Soccer - Mel places emphasis on keeping clean sheet West Bromwich Albion head coach Pepe Mel has demanded an improved defensive display from his side in the vital relegation six-pointer against Cardiff City at The Hawthorns. The Baggies have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last ten Premier League games and are just three points above the bottom three. Mel said: "The way we're approaching the game is to be defensively strong. We've been conceding some very early goals and that means we have to put a lot of effort in. "We're very capable of creating scoring opportunities and we're convinced, if we don't concede, we'll be able to win the game." Albion are available at 11/8 with bet365 to keep a clean sheet on Saturday and can be backed at 13/2 to beat Cardiff 1-0.

Soccer - Bruce fears the worst for McGregor

Allan McGregor's season appears to be over after the Hull City goalkeeper damaged a kidney in the 2-1 defeat at West Ham United. Tigers boss Steve Bruce has confirmed that the former Rangers shot-stopper is still in hospital after suffering the injury on Wednesday in a collision with Mohamed Diame - an incident which resulted in the Hammers being awarded a penalty and McGregor being sent off. Second-choice keeper Steve Harper is in line to start this weekend's match against Stoke City and Hull can be backed at 12/5 with bet365 to keep a clean sheet against the Potters. Shane Long is available at 3/1 to score at any time in the match. Bruce said: "It certainly looks like he's going to miss the rest of the season. "Allan is as brave as they come but he's taken a horrible knock to his kidneys and badly damaged one of them. We expect Allan to stay in hospital for at least another week."
