Reggae Boyz Cummings, McCleary score

first_imgJamaican international and Millwall full back Shaun Cummings netted his first goal for the club he joined in January on a two and a half year deal, scoring a fortuitous second goal in a 4-0 win over Southend United in the English League One on Monday.The former Chelsea trainee was called up to a provisional Reggae Boyz squad for a few World Cup qualifiers in 2013, but after a couple appearances, has not featured since.The win for his club on Saturday was a big boost to their chances of securing a play-off berth, as it left them in ninth place with 34 points from 23 games.This leaves them three points off a play-off spot, occupied by Saturday’s opponent, Southend, and 14 points behind leaders Walsall.Cummings’ goal came in the 35th minute, eight minutes after Joe Martin put them ahead. The marauding right back sent in a deep cross, which deceived Southend’s goalkeeper, Daniel Bentley, hitting the post and then the custodian before rebounding into the goal.Fred Onyedimna and Aiden O’brian were the other scorers for Millwall, who ended Southend’s eight match unbeaten run and registered their first win in four games.Meanwhile, in the English League Championship, Reggae Boyz winger Gareth McCleary scored the lone goal in Reading’s 1-2 defeat to Brentford.His Jamaican teammate and defender, Michael Hector, saw red in that game after he was yellow-carded in the 12th and the 87th minutes.Reading are 12th in the standings with 30 points from 24 games and are seven points adrift of a play-off spot, which is currently being held by sixth-place Ipswich with 37 points.last_img read more
