LONDON -- A second half strike by Kris Commons gave Celtic a 1-0 victory over Elfsborg, while Fenerbahce needed an injury-time penalty to draw 1-1 in its first leg match at Salzburg in the third round of Champions League qualifying on Wednesday. After a balanced first half, Celtic had more possession in the second and made the breakthrough when Commons headed home a cross from Emilio Izaguirre in the 76th minute. "They made it difficult for us to break them down but it was not frustrating, it was understandable," Celtic coach Neil Lennon said. "We werent at our best, but that was always going to be the case. There is still a bit of rust there." Looking ahead to next weeks second leg in Sweden, he added: "The tie is probably in the balance, but we are confident that we can go there and get a result." Salzburg also looked to have won after Alans 68th minute strike, only for the Turkish side to be awarded a spot-kick in the fifth minute of stoppage time -- converted by fellow Brazilian, Cristian. There were 1-1 draws too for Molde against Legia Warsaw and APOEL vs. Maribor, while Ludogorets beat Partizan 2-1. Tuesdays matches saw victories for the bigger clubs involved in this stage of the competition with PSV Eindhoven beating Zulte Waregem 2-0, Steaua Bucharest defeating Dinamo Tbilisi by the same scoreline and 1-0 wins for Lyon against Grasshoppers and Basel against Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days.

YORK -- Ronnie OSullivan says snooker should concentrate on the games very best players as many professionals competing in the top events are never going to be good enough.The 40-year-old believes the current format of 128-player tournaments is anarchy and preventing investment from China.It is not the first time OSullivan has spoken out this week. World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn rebuked the five-time world champion for recent comments in comparing the sport to a car boot sale, while Shaun Murphy said OSullivan should concentrate on his game.On Wednesday, OSullivan saw off Matthew Stevens 6-2 to reach the quarterfinals of the UK Championship in York.He then used his post-match interview to offer further insight into ways he felt snooker could move forwards and embrace lucrative overseas sponsorship deals.China is where it is at. The money is there, they are ready to pump it in to snooker, they just dont want 128 players, OSullivan told BBC Sport.It is anarchy when you go over there. You watch it and it is just too many players, too many people. They want the cream of the cream -- and that is the top 32.OSullivan feels a trimmed-down version of the tour focusing on the elite players is the way forward.I always believe in more quality over quantity. That has always been my philosophy in everything I do, he said.I think we have a lot of quantity, but very few quality events, so maybe skim them down a bit and just make them all real proper setups.Maybe the tour is only strong enough at the moment to cater for 64 players to do that.That is probably where I think snooker could be improved, with probably more prestigious events like the Masters, the one they have just had in Guangzhou [China Championship], a little bit like the tennis with the ATP [World Tour Finals], where you just have your top eight.Because it is a slog, a lot of players come in at round one, and that is wheree [snooker] could probably change its perception.ddddddddddddy argument is there should be more for the top players.I am a top player, I am not going to be a top player forever, but I always believed the top players should be rewarded and have more classy events to play in and should be treated differently.I believe the top 16, top 32, should be having better opportunities rather than keep coming into round one, playing a lot of events which dont carry great quality, but that is my personal opinion. I think you need to look after your top players.It is nothing against the other tournaments. I know what people in China think, they just want the top players there. They dont really want 128 players.OSullivan believes many of the players currently involved in the tour are never going to get anywhere.He said: If you are good enough, you will get to the top, but otherwise you have got the tail wagging the dog in a way.You are supporting the bottom ones when really no-one knows them, they are never going to get anywhere, but you are just having to kind of [go on].OSullivan added: This [128-player set-up] is like an amateur and a pro [sport] all in one, and it is just not going to work.There are a lot of players I watch out there, and they cant play. It is as simple as that, and that is no disrespect, they are never going to be good enough.Following his win in York, OSullivan will next take on either Liam Highfield or Mark Williams in Fridays quarterfinals.In Wednesdays other fourth-round contest, Murphy beat Chinas Zhou Yuelong 6-2, scoring two centuries as he won the last four frames. There was little drama in the evening session, where Marco Fu thrashed Oli Lines 6-0 and world No. 1 Mark Selby saw off Zhang Anda 6-1.PA Sport contributed to this report. ' ' '
