Hahnemann posts another shutout for Wolves in 0-0 draw with Stoke.

(Wednesday, April 14, 2010) -- United States goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann earned another clean sheet, but the best Wolverhampton could do was a 0-0 draw Saturday with visiting Stoke City in the English Premier League at Molineux Stadium.

Stoke applied early pressure, but most of the threats against Hahnemann were long-range throw-ins or shots. He handled them easily.

With four matches remaining, Wolves (8-17-9, 33 points) are in 14th place and six points clear of the relegation zone.

In a meeting of American goalkeepers tonight, Aston Villa pulled out a 2-2 draw with Everton, profiting from an own goal in the 90th minute.

Brad Friedel had four saves for Aston Villa, while Tim Howard made four stops for Everton

Friedel was on the wrong end of a 3-0 loss to Chelsea Saturday in a FA Cup semifinal before 81,869 at Wembley Stadium.

Villa and Friedel played well for more than a hour, with Friedel holding the match scoreless until the 67th minute when the Villa defense seemed to run out of gas. Didier Drogba got to a loose ball and blasted it past Friedel before Chelsea then added additional goals in the final minute and in stoppage time.

American keeper Brad Guzan was on the Villa bench.

U.S. midfielder Clint Dempsey sat out Fulham's 0-0 draw at Liverpool with a thigh injury, suffered on the final play of the previous week's match against Wigan Athletic. The injury is not considered serious, but it also kept him out of last Thursday's 1-0 victory at VfL Wolfsburg of Bermany in a Europa League quarterfinal game.

Dempsey status is considered day-to-day.

U.S. defender Jonathan Spector went 90 minutes for West Ham United in a much-needed 1-0 decision over visiting Sunderland.

West Ham moved four points above the relegation zone in 17th place at 7-17-10 with 31 points.

U.S. striker Jozy Altidore went the distance for Hull City, which fell 4-1 to visiting Burnley.

Altidore assisted on an early goal that briefly gave Hull the lead.

In the second tier English League Championship, U.S. defender Jay DeMerit was back in action and went the distance in Watford's important 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle.

A superior effort by the Watford defense, anchored by DeMerit, made the difference.

Watford (12-18-12, 48) moved into 19th place, four points and three positions above the relegation zone, with four games left.

American forward Kenny Cooper played the final minute for Plymouth (11-24-8, 41), which is in 23rd place and five points from escaping the drop zone with three matches remaining.

Sheffield Wednesday is also threatened by relegation at 11-20-12 with 45 points, one point from safety with three games to go.
