Midweek TV Preview 16 - 18 November 2009

Monday 16th November

19:45 Coleraine v Glenavon, IFA Premiership, Sky Sports 1 & HD1
Not much to talk about this week. The last knockings of World Cup qualifying is underway with precious little local interest. So instead, Sky have wheeled out this rare gem from Northern Ireland.

Tuesday 17th November

19:45 Northern Ireland v Czech Republic, U21 International , Sky Sports 1& HD1
This is a European Championship Qualifier. Northern Ireland, who haven't won in five, try to stop a Czech team who have won their last four matches.

Wednesday 18th November

19:45 France v Republic of Ireland, World Cup Qualifying Play Off Second Leg, Sky Sports 1& HD1 (first leg 0-1)
Sky have this down as 'TBC' so I'm assuming that the game will be screened in this slot. What is there to say? Ireland have it all to do and you feel only a meltdown of catastrophic proportions will prevent La Marseillaise being sung in South Africa next year.

19:45 Slovenia v Russia, World Cup Qualifying Play Off Second Leg, ESPN & HD (first leg 2-1)
Again, ESPN haven't scheduled it on their official listings but it's definitely on. The Russians have complicated what looked to be a very straightforward process. The Slovenians are tough to beat and know that a single goal will see them through and enrage some pretty powerful men in Russia.

And that's about it. There's a stack of Beach Soccer on Eurosport if that takes your fancy. Hopefully a broadcaster will decide to pick up the Egypt v Algeria Play Off in Sudan on Wednesday where drama is guaranteed.
