Weekend Roundup 11/29-11/30

Sorry, a dentist appointment and work kept me from getting to this until now

Kildare County drops out of the listings for now, we'll see if they return.

Queen of the South - Off while early round FA Cup games were played.

Blackburn Rovers - The Rovers started the week by losing by one goal at Portsmouth in league action, then lost by tow goals on the road at ManU in the Carling Cup Quarterfinals. The Portsmouth game saved all its action for the second half. Portsmouth grabbed two quick goals, but Rovers came straight back to tie it up. Then Portsmouth got the winning goal late. It was much the same in the Carling Cup match except that the two early goals from the opposition came in the first half. Rovers got back to within 1 before falling to a two goal defeat. With the losses Blackburn is out of the Carling Cup and in 19th place, 3 points from safety.

CD Tenerife - Tenerife hosted promotion rivals Zaragoza on Sunday. A win would put CDT on the right track towards promotion, but a loss would undo much of the benefit for the previous week's win over rival Las Palmas. Unfortunately CDT gave up a late penalty kick in the 88th minute to fall 2-1 at home. While Tenerife has improved their road record it has come at the cost of their strong play at home. With the loss CDT falls to 9th, 7 points behind the leaders.
