Football: Celtic held by late Sutton goal

John Sutton grabbed a stoppage time equaliser as Motherwell held champions Celtic to a 3-3 draw in a thrilling game at Fir Park in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday. The home side had raced into an early lead when Efe Ambrose misjudged the flight of a lofted pass to let in Sutton to fire home a fifth minute opener.

Football: Eriksen delivers to keep Fulham in trouble

Tottenham Hotspur strengthened their push for a European place and kept Fulham trapped in the Premier League relegation zone with a 3-1 home victory on Saturday. Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell cancelled out Paulinho's 35th-minute opener for Tottenham, but second-half goals from Harry Kane and Younes Kaboul gave Tim Sherwood's side all three points. Sidwell had an opportunity to get his team back into the game with 13 minutes remaining, but after Christian Eriksen had been penalised for handball, he saw his penalty parried by Hugo Lloris.

Football: Spurs halt Fulham charge, Chelsea eye summit

Fulham squandered an opportunity to escape the Premier League relegation zone on Saturday after going down 3-1 at London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Felix Magath's improving side had won their two previous games and they reacted impressively after falling behind to a close-range Paulinho strike in the 35th minute, with Steve Sidwell equalising almost immediately. However, second-half goals from Harry Kane and Younes Kaboul secured victory for Tim Sherwood's Spurs, with Sidwell seeing a late penalty saved by Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Football: Penalty drama keeps Cardiff in trouble

Cardiff remain deep in relegation trouble despite Peter Whittingham's penalty equaliser in Saturday's 1-1 Premier League draw against Stoke. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team fell behind in controversial circumstances at the Cardiff City Stadium when referee Howard Webb gave Stoke a dubious penalty which Austrian striker Marko Arnautovic converted. The Bluebirds drew level with a penalty of their own in the second half as Whittingham fired home from the spot.

Football: Villa stop rot in Southampton stalemate

Aston Villa ended a difficult week with a 0-0 draw at home to Southampton on Saturday that inched them closer to safety in the Premier League. Villa suspended assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa earlier this week, following a run of four successive defeats that had seen Paul Lambert's side slither towards the bottom three. They snapped the sequence by avoiding defeat against an enterprising Southampton team, but they are not safe yet as the result left them only five points clear of the relegation zone with four matches to play.

Football: Vissel Kobe climb to top of J-League

Promoted side Vissel Kobe beat Kashima Antlers 3-2 on Saturday to climb into first place in the J-League for at least 24 hours. Keijiro Ogawa scored a header in the 69th minute to give Vissel the win after twice going behind to Antlers, who were reduced to 10 men when Takeshi Aoki conceded a penalty that Marquinhos converted two minutes before Ogawa's winner. Previous leaders Sanfrecce Hiroshima fell one point behind Vissel, but can reclaim the top spot with a win away to Albirex Niigata on Sunday.
