Man Of The Match Result

Monday 11 April 2016 12:30

To cap a stellar Saturday for Emerson Hyndman, he was voted Man of the Match by the Fulham fans.

The American midfielder celebrated his 20th birthday with a start against Cardiff City, and he was a real handful in a slightly wider role on the left.

He looked to cut in whenever he could, and almost opened the scoring midway through the first half when he won possession, beat a man, and bent a lovely strike towards the far corner that was well saved by David Marshall.

He did eventually get the better of the Bluebirds goalkeeper in stoppage time at the end of the match, though, rifling in a first-time angled drive to score his maiden professional goal, and win the match for Fulham.

Hyndman – who was the comfortable winner of the award with 41.3 per cent of the votes – put in a strong overall display, with 84 per cent pass accuracy, two interceptions, five successful battles for possession, three dribbles and one key pass.

Fellow goalscorer Scott Parker was his closest rival with 25.2 per cent of the votes, while Rohan Ince and Richard Stearman also had their fair share of support with 14.1 and 10.7 per cent respectively.
