Fulham end Norwich City’s cup dreams

Fulham Under-18s 3, Norwich City Under-18s 0: A goal in the first half was followed by two after the break as City’s Academy side exited the FA Youth Cup at the fourth round stage at Craven Cottage on Friday night.

Coach Ricky Martin was without the services of Jed Steer, who was called up to Paul Lambert’s first team squad for today’s clash with Cardiff following Declan Rudd’s jaw injury.

It was the home side who held the upper hand for the majority of the first half and it needed a good save from Remi Matthews to deny Ronnie Minkwitz on the quarter hour mark, while three minutes later a goaline clearance from Remy Gordon thwarted Brister.

The home side opened their account on 23 minutes when Alex Brister picked up a poor clearance to fire the ball into the bottom corner.

Ten minutes later Jack Werndley fired over from a good position while on the stroke of half-time, after a good run from Ryan Oakley, Sam Kelly saw a shot blocked by the Fulham keeper.

City had a couple of early second half free-kicks, with Matthew Ball seeing his effort blocked while Gordon saw his shot saved by the Fulham keeper. With 69 minutes gone Fulham doubled their advantage when Kerim Frei had a simple tap in from inside the six yard box and seven minutes later the game was put beyond City’s reach when Marcello Trotta sent in a shot that went in off the inside of the post.

• City: Matthews, Barker, Toffolo (Stephens, 78), Brindley, Jones, Gordon, Oakley, Dobbs, Werndley, Ball, Kelly (Loza, 45). Subs not used: Hewitt, Florence, Hall-Johnson.

Fulham - The Nervous Eight!
Wigan away could be a crucial fixture.

We`re currently out of the relegation picture but in the strange situation whereby if Wigan were to beat us today we`d tumble back down into the relegation places.

The compressed nature of the Premier League may provide fantastic entertainment for the casual football fan but for those clubs in the bottom half it makes for nervy times.

Ahead of what is a relegation scrap with Wigan, Mark Hughes has warned that there is no room for complacency at the foot of the table and warned that there are numerous clubs who could be in for an end of season fright, when he commented to the press,

"The relegation battle could go right to the end with maybe even or eight clubs still involved."

"The clubs who have come up are stronger than in other years, while the top teams have been dropping points."

Hopefully, by the time May comes around, we`ll be well clear of the bottom half of the table.

Fulham - Hughes is Dead Right!
It doesn`t matter one hoot just how well Fulham play!

It wouldn`t matter if we enjoyed a none-goal thriller up at the DW Stadium this afternoon, you`d still find Fulham tucked away at the back end of Match of the Day tonight.

It`s something that irks us and it is something that Mark Hughes has also noticed. Ahead of our battle with Wigan this afternoon, Hughes has spoken out on the subject and cited the fixture, last Saturday, as the perfect example, remarking.,

"Maybe with the number of draws we`ve had this season our games are going to migrate to the end of Match of the Day."

"But we were the top scorers in the FA Cup, the only team with a player who scored three and we didn`t get the attention other teams did."

We`re not being paranoid are we?
