    It must be fun constantly making things up.

    Kettering strikers Moses Ashikodi and Jean-Paul Marna were sent-off for fighting each other as Hayes & Yeading won an eight-goal thriller.

    Marna had made it 5-3 in stoppage time when the duo came to blows.

    Hayes raced into a 3-0 lead through Tom Collins' drilled shot, a Louie Soares penalty and Pierre Joseph Dubois' header.

    Ashikodi and Adam Cunnington replied for Kettering but Hector Mackie and a second from Soares kept Hayes ahead.

    The game desceded into farce in the closing minutes. First, Ashikodi saw his penalty saved by Delroy Preddi.

    Then Marna grabbed a consolation goal before the two forwards were red carded for scrapping to complete a miserable evening for struggling Kettering

    A little more than a year after hosting a successful World Cup, South Africa woke up with a giant hangover after a failure to understand the rules saw them miss out on qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations.

    Coach Pitso Mosimane admitted he had changed tactics and played for a draw in Saturday's final qualifier at home to Sierra Leone, thinking it was enough to win the group and qualify for the 2012 finals.
    However, South Africa actually needed a win to avoid being eliminated on head-to-head results between the three teams tied at the top of the table, but no one appeared to have studied the regulations correctly.
    Despite playing out the draw, they were pipped by outsiders Niger, who qualified for the first time.
    More embarrassingly, the Bafana Bafana celebrated their supposed qualification at the end of the scoreless stalemate in Nelspruit (pictured), thinking they had done enough to advance to next year's finals co-hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
    "It's very sad for South Africa because the country deserves to be in next year's Nations Cup. I feel like I have failed," Mosimane told reporters.
    The coach, who took over after the World Cup, was under the impression that goal difference was the determining factor to decide the group winners and when he was told that leaders Niger were losing in Egypt, he changed tactics and settle for a draw.
    Niger had led South Africa by a point going into the final round of qualifiers on Saturday.
    "Do you think I would have left (striker Lehlohonolo) Majoro on the bench and put on a midfielder if I knew that we needed a goal? It doesn't make sense," Mosimane said, before criticising the regulations.
    "Africa is a jungle, my friend," Mosimane added. "The European and South American formats are so much better because everything is running smoothly, but it's very difficult to play in Africa".
    However, Mosimane was not the only one to fall foul of a misreading of the rules.
    The state-run African Broadcasting Corporation proclaimed qualification and the South African Football Association president Kirsten Nematandani even went on television to congratulate the team.

    Football chiefs are investigating an official racism complaint about Liverpool star Craig Bellamy after he was called a ‘sheep-*****’ during a game.
    Let's Kick Racism Out and the FA have launched inquiries.

    The Wales and Liverpool striker was allegedly the victim of 'inhuman, degrading and vile' taunts by rival fans.
    Bellamy was targeted by fans of Brighton when Liverpool played them in the Carling Cup last month. Liverpool won the tie 2-1, with Bellamy scoring the opening goal for the Premiership side.

    So, Sheep-shagging is automatically associated with the Welsh is it? and not just an alleged proclivity of that horrible cunt Bellamy, who knew?
