Rangers defender Dominic Ball has had to disappoint his friends ahead of his Old Firm debut after admitting he could not get them tickets. The on-loan Tottenham youngster is looking forward to his first taste of Glasgow derby action when Mark Warburtons side face Celtic in Sundays Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park, live on Sky Sports. Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon explains his infamous bust up with ex Rangers boss Ally McCoist at the Old Firm derby The 20-year-old has already helped the Light Blues win the Scottish Championship, as well as claiming silverware in the Petrofac Training Cup final with a 4-0 win over Peterhead.But Ball has been unable to accommodate all those eager to attend the Old Firm contest, such has been the demand for tickets.Sunday is probably going to be the biggest game of the season - the biggest game of my life - so I am going to relish it and go out and do a job, he said. As soon as the draw was made I had 40 or 50 people asking me for tickets. I had to say I would see what I could do but my family comes first and I couldnt promise them anything.Everyone wants special people around them to be there and for me that is my family, my girlfriend, my close friends. I think I will have enough to satisfy those needs but not everybody.Rangers boss Mark Warburton looks set to hand Ball the responsibility of anchoring Gers midfield in the hope he can curb Celtics threat from deep. Former Rangers player and manager Graeme Souness explains why the Old Firm derby against Celtic is the most intense fixture in world football Patrick Roberts will be one of the Hoops players he will have to keep an eye out for, with the on-loan Manchester City entertainer having made a big impression in recent weeks.I have seen little bits of Celtic this season when they are on and we are not playing and I think we have a real good chance, he added.I think Ive played against Patrick Roberts in a reserve game when he was back at Manchester City. He is a very good player but we have got very good players as well, so we will see. Former Rangers captain David Weir looks back on his memories of his Old Firm derby against Celtic I have seen them have good games, I have seen them have bad games, so I guess whatever team up turns up or not on the day will be the team that wins.Spurs trainee Ball also feels Celtic will push Rangers in ways they have not experienced on their way to the second-tier crown title this season.I just think it is that intensity, that constant pressure they will bring, added the 20-year-old.Sometimes it gets to 70 minutes at 0-0 and we know we are going to win because the other team is going to drop off.But I think that is going to be different, they will be as fit as us and it is going to be the challenge of quality now.Ball may not have experienced the white-hot heat of an OId Firm scrap before but he knows the importance of keeping emotion in check as Gers bid to land a trophy treble. Souness: Celtic big favourites Graeme Souness believes Celtic are favourites to beat Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final It is important to deal with our emotions individually and as a team, he said. You dont want anyone sent off. We just want to go out and play our football, get our job done and win.I won two medals in the space of five days last week and that is why I came to Rangers. It is a big club.Our targets were set at the start of the season and to now have two trophies too is brilliant. But we want a third.Watch Rangers v Celtic on Sunday.

Cheap Air Max 90 All White . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros overcame a dominate outing by Chris Sale by taking advantage of a pair of defensive miscues that helped them to a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Erik Bedard pitched six solid innings, and Jose Altuve hit a go-ahead RBI single to help the Astros to the victory. Alexei Ramirez committed two errors in the fifth inning to help the Astros take the lead. The errors ruined a great outing by Sale (5-5), who allowed five hits and no earned runs with a season-high 14 strikeouts in eight innings. Sale had retired 11 of 12 before Ronny Cedeno reached with no outs in the fifth on the first error by Ramirez. Cedeno advanced to second on a wild pitch by Sale with two outs before Trevor Crowe drew a walk. The second error by Ramirez came when he badly overthrew second base on a force play, which allowed Brandon Barnes to reach, Crowe to move to third, and Cedeno to score. Houston took a 2-1 lead when Altuve singled on a sharp grounder that scored Crowe. "That is what you call straight effort baseball," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "Guys just legging out infield hits and giving it everything they have hustling on the bases. Just an all-around tremendous job against one of the more dominant pitchers in our league." Barnes raved about Sale and was glad the Astros were able to pounce on Chicago after the errors. "When a guy is in scoring position, thats when youve really got to lock in and try to make something happen," Barnes said. "We put some balls in play in the right spots, and thats when things happened." White Sox manager Robin Ventura was disappointed that his team wasnt able to help back up Sales performance. "Its obviously frustrating to lose when you get a pitching performance like that," Ventura said. "Chris threw great. They just had an inning where they scored a couple runs and never hit the ball out of the infield. Its a tough one as far as the way he pitched, and you want to get better." Bedard (2-3) yielded three hits and one run with six strikeouts to bounce back from his previous outing when he allowed six runs in 4 2-3 innings. Jose Cisnero and Travis Blackley combined to pitch two scoreless innings before Jose Veras threw a scoreless ninth for his 12th save. Sale was pitching on extra rest after he was scheduled to start Chicagos game against Toronto on Wednesday, which was postponed due to bad weather. He took a third straight loss despite coming just one strikeout shy of his career best off 15.dddddddddddd. Ramirez didnt speak to reporters after the game, but was visibly distraught when the group entered the clubhouse. He remained in his uniform, sitting motionless at his locker with his head buried in his hands. Sale called Ramirez "one of the best" after the game and said no one can be perfect all the time. "I went over there and tapped him on the shoulder and said: Hey, youre still the best. Stuff happens. Derek Jeter makes errors. Things happen to great players sometimes," Sale said. The White Sox, who entered the game having won three of four, continued to struggle on the road and have dropped 10 of 11 away from Chicago. They have been outscored 62-34 in that span. Paul Konerko doubled to start the fourth inning and advanced to third on a passed ball by Carlos Corporan. The White Sox took a 1-0 lead when Konerko scored on a sacrifice fly by Adam Dunn. Casper Wells walked to start the fifth inning and got to third on a single by Ramirez with two outs. The White Sox came up empty when Bedard struck out Alex Rios to end the inning. Bedard got into trouble in the second when he loaded the bases on a single by Wells with two outs, but he escaped the jam by striking out Tyler Flowers. Before his tough fifth inning, Ramirez robbed Chris Carter of a hit when he made a leaping catch on a sharp liner to end the fourth. NOTES: The White Sox are scheduled to start left-handers in each of the four games of this series. It will be the first time Houston has faced four straight left-handers since September 2002 when they faced two from the Dodgers followed by two against Colorado, according to information provided by the Astros from the Elias Sports Bureau. ... The series will continue on Saturday when Houstons Lucas Harrell opposes John Danks. ... OF Alejandro De Aza was out of the lineup on Friday because of a stomach problem.
