Fulham - Barnes Influential in Reserves Win!
The fight to get Giles Barnes, our loan signing from Derby County, fit enough to try and influence Roy Hodgson`s first team selection this season continues in earnest.
Barnes was given a full ninety minute run out with the reserves as they overwhelmed Arsenal reserves 3-0 (and there were we thinking Arsene`s kids were special?).
More importantly though Barnes managed to score his first goal in a Fulham shirt in the fixture at Motspur Park, the third after goals from Adam Wyatt and Diomansy Kamara had ended any Arsenal resistance.
With Roy Hodgson watching I wonder if Barnes has edged a little closer to the first team squad?
