10:50 pm
included— enjoyed the mild snap, a reminder of how seriously we need to take time to change. harare reminder of how seriously we need to take time to change.— take time to change. have you got the thermals _ take time to change. have you got the thermals out? _ take time to change. have you got the thermals out? no! _ take time to change. have you got the thermals out? no! i _ take time to change. have you got the thermals out? no! i did - take time to change. have you got the thermals out? no! i did turn . the thermals out? no! i did turn on the thermals out? no! i did turn on the heating — the thermals out? no! i did turn on the heating this _ the thermals out? no! i did turn on the heating this evening. _ the thermals out? no! i did turn on the heating this evening. sonia, . the heating this evening. sonia, harried, take _ the heating this evening. sonia, harried, take you _ the heating this evening. sonia, harried, take you very _ the heating this evening. sonia, harried, take you very much. i stay in the warm and speak to us! we... have not had that benefit for several years now. newsday is coming up several years now. newsday is coming up at 11pm after sport, and i will be back at 11:30pm. good evening. this is your update from the bbc sport centre. we'll start with the football first, and manchester united lost theirfirst game under ralf rangnick. they were beaten at old trafford,
10:51 pm
too, by wolves, who left it late to score the winner and survived a late fightback by the skin of their teeth. joe lynskey reports. at manchester united, the new year felt like old times. for the first time since 2008, cristiano ronaldo was captain. and for the first time in two years, here was philjones. the former england defender�*s last first—team match was in january 2020. his job was to keep out wolves, who last won at old trafford in 1980. but here they sensed a chance... that's one of the saves of the season. david de gea was at full stretch to stop a wolves opener. united's aim this year is to climb back up the table. but even with a new coach, they're still out of sorts. bruno fernandes missed a chance you'd expect him to score, and when ronaldo did find the net, he'd mistimed his run. he's offside! no goal given. and while it was 0—0, wolves still were in it. they knew for a first win in four decades, they mightjust need one chance.
10:52 pm
moutinho! here was their portuguese veteran stealing the spotlight — not ronaldo but moutinho, wolves' 35—year—old midfielder. united would get time for one last shot but this was wolves' night. it may be the new year, but manchester united can't shake the recent gloom. joe lynskey, bbc news. united remain seventh, then, but this evening's opponents now close behind them in the table. united's boss rangnick feels the side have a lot of work to do if they're to get anything out of the season. if you look at today's performance, if i now say i'm 100% convinced that we will finish up in the top four and finish at least fourth, i don't know if people would really believe that. for me, it's about taking next steps. we need to develop, we need to get better. and even more so, against the top teams in the league, we just need to make sure that we can control the game defensively and at the same time can create chances offensively.
10:53 pm
we come here with a big personality and a strong team. so credit for my team, credit for my team, because we come here with a plan to play with the ball and we come with that ambition. big performance for our side, one goal, one more clean sheet and a fantastic game for our boys. just two out of five scheduled championship games took place today due to covid postponements. derby boss wayne rooney didn't travel to reading. he tested negative for coronavirus but had cold—like symptoms, so stayed at home as a precaution as his side salvaged a draw in injury time.
10:54 pm
reading hadn't played a competitive game for 23 days. two goals from junior hoilett had them looking good for a win with only five minutes to go. but a mistake from reading keeper luke southwood gifted derby a goal — colin kazim—richards pulled one back. and then in the 91st minute, curtis davies equalised for derby. they're still bottom but unbeaten in four and are still 11 points behind reading, who are fourth—bottom. that other game in the championship was at stoke. and despite taking the lead, their push for the play—offs has been dented after losing 2—1 to preston. andrew hughes with the winner in the last ten minutes. the fourth ashes test starts tomorrow night in sydney. england have already lost the series, and preparations have been badly hampered by a number of covid issues, with most of their coaching staff in isolation. joe root will become england's longest serving test captain when he skippers the side for a 60th time, but his leadership has been questioned after their performances so far in australia. i'll look at the future at the end of this tour. i don't think i can afford to throw any more energy into anything else than the games themselves right now.
10:55 pm
we want to give people back home something to shout about, to show how much we care about this team, how much we care about test cricket and how desperate we are to do well. and, as i say, to win out here these last two games would be a really big step forward from, especially off the back of the first three games. contrast the mood in the england camp with australia — utterly dominant in the first three tests. and batsman steve smith says they have no intention of letting up. the guys are in a really good place. we've played some really good cricket so far throughout. and we're still a young side, building together as a group, and we want to keep getting better as a team — so, whilst we've got the foot on the throat, so to speak, we want to continue the momentum and have another good week out here in sydney. hopefully the weather holds off, i'm hearing the forecast isn't great, so hopefully we can get some good cricket in and have another good week. and finally, we have found the longest run up in world cricket — day 3 of the first test between new zealand and bangladesh in mount maunganui. young charlie had plenty of support from the bay oval crowd as he ran in to bowl at his dad. keep an eye out for
10:56 pm
a potentially illegal action, but the umpires allowed it. and he got the wicket of his old man too. there we go! bit of a cutaway there into the real action, but the celebrations to continue. enjoying himself there, isn't he? good stuff. for more on all those stories and the latest from the world darts camp each of final ob had over to the bbc sport website or app, but that's all for now. hello. after what was an exceptionally mild start to the new year, we have now started to see quite a dramatic change in our weather. something much colder has been working its way in. a chilly feeling day for tuesday — snow and gales for some of us, particularly in the north of the uk. the cold airfiltering in behind this band of cloud and rain with some sleet and snow on the back edge.
10:57 pm
ice a possible hazard across the northern half of the uk, where it will be a really chilly first part of the morning. wintry showers starting to pile up in northern scotland. in fact, snow showers even to low levels over the highest hills — 15 cm of accumulating snow. and with gales or severe gales, especially around northern coasts, there could be blizzard conditions for a time. a band of cloud and rain with a little bit of sleet and snow over the high ground will slowly clear the southeast corner, then we see some sunshine, some wintry showers, a mix of rain, sleet and hill snow, especially out towards the west. those are the average wind speeds. the gusts will be stronger than that with the wind coming down from the north, so it is going to feel really chilly. on the thermometer, single—digit temperatures, 4—8 degrees. factor in the strength of the wind, this it what it will feel like. it will feel subzero across many northern parts of the uk. now, as we move through tuesday night, there's more snow to come in northern scotland, more wintry showers in the west, some clear spells elsewhere. it's going to be a cold night with frost and ice, temperatures dropping close to freezing, below freezing
10:58 pm
in quite a few places. so, a widespread frost to start wednesday morning, but wednesday should bring some decent spells of sunshine. a few showers still close to the east coast, one or two out west and up towards northern scotland. a little wedge of milder air with it, so some snow initially, then they will tend to turn back to rain, as that wedge of milder air works in, but then colder air returns from the west, wintry showers will start to push income is only temporarily will temperatures be a little bit higher. friday, another chile feeling day, hides a 5—8 . a mix of sunny spells and wintry showers.
