Fulham welcome Newcastle United to Motspur Park for their Premier League 2 game this afternoon as Pater Grant's side look to continue their fine run of form in the competition.

The U23s have won their last four Premier League 2 games on the bounce, with their last game coming in the shape of a thrilling 4-3 victory over Southampton on Monday.

Newcastle, meanwhile, sit in 9th place in the division and have lost their last four games, with their latest defeat coming in a 1-0 home loss to Wolves.

The last matchday against Southmapton saw Peter Grant's side field three members of the Fulham first team, in Jordan Graham, Marcelo Djalo and Rafa Soares and today's team could give an indication of who may feature in the Championship clash against Millwall tomorrow.

Kick off is at 2pm and we'll have live updates throughout the game.

Four minutes added on

No real attacking threat about Newcastle

Newcastle have hardly threatened Fulham - it’s been a good defensive display from the hosts but it’s been aided by a lacklustre Newcastle forward line who have barely threatened

Mollo is fouled and decides he wants the free kick

Another Newcastle sub

Mo Sangare comes on for Dan Ward with around 24 minutes left

Mollo and Thorsteinsson get in one another's way

Everyone thought it was in as Roberts is free at the back post - he heads across goal towards the far post but Atkinson is there to clear off the line

The Icelandic youngster has been quiet in this game but he’s just played the pass of the game across the pitch, straight to Mollo’s foot

Sub for Newcastle

Fernandez is off for Newcastle here and is replaced by Yasin Ben Elmhanni

Another slip from Ashby-Hammond

GOAL! Fulham take the lead, 1-0

And there is the opener!

The ball comes back into the middle and Elstone pokes it past Woodman - Newcastle try to clear off the line but it’s in vain and the ball ends up in the net

Best chance of the game so far!

What a chance for Fulham!

Mollo is the outlet again as he break through the middle and Fulham are three-on-two - he picks out Elstone but Woodman is out quickly and denies him!

Another Newcastle chance

Newcastle are getting chances in this game, but the Fulham defence are limiting them to long distance strikes which aren’t troubling Ashby-Hammond at all

How's Mollo doing?

It’s been an average performance for Mollo so far - he’s been largely used out on the right wing but has drifted into the middle from time to time, but without any real effect.

He’s shown a couple of nice touches but hasn’t really troubled the Newcastle backline much in the first period

Davies is down being sick

It looks Davies is down in the Fulham penalty area being sick - he’s heaving badly and there’s a stop in play
