Increase the shutter speed (about 1/1000) and raise the ISO (800 or above).
You should also put it on Continuous Focus.

That should do the trick.

ah i do have AI Servo ill give it a bash tomorrow and post my results thanks mate
No worries.
AI Servo will keep focusing on the subject as it's moving. That should help with focus.
Making the shutter speed faster should help with blurriness. Start with 1/1000 then go from there.
Increasing the ISO will help keep the photo with enough light when you increase the shutter speed.
The downside is that it makes the picture grainy, but you can get rid of this in post-processing.

You could leave it on auto yeh. That might be enough. But it will only alter the ISO based on the light, not the fact that you're shooting a moving subject.

I do basic post-processing in iPhoto. The enhance button is good most of the time. But you need to do it on the computer.
