Quick Thoughts: Fulham 1 Blackburn Rovers 0

With Andrew away, I cover the game as Fulham traveled to Blackburn for their last game before the international break.

Lineups: Nothing unexpected from the Fulham side as Jokanovic makes 11 changes. Blackburn's side looks relatively week after loosing  Shane Duffy. Fulham target Ben Marshall started for Blackburn.

First Half:The first thirty minutes were very boring with neither side threatening considerably. On 36, Kebano had a wicked strike tipped over, ut after that things reverted back to the old ways.

Second Half:As soon as the second half started, there was new life in the game. Blackburn started well creating a couple chances for themselves. On the 50th minute, Matt Smith had a good chance but could only find the keeper. Scott Parker picked up the first card of the game on the 68th minute and Matt Smith went off for Woodrow in the 70th.

Parker came off for Jozabed in the 78th a Fulham looked to get a winner. Fulham were pushing on and on looking for away to get the winner and send their fans home happy. Christensen comes on for Kebano and in a couple seconds Fulham should have been given a penalty. Cairney slides a ball out to Christensen in the 94th and the ball comes in and Cairney SCORES. Fulham have snatched the three points from Blackburn.

In the end, if we are going to get promoted we have to have wins like this. It may not have been as clean as we prefer but nobody is complaining. 5 games 11 points, this Fulham team looks to be going places.
