Hughes: Goals will come for Potters

first_img The Potters’ solid start to the new Barclays Premier League season is still yet to entirely convince the critics, after yielding just four goals from their first five league games. But Hughes reckons the tactical revolution he has overseen at the Britannia Stadium since replacing Tony Pulis in the summer will soon pay off – starting with Sunday’s visit of struggling Norwich. Press Association Stoke boss Mark Hughes believes his side are ready to consign their reputation as long-ball merchants to history by matching the big guns in the goalscoring stakes. Hughes has a concern over midfielder Matthew Etherington, who suffered whiplash in a traffic incident on Friday morning, but hopes he will be fit enough to face the Canaries. Asmir Begovic will continue between the posts, with Hughes having given short shrift to reports in the Spanish media that both Atletico Madrid and Napoli are tracking the goalkeeper with a view to a new-year swoop. And he will be without Jack Butland, who has been sent to Barnsley for a three-month loan spell in order to give the 20-year-old England man a chance to continue his development with guaranteed first-team action. Hughes said: “I am convinced that at some point things will turn and we will score a greater amount of goals. “We are certainly creating chances and that is encouraging. I think it is only a matter of time until we really take the game to somebody and score quite a few goals.” Despite being tipped by many as relegation candidates, Hughes’ men have impressed in their opening encounters having been unfortunate not to beat Manchester City before a tough loss at Arsenal last week. And Hughes says the spirit and strength in depth of his squad was evident in the way his players picked themselves up to ease through a potentially tricky Capital One Cup clash with Tranmere in midweek. “I have good quality and good ability in many, many positions,” the Welshman said. “We have enough players here to get us through a long, hard season. There are good players who haven’t even made the bench recently, so seeing them perform well in midweek was fantastic. “We are enjoying what we are doing at the moment, playing well and looking forward to every game that comes along. Norwich will accept that it is a difficult game for them, but it won’t be easy for us either. “We’ve got a good run of fixtures coming up after the weekend so there is a chance for us to go out and show what we are capable of doing this season.” last_img read more

Investigation launched into maternal death at Diamond Hospital

first_imgA mother of four was pronounced dead at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre (the East Bank Demerara Regional Hospital) on Tuesday after carrying a dead baby inside her womb for five days.Carol Suniram34The woman, Carol Suniram, of Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara, had suffered a miscarriage on Friday and was prescribed pills by a doctor at the Diamond hospital to pass out the five-month-old foetus.Speaking with Guyana Times, the dead woman’s sister-in-law, J Singh, stated that on Friday last the 39-year-old woman was told that the baby had died inside her. “She told me that she lose the baby and that it still inside of her, so I tell her come leh we go to the hospital and get it out, but she was determined that the doctor told her to use the pills and return today (Tuesday),” the woman said.On Tuesday, Suniram went to the hospital to do the operation but died while in surgery.Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton, when contacted, stated that he was unaware of the maternal death and would be looking into the matter immediately.This newspaper was told that an investigation had been launched into the incident. The woman’s body was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital where a post-mortem would be done.Only on Monday, the Minister disclosed that Guyana’s maternal mortality rate was declining. Recently, a United Nations report disclosed that Guyana was among five countries in the Region with the highest maternal mortality rate.As of December 30, 2015, Guyana had recorded 17 cases of maternal deaths— which is one case short of the 2014 figure. This is the cause of the country missing its goal to reduce maternal deaths by three-quarters between the years 1990 and 2015. The maternal mortality ratio has decreased from 270 per cent in 1990 to 86 per cent in 2012. Therefore, in order to achieve its target, Guyana would have had to reduce its maternal mortality rate to 67.5 per cent by the end of 2015.last_img read more
