West Ham is last with 33 points and will be relegated if Birmingham avoids defeat. Wigan has 36 points and Blackpool has 39 after DJ Campbell scored twice Saturday in a 4-3 win over Bolton.

Blackpool now trails Birmingham only on goal difference, although Wolverhampton Wanderers won 3-1 at Sunderland to have their hopes of relegation similarly boosted. Wolves are now 16th with 40 points.

West Bromwich Albion won 1-0 against Everton in Saturday’s other game to move up to 10th place in the standings.

BERLIN (AP) _ Eintracht Frankfurt was relegated from the Bundesliga with a 3-1 defeat at champion Borussia Dortmund on the last day of the season, while Wolfsburg ensured survival with a 3-1 win at Hoffenheim.

Dortmund clinched the title as far back as April 30, but waited until Saturday for its official title celebrations, while Frankfurt players were left to consider the club’s relegation to the second division for the fourth time.

Borussia Moenchengladbach drew 1-1 at Hamburger SV to finish 16th and goes into a two-game playoff with the third-place team from division two, either Bochum or Greuther Fuerth.

An own goal from Freiburg’s Cedrick Makiadi was enough for Bayer Leverkusen to win 1-0 at Freiburg and secure second place in the Bundesliga and, with it, the automatic Champions League place.

Leverkusen finished ahead of third-place Bayern Munich, which beat Stuttgart 2-1 at home.

Hannover beat Nuremberg 3-1 to secure fourth place over Mainz, which defeated relegated St. Pauli 2-1 at home. Elsewhere, Kaiserslautern beat Werder Bremen 3-2, and Schalke lost 2-1 at Cologne.

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) _ A day before Rangers and Celtic fight it out for the Scottish Premier League title, Inverness won 2-1 at relegated Hamilton to finish atop of the division’s second tier.

The league split into two groups of six sides several weeks ago and Richie Foran and Adam Rooney scored Saturday to give Inverness bragging rights in the lower section _ effectively seventh place in the overall standings.

St. Johnstone was already assured of eighth place before its 0-0 draw at St. Mirren, but Aberdeen took ninth with a 3-1 win at Hibernian.

Defending champion Rangers leads second-place Celtic by a point ahead of Sunday’s final matches. Rangers is at Kilmarnock and Celtic hosts Motherwell.
