'We want to be the first all-disabled team to enter Le Mans'

A team of disabled racing drivers - aiming to be the first ever all-disabled team to enter the Le Mans 24 hour race, have been training at the Brands Hatch race track.

The majority of the drivers are ex military veterans or serving military personnel who have sustained serious injuries. The team's advanced hand controls allow its drivers to compete on equal terms with able-bodied drivers, as Sarah Saunders reports.

Mid-table Portsmouth "a work in progress", says manager

Portsmouth Manager, Kenny Jackett, says the mid-table position of his side in League One is fair, admitting they are currently a "work in progress".

Pompey will be looking to return to winning ways at home to Bradford tomorrow following back to back defeats to Blackburn and Doncaster.

Bradford, 'The Bantams', reached the play-off final last season and Jackett says the game will be a good test for his side, who were promoted from League Two in April.

Jackett also confirmed goalkeeper, Luke McGee, will be fit for Saturday's match.

It was feared he would miss out due to injury, with only young back-up Alex Bass in reserve, but the former Millwall boss says McGee is available for selection.

No update on Gills' managerial vacancy, says caretaker

Gillingham caretaker manager, Steve Lovell, says there is "no update" on the managerial situation at the club.

Lovell took over the role on an interim basis last month after Ady Pennock's sacking, then Peter Taylor's departure from the club, and has presided over a win, draw and defeat in that time.

The Welshman has admitted he has had no discussions with the chairman over his future as yet.

But the former forward, who made more than 200 appearances for the Gills as a player, has made it clear he wants the manager's job on a full-time basis.

The League One side travel to fifth place Rotherham tomorrow off the back of a damaging defeat at home to fellow strugglers Northampton last time out.

But Lovell says his team can take confidence from their recent performances, particularly their home draw against high flying Wigan earlier this month.

No pressure on promotion push, says Oxford United Manager

Oxford United's Manager says there is "no pressure" on his side to mount a promotion challenge this season.

Pep Clotet, who replaced Michael Appleton as boss in July, has seen his side move up to seventh place in League One in recent weeks and they are only outside the play-off places on goal difference.

But the Spaniard insists, after a summer of change, some perspective is needed.

The U's travel to Fleetwood tomorrow, a team who made the play-offs last term, and Clotet says winning at Highbury Stadium would represent a "huge step forward".

"It's going to be very tough. Uwe Rosler's (Fleetwood Manager) teams are very well organised, really hard working. They do the right things, try to avoid making mistakes and wait for the moment in the game. They are good going forward as well.

"It's going to be a huge challenge when it comes to keeping the right focus, intensity and mentality to stay in the game. It's going to be 90 minutes of really hard work out there."

Stam "not satisfied" with recent Reading performances

Reading manager, Jaap Stam, has admitted to ITV News Meridian he is "not satisfied" with how his team have performed in recent weeks.

The Royals currently lie in 20th position in the Championship - two points outside the relegation zone - having just missed out on a place in the Premier League last term.

But Stam, whose side host Middlesbrough tomorrow, believes certain factors have conspired against them so far.

"Certain performances weren't good enough. Certain performances, we played well, but didn't get the result that we deserved but that's how it goes in football. We haven't been lucky with the squad to be honest, with the injuries that we're having at the moment.

All these things at the moment doesn't make it where we want to go."

Reading have lost six of their 12 league matches so far, a run of form which has seen Stam's position as manager come under scrutiny.

But the Dutchman would not be drawn on his future, other than telling our reporter Mark McQuillan he is "up for the fight" ahead.
