Tammy Abraham's last minute winner ended Fulham's run in the EFL Cup.

Fulham’s EFL Cup campaign came to an end on Wednesday night after a last minute goal from Tammy Abraham put Bristol City in to the next round.

Slaviša Jokanović made eleven changes to the side that drew 0-0 away to Wigan on Saturday and placed Ryan Tunnicliffe in charge of captaincy duties.

Five minutes in to the game and the home side almost got themselves an early lead.  Lucas Piazon, Scott Malone and Cauley Woodrow managed to work the ball in to the box with short, precision passing but Woodrow’s curled effort couldn’t quite find the target.

The home side had a golden-chance to put themselves ahead shortly after when Lasse Vigen Christensen found Tayo Edun on the opposite side of the pitch before gently passing to Malone whose curled effort went inches wide.

The Whites managed to draw first blood minutes later after Woodrow placed a wonderful cross towards the head of Piazon who managed to nod the ball past Ivan Lucic and in doing so, was awarded his first goal in Fulham colours.

Half way through the first half Stefan Johansen made a searing run through the centre of the pitch before playing a through ball towards Edun who appeared to be pulled down in the box before he could get to it. However Mr. Davies ignored the protests for a penalty and waved play on.

The Whites had a great opportunity to double their lead when they won a free-kick from 35 yards out. Woodrow stepped up but his effort ended up just wide of the post.

Fulham almost capitalised on a Bristol City mistake ten minutes before the break when Edun ran on to a loose ball before slotting it to Woodrow who had his shot well saved by Lucic.

The hosts came close again when Malone laid off the ball to the feet of Woodrow whose shot was well deflected by Aden Flint.

The visitors had their first shot on target on the stroke of half time and they made it count. Gustav Engvall played in Aaron Wilbraham who showed his composure by neatly chipping over Jesse Joronen to give his side an important equaliser.

Five minutes in to the second half and the Whites were awarded a penalty after Woodrow was fouled in the box. The striker stepped up to put Fulham in the lead but Lucic guessed the right way and made a terrific save to keep the scores level.

Moments later the visitors almost put themselves ahead when Luke Freeman’s free-kick looked destined for the top corner but Joronen was well placed to deny him.

The visitors came extremely close to putting themselves ahead with 25 minutes to go when Marlon Pack squared to Wilbraham who failed to convert his chance.

With 20 minutes to go Wilbraham will be wondering how he didn’t hit the back of the net after Callum O’Dowda crossed directly to him but somehow with just Joronen to beat, completely missed the target.

Moments later, de la Torre came close to putting the Whites ahead. After a lovely bit of trickery, Christensen found the feet of the youngster who unfortunately blazed over the bar.

The visitors kept pushing and went close to going ahead with ten minutes to go when Tammy Abraham ripped through the Fulham defence only to have his effort blocked by Josh Brownhill.

Bristol City should have scored again minutes later when Abraham played in Freeman. All he had to do was beat the keeper in front of him but Joronen had other ideas and made a magnificent save to deny him his opportunity.

With the game looking like it was about to go to extra time the impressive O’Dowda ran the ball down the left flank before crossing to the feet of Abraham who tucked the ball past Joronen to ensure Bristol City would be in the draw for the fourth round of the EFL Cup.
