First Division Results & Stats - 17.02.01

last updated Saturday 17th February 2001, 7:23 PM

Fulham Football Club are the top club in the Nationwide league.

Fulham win again through a quality move involving Luis Boa Morte and ending with Louis Saha knocking in his 24th goal of the season. After that the Super Whites played some excellent football with Karl Hienz Riedle, sub for Bjarne Goldbaek, appearing to score but the Ref deciding the ball had not crossed the line.

The repaired section of the pitch seemed drier, flatter and greener but as most of the joints were showing, due to shrinkage of the turfs, the ground staff will be happy that we have two away games on the trot.

The Ref today seemed happy to let anyone in the Forest team tackle our strikers from behind, but thought Luis Boa Morte going down in the box while being manhandled deserved a yellow?

The Fulhamweb prediction for this match was 3-1 to the Cottagers with a crowd of 16750 the final numbers were 1-0 in front of 17425.

As you can see below Birmingham won, which puts Blackburn under pressure, and Watford lost, again.

Say ... We are top of Division One after just over half of the campaign, have lost only two game, have the best goal difference and the leading scorer in the Premier and Nationwide leagues.
