It's Derby Day at Craven Cottage!

Fulham welcome Brentford to SW6 in what is quite possibly the biggest west London derby between the two sides in recent years, with both chasing promotion to the Premier League.

The hosts are looking to do that through the automatic route - they're 20 games unbeaten and a win today would see them stay in second place, above Cardiff City.

Meanwhile the Bees are hunting the play-off spots and need to win to keep their dreams of playing in the end of season showpiece alive.

Kick off is at 5.30pm today - we'll have all the build-up, team news and live match and goal updates as it happens right here!

GET IN YOU BEAUTIFUL BEES! Jozefzoon, in an offside position, whips it in and NEAL MAUPAY levels the scores.

Fulham sub

Christie is replacing Kebano... who also came on as a sub (??)

Marcus Bettinelli nearly threw the ball into his own net as a Yoann Barbet cross was going in. It stays out.

INCHES!

Cairney takes aim and shots, sending the ball flying *just* past the post! So close to number two!

GOAL! Fulham take the lead!

Mitrovic is still on fire!

Johansen picks the ball up, feeds Mitrovic whose first time strike curls past Bentley!

1-0!

Neal Maupay comes on for Sergi Canos

Kebano nearly nicks one

Kebano forces Barbet to play the ball only yards out and nearly nips in to take it

Johansen wastes a good break

McDonald clears a corner and Fulham break through Cairney - he plays a lovely ball to Johansen but he fluffs it

Yennaris shot deflected wide. From the corner, Sawyers has a shot blocked.

Sergi Canos goes on a great run but his shot is blocked by Tim Ream.

PEEP! We're back underway for the second half

Right, after that breather that everyone needed, we’re back for the second 45!

HALF TIME!

There’s the half time whistle! That game sparked into life at the end with both teams angry with the referee’s performance

Ollie Watkins through on goal and the referee blows for half-time. Staggering performance from the official

Bjelland volley goes just over.

Brentford should have a penalty as Barbet’s free kick is handled in the wall. Not given. The Frenchman is cynically taken out and Brentford have another free kick.

Denis Odoi trips Sergi Canos outside the box and escapes without a card.

Barbet has a free header and it’s over the bar. Big chance

Yoann Barbet heads a free kick from Ollie Watkins towards goal but it’s tipped over by Marcus Bettinelli

Brentford back on the attack and Sergi Canos’ strike stings the palms of Marcus Bettinelli

Chance Fulham!

Good save from Bentley denies Sessegnon! Lots of joy at the moment down this left

More good defending denies Fulham

Mepham is having a good game and he denies Fulham once more.

Odoi slaloms through the Bees midfield, playing in Fredericks who cuts it across the face of goal, but the Welshman is there to cut it out once more

Brentford win a corner through Sergi Canos

Great tackle denies Fulham

Fulham split the Bees defence with some more lovely football, but a last ditch effort from Barbet denies the hosts

Best chance yet for Fulham

Lovely football sees Fulham move up the pitch - Sessegnon leave Dalsgaard for dead and puts the ball in but Barbet clears

Florian Jozefzoon picks up a loose ball by Tim Ream - he cuts in and fires his shot that’s tipped over by Bettinelli

Fulham strike

Finally, Fulham get themselves going - Sessegnon’s strike is deflected behind for a corner though

Henrik Dalsgaard sends a shot into the Hammersmith End.

Uncomfortable start for Fulham

This has been an uncomfy start from the hosts - there’s been a lot of mistakes and Brentford are well on top

Brentford on the front foot still. Jozefzoon has a shot that is easy for Marcus Bettinelli to deal with
