Chelsea 1 – Bolton 0 (Premier League, April 13, 2010) Chelsea broke the deadlock with Bolton minutes before the break, Ballack played in Drogba down the left and his pinpoint cross was headed home by Nicolas Anelka. (First half highlights here.)
Reading 1 – Newcastle 2 (Championship, April 13, 2010) Kevin Nolan scored his first when he turned marker Alex Pearce before firing past Adam Federici from 12 yards. And just before the break Nolan scored his 18th of the season when he was on hand to tap in Wayne Routledge’s cross. Danny Simpson’s own goal gave Reading hope when a clearance hit his back and rolled in, but Newcastle clung on.
Carlisle 1 – Leeds 3 (League One, April 13, 2010) Luciano Becchio tapped in an early opener for Leeds after Carlisle keeper Adam Collin spilled a Robert Snodgrass free-kick. Carlisle levelled against the run of play when Richard Keogh headed in a free-kick from Leeds old boy Ian Harte. But Leeds rapidly sealed the win on the restart, Max Gradel heading in Jonathan Howson’s cross before Max Gradel fed Becchio for a slotted second.
