Fulham escaped a League Cup giant killing on Tuesday evening as they defeated Burton Albion 5-4 on penalties after the game had finished 2-2 after extra-time.

Fulham escaped a Capital One Cup giant killing on Tuesday evening as they defeated Burton Albion 5-4 on penalties after the game had finished 2-2 after extra-time.

Adel Taarabt’s first goal for the Club looked to have won things for the visitors at the Pirelli Stadium, before Jack Dyer popped up with five minutes remaining to force an additional 30 minutes of action.

Sascha Riether went close for Fulham when he hit a post, but it was the Brewers who broke the deadlock when substitute Michael Symes headed in at the far post. It looked as though it was enough to send Albion through, until Hugo Rodallega struck at the death.

It meant penalties were inevitable, with John Arne Riise smashing home the decisive spot kick after David Stockdale had denied Dyer.

Martin Jol made four changes from the side that lost to Arsenal on Saturday, with Darren Bent given a full debut, while Ashkan Dejagah and Bryan Ruiz made their first appearances of the season. Giorgos Karagounis was also handed a first start of the new campaign.

Burton started with purpose but Fulham quickly worked the first opening on three minutes when Brede Hangeland came within an inch of Karagounis’ corner after Riise had won the set-piece off Phil Edwards’ shins.

Good running by Taarabt a minute later brought the first save of the match, with the Morocco international shooting down the throat of Dean Lyness, who held well.

Some quick pass and move football on 12 minutes saw Dejagah cut inside before finding Bent who had made a stealthy run into the channel, but the striker’s low ball across the face was confidently claimed by Lyness.

Rene Howe showed good strength to hold off Hangeland six minutes later – the striker managed to get his shot away but his contact was scuffed and the effort trickled harmlessly wide of Stockdale’s post.

The Whites – in their new red away strip – worked a dangerous opening with 24 minutes on the clock as Taarabt advanced before disguising a square pass to Bent, who rifled in an effort that was deflected behind for a corner.

After a speculative effort from the right boot of Chris Hussey had flown wide, Karagounis was next to try his luck from range but while his 25-yarded was dipping, it never had quite enough on it to trouble Lyness.

The away side opened the scoring in fine style in the 35th minute through the mercurial Taarabt. The playmaker – who had been on the end of many a stray leg throughout the first half – skipped inside his man from the left hand side of the area, before clipping a low effort beyond Lyness and inside the far post to open his Fulham account in pristine style.

Burton had been sitting deep with 10 men behind the ball whenever Fulham were in possession, but the goal had forced them out of their shell and Howe forced a smart save from Stockdale on 40 minutes following a powerful run.

Jol made one change at the interval, with Taarabt replaced by Alexander Kacaniklic in a like for like change.

After a slow opening to the second period, it was 10 minutes before the first chance of note, with Lyness claiming Dejagah’s ferocious effort from distance at the second attempt.

A sublime ball over the top from Karagounis four minutes later found Ruiz who got the ball under control expertly and rounded the ‘keeper, only for a Burton defender to recover brilliantly to get a block in as Ruiz pulled the trigger for what would have been a certain goal.

A defensive lapse by Ian Sharps on 67 minutes allowed Bent to get in behind but with Lyness rushing out quickly, our number 39 could only prod into the stopper’s advancing torso.

And the Whites went close again to a second four minutes later, with Bent involved once more when he collected Ruiz’s exquisite through ball before seeing his drilled cross just turned around the post by a man in yellow.

Roared on by a vocal home crowd, Burton then had their best spell of the game, culminating in Dyer fizzing a well struck shot marginally wide of Stockdale’s far post, before Hussey volleyed an effort into the keeper’s arms shortly after.

If anyone looked like scoring it was going to be the Brewers, and they did just that with five minutes remaining when Dyer drilled a fine effort into the back of the net after meeting Hussey’s accurate cross first time.

The vociferous home crowd thought they’d won the tie in normal time when the ball was bundled beyond Stockdale and beyond the line, but Symes was adjudged to have used his arm and the goal was ruled out.

It was a frenetic climax to the 90 minutes as Bent then saw his legs taken away as he went to connect with substitute Pajtim Kasami’s cross, but the referee ruled no foul, despite the boisterous claims from the Fulham fans behind the goal.

With extra-time underway, the first opportunity fell the way of the hosts, with Stockdale doing well to watch the flight of Damien McCrory’s deflected effort from 20 yards out to hold the shot.

Bent then forced a top class stop from Lyness at the other end when he smashed a powerful effort towards the near post following a corner that the goalkeeper did brilliantly to beat away.

Neat footwork from Kasami in the 96th minute saw him work some space for himself inside the penalty area – the Swiss twisted and turned before firing in a low effort that Lyness pushed against the post and behind for a corner.

Riether was then relentlessly unlucky as he was twice denied a goal two minutes later. Firstly, he crashed Kacaniklic’s cutback against the post, before the follow up was blocked on the line by Sharps.

With Fulham in control, Burton’s second goal came as a bolt out of the blue when Symes rose highest at the far post to nod in another fantastic Hussey cross. Jol then played his last throw of the dice by throwing Rodallega on for Karagounis.

Only a fingertip save by Stockdale in the 109th minute kept Fulham in the contest, as our goalkeeper flew to his left to magnificently tip over Jimmy Phillips’ goalbound shot. And he was in action again with five minutes remaining, when he got down low to deny the excellent Hussey.

Time was running out for Fulham, and a speculative effort from Kacaniklic on 116 minutes was all too easy for Lyness who claimed comfortably, but there was nothing he could do about Rodallega’s strike a minute later.

With a plethora of bodies inside the box, Scott Parker managed to get a shot away that came back off the crossbar and, following something of a scramble, Rodallega was on hand to plant a great strike beyond Lyness.

And the Colombian almost eradicated the need for penalties in the final minute of extra-time, but his well struck volley flew just wide, with Kasami doing likewise with a first time effort shortly after that proved to be the final chance in the 120 minutes.

The penalty shoot-out took place in front of the Fulham fans, but the travelling support couldn’t put Symes off as the former Everton youth team player calmly sent Stockdale the wrong way.

Bent was then up first for Fulham, and the England man made no mistake, leaving Lyness with no chance as he thumped an effort into the top corner.

Albion substitute Adam Reed then followed Symes’ example as he also rolled his spot kick to the left as Stockdale dived in the opposite direction.

Fulham were then given a huge slice of luck as Ruiz’s penalty hit the post before coming back off Lyness and into the net.

It was then advantage to the visitors as Dyer saw his kick brilliantly palmed to safety by Stockdale, with Riether converting to make it 3-2 to the team in red.

The pressure was then on McCrory who was up next for Burton, but the midfielder made no mistake as he emphatically put the ball beyond the reach of Stockdale, who guessed the right way.

Rodallega – Fulham’s extra-time hero – netted confidently to put Hussey under pressure, but Burton’s Man of the Match slotted home well.

It meant it was all on Riise, and the Norwegian opted for power, blasting an effort straight down the middle to send his side into the Third Round.
