Full Time: Fulham 2-0 PNE

Preston were unlucky to go behind, David Nugent heading the ball on at the near post, Sterling the ball into his own net.

Fulham got their second at the death, PNE pushing for an equaliser at a corner, Aboubakar Kamara was able to break with the ball, covering most of the pitch before squaring to Cavaleiro who wasn't able to capitalise, but Kamara was.

Not a happy hunting ground

In the last four trips to London, PNE have only won once, although that win did send them top of the league. 

The players have finished their warm ups

Not long now at Craven Cottage, both sets of players back in the changing rooms. 

Handshakes are being done and we're edging closer to kick off.

PNE and Fulham have switched sides pre-game, meaning PNE will attack their own fans first half. 

Brad Potts gets the game underway!

The first chance of the game goes PNE's way, Barkhuizen made way down the wing, he squared it to Potts and his shot was blocked. The follow up was also by Potts on his left foot but again it was blocked, this time for a corner. 

Joe Bryan can't continue so he is replaced by Cyrus Christie.

Johnson's corner is poked on at the near post by Nugent and Maguire is offside for the tap in.

Browne volleys at goal

Barkhuizen takes a quick throw in to Nugent who lays it back down the line, the winger crosses to the far post and Browne can't quite connect properly on the volley.
