WEEK­END SPORT

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv -

NOT too many sleeps now be­fore the white bearded chap in the red suit makes his yearly visit. Pity he couldn’t have had a word or two with the sports pro­gram­mers who work for the free- to- air mob. What did we do for live sport at this time of the year be­fore cable television? Speak­ing of Yule­tide fes­tiv­i­ties, Syd­ney FC soc­cer coach John Kos­mina will be look­ing for an early Christ­mas present tonight with a win against the Cen­tral Coast Mariners af­ter Perth Glory ended his six- match un­beaten run in the A- League at home last week. Kick- off is set for 7pm on Fox Sports 1. The match is a pre­cur­sor to what should be an ab­so­lute cracker from the English Pre­mier League tonight when Spurs go gun­ning for Arse­nal in an all north Lon­don derby, with kick- off slated for 11.30pm on FS1. My pick for to­mor­row’s EPL ac­tion on FS2 is the Manch­ester United- Ever­ton fix­ture from 11pm. Those who have added Se­tanta Sports to their view­ing sched­ule should tune in to the Scot­tish Pre­mier League match of the round be­tween Celtic and Hiber­nian from 2am. Then, af­ter a quick nap, catch a live game of rugby union from Eng­land, with Bris­tol at home to Lon­don Wasps. Kick- off is set for 10.15am.
