Weekend Divi 1 Scores
Portsmouth 1 Fulham 1

last updated Saturday 21st April 2001, 7:30 PM

Fulham Football Club are the top club in the Nationwide league.

The Mighty White Machine went to the seaside and it seems went on holiday as well.

Fulham let in a goal in the 10th minute and had a difficult time of it until the Ref decided that one of the many fouls by Portsmouth players warranted a penalty in the 78th minute. Louis Saha stepped up and slotted it away for his 9th penalty and 30th goal of the season.

We were unable to create any of the flowing football we are now known for and there were a number of missed chances in front of goal

The Fulhamweb prediction for the Portsmouth game was another 2-1 to the Cottagers with a crowd of 18250 the score was 1-1 with a crowd of 17651.

Blackburn slipped up with a 0-0 draw away at Wolves while Bolton managed a rare home win against Norwich. So Blackburn are now just one point in front of Bolton albeit with a game in hand. Come on Bolton, Come on Bolton.

Elsewhere QPR and Tranmere are relegated.

Say ... We are champions of Division One have only 4 games to go, have lost only four games all season, have the best goal difference with the leading goal scorer in the Premier and Nationwide leagues and will be playing in the Premiership next season. Ho, ho, ho, he, he, he..............

Preston (6) v Watford (8)

Preston defender Rob Edwards has fully recovered from the head injury he sustained in the 4-0 victory at Barnsley on Easter Monday, as has striker Jon Macken. But defender Michael Jackson (back) is expected to miss out again, while keeper Tepi Moilanen (ankle) is out for the rest of the season.

Watford goalkeeper Espen Baardsen (groin) is out so Alec Chamberlain, who replaced the Norwegian at Blundell Park and in Tuesday's 3-2 success against Wolves, will continue to deputise. Otherwise, manager Graham Taylor has no injury concerns.

Last season: No Corresponding fixture

Last five league matches: Preston D L D D W, Watford L W D L W

Top Scorers: Jonathon Macken (Preston) 18
