Peschisolido never featured at all in new Fulham coach Jean Tigana's plans in 2000-01 and his only first-team games came in the Worthington Cup when many fringe players were used.

He eventually joined neighbours Queens Park Rangers at the beginning of November where he made an instant impact by scoring after just ten minutes of his debut against Portsmouth.

No permanent deal could be reached between the two clubs and he returned to Craven Cottage only to go out on loan again to Sheffield United where he impressed with his striking qualities.

Norwich City was Peschisolido's final port of call for the season.

Signed just 20 minutes ahead of the transfer deadline, he was brought in to add experience to the front line for the important run-in to the end of the season.

He linked well with Iwan Roberts, displaying the skills and techniques that have made him such a success throughout his career.

Quick to see openings, he has the ability to take on defenders in very tight situations and to anticipate where the ball might go inside the penalty area.

He continued to appear regularly for Canada winning nine more caps and featured in the Confederations Cup matches during the summer of 2001.

Peschisolido joined Derby County in March 2004 with a contract to June 2006.
