The power went out at Old Trafford yesterday for fourty-five minutes but that only delayed the slaughter. Manchester United under power of the tandrum of Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke came out and beat Shaka Hislop and West Ham 4-1.

Dwight Yorke opened the scoring in the tenth minute from a Cole cross to register his 13th goal of the season. Yorke returned the favour later on when he found Cole minutes before the end of the first half. Manchester United continued the onslaught in the second half with two goals. West Ham got a consolation goal one minute from time.

The win moves them into third place with 38 points behind co-leaders Chelsea and Aston Villa who have 40 points.

Rougier gets first start.

Tony Rougier started his first game for his new club Port Vale on Saturday. Despite not being match fit Rougier still caused problems for Birmigham. However, Port Vale still slipped further into relegation danger with a 1-0 lost.

Latapy and Hibs steam on.

Russell Latapy amd Hibernian continue to rumble over the opposition in the Scottish First division. Latapy and Hibs completed a 2-1 win over St. Mirren. The win pushed them to 53 points. Latapy provided a pass that sent Hibernian up 2-0.

Latapy got some help from fellow Trinidadian compatriot Marvin Andrews. Andrews was named as co-man of the match when Raith Rovers defeated second placed Falkrick 2-1. Andrews earned a rare start for Raith and impressed with his play at the back.
