Fulham progressed to the Third Round of the Carabao Cup thanks to a brace from Aboubakar Kamara which was enough to defeat Exeter City.

Fulham progressed to the Third Round of the Carabao Cup thanks to a brace from Aboubakar Kamara which was enough to defeat Exeter City. 

 

The forward opened his account after four minutes of play and then doubled the Whites’ lead early on in the second-half to secure a 2-0 victory at Craven Cottage. 

 

André-Frank Zambo Anguissa had a couple of chances late on to extend Fulham’s lead but it wasn’t to be as Fulham saw off their League Two opposition.

 

Slaviša Jokanović made eleven changes to the team that faced Burnley on Sunday and handed debuts to summer signings Sergio Rico and Alfie Mawson.

 

Exeter had two debutants of their own with Jimmy Oates and Dara O’Shea both getting a start for the Grecians. 

 

Kamara opened the scoring when Exeter ‘keeper Christy Pym parried Cyrus Christie’s powerful effort straight to the Frenchman who slammed it home. 

 

Three minutes later, Ryan Sessegnon found some space from left-back and opened himself up for a long distance effort which was just marginally wide of creeping inside the far-post.

 

Matt Jay rattled the post with his strike after Ibrahima Cissé was caught in possession deep inside his own half with 15 minutes played. 

 

Archie Collins then got himself booked in the 23rdminute for a poorly timed tackle on Christie. 

 

Just shy of the half-hour mark Pym did well to get down quickly at his near-post to deny a low drive from Neeskens Kebano who positioned himself on the right-hand side of the box. 

 

With five minutes to go in the first-half, Kebano squandered a chance when he couldn’t fully get behind a bouncing ball in the Exeter penalty area and it floated over the cross-bar.

 

Fulham were afforded one more goal-scoring opportunity before the break when Sessegnon’s cross was flicked the wrong side of the far-post by Anguissa’s head.

 

Exeter made a change at the break with Lee Martin going off for former Crystal Palace youngster, Hiram Boateng. 

 

Kamara doubled his and Fulham’s tally for the night when he latched onto Stefan Johansen’s pass and slotted it past Pym in the Exeter goal in the 48thminute. 

 

The French forward was again causing problems for the visitors two minutes later, this time he collected a long ball and teed up Kebano on the edge of the box but his effort flew just over the bar.

 

The Grecians made a second change on 55 minutes when captain Lee Holmes went off for Jack Sparkes. 

 

Calum Chambers got back and made a crucial block on the hour-mark when Jay was lining up a shot approaching the Fulham box. 

 

Tristan Abrahams was shown a yellow card when he brought down the rampaging Karama from behind on 65 minutes.

 

A minute later, Pym pulled off a great save to deny Rui Fonte from close-range as the forward got his toe on Sessegnon’s ball. 

 

Exeter manager Matt Taylor made his final change of the night when Abrahams was replaced by Jake Taylor in the 70thminute. 

 

Kebano was stretchered off in the 73rdminute after he fell in the box when his shot was blocked, he was replaced by Luca de la Torre. 

 

As for Kebano, Mawson was given a standing ovation when he was replaced by Steven Sessegnon two minutes later. 

 

With time running out, Johansen saw his free-kick tipped onto the post by Pym, Anguissa was there to tap in the rebound but failed to control the loose ball as his effort went over the bar with three minutes remaining. 

 

Anguissa had another chance in the final minute of play when he hit a powerful shot at Pym from distance, the ‘keeper fumbled the ball but got back to his feet to reclaim it, soon after the final whistle was blown and Fulham progressed in the Carabao Cup.
