Fulham (1) 4-1 (0) Hull City FAC Rnd04


Fulham teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon inspired Fulham to yet another cup success.

The 16-year-old, who scored when they beat Cardiff 2-1 in round three, repeated the feat yesterday and also made a goal in an incredible game which saw Abel Hernandez miss TWO penalties for Hull.

The Londoners qualified for the fifth round for the ninth time in 10 years in a game which home striker Chris Martin jeered by his own fans before silencing them with a goal.

Former Hull striker Sone Aluko smashed Fulham in front early on with a volley after Tomas Kalas had headed down Stefan Johansen’s free kick.

On-loan Martin then fired high over the bar and was booed by the Fulham supporters after signing a new contract with parent club Derby on Saturday and attempting to end his spell at Craven Cottage.

Aluko was tormenting his former employers and beat four Hull defenders before firing wide from a narrow angle.

Marco Silva had named a strong attacking line-up and they finally began to make their presence felt.

Adama Diomande fired inches wide of the post before Hernandez shrugged off Kalas and stung Marcus Bettinelli’s palms with a fierce drive.

A patient move then gave Hernandez another sight of goal but this time Kalas made a superb sliding block to prevent him scoring.

Fulham thought they had got a second just before half time but Sessegnon was adjudged offside after sliding the ball under Eldin Jakupovic.

Martin then crossed for Denis Odoi whose header was saved well by Jakupovic before Johansen fluffed the rebound.

And Hull were level four minutes after half time when new signing Goebel Evandro stooped to head in Andrew Robertson’s deep cross.

But they promptly capitulated in the face of fierce Fulham pressure.

Martin silenced the crowd when he slid the ball into an empty net after excellent work from Aluko and Sessegnon.

The Derby man then had a hand in Fulham’s third as his clever one-touch pass found the brilliant overlapping Sessegnon who applied the finishing touch.

The Cottagers still weren’t done and Johansen crashed in a fourth from the right of the area after Martin and Tom Cairney had set him up amid little Hull resistance.

Hull’s dismal afternoon ended in farcical fashion when Hernandez’s tame penalty was saved by Bettinelli after Kalas had brought down Robertson.

Bettinelli then pulled down Hernandez as he attempted to score from the rebound and referee Paul Tierney pointed to the spot again.

This time Hernandez opted for power over placement but Bettinelli pushed the ball over the bar to complete a miserable afternoon.
