Sky Bet Championship: Fulham edge past Hull City to round off midweek action

13 September 2017

Fulham picked up their first home league victory of the campaign on Wednesday evening, defeating Hull City 2-1 at Craven Cottage.

Stefan Johansen’s second-half strike proved to be the difference for the Cottagers, who had led earlier in the game through Floyd Ayité.

They were pegged back at the start of the second period however, as Jarrod Bowen headed home from close range, continuing his goalscoring form which saw him pick up August's Young Player of the Month award.

After chances at both ends, it looked as though the two teams would head in at the break level — however, Ayité had other ideas.

The winger had the simplest of tasks as he tapped home Liverpool loanee Sheyi Ojo’s pinpoint cross at the far post.

It didn’t take long for Hull to level things up though, as, eight minutes after the restart, Bowen’s finish drew them level.

Slaviša Jokanović’s men would soon be celebrating once more and, on 63 minutes, Johansen scored what ultimately turned out to be the winning goal.

Ayité initially tried his luck at getting a second of the night, but after his spectacular attempt fell to the Norwegian, he made no mistake — scoring expertly with the outside of his foot.

That would be that in terms of goals, with the hosts rattling the crossbar in stoppage time through Yohan Mollo.
