Premiership game details 12:13.01.02

last updated Sunday 13th January 2002, 5:48 PM
Fulham continued to show improvement in the last third of the pitch with good goals by both Steve Marlet and Louis Saha and the possibility of European football next year is again being discussed.

It seemed at first that we were going to let the three points go north when a looping cross was allowed to be nudged inside the post by Cooper of Middlesbrough due to a mis-understanding between Edwin van der Sar and Sylvain Legwinski. But the Fulham revolution is still going strong and Jean Tigana's Black and White army pushed forward to get back into the game. Sylvain Legwinski then had to be taken off with just 36 min gone, seemingly suffering a muscle pull from an earlier clash, and was replaced by Louis Saha. The three man attack of Saha and Marlet outwide with Bazza Hayles in the centre changed the whole game and within minutes not only had Louis got his first goal since the middle of November Steve Marlet had his third in four outings.

The second half saw a continued assault on the Middlesbrough goal and further goals were only avoided by massed defensive activity by the Northerners. Ref Dean also played his part in keeping the score down by refusing Fulham penalty claims and breaking up our attacks with decisions he did not make when Boro players were the perpetrators.


An excellent days work by the Fulham squad and management with Steve Marlet knockers starting to prepare their hats for eating.

Other games
After Saturday's results were all in we went up one place as Aston Villa were able to beat Derby 2-1. Better news was that chelsea drew away at Bolton and Tottenham lost away at Ipswich. So we have a game in hand and are just 2 points short of European qualification.
COME ON YOU WHITES

WE ARE FULHAM CHAMPIONS OF THE NATIONWIDE AND THE PRIDE OF LONDON

The troubles for Derby continued as they had a man sent off in their 2-1 defeat at Villa Park. Darius Vassell put the home side ahead after 12 minutes with a neat finish only for Darryl Powell (23) to pull the Rams level.

Andy Cole marked his home debut with a goal on the stroke of half-time as Blackburn thumped 10-man Charlton 4-1 at Ewood Park. The England striker, signed from Manchester United for £8million at the end of December, had earlier combined to set up Tugay to fire Rovers ahead on five minutes with a curling effort from just inside the box. Jason Euell gave Charlton hope on 53 minutes, but Scott Parker was then sent off for a professional foul on Matt Jansen just after the hour, with Craig Hignett (85) and Jansen (89) completing the route.

Bolton twice battled back to earn a precious point against Champions League hopefuls Chelsea at the Reebok. Eidur Gudjohnsen netted against his former club to fire the visitors ahead eight minutes into the second half, but the advantage was short-lived as Michael Ricketts levelled with his 14th of the season on 56 minutes.

recent home results recent away results


Middlesbrough are now just a point above the drop zone after going down 2-1 to Fulham, despite taking the lead at Craven Cottage. Colin Cooper (nine) headed Boro in front from close range when he capitalised on a defensive mix-up, but substitute Louis Saha (40) levelled. A goal on the stroke of half-time from record signing Steve Marlet proved enough to give Jean Tigana's men all three points - and leave Steve McLaren's men with a real battle on their hands to stay up.

Leeds scored the fastest goal of the Barclaycard Premiership season so far when Alan Smith gave them a lead after just 25 seconds at St James' Park, but it was Newcastle who ended the day on top of the table once again. Smith played a sublime one-two with Mark Viduka to race clear and he made no mistake from 15 yards. As half-time was approaching, the Magpies were back on level terms when the hapless Michael Duberry (44 minutes) headed Craig Bellamy's cross past his own goalkeeper. Newcastle took a deserved lead when Kieron Dyer shot home on the hour. The visitors were then reduced to 10 men when Danny Mills was sent off with 20 minutes to go.
