A piece of Ivan Cavaleiro brilliance lit up the KCOM Stadium as Fulham edged out Hull in a scrappy affair on Saturday afternoon.

Cav's Curler Seals The Points

Saturday 11 January 2020 16:57

Main Action:

A piece of Ivan Cavaleiro brilliance lit up the KCOM Stadium as Fulham edged out Hull in a scrappy affair on Saturday afternoon. 

The start was a positive one made by Hull. Some confusion in the back-line caused by a raised flag from the linesman in a different phase of play meant Jarrod Bowen could slide in Tom Eaves who poked wide.

The majority of the first half of the first period was a frustrating one for the Whites. This was epitomised when Bobby Decordova-Reid earned a stern talking to for a trip when he felt he should’ve been awarded a free kick earlier in the move.

Huge shouts for handball followed as Bowen fizzed a ball across that struck Kevin McDonald’s upper body inside the area. Nothing given.

The ball was being surrendered in the wrong areas from a Fulham point of view. McDonald’s pass was intercepted which set Kamil Grosicki away, but he dragged his shot wide.

The moment of quality that had been lacking was provided by our newest permanent signing on 28 minutes. Trademark Cavaleiro cut inside to float a curler into the top corner to break the deadlock.

The goal rattled the hosts as their ball retention deserted them which was echoed by the fans. The remainder of the half suited Scott Parker’s men amply as they headed in with a lead.

The opening minutes of the half saw the crowd grow frustrated at the time the visitors had on the ball. Eaves won a foot race against Michael Hector and squared for Bowen whose pass was read by Denis Odoi.

The Tigers needed a goal and a pass between the lines was collected by Jackson Irvine on the turn whose curling cross evaded Eaves by the smallest of margins. The Whites responded. A beautiful kick from Marek Rodák started a move that allowed Anthony Knockaert to pull back. The dummy by Decordova-Reid evaded Aleksandar Mitrovic’s wavelength.

Josh Onomah had little to show for his shift in the engine role, but it was him that powered through the middle to launch a shot a few yards over the top.

Mitrović had few scraps to feed on and he was carded for a raised arm with the clock ticking down. Hull became more direct into the closing stages with a looping cross finding the head of Eaves which Rodák watched wide.

The big Serbian was then stretchered off in an altercation with Eric Lichaj into the closing ten-minutes. Rodák’s first meaningful save was needed deep into injury time as he clawed out Bowen’s glancing effort. The KCOM descended into delirium as a shot found its way into the net via a sea of bodies but for the linesman’s flag.

What That Means:

Fulham move one place to fourth with Nottingham Forest conceding late at Reading, and seven points from Leeds who lost to Sheffield Wednesday. 

Notable Talking Points:

  • Aleksandar Mitrović, Bobby Decordova-Reid and Tim Ream returned to the XI after the FA Cup win at Aston Villa.
  • Jay Stansfield featured on the bench for the first time in the league.
  • Ivan Cavaleiro scored just four days after his permanent transfer was confirmed.
