relegation. Brad Friedel helped Blackburn, meanwhile, get one step closer to promotion to the English Premier League. Denmark

England Gregg Berhalter, Crystal Palace
(D1) Entered as a substitute (58th min.) vs. Wolverhampton (0-2). Palace coach Alan Smith was fired after the match. Berhalter came on after
both goals were scored in just his third appearance since signing in February. The club has two games left to stave off relegation -- Wednesday against Portsmouth and Sunday against Stockport. Ian
Feuer, Wimbledon (D1) DNP vs. Fulham (1-1). Has not made substitutes bench in several weeks. Brad Friedel, Blackburn

earned them a much-needed victory over a team hovering near the relegation zone. The pressure was on after Bolton defeated Barnsley on Saturday. The win leaves Blackburn four points ahead of Bolton in
the race for promotion to the Premier League with two games remaining. A win Wednesday at Preston North End could clinch Blackburn's move up. Marcus Hahnemann, Fulham (D1) DNP vs. Wimbeldon (1-1).
