Fulham Win Ugly at Craven Cottage

Fulham win 1 - 0 at Craven Cottage against Portsmouth tonight. This was an ugly win for the Cottagers. For most of the first half Portsmouth had the better control of the game. There weren't too many difficult saves for Mark Schwarzer, but Portsmouth definitely were pushing forward more than Fulham. The right back position was a real problem tonight for Fulham.

Stephen Kelly in the first half made several mistakes. The best scoring chance in the first half for Fulham was by Stefano Okaka. Unfortunately for the former Roma Striker he could not score on his shot at net.

Fulham played much better in the second half. Ironically, the play picked up when Stephen Kelly was replaced by Kagiso Digacoi. The goal of the game came from Jonathan Greening. A pass came to him which was deflected off of a Portsmouth player. He had a great opening to the net and scored.

The defense held on in the last 15 minutes to secure the win. Again, this was an ugly win which Fulham did not play well. It does not matter because in the end Fulham got the 3 points they desperately needed.
