Advocaat set to ring the changes

first_img However, the Dutchman, who arrived on Wearside after a spell as manager of the Serbia national team, admitted he is relishing the challenge of guiding a squad which faltered alarmingly during the latter weeks of predecessor Gus Poyet’s reign away from trouble. He took up the reins on Tuesday and has had three days to work with his players, although he revealed few of them were strangers to him. Advocaat said: “In Holland, we can see all the games in England – everything is on television, so I knew the squad, I knew the players, plus the fact that we have a great stadium and great fans. “With the support of them, we must do it. I have a good feeling about the squad after the last three days, so why not?” The Black Cats are without a win in six league games and seven in all competitions, a run which has plunged them into a second successive survival fight. Advocaat needs all the players he can get his hands on if he is to engineer an escape, and he could have at least one more to call upon this weekend after the club lifted its suspension of winger Adam Johnson as a police investigation into an allegation of sexual activity with a girl under 16 continues. However, Advocaat declined to reveal whether or not the 27-year-old, who had been training by himself after ban was imposed, will be included in the travelling party. He said: “What I always do, I pick the squad after the final session. We still have some injuries, we don’t know exactly who will join us. “Always after the last training, I will pick the squad so it’s the same for everybody.” The 67-year-old Dutchman was unveiled at a press conference at the club’s Academy of Light training headquarters on Friday morning as he finalised preparations for his first Barclays Premier League game in charge at West Ham on Saturday. Advocaat, who inherited a team sitting just one point clear of the drop zone, said: “In principal, every thing you do in football is a challenge and you want to do as well as possible. But we are now in a situation where we are playing more or less at the bottom of the league, so something has to change.” New Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat has admitted something has to change if he is to drag the club out of relegation danger. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Calhoun was injured running out the single and was replaced by Scott Heineman.Joey Gallo had tied the game at 2 with a homer off Matt Strahm leading off the ninth, his seventh.

Among them was a grand slam on a 3-0 pitch from Juan Nicasio with the Padres leading by seven runs, reigniting arguments over baseball’s “unwritten rules.” Tatis’ slam angered the Rangers and even raised the eyebrows of Padres rookie manager Jayce Tingler, who initially wasn’t overly pleased because the 21-year-old shortstop missed a take sign before hitting his first career slam.Tingler initially called it a “learning opportunity,” but said the next day he should have used a better choice of words.After Tatis’ slam, reliever Ian Gibaut threw Machado, leading to a three-game suspension for the reliever, which was reduced to two games, and one game for manager Chris Woodward.Roughned Odor homered off Chris Paddack with one out in the second, his third.Paddack allowed one run and four hits in six innings, struck out five and walked two.Lynn gave up two runs and eight hits in seven innings, struck out six and walked none.SUSPENSIONGibaut dropped his appeal and began serving his two-game suspension. The Rangers will play with 27 players for this series.TRAINER’S ROOMRangers: SS Elvis Andrus was out of the starting lineup for the third day in a row but he did pinch run for Todd Frazier, who was hit by a pitch in the ninth, and then stayed in at shortstop. Monday was a scheduled day off but he was out Tuesday and Wednesday because of lower back stiffness.UP NEXTRangers: RHP Kyle Gibson (1-2, 3.74 ERA) is scheduled to start the series finale Thursday night. He beat the Padres in his only appearance against them, on Sept. 12, 2017, while with Minnesota.Padres: RHP Dinelson Lamet (2-1, 1.59) is set to go for the Padres.Image credits: AP LIVE TVcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE FOLLOW US Written Bylast_img read more
