Fulham beat Newcastle United 3-0 on Friday afternoon, Michael Elstone grabbing a brace.

Fulham beat Newcastle 3-0 at Motspur Park on Friday afternoon, Elijah Adebayo scored to increase his season tally, and provided two assists for Michael Elstone.

Elstone broke the deadlock in the eighth minute of injury-time in the first half, and it took less than a minute into the second half for Adebayo to stretch the lead. Elstone added the icing on the cake with 20 minutes to go.

Fulham came into this match in fine form and were looking for their fifth consecutive win in the Premier League 2.

Newcastle applied early pressure down the left hand side through Victor Fernandez, he attempted to curl shots in from outside the area.

Eight minutes in Adebayo received a through ball and flicked it past the defence to put himself in through on goal, but Freddie Woodman raced off his line to extinguish the attack.

Both teams were venturing forward, 20 minutes in the Whites were working their way through the Magpies’ defence, focusing down the right.

Aron Davies looked like he had put Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson through on goal over the top, but the linesman’s flag went up.

The Whites went the closes 21 minutes into the match, Thorsteinsson slipped Adebayo in, he cut it back for Elstone who shot for the bottom left forcing a good save from Woodman.

Newcastle then had a good spell in the game, Davies made an important block to keep the match level, before Rob Atkinson cleared a dangerous low cross from the 6-yard line.

In the eighth minute of added time, Fulham made the breakthrough. Thorsteinsson passed the ball out wide to Adebayo, he crossed into the box and Elstone poked the ball on goal and into the back of the net.

Straight after half time the Whites started where they left off. Thorsteinsson with a piercing through ball found Adebayo who raced through on goal and slotted the ball under the keeper to double the lead, and to take full control of the match.

Newcastle went close 62 minutes in, Atkinson was called into action to clear off the line.

Eight minutes later and the match was won. Adebayo raced down the right hand side, looked up and saw Elstone sprinting into the box.

He picked out his man and Eltone struck the ball first time into the bottom left corner for his second.

Fulham were able to see out the match without conceding, Luca Ashby-Hammond made a very good save from close range before the 90 minutes was up.

That win made it five league wins in a row for the Whites.
