5:24pm

That's it from Rockliffe Hall for today, should be a great finale tomorrow. Monasterio has a comfortable lead but it could all still happen, particularly if Mr Woosnam can repeat his heroics from today.

5:23pm

Brilliant display from Cesar Monasterio today and he had a man from Castle Eden on his bag ...

5:04pm

Wimbledon 1 Hartlepool 2

First win of the season for Pools - hard working and two goals both created by Brobbel. Pools off and running.

4:55pm

Middlesbrough 2 Sheffield Wednesday 3

4:54pm

Middlesbrough 2 Sheffield Wednesday 3

Fair to say the Riverside has woken up now - Leadbitter converts the spot kick after Glenn Loovens handled in the area, while Adomah's fizzed ball across the box was just behind Kike and Leadbitter, while Williams could not get the touch.

4:51pm

Middlesbrough 2 (Leadbitter, pen, 92) Sheffield Wednesday 3

4:51pm

Another penalty to Boro, handball in the area now.

4:49pm

Monasterio has gone one better than Woosnam. He has equalled the course record by birdying the last to finish with a 63, nine-under. Brilliant from the Argentine.

Birdied all four of the par fives.

4:49pm

Wimbledon 1 Hartlepool 2

Long last two mins to come for Pools - got the lead,  under pressure. Richards on for impressive Wyke. 

4:38pm

Wimbledon 1 Hartlepool 2

Superb penalty save from Flinders to keep the advantage. 

Miller fouled Tubbs in the area. Tubbs took it, smashed it to his left, but Flinders went full stretch to save. 

4:35pm

Now Monasterio has moved to 11 under. He is on the 18th tee after birdying the 17th to put him on eight-under for the day. That is the same as Woosnam at the same stage, so if the Argentine can birdie the last he will equal Tinning's course record.

4:32pm

Middlesbrough 1 (Leadbitter 72) Sheffield Wednesday 3

4:32pm

Penalty to Boro

4:31pm

Wimbledon 1 Hartlepool 2 

Pools in front - Brobbel again the creator. Tore away down the right , pushed into the araa for Harewood. Back to goal, turned and scored. 

 

4:26pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 3

A little bit of a response from Boro here, Adam Reach's cross pushed over the bar by Westwood, and the Irishman getting down smartly to tip Kike's shot around the post.

4:20pm

Wimbledon 1 Hartlepool 1

Obvious to say, but this is a better Pools since the goal. It's been a while since they did score, however, there's a bit more belief in thier outlook now.

Brobbel lively, looking the part out wide. Wimbledon seem a bit nervy, which wasn't the case in the first half. 

4:18pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 3

Bad to worse for Boro as Nuhiu heads home his second of the afternoon, this time from a free-kick into the box.

4:17pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 3

4:15pm

It's all happening, Drummond has birdied the last to join Monasterio at the last on nine-under with an impressive 65.

But then Monasterio responds with a birdie at 16 to then reclaim the lead at ten under.

4:09pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 2

Fair play to Aitor Karanka for recognising the threat Wednesday possess in attack and changing his side's shape to accommodate them. They're chasing the game now, Clayton will give them a bit of presence in the centre.

4:08pm

Wimbledon 1 Hartlepool 1

 Wyke, seconds into the second half, heads in Pools first goal of the season. 

Free kick from Brobbel, looped up in the area, keeper was blocked out and Wyke was able to head in from inside the 6 yard box. 

4:06pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 2

Adam Clayton comes on to replace Damia Abella as Boro go three at the back.

3:55pm

It's really shaping up nicely at Rockliffe. Monasterio is leading and is two shots clear of Ross Drummond, while Ian Woosnam is on a three-man group including Jose Manuel Carriles and Barry Lane on six-under.

Santiago Luna, Jamie Spence and Mark James are all sitting on five-under. Monasterio and Drummond are still out on the course.

3:49pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 2

3:48pm

Wimbledon 1 Hartlepool 0

Same story for Pools - another half without a goal, and a goal conceded they should have cut out. 

3:43pm

Eaglescliffe's Graeme Bell has finished with a one-over, 73. So he is one-over for the tournament going in to the final round. 

3:42pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 2 (May 42)

Worse for Boro now as Stevie May clips over the advancing Mejias. Wednesday the clinical side here.

3:34pm

3:33pm

Wimbledon v Hartlepool 

Pools on the back foot and forced to defend for the most. Wyke, up front, is working hard. 

Got to say, and it's been well documened this season, but that Akinfenwa fella up front is huge.

And I mean HUGE.

3:31pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

Wednesday have got a man over in attack whenever they go forward, neither Whitehead nor Leadbitter are dropping in - putting Ayala and Omeruo under great pressure.

