Fulham picked up their first three-points of the season with a 2-0 win over Ipswich Town at Portman Road thanks to goals from Neeskens Kebano and Rui Fonte.

Fulham picked up their first three-points of the season with a 2-0 win over Ipswich Town at Portman Road thanks to goals from Neeskens Kebano and Rui Fonte.

Kebano put the Whites ahead after a fine header following a Ryan Fredericks cross in the first-half.

Fonte then opened his account for the Club after the break and doubled Fulham’s lead with a fine finish following a Kebano effort which was parried away.

Head Coach Slaviša Jokanović made nine changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup with only Kebano and Sheyi Ojo keeping their places.

Ipswich Town have enjoyed their start to the season having won four out of four in the league, Manager Mick McCarthy kept the side unchanged from their last league victory, a 2-0 win over Brentford.

Fulham threatened from the start but the first real chance came when Fonte burst through and his flick fell to Stefan Johansen but the shot was blocked for a corner in the eighth minute.

Three minutes later Ryan Sessegnon beat his man down the left and burst into the box, he could have squared it for Fonte but decided to pull it back to Ojo whose shot was deflected wide.

Ipswich Town then had a big chance to score, off the back of a corner Martyn Waghorn had his shot blocked, sending David Button the wrong way, thankfully for the travelling Whites fans it went wide of the post.  

Following some nice link-up play from Tom Cairney and Johansen, Ojo was played through, he cut in on his left foot and only a fine reaction save from Bartosz Bialkowski could deny the winger.

Fredericks then had a long-range effort which went inches wide of the post and Dominic Iorfa was booked in the 31st minute for persistent fouling.

Fulham then wasted a huge chance on 32 minutes when Kebano back-heeled the ball to Johansen who was through on goal however from five yards out he was denied by the Ipswich goalkeeper.

The Whites then punished the Tractor Boys when Kebano put away a fine headed effort following a Fredericks cross down the right on 35 minutes.

In the 39th minute Fonte hit the near-post following a cross from Sessegnon, the ball was behind him but he somehow managed to get a leg to it before being denied by the goal frame.

Ipswich then broke and went down the other end, however after David McGoldrick found himself through on goal he struggled to get a decent shot away and was denied by Button from close range.

Joe Garner had a chance to level the scores within two minutes of the second-half but his header was caught by Button before it could make its way over the goal-line.

It was to be the visitors who would score next, Fonte smashed home after a beautiful turn and shot from Kebano was somehow kept out by Bialkowski, only for the Portuguese frontman to bury the chance on 51 minutes.  

Five minutes later Fredericks was dispossessed on the right and the ball found its way to McGoldrick who was escorted out wide by Tomas Kalas, the striker tried a shot from a tight angle but Button was up to the test.

Ipswich then sought to make a double change just before the hour-mark with Waghorn and Freddie Sears being replaced by Flynn Downes and Bersant Celina.

Following a knock, goal-scorer Fonte was replaced by Aboubakar Kamara in the 76th minute of the game.

Six minutes later Jokanović decided to replace Fulham’s opening goal-scorer as Kebano made way for Oliver Norwood.

With Fulham taking a lot of heavy treatment from the home-team the Whites used their final substitution as Denis Odoi replaced Johansen with one minute left to play.

Seeking a late miracle Ipswich brought on Tristan Nydam in place of Grant Ward in added time, but nothing came of it as Fulham left Portman Road with all three points.
