Super sub Bayly keeps Rovers in the hunt

Shamrock Rovers 1 Bnei Yehuda 1

Substitute Robert Bayly scored a dramatic stoppage time equaliser to keep Shamrock Rovers' Europa League hopes alive as they had to settle for a frustrating draw before a packed Tallaght Stadium.

Rovers started well but conceded on the counterattack on 26 minutes.

Midfielder Assis Baldoud's put Yeghia Yaruyan through on goal and although keeper Alan Mannus got a touch on the ball, it ran into the path of Omri Afrek who slid fired home from close range.

Rovers battled back in the second-half, but the game looked finished until the 91st minute.

Midfielder Bayly's initial shot came back off team-mate Gary Twigg and he rifled the rebound past Yehuda keeper Dele Aiyenugha to see the home crowd into raptures.

A Polish prisoner carefully checks there are no guards around before he enters one of the SS cloakrooms in Auschwitz. He takes out a hidden vial and quickly sprinkles its contents on the collars of those hated uniforms, before slipping out again. Within two weeks some of the Germans had come down with the typhoid that was wiping out so many of the prisoners.Gripping account of the hero who volunteered to go to Auschwitz
