Man of the Match Result

Tuesday 27 February 2018 09:15

Tim Ream’s imperious display against Wolverhampton Wanderers has seen him win a fourth Man of the Match award of the season.

It was a two-horse race for the accolade alongside Aleksandar Mitrović who caused no end of problems for the Wolves backline, with the two players receiving 78 per cent of all the votes between them.

Of that, Ream claimed 42.1 per cent, to his teammate’s 35.9, denying Mitrović a second Man of the Match award in a week following his performance against Bristol City three days prior.

Matt Targett (nine) was the only Fulham player to win possession more often that Ream (eight), while the American was also successful in three aerial duels, made two tackles, two interceptions, and went on two completed dribbles.

His fine evening's work was perhaps most plainly evident with five minutes to go when he showed a good turn of pace to catch Benik Afobe who seemed to be in on goal, before timing his lunge to perfection to block the striker’s effort.

It was a battle between Ryan Fredericks, Tom Cairney, Kevin McDonald and Ryan Sessegnon for third place in the vote, with Freddo receiving a handful more votes than McDonald to take bronze with 5 per cent of the ballot.
