win at home in the first leg of their qualifying tie.
Two goals inside the first 10 minutes was enough for APOEL to beat Slavia Prague 2-0 to take a healthy advantage to the Czech Republic next week.
Oar started for the home side, playing 52 minutes before he was replaced.
If they progress, APOEL will go into the main draw for this season’s Champions League and could face the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
LATE DRAMA FOR BRISTOL CITY
Bailey Wright’s Bristol City bounced back from defeat over the weekend to come away with a 2-2 draw at Brentford.
But the Robins left it late to snatch a point with the in-form Bobby Reid equalising for the visitors in the eighth minute of stoppage-time.
Skipper Wright got through another 90 minutes for City to ensure he’ll be in good nick for the Caltex Socceroos’ upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
MEREDITH’S SEVEN-GOAL THRILLER
Left-back James Meredith was involved in a pulsating clash at The Den, but his Millwall side went down 4-3 against Ipswich Town.
Meredith was involved in the thick of the action, picking up a yellow card for a strong challenge in the first half before he was eventually replaced with 15 minutes to go.
The defeat means the Lions are still searching for their first win since their promotion to the Championship.
