Bristol Rovers 1 Fulham 6

Fulham's reserves are just one point away from clinching their League title after thrashing Bristol Rovers 6-1 on Thursday.

The second-string faced Rovers on Thursday afternoon in a match which had been postponed twice before, and stormed to a convincing victory.

Eddie Lewis scored the opener following a classy back-heel from young Calum Willock and Fulham never looked back.

Willock went on to complete a fine hat-trick, and that could be enough to earn him a place on the bench in the final game of the season at Grimsby on Sunday.

Paul Peschisolido and Zat Knight were also on target.

The second-string now face Brighton at Motspur Park next week in their final match of the season needing only a draw to clinch the Avon Insurance Combination title.

Thursday's squad included Kieran McAnespie, who has returned to Fulham from a loan spell at Hearts in Scotland having failed to earn himself a permanent move there.

Fulham: Hahneman, W Collins, Trollope, Morgan, Neilson, Sahnoun, Betsy, Peschisolido, Moller, Willock, Lewis.

Subs: Hammond, Thompson, Hudson, Knight, McAnespie.
