Fulham - Barnes Influential in Reserves Win!

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?

I was there and I didnt see Hodgson watching. Did see Ray Lewington in and around the tunnel and bench. Barnes was great though. Really impressive.
