Fulham 0-1 Millwall

Martyn Woolford bagged a first-half winner as Fulham slumped to a home defeat against Ian Holloway's men.

The Cottagers lost for the second successive week as Woolford struck the only goal of the game 12 minutes into the London derby.

Felix Magath made four changes from the side that lost at Ipswich last weekend, with summer signing Ross McCormack relegated to the bench due to his poor fitness levels.

Fulham made a bright start and Thomas Eisfeld was unfortunate to see his well-struck shot pushed away by David Forde.

However, the visitors took the lead on 12 minutes. Ricardo Fuller’s cross took a nick off Scott Parker and Woolford was there to slam the ball into an empty net at the back stick.

Jesse Joronen did well to tip over a Scott Malone volley as the Lions came close to a second, while at the other end, Cameron Burgess had a header clawed away by Forde.

Magath brought on McCormack at the break and the £11million man made an immediate impact when he played in Hugo Rodallega, but Forde was equal to his effort.

Joronen kept Fulham in the game when he denied Malone with an outstretched right leg.

And it was all one-way traffic after that as the hosts camped themselves in the Millwall half.

Forde save at the feet of McCormack, Alan Dunne cleared off the line from Rodallega and sub Patrick Roberts saw a shot well-saved.

Substitute Magaye Gueye should have wrapped up victory for the Lions late on when he was sent in the clear, but Joronen stood up tall to beat away his effort.

However, they didn't need it as the visitors returned to south-east London with the points.

Fulham: Joronen, Hoogland, Bodurov, Burgess, Stafylidis, Hyndman, Parker, Christensen (McCormack 46), Eisfeld (Roberts 61), Williams (David 77), Rodallega.
