Fulham’s pre-season campaign began with a 4-2 victory over Crawley Town at Motspur Park.

Fulham’s pre-season campaign began with a 4-2 victory over Crawley Town at Motspur Park.

Mattias Kait, Floyd Ayité, Marcelo Djalo and Neeskens Kebano were all on target in the behind closed doors fixture on Saturday afternoon.

After a couple of early sighters for the hosts, it was Crawley who took the lead in the ninth minute when Ollie Palmer got on the end of Mark Randall’s through ball and slotted beyond Marek Rodák.

A Ryan Sessegnon cross picked out Aboubakar Kamara and the forward took it down well, but ran out of pitch after rounding the goalkeeper.

The equaliser came midway through the first half when Stefan Johansen – who wore the captain’s armband for the opening 45 – threaded an eye of the needle pass to Kait, and the Estonia international ruthlessly planted it into the far corner.

Kait was leading the line for the Whites and almost grabbed his second on 41 minutes. Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson volleyed over a cross but Kait’s first time strike was well saved.

Kamara then went close with a stunning 35 yard shot that was tipped over at full stretch.

Slaviša Jokanović changed all 11 players at half-time, and within five minutes his side were in front when Ayité bent a sumptuous free-kick into the top left hand corner from 25 yards.

And just before the hour mark we had a two-goal advantage when Djalo rose highest to meet Tom Cairney’s corner and direct a downwards header beyond the goalkeeper.

In the 72nd minute it was 4-1 when Rui Fonte played a cute ball into Kebano who made a yard of space and lashed home.

The visitors did pull one back almost immediately, though, when they outnumbered the Fulham defenders and Thomas Verheydt was able to lob Taye Ashby-Hammond.

They could have made for a nervy ending with 10 minutes to go, but Ashby-Hammond made a stunning double save to ensure it finished up 4-2 to the Whites.
