Fulham pitch being repaired
Dramatic scenes at the Cottage as large sections of the pitch are replaced

The Craven Cottage pitch is on the mend after some dramatic works to improve the playing surface.

Manager Jean Tigana and his assistant Christian Damiano criticised the surface after Fulham had picked up just one point from their last two home fixtures.

Players also voiced their concerns saying that the ball required at least two touches instead of one.

The old pitch, that has been in place for 14 years, was cutting up far too easily and interfering with Tigana's fast, flowing style of football. Cottage chief's acted swiftly to implement improvements and over the last week large sections have been completely replaced to ensure the rest of the season runs as smoothly as possible for the Whites.
