Football - Adomah ready to be versatile

Bristol City winger Albert Adomah says he will play anywhere if it helps the Robins survival bid.

The Ghanian, who had been an impact substitute in recent week, scored a stunning open goal in a central role behind the striker in their 2-0 win over Middlesbrough last weekend.

And ahead of the trip to fellow strugglers Wolves the 25-year-old explained that he has been working on the new position ahead of the clash.

"I think the manager wants me to play behind the striker if I am involved," he told Press Association Sport. "I am working on that role in training and hopefully if we keep playing that way and if I'm involved I'll keep improving as well and getting used to it.

"I am more used to playing out wide, it is something different. If I am called up to play on the wing I can do that, or right-back, or in goal or on the bench - I'll do that! A the end of the day he is the boss and you just have to listen to the boss."

And that boss has focused on his side`s work ethic, their organisation and ability to win the ball back and Adomah admits that thinking may be behind his new role.

The former Barnet man said: "He knows I am a winger but at the same time I am not that disciplined, I am not embarrassed to say that, and I think maybe if I was to play out on the wing I might let the team down.

"When I play out on the wing I want to attack more and maybe that could be our downfall."

City and Wolves, 24th and 23rd in the npower Championship, are just separated by goal difference ahead of the clash at Molineux.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
