3. U.S. ABROAD: Cherundolo in German Cup win; Convey nurses knee
October 25th, 2006 2:16AM



It keeps getting worse for Eddie Lewis and Leeds, which last season nearly won promotion to the Premier League but is now in the second tier's relegation zone. In English League Cup third round play, Lewis played 69 minutes as his team was eliminated with a 3-1 loss at home to Southend, another second-tier struggler. Also in Tuesday's League Cup play, Jay DeMerit and Watford downed second tier Hull, 2-1.

Midfielder Bobby Convey's absence from the lineup of English Premier League club Reading is because of a hurt knee that has been plaguing him since last summer's World Cup. The 23-year-old told the Reading Evening Post: "It's been bugging me from the start of the season. I've been playing on it, but it's not felt right and it just got to the stage where I couldn't move and then in training it just gave out.

"It just swells up but I trained fully yesterday. I still don't feel comfortable but it is getting better every day. All I can do is rest and get some strength in it in the gym. Hopefully I'll be back on Saturday, that's definitely the target."
