Josh Onomah scored late to make it a week to remember for Fulham, beating Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon.

Josh Onomah scored late to make it a week to remember for Fulham, beating Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon.

Onomah’s strike in the fifth minute of added time bagged the three points after relentless pressure in the closing stages.

Scott Parker named an unchanged starting line-up to the team that beat QPR on Tuesday evening, with Neeskens Kebano returning to the bench after serving a one match suspension.

There was an early scare for Fulham after three minutes. Michael Hector’s attempted pass back was loose, allowing Jude Bellingham a free run on goal. He couldn’t get the ball out of his feet under pressure from the on-rushing Marek Rodák, and the ball was cleared.

Fulham were dominating possession in the early stages, just lacking that final ball. Tom Cairney’s slot through to Anthony Knockaert was the latest attempt to probe through the Birmingham defence, but there was slightly too much power on the pass.

In the 14th minute came the greatest chance of the game so far when Birmingham hit the woodwork twice in quick succession. Jérémie Bela’s whipped cross took a goalward deflection forcing Rodák to parry it onto the post, before Bellingham’s headed rebound came back off the bar.

Denis Odoi was booked in the 34th minute for a tug-back on Daniel Crowley who was breaking down the right. The resulting free kick was looped in from deep but came to nothing.

Cavaleiro was trying to force the issue now, and just before the 40-minute mark made another surging run inside. His one-two with Harry Arter was slightly off this time though.

Cyrus Christie fancied a repeat of Tuesday night’s belter against QPR, finding himself in a pretty much identical situation on 45-minutes, but this time his powerful shot was blocked.

Parker decided it was time for a change at half-time, Joe Bryan entered the field in place of Denis Odoi.

Anthony Knockaert played in a smart low cross from the right on 55 minutes. Arter took it, swiveled and got a shot away, but Gary Gardner was there to block and clear the danger.

Soon after and Fulham went close again. Tom Cairney’s cross took a wicked deflection and almost found itself flying over Lee Camp in the Birmingham goal before drifting just wide

Onomah came on for Arter on the hour mark, looking to add further threat from the midfield.

Knockaert wriggled through the middle, cutting inside onto his preferred left foot before stroking his shot narrowly wide as Fulham grabbed the bull by the horns in search of the advantage.

Knockaert was at it now. Cavaleiro’s low driven cut-back from the right found the Frenchman, but his shot didn’t have enough power and was easy for Camp.

With quarter of an hour left to play Joe Bryan delivered a quality cross, which gave Knockaert yet another chance. His shot hit the side netting from close after Camp closed him down.

Fulham were again dominating possession as the game remained in the Birmingham half. Substitute Onomah tried his luck from range shooting from 30 yards and Camp had to be aware as the ball skimmed off the surface.

We were knocking on the door now, with a hammer. Bryan blasted from 35 yards before Bobby De Cordova-Reid’s shot on the rebound was heroically tipped over from Camp in the latest assault on Birmingham’s goal.

In the final seconds the relentless pressure finally paid off. De Cordova-Reid took it inside down the right before slotting it through to Harrison Reed. The midfielder had the presence of mind to calmly turn it back to Onomah, who steered it into the bottom left for a last-gasp winner.
