Fulham 3 West Ham 1

Fulham 3 West Ham 1

After a succession of poor results, Martin Jol finally got his side to deliver a performance that was good enough, last night, to claim three points off West Ham with a comfortable win.

At a vibrant Craven Cottage, it was Fulham that took an early lead, on ten minutes, with a contentious goal. Having won a free kick, Damien Duff floated the ball into the danger area, Brede Hangeland helped it on with the faintest of touches for Berbatov to head home, on his birthday, from what seemed like an offside position.

Fulham continue dot look the better of the two sides controlling the play and Bryan Ruiz drilled a shot at Jaaskelainen with the Hammers keeper also reacting smartly to save from Rodallega.

West Ham were poor in the first half with only an early chance from Joe Cole, inside the first minute, plus an effort from Kevin Nolan that went wide of the post.

The second half started with a flourish with West Ham grabbing an equalizer. Nolan, the scorer of so many goals for the East London side, lost Berbatov and drilled home from an acute angle.

Thankfully, the disappointment at conceding so early lasted only a minute or two with Hugo Rodallega putting Fulham back in front, with the striker rising above two West Ham defenders to head a Duff cross home.

West Ham tried to get back on level terms again but Mark Schwarzer denied Nolan with a fine save before then producing another good save to deny Andy Carroll, who had come on as a substitute.

However, the game was finally settled in the last minute when Joey O`Brien, turned a shot from Mladen Petric into his own net. Three very welcome points that should set u sup nicely for the visit of Manchester united this weekend.
