Fulham fought valiantly but were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

Fulham fought valiantly but were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

 

It was a Michael Obafemi goal which secured the win for the Premier League side but the hosts pushed them all the way. 

 

Bobby Decordova-Reid hit the crossbar in the first-half and Marek Rodák produced some fine stops in the Fulham goal throughout the match. 

 

Scott Parker made nine changes to his starting XI, handing a debut to Josh Onomah and a first start to Decordova-Reid. 

 

There was a youthful look to the bench with Denis Odoi the only recognised first team regular named among the replacements. 

 

Southampton named a strong side with regular Premier League starters James Ward-Prowse, Nathan Redmond and Pierre Hojbjerg all featuring from the offset. 

 

After some fine link-up play down the left between Aboubakar Kamara and Onomah, Matt O’Riley was teed up with a shot on the edge of the box, however he struggled to keep his effort down on 5 minutes. 

 

Kamara then showed the Craven Cottage crowd his trademark burst of pace and gassed past Kevin Danso, the Austrian resorted to tugging him down and taking a yellow. 

 

From the resulting free-kick Decordova-Reid hit the crossbar, and then Cyrus Christie had his header turned behind by a fine reflex save from Alex McCarthy. 

 

In a hectic passage of play Ward-Prowse was booked for a high foot on Joe Bryan in the eighth minute. 

 

Luca de la Torre burst through the Saints defence in the 19thminute and fired off a low drive from the right which narrowly missed the back post as the hosts remained on the attack. 

 

As the visitors grew in confidence they looked to exert their Premier League experience on the game and Rodák had to make a solid save from Cedric Soares’ cross to clear it from the path of two lunging Saints. 

 

With ten minutes to go until the half-time whistle, Kamara, Decordova-Reid and de la Torre teamed up to create a shot for the Cardiff loanee, however he sliced his effort. 

 

In the 40thminute Cedric released Redmond who was thundering toward the Fulham goal, however he cut in and his shot deflected off a white shirt for a corner. 

 

Just before the half-time whistle Redmond threatened again, but with the same outcome, he cut in from the left and this time fired his effort high and wide, no trouble for Rodák. 

 

Stefan Johansen received a yellow card in the 47thminute after he blatantly brought down Sofiane Boufal on the charge. 

 

Ward-Prowse then blasted his free-kick over the bar, not for the first time in the match. 

 

After a loose pass from Maxime Le Marchand, Rodák stepped up and produced a fine stop one-on-one to deny Romeu in the 53rdminute. 

 

Shortly after, Redmond wasted another opportunity, heading wide from a Ward-Prowse free-kick as the visitors began to look more and more threatening. 

 

The deadlock was eventually broken in the 57thminute when Obafemi turned in Redmond’s pass after he was one-on-one with Kevin McDonald out wide. 

 

On the hour mark Jan Bednarek was substituted for Maya Yoshida.

 

McDonald was forced into a couple of solid last ditch tackles before goal-scorer Obafemi was replaced in the 68thminute by Danny Ings.

 

There was another yellow card in the 71stminute when Le Marchand was booked in the build-up to a Bryan foul just outside the Fulham box. 

 

The Saints were forced into their final change in the 76thminute when Redmond limped off aided by medical staff, and on came Shane Long. 

 

Making his first start of the season, Rodák produced another fine save to deny Ings in the 79thminute from ten yards out. 

 

Parker made his first change in the 80thminute when Tyrese Francois replaced Johansen.

 

With eight minutes to go Decordova-Reid had a powerful effort deflected just wide of the near post before Rodák denied Ings again in a one-on-one situation from close range. 

 

Shane Long was the latest Saint to spur a glaring chance in the 89thminute when his shot from inside the box curled wide of the top hand corner of the goal. 

 

There were two late debuts for Fulham as first Ben Davis replaced de la Torre and then Martell Taylor-Crossdale came on for Kamara but the hosts were unable to find a crucial equalising goal and bowed out of the Carabao Cup.
