Monday 20th November

FOOTBALL

All 12 Premiership teams enter this afternoon's Scottish Cup when the draw for the fourth round's made.  Highland League sides Brora Rangers, Cove Rangers, Formartine and Fraserburgh will be hoping to land a big-money tie along with League 2 Peterhead.  Celtic are the holders having completed the domestic treble last season with a last-minute win over Aberdeen at Hampden.

Tony Pulis has been sacked as head coach of West Brom after nearly three years in charge. Chairman John Williams says the decision wasn't "taken lightly" but is in the "best interests of the club". Albion are one point above the Premier League's relegation zone having failed to win their last 10 top flight matches. Former boss Gary Megson will be at the helm "until further notice".

 

TENNIS

Andy Murray won't be replacing Ivan Lendl any time soon - after splitting with the coach for a second time. His day-to-day coach Jamie Delgado says not much will change, as he'd been doing a lot of the work anyway - with Lendl only around on a part-time basis. Murray's not played competitively since Wimbledon because of a hip injury. Delgado says the coaching team won't be added to.

Former Wimbledon tennis champion Jana Novotna has died at the age of 49 after a long battle with cancer. The Women's Tennis Association says she passed away in the Czech Republic "peacefully, surrounded by her family". Novotna was famously consoled by the Duchess of Kent after losing the 1993 Wimbledon final. She was beaten again in the 97 decider - before winning her sole grand slam singles title a year later.


RUGBY
Saracens wing Sean Maitland and Glasgow hooker Fraser Brown have been recalled to the Scotland rugby union squad after injury. They're yet to feature in the autumn series, but could be involved against Australia on Saturday. At the weekend, the Scots suffered a narrow defeat against world champions New Zealand.

Scotland rugby union international Finn Russell will leave Glasgow at the end of the season. The club say he's been offered a "once in a lifetime opportunity" but haven't said who he's joining. The fly-half's been linked with a move to big spending French club Racing 92.

GOLF

Tommy Fleetwood's finished the season as Europe's number one golfer. He secured his place at the top of the money list by finishing close enough to Justin Rose at the World Tour Championship. His fellow Englishman had looked like winning both the overall title and the tournament itself until a poor final seven holes.
