Football - Ainsworth: Late goal was kick in the teeth

Wycombe player/boss Gareth Ainsworth felt deflated after Accrington's last-gasp winner inflicted a 1-0 defeat at Adams Park.

Lee Molyneux snatched victory for the visitors in the third minute of stoppage time to move them five points clear of the League Two relegation zone.

What came before was instantly forgettable as both sides struggled to get into their stride on a bobbly pitch, Stuart Lewis coming closest when he hit a post.

"That late goal was an absolute kick in the teeth," Ainsworth said. "I didn't think either team deserved to win that game, but we had the better chances if I'm honest - we just couldn't stick them away.

"I think they've then had about one shot on target and they've scored with it so there wasn't great deal between the teams.

"The ball has bounced quite high off the pitch and was in the air a lot so there wasn't a great deal of quality out there.

"One little error from a set-play has cost us right at the end, but on another day we take our chances in the game, it happens.

"We just need to pick ourselves up quick because we've got a long trip up to Morecambe on Monday, but it wasn't a great game at all and had 0-0 written all over it until they smashed one in with 30 seconds to go."

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

    By Justin Palmer BIRMINGHAM (Reuters) - 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

    By Ossian Shine KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - 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.
