An incredibly frustrating afternoon saw Fulham beaten 2-0 at Stoke City on Saturday.

An incredibly frustrating afternoon saw Fulham beaten 2-0 at Stoke City on Saturday.

A below par first half led to the hosts going in front through Tyrese Campbell’s 16th minute strike, but the Whites were much improved after the restart.

Scott Parker’s men had all the ball and created a lot more chances than they had done in the first 45, without being able to make the all important breakthrough.

And the Potters took full advantage when they delivered a suckerpunch in the form of Lee Gregory’s late penalty.

Fulham began the game with a similar shape to the one we saw in the second half against Charlton Athletic before the international break, with three at the back and Anthony Knockaert and Ivan Cavaleiro in the wide positions.

Stoke went in front with the first chance of the afternoon with little over quarter of an hour played. It was route one stuff as a long thump up the pitch from goalkeeper Adam Federici was flicked on by Gregory, and Campbell managed to get beyond Tim Ream before finishing coolly inside the far post.

Things could have got worse 10 minutes later when Joe Allen was presented with a clear sight of goal after being slipped in by Campbell, but Bettinelli made a terrific save to deny the City captain.

Aleksandar Mitrović then had his name taken for tugging back Badou Ndiaye.

Stoke had another chance to double their lead after half an hour when Campbell broke through again. He was initially kept out by Bettinelli, and then saw his follow-up blocked by Alfie Mawson.

Fulham were struggling to find their rhythm but almost equalised on 39 minutes when Cavaleiro’s cutback ricocheted off a Potters defender only to spin agonisingly wide of the target.

After surviving a spell of pressure from the hosts at the start of the second half, the Whites went close in the 51st minute when Harry Arter’s well struck shot from 20 yards drew a first save of the game from Federici.

Tom Cairney then saw a long ranger of his own deflect behind as Fulham continued to turn the screw.

Bobby Decordova-Reid was next to try his luck, but he drilled wide on the hour mark.

Ndiaye became the first home player to enter the referee’s notebook, when he went in horrifically late on Arter. It was a nasty one, and Arter had to be replaced by Josh Onomah.

Stoke had really upped the aggression levels and Danny Batth quickly followed Ndiaye into the book for a body check on Cavaleiro. From that free-kick, a training ground routine ended up at Cairney’s feet, but his shot was too close to Federici.

Midway through the half Cavaleiro managed to pick out the unmarked Decordova-Reid, but the forward was unable to get the power on his header required to really trouble Federici.

Stoke were defending desperately but were almost undone by a Joe Bryan stunner which flew an inch over the bar.

Completely against the run of play, City won a penalty when substitute Scott Hogan skipped beyond Bettinelli and was clipped by the Fulham number one. Gregory then sent him the wrong way from 12 yards to double the lead and quash our momentum.

With seven minutes remaining, Neeskens Kebano was given a first runout of the season when he came on for Knockaert.

Mitrović almost halved the deficit on 87 minutes when he rose highest to Cairney’s left wing cross, but Federici got down to his header without too much trouble, ensuring he ended the day with a clean sheet.
