Fulham Get That Vital First Win At Home To Blackburn Rovers


After the disappointment of losing, in the first game of the new season, away to Barnsley, it was essential that Scott Parker’s side took something from the second game of the season, at home to Blackburn Rovers.

The Craven Cottage support are desperate to see their side make an instant return to the Premier League but know they need to get on a winning run and show some form.

Thankfully, against Blackburn Rovers that was exactly what happened.

A goal in each half, from key members of the starting eleven, was enough to give Fulham that first win of the season.

The opening goal of the game came in the 34th minute and what a cracker it was with Tom Cairney seeing his left-footed effort, from twenty-five yards, beat the keeper all ends up and find the top corner.

The second and decisive goal of the game came in the 81st minute when Aleksandar Mitrovic was on hand to tap in from close range after Joe Bryan had produced some excellent work.

But Fulham didn’t have it all their own way, with, once again, the Fulham defence looking shaky but, fortunately, Adam Armstrong on a couple of occasions, couldn’t capitalise.

Next up for Fulham is an away trip to take on Huddersfield Town, a clash between two sides relegated from the Premier League last season.