3:25pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

Wednesday have hit the post - Mejias tapped May's shot on to the woodwork after Maghoma's neat run and pass.

3:21pm

3:17pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

Grant Leadbitter hits the crossbar with a whipped free-kick. Boro looking a bit brighter now after their poor start.

3:16pm

Cesar Monasterio has birdied the 12th to move three shots clear of Woosnam. The South American is now six under for today and, if things stay as they are, that will be some final pairing on Sunday.

3:14pm

AFC Wimbledon v Hartlepool

Ten mins in, Pools one down. Ball clipped  into Matt Tubbs just inside the penalty area, but he's left alone by both Matthew Bates and Sam Collins, picked his spot and rolled in. 

3:09pm

Middlesbrough 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

Wednesday go 1-0 up in the sixth minute as Atdhe Nuhiu bundles over the line. Tomas Mejias fails to clear the cross while there were four men on the line seemingly unable to clear it. Shocking stuff.

Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday fans have travelled well to the Riverside, they take up a sizeable portion of the away end in the East Stand. Good club, good fans.

2:55pm

Brilliant from Woosnam. He was understandbly in a great mood too. Here's what he had to say before dishing out golf balls to a few kids and signing autographs.

2:48pm

AFC Wimbledon v Hartlepool 

Lots of consernation and talk pre match about Luke James. We are told by the club's press officer that Colin Cooper will talk about the situation after the game.

The club has responded to a number of points raised on a supporters messageboard here: 

www.pooliebunker.co.uk/newbunker/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=54201&start=60

Anyway, without James today, there's a few changes. 

AFC WIMBLEDON: Shea; Fuller, Bennett, Barrett, Kennedy; Frankcomb, Bulman, Moore, Rigg; Akinfenwa, Tubbs. Subs: Worner (gk), Phillips, Nicholson, Pell, Harrison, Sainte-Luce, Azeez. 

HARTLEPOOL UNITED: Flinders; Duckworth, Bates, Collins, Austin; Franks, Walker, Miller, Brobbel; Wyke, Harewood. Subs: Holden, Compton, Woods, Richards, Smith, Harrison, Barber (gk)

2:43pm

Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday

Patrick Bamford is off watching Nottingham Forest play today while he mulls over a move to - among many - Middlesbrough. I'd be pulling the plug on it if I was Aitor, personally.

2:36pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

Plenty of possession and chances for Newcastle, but they are held at Villa Park.

2:33pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

Mike Williamson sent off for a second yellow card after bringing down Delph. Steven Taylor on.

De Jong missed a great chance earlier after combining with Perez. Still goalless.

2:29pm

Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday

Here's the full teams with substitutes for your reading pleasure.

For Wednesday, one change from Tuesday as Coke comes in for Hutchinson.

MIDDLESBROUGH (4-2-3-1): Mejias; Damia, Ayala, Omeruo, Friend; Whitehead, Leadbitter; Adomah, Tomlin, Reach; Kike. Subs: Konstantopoulos, Clayton, Williams, Hines, Husband, Nsue, Fewster.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY (4-4-2): Westwood; Palmer, Loovens, Lee, Mattock; Coke, Maghoma, Maguire, Semedo; May, Nuhiu. Subs: Kirkland, McCabe, Helan, Zayatte, Corry, Floro, Madine.

2:22pm

Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday

Arrived at the Riverside bathed in sunshine. Feels like the first game of the season. Except I've brought a coat. Completely useless. What am I going to do with it?!

Team news is in. For Boro, Dean Whitehead and Dani Ayala replace Adam Clayton and Seb Hines respectively. Other than that, it's as you were.

MIDDLESBROUGH (4-2-3-1): Mejias; Damia, Ayala, Omeruo, Friend; Whitehead, Leadbitter; Adomah, Tomlin, Reach; Kike.

2:18pm

Wimbledon v Hartlepool 

Confirmed - as expected - there's no Luke James for Hartlepool United today. Not at the Cherry Red Records Stadium. 

2:11pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

Siem de Jong is on for Vurnon Anita. Meanwhile, Roy Keane has just hurled a water bottle at Paul Lambert's you know what after reacting angrily to a decision.

1:58pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

Remy Cabella is having another difficult afternoon. He's been brushed off the ball quite a few times and is now being booed by the home fans for constantly going down under pressure. 

Newcastle have had two goos chances since the restart. Daryl Janmaat's header was tipped over by Guzan before his curling effort sailed just wide.

1:48pm

1:31pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

Pardew's side have had most of the ball, but it hasn;t quite worked in the final third. Villa look dangerous on the counter and have had a lot of joy down the left.

