Fulham suffered a fourth successive Sky Bet Championship defeat after a heavy 5-1 loss at Derby County.

Trailing to Jamie Ward’s first-half strike, the Whites levelled on 54 minutes through Scott Parker.

But the joy was short-lived. Craig Bryson made it 2-1, with Chris Martin increasing their advantage 60 seconds later.

It was 4-1 with three minutes left. Substitute Simon Dawkins saw his shot come off the post but Martin was there to turn home the rebound. And almost immediately from the kick-off, it was 5-1. Will Hughes fed Dawkins whose shot went in off the far stick and in to cap off a miserable afternoon for the Whites.

Fulham boss Felix Magath made one change from the side that lost 1-0 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, with Ryan Williams coming in for his full debut in place of Mark Fotheringham.

Derby started brightly and almost went in front in the third minute when Cyrus Christie's cross from the right was met full on the volley by Johnny Russell whose left-footed effort flashed just over the bar.

At the other end, Cauley Woodrow let fly from distance but his left-footed effort went five yards wide of the far post.

In the 12th minute, good football by Fulham saw the ball worked down the left. Kostas Stafylidis’ sent in a low cross which Woodrow was inches away from meeting. Derby went down the other end and Christie cut inside but sent his left-footed effort straight at Jesse Joronen.

Derby went in front in the 23rd minute. Christie and Russell exchanged passes on the right wing with the latter’s cross inch perfect for Ward who fired a first-time volley past Joronen from five yards out.

With chances at a premium for Fulham, Ross McCormack took matters into his own hands in the 37th minute. Picking the ball up in his own half, we looked up to see Lee Grant off his line and hit an audacious effort towards goal but the backpedalling Derby keeper gatherered from just under his crossbar.

Jeff Hendrick headed over a Ward cross in the opening stages of the second half. Russell then blazed over from a tight angle after jinking past Tim Hoogland following a misplaced pass by Williams.

Moments later, Fulham were level. McCormack won a free-kick which he took but his effort was charged down. The ball came back to McCormack who dinked in a cross which was controlled by Hoogland. He teed up Parker who hit a first-time shot from 12 yards which kissed the inside of the near post and nestled inside the net.

Derby should have gone back in front almost immediately but a stretching Martin could only turn Hendrick's cross over the bar from six yards out after the striker had been found unmarked in the area.

With Alexander Kačaniklić waiting to come on, Derby retook the lead when Bryson converted Russell’s first-time delivery from the left from six yards. Joronen could count himself unlucky after getting a hand to Bryson’s shot but seeing the ball squirm over the line.

And 60 seconds later it was 3-1. Martin was fed the ball on the edge of the box by Christie and he managed to bundle past Cameron Burgess before firing a shot past Joronen.

It was almost 4-1 minutes later as Ward’s cross was headed inches wide by Martin. Hoogland was then replaced by Kay Voser. Fulham’s final change saw Thomas Eisfeld come on for Patrick Roberts with 10 minutes left.

With three minutes remaining, Derby had a fourth. Substitute Dawkins raced into space but saw his shot come back off the far post. Martin was there, though, to prod the rebound into an empty net.

And Dawkins soon had his name on the scoresheet, scampering on to Hughes’ pass and firing past Joronen and in off the far stick.
