Fulham - Double For Barnes In Reserve Win
Giles Barnes scored twice for the reserves as Fulham beat Stoke 3-1 at Motspur Park on Tuesday.
A team, made up of first team players (albeit mostly squad players) and promising academy players, recorded an impressive 6th win in 7 matches and the double from the on-loan Derby man Barnes will aid his claims for a place in the first team as the season draws to a close.
Erik Nevland didn't do his chances of more first team football before the season is out any harm either as he also scored for Billy McKinlay's side.
The reserve season finishes next Monday when Fulham, unbeaten in 10 matches, travel to Aston Villa.
Do you think that Giles Barnes' goals, and Erik Nevland's, could see them force their way into Roy Hodgson's plans for the next first team match?
