Fulham struck twice in the second half to secure a comfortable passage into the second round of the EFL Cup with victory over Wycombe.

The Whites had the better chances of a goalless first half, while Marcus Bean fired narrowly wide for the League Two hosts after the break.

On-loan Chelsea midfielder Lucas Piazon finally gave Fulham the lead with a shot into the top corner from 25 yards.

Denis Odoi then headed in from a corner to see the Championship side through.

It was the second time in three seasons that Fulham have won at Adams Park at this stage of the competition.
