David Edwards in action for Wolves 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers extended their unbeaten run to six games after a hard-fought 1-0 victory away to Blackburn.The win puts Wolves five points ahead of their hosts and sees them leapfrog Sheffield Wednesday into eighth place, while Rovers remain tenth in the Championship, one point ahead of Cardiff City.Kenny Jackett’s men had the better of the opening 15 minutes with Nouha Dicko twice going close after defensive errors by Lee Williamson and Tom Cairney respectively.Despite the early Wolves pressure, Blackburn began to gain a foothold on the game after 20 minutes with Ben Marshall heading a Jordan Rhodes cross just wide following good link up play.While, after 33 minutes, a long Marshall throw caused panic in the Wolves area before a controversial free-kick was awarded for a high foot by Edwards, although Wolves goalkeeper Ikeme saved the resulting strike.Following a quiet first half for both teams, the visitors put themselves in front almost immediately after the break. Dicko, a constant problem for Rovers, played Edwards through on the right of the penalty area and the Welsh midfielder made no mistake, steering it past Blackburn keeper Jason Steele into the bottom-left corner.The hosts almost equalised a few minutes later when Richard Stearman headed a Cairney cross against his own post but, other than this scare, Wolves continued to have the better chances with another Dicko shot hitting the bar, following good work by James Henry and Edwards, with 73 minutes gone .Despite a nervy final few minutes for Wolves, with fans singing Ikeme’s name after a couple of late saves, the visitors deservedly took all three points back to Molineux.

Gutsy Sherman Oaks singer Katharine McPhee held her ground on “American Idol” Wednesday, but unexpectedly saw fan support dwindle. McPhee, the subject of kitchen conversation from Calabasas to Glendale, had among the lowest number of votes this week. Her version of “The Voice Within” by Christina Aguilera prompted resident meanie Simon Cowell to knock her rendition as “nowhere near” as good as Aguilera’s. But it was Lisa Tucker, 16, who got the boot Wednesday, with viewers agreeing with judges who slammed her version of 2002 “Idol” winner Kelly Clarkson’s ballad “Because of You.” Tucker’s ouster trimmed the hopefuls to nine. The final “Idol” will be crowned May 24. Until this week, McPhee’s well-trained voice and Broadway moves were paying off, making her the most polished of the remaining “Idol” hopefuls and a firm audience favorite. Her closest competition, according to fans, was bald singer Chris Daughtry. After Tucker, McPhee, 21, and Ace Young, 25, had the next-lowest vote tallies. “The public knows best,” Cowell said. Wednesday’s elimination show featured a sizzling performance by Latin pop star Shakira and rapper Wyclef Jean, who performed Shakira’s latest single “Hips Don’t Lie,” featuring Jean.
