Has Brad Friedel Saved Yeovil?

On-loan goalkeeper Chris Weale scored an injury-time equaliser on Tuesday night that may well have helped save Yeovil Town from relegation, and he had Brad Friedel to thank.

With the Glovers 2-1 down against the now outgoing Graham Turner`s Hereford United side, Weale, on loan from Bristol City popped up for a corner and buried what I can only describe as a fine header past his opposite number to scramble a much needed point.

The draw now takes Yeovil 4 points clear of the drop zone with just two fixtures remaining and their unlikely hero had Brad Friedel to thank having taken inspiration from the former US #1`s book:

Weale said: "I saw a picture of Brad scoring in his book and decided I`d have a go."

Perhaps my idea of putting Brad Guzan up alongside John Carew (on account he falls over less often than Heskey) isn`t such a crazy one after all?

Not at all, we need Friedel to stay in goal, but Guzan isn;'t doing much at the moment so lets use him as a forward.

That's a bit unfair on Heskey, to be honest. After all, his scoring is into double figures already - two.