 

1:23pm

Woosnam has birdied 15, 16 and 17 to move to claim a share of the lead with Cesar Monasterio as he heads up the 18th. 

He is on track for a 64, eight-under, but if he can somehow muster another birdie then he will have equalled Steen Tinning's course record from last year.

1:15pm

Matfen Hall's John Harrison has also enjoyed a much better day. After Friday's five over, he has climbed back to level par with a stunning 67.

He posted a bogey free round which included five birdies to give him a chance of a decent finish going in to Sunday's final round.

1:14pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

Both teams pressing. Cabella's snatched shot went wide after good move involving Janmaat and Gouffran, before Andreas Weimann's shot was blocked by Williamson.

1:05pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

CHANCE! N'Zogbia free-kick flies inches wide. Applause around Villa Park in memory of Liam Sweeney and John Alder in the 17th minute

12:59pm

Aston Villa 0 Newcastle 0

The visitors have started well, but Villa look dangerous on the counter. A Cabella corner was flicked on at the near post by Williamson, but Gouffran misses the ball at the far post.

Former Newcastle winger Charles N'Zogbia has gone closest for the hosts with a looping header that landed on the roof of the net.

 

12:57pm

The Advertiser Series: Sam Torrance

12:53pm

The Advertiser Series: Woosnam is a shot off leader Cesar Monasterio, who is the outright leader after Jamie Spence double bogeyed the third to drop down to three-under.

Roger Roper is the first North-East golfer back in the clubhouse. The Rockliffe Hall pro made a huge improvement on yesterday's opening 77 to turn in a one-unnder 71 today.

He is far more relaxed about his round today, chatting and smiling in the clubhouse and he sits on four-over for the tournament. 

12:40pm

The Advertiser Series:

Ian Woosnam on the ninth, which is his only bogey so far on day two.

Brilliant round so far from Ian Woosnam. He has just made his sixth birdie of the day and just one dropped shot at the ninth to move to tied third at Rockliffe Hall.

Woosnam's only dropped shot arrived on the same hole as Echo snapper Chris Booth was asked to silence his camera by the Welshman. Boothy is certainly being targeted by the big boys ...

12:11pm

12:09pm

Aston Villa v Newcastle United

ALAN Pardew has named an unchanged team for Newcastle United’s lunchtime kick-off at Aston Villa.

Siem de Jong is fit after recovering from a calf injury, but the former Ajax man starts on the bench with Pardew naming the same line-up that lost to Manchester City on the opening weekend.

Aston Villa are also unchanged from their win at Stoke City with former Magpie Charles N’Zogbia starting alongside Gabby Agbonlahor and Andreas Weimann.

Aston Villa: Guzan; Hutton, Vlaar, Senderos, Cissokho; Richardson, Delph, Westwood; Weimann, Agbonlahor, N’Zogbia.

Subs: Given, Baker, Bacuna, Cole, Bent, Sanchez, Grealish.

Newcastle United: Krul; Janmaat, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett; Anita, Colback; Sissoko, Cabella, Gouffran; Riviere.

11:45am

11:41am

Just found out that the biggest mover of the day so far at Rockliffe, Jean-Pierre Sallat, is a former professional footballer. Used to play for Bordeaux and Le Havre, now he is on the Senior Tour and has five top ten finishes behind him. 

11:41am

11:40am

Aston Villa v Newcastle

Welcome to Villa Park for today's early kick-off in the Premier League. Newcastle have arrived and team news is imminent. Alan Pardew's side have won on their last two trips to Aston Villa, can they make it three?

Happy Saturday Everyone!

11:23am

Sam Torrance has got his second round underway, he was not in the best of moods yesterday ... especially when Echo snapper Chris Booth was still taking photos of him on the ninth. "You got enough of me yet?" he said. "You must have enough for an album."

http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/sport/11428897.English_Senior_Open__Torrance_still_finds_room_for_a_joke_after_frustrating_opening_round/

11:15am

Jean-Pierre Sallat and Ian Woosnam are the main movers this morning at Rockliffe. Both are on two-under, three adrift of leader Jamie Spence.

Sallat, a Frenchman, has birdied five of the first nine holes to hit the turn in 31 in incredible fashion.

Eaglescliffe’s Graeme Bell is level par after three alongside reigning champion Steen Tinning. Hurworth’s Roger Roper and Matfen Hall’s John Harrison are three under for the day.

10:48am

10:48am

10:46am

10:44am

There has been a light shower but the action is underway at Rockliffe Hall and Ian Woosnam is motoring his way up the field. 

The former US Masters champion has gone four under through the opening six holes to climb right in to the contention before the leaders go out at lunch-time.
