BATA, Equatorial Guinea - Top-ranked African team Algeria and four-time champion Ghana still have work to do to make the quarterfinals at the African Cup of Nations and avoid the severe embarrassment of an early elimination.Both have lost once in Equatorial Guinea, ensuring their final games in Group C on Tuesday are loaded with pressure.Algeria meets surprise group leader Senegal in Malabo and Ghana plays South Africa in Mongomo. For each, a win would guarantee a place in the last eight, but a draw could become complicated and bring in the tiebreaker rules to decide who progresses. Defeat means an early flight home.Algeria — as so often happens with pre-tournament favourites at the African Cup — has found the going tougher than expected. The North Africans took time to get going against South Africa, then gave up a stoppage-time goal in a loss to Ghana.Coach Christian Gourcuff blamed the field in the remote far-eastern city of Mongomo for many of his teams problems, and promised they would be more effective at the stadium in the capital city Malabo.That leaves no room for excuses against an unbeaten Senegal side that has pace, power and confidence — and needs just a point to go through.Gourcuff has had a tough time over the past week. His mother died ahead of the Ghana loss and he has faced criticism back home for his tactics. Algerias highly rated attacking trio of Islam Slimani, Yacine Brahimi and Sofiane Feghouli has yet to get going and striker Slimani will miss the Senegal game with injury, the federation said.Add in the logistical problems of the border town of Mongomo, where the Algerians hotel was more than an hour away from their rugged training field, and the squad is likely looking forward to Malabo.Some players are not happy, captain Madjid Bougherra said of the time in Mongomo. But its OK ... we are a family.For Ghana, that glorious run to the quarterfinals at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa is a distant memory.A terrible World Cup in Brazil last year has been followed by early struggles at the African Cup under former Chelsea coach Avram Grant. He had a hard introduction when Ghana threw away a 1-0 lead and lost 2-1 to Senegal with a goal in the dying seconds of its opener.But captain and lead striker Asamoah Gyan is back now after a mild bout of malaria, returning to the team to score a crucial late winner against Algeria. His presence gives the Ghanaians a major lift.Hes a great player, a fantastic player, great attitude, Grant said of his skipper. Hes fantastic in important games.

Casey Janssen was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday due to a strain in his left abdominal area and lower back. Fellow right-hander Sergio Santos will take over the closers role while Janssen is out of the lineup. Janssen, 4-1 with 34 saves and a 2.56 earned-run average last year, was limited at spring training because of shoulder soreness. But on Friday, he felt some minor discomfort in his lower back while warming up during a pre-season game against the New York Mets in Montreal. An MRI exam revealed a mild strain, general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Sunday on a conference call. "We dont expect him to be out too long," Anthopoulos said. "There was a scenario where we could have just waited maybe five or six days and try to get him back going. But we want to just have this thing resolved and not nag at him." The move was retroactive to Saturday. Janssen, 32, allowed one earned run and four hits in three innings over three pre-season appearances. Hes expected to thrrow on flat ground to keep his arm in shape before trying to pitch from a mound.dddddddddddd The Blue Jays also recalled catcher Erik Kratz from triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, a day ahead of Torontos season opener at Tampa Bay. Kratz hit .400 in spring training and had been sent to minor-league camp earlier in the week after losing the backup job to Josh Thole. Santos, 30, made 29 appearances for the Blue Jays last season. He was 1-1 with one save and a 1.75 ERA. Also Sunday, former reliever Dustin McGowan pitched a simulated game and Anthopoulos said it appears hell be ready to start Friday against the New York Yankees. "Hes done so well," Anthopoulos said. "We dont expect any changes at all. So far, so good. He felt good, felt strong, and we expect him to be good to go for Opening Day in Toronto." McGowan, 32, was named to the starting rotation earlier in the week. The right-hander made his debut with the Blue Jays in 2005 but has battled injuries throughout his career. McGowan had a 2.45 ERA in 25 appearances last season and did not record a decision or a save. ' ' '
