AMSTERDAM – Bob Bradley celebrated his first victory in France after Le Havre struck late to claim a see-saw 3-2 win over Ligue 2 guests Evian on Tuesday night.
The Sky-and-Navy grabbed a lead early in each half, but were caught from behind by the visitors each time. Ghislain Gambert's second goal of the contest 10 minutes from time earned the full points for Bradley and his new charges. The win put Le Havre back into fourth place, while reducing their deficit on the top spot to just six points.
Across the channel in England, Geoff Cameron went the distance in midfield as Stoke City booked a spot in the Capital One Cup semifinals by topping underdog visitors Sheffield Wednesday 2-0.
The Potters were joined in the semifinals by Everton, who gave Tim Howard the night off from a 2-0 win at Middlesbrough.
Turning to the Bulgarian top flight, Bjorn Maars Johnsen bagged the equalizer in Litex Lovech's 1-1 draw at Cherno More Varna.
The striker nodded home a cross just before intermission for his sixth goal of the season, good for fourth on the league chart. The result at least temporarily pulled second-place Litex to within two points of the summit.
Finally, in the Scottish second flight, Gedion Zelalam set up the Rangers second goal in a 4-0 rout of Dumbarton.
Near the hour mark, the US U-23 ace fed Martyn Waghorn for a long-range rocket. It was Zelalam's third assist of the league season and sixth on the overall campaign. The Light Blues stand three points clear at the top through 15 rounds.
