Bristol City ended Fulham’s four game unbeaten run by securing a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon.

Bristol City ended Fulham’s four game unbeaten run by securing a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon. 

 

Josh Brownhill nodded in from an accurate cross by Niclas Eliasson to send the West Countrymen into the break with a 1-0 lead. 

 

Fulham began the second-half brightly but Famara Diedhiou finished a nice move at the back post to double the lead for the Robins. 

 

Substitute Aboubakar Kamara pulled one back for Scott Parker’s men after a Neeskens Kebano shot was turned toward him at the back post in the 85th minute.

 

Fulham were denied what looked like a certain penalty when Kebano was brought down deep in stoppage time but all appeals were waved away by the referee. 

 

Scott Parker made just the one change to the side he put out to defeat Swansea City as Anthony Knockaert replaced Kamara, there was also a return from injury for Steven Sessegnon who was named among the replacements. 

 

Bristol City were unchanged from the side which hammered Huddersfield Town 5-2 the previous weekend, former Fulham player Tomas Kalas missed out through injury. 

 

It was knockaert who squandered the first opportunity of the game, Joe Bryan floated in a pinpoint cross but the Frenchman couldn’t keep his connection down and the ball somehow evaded the goal in the third minute. 

 

Fulham threatened again in the ninth minute when Stefan Johansen released Ivan Cavaleiro with a nice ball over the top, he squeezed his effort past Daniel Bentley but Jack Hunt had enough time to clear it off the line with relative ease. 

 

Marek Rodák, the hero from Swansea, left his first mark on the game when he prevented Diedhiou’s header from point blank range after a good ball from Eliasson in the 15th minute. 

 

It was the Robins who took the lead however, an unmarked Brownhill headed in a good cross from Eliasson out on the left with 26 minutes on the clock.

 

It what was turning into an end-to-end game Denis Odoi was booked in the 40th minute for a foul on Andreas Weimann who was on the break down Fulham’s right flank. 

 

Fulham almost got themselves back in the game a minute after the break when Cavaleiro set Knockaert free down the middle, but he laboured over getting the shot off and Bentley blocked his effort. 

 

Five minutes later Bryan found Aleksandar Mitrović with a lovely cross off his right foot, unfortunately Fulham’s striker failed to keep his header down as it floated over the bar. 

 

Eliasson was booked in the 57th minute for tugging Knockaert back who was trying to counter. 

 

On the hour mark Mitrović blasted one just over the bar after a smart ball over the top from Johansen. 

 

Eight minutes later Mitrović was looking to get onto a great ball from Knockaert but his outstretched leg was inches away from connecting for a goal, immediately after Parker introduced Kamara for Josh Onomah. 

 

Knockaert went into the book in the 70th minute for a kick on Eliasson. Diedhiou doubled the visitors lead in the 76th minute when he tapped in Adam Nagy’s cut back. 

 

The Robins then replaced Eliasson with Callum O’Dowda, soon after, Johansen turned the ball into the Bristol goal from a corner but the referee blew up for a foul in the box.

 

Parker made his second change in the 82nd minute as Kebano was brought on for Cavaleiro. 

 

Kamara got one back for Fulham with five minutes to go when he slammed the ball in the back of the net following a good save by Bentley to deny Kebano. 

 

Fulham’s final substitution was then made with Cyrus Christie replacing Odoi while Bristol City swapped Nagy with Korey Smith.

 

Kebano was denied what looked like a stonewall penalty in the 93rd minute and then City replaced Hunt with Taylor Moore, the former being booked for taking his time to leave the field.

 

Christie delivered a great ball as Fulham were chasing the game and Kebano headed onto the crossbar in the 96th minute, and unfortunately for Fulham that was to be the last real chance of the game as City clung on for the victory.
