An Impressive Victory Sees Fulham Jump Into Fourth Place In The Championship


Two wins in quick succession has given the Fulham support hope that the club, guided by Scott Parker, can make an instant return to the Premier League.

After beating Wigan, 2-0 at Craven Cottage on Saturday, Fulham made the short trip down the M4 to take on Reading last night.

After weathering a spell of early pressure, from our hosts, Parker saw his side produce an emphatic performance that saw them run out 4-1 winners.

The storm-gates were opened when Tom Cairney opened the scoring and then Aleksander Mitrovic getting back on the goal-trail with a brace inside three minutes.

Leading 3-0 at half-time, Fulham eased into a 4-0 lead courtesy of a second goal from Cairney before, late on, Yakou Meite put the only dampener on Fulham’s night by getting a consolation goal thereby depriving the Cottagers of a clean sheet.

The victory moves Fulham up to fourth place in the table two points adrift of Leeds United with ten games played.

The next three Championship fixtures see Fulham take on Charlton Athletic and Luton Town at Craven Cottage with a trip to beleaguered Stoke City in between those two games.

Suddenly, things are looking bright again for Fulham Football Club.
