It was a long time coming, but Bobby Zamora has finally found the net again in a league game.
The striker's goal against West Brom at Craven Cottage on Sunday was his first since the September win against Bolton and only his second of the Premier League campaign.
Although he netted in the 4-2 FA Cup win at Kettering, the former West Ham target man was unable to find the net for 22 consecutive matches until his lucky break this weekend.
He missed a sitter in the first half from a neat Simon Davies nod-down and the pressure appeared to be getting to him. There were even a few murmurs of discontent from home fans.
But that all changed early in the second half when Zamora tapped in from three yards after Andy Johnson had miscued a John Pantsil cross into his path with a header.
Such was the relief that even Fulham backroom staff were on their feet cheering the striker's goal. Confidence visibly lifting, he went close to adding t his tally with a drive just over the bar and when another goalbound shot of his rebounded off keeper Scott Carson, Johnson was on hand to apply the finishing touch.
A 2-0 win barely did justice to Fulham's overall superiority against the division's bottom club. they hit the woodwork four times in a one-sided romp.
