  2. Fully deserved for Fulham

    FT: Fulham 2-1 Hull

    There can be no real arguments from Hull. Slavisa Jokanovic's Fulham were well worth the three points and the margin of victory could easily have been greater.

    Tigers keeper Allan McGregor made several brilliant stops to keep his side in it, but could do nothing about Fulham's two goals. Fulham are up to 13th, but it's very early in the season and so tight in the second tier.

    They are only two points off the play-off spots, having lost just once in the league.

    Hull's defeat is their fourth from seven, their second in a row and their fourth in five. Worrying.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    And that's that. Fulham have their first home league win of the season. A more than decent game, full of good attacking plan and thrills and spills.

  4. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    That almost sealed it. Home sub Yohan Mollo tries his luck from a tight angle, but the ball hits the frame of the goal via a touch from the excellent Allan McGregor.

    Was that Hull's final chance?

  6. Post update

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Wonderful defending by Fulham sub Denis Odoi. The defender has only just come and made his presence tell with a vital headed clearance.

  7. Post update

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Hull are pressing. Kamil Grosicki sends in a teasing cross but there's no one on the end of it and Fulham clear. We have five minutes of injury time to play.

  8. Post update

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    What a fine save this was by Tigers keeper Allan McGregor to keep his side in the game. Tim Ream the man denied.

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Now it's David Button's turn to earn his money, and the Fulham goalkeeper does so with a fine save from Frazier Campbell's low strike.

    It's a thrilling finish to the game here. Five minutes remaining.

  10. Post update

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    It's Fulham who are looking more likely to find the target again. Some nifty footwork by Stefan Johansen creates an opening for Ryan Sessegnon, but his cross is cleared.

  11. Post update

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Hull's final change of the night sees Adama Diomande replace Stephen Kingsley.

  12. Post update

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    That could have sealed it.

    Fulham sub Yohan Mollo miskicks when well placed and American centre-half Tom Ream sees his follow-up strike blocked by Allan McGregor.

    The Hull keeper has made a couple of stunning saves tonight.

  13. Post update

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    It's got a bit feisty at times. Fulham were not happy with a challenge by Frazier Campnbell on Tomas Kalas a few minutes ago, claiming an elbow on the on-loan Chelsea defender.

    We are into the final ten minutes at Craven Cottage.

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Fifteen to go plus injury time. and Hull sub Jon Toral shows there is plenty of life left in them yet, hooking an effort over the bar.

  15. CLOSE!

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    So nearly a third Fulham goal.

    Floyd Ayite thought he has his second of the night, but Hull keeper Allan McGregor pulls off a superb reaction save.

    That's probably kept his side in the game. Trailing 3-1 would have been a long way back the way this game has panned out.

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Another Tigers change. Forward Frazier Campbell is on. Nouha Dicko makes way.

  17. CLOSE!

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    But Fulham cannot take advantage.

    Stefan Johansen is narrowly off target with a fine, curling free-kick that dips just wide. The Tigers survive.

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Hull substitute Jon Toral has an instant impact... conceding a free-kick in a dangerous area just outside his own box.

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Fulham 2-1 Hull

    The first changes of the evening. Unsurprisingly it's Hull who react to falling behind for the second time.

    Jon Toral is on in place of the more defensively minded David Meyler.

  20. GOAL - Fulham 2-1 Hull

    Stefan Johansen

    It didn't take long for Fulham to regain the lead.

    Floyd Ayite is again involved, this time he miskicks with an overhead attempt, but Stefan Johansen is on hand to score with a fine outside-of-the-foot finish.

    Great composure by the Norwegian midfielder. As you were.
