Fulham came from behind twice to claim a superb 4-2 win away at Barnsley on Saturday afternoon.

The last time Fulham found themselves at Oakwell was back in 2001 in a goalless draw. The Whites were looking for a more positive result this time around after their recent winless run and thanks to a great team display they did just that after Slaviša Jokanović’s men recorded a 4-2 win a Barnsley side who ended the match with ten men.

The home side drew first blood after Marley Watkins shocked the visiting defence by running through them before placing his shot past David Button.

Three goals in five minutes leading up to the break saw both sides go in with the scores level at 2-2.

Fulham went in to the second half guns blazing and Scott Malone managed to put his side ahead within minutes.

With 25 minutes left on the clock there was a massive sigh of relief from all those associated with Fulham after Chris Martin got off the mark to score his first goal for the Club.

The home side had the first chance of the game when they won a free-kick roughly 20 yards out. Ryan Kent stepped out to whip the ball on to the head of Watkins whose attempt was well saved by Button

Moments later Watkins found himself with the ball racing towards goal with no Fulham defender in sight. His composed right footed shoot easily found its way past the Fulham ‘keeper giving the reds an impromptu lead.

The Whites had their first real chance of the game 12 minutes in when they won themselves a corner. Lucas Piazon floated in a lovely ball which somehow escaped everyone – a huge let off for the home side.

The visitors came close again and Martin almost grabbed his first goal for the side. Denis Odoi whipped in a beautiful cross from the right hand side before meeting the head of the Scot but unfortunately couldn’t convert.

Soon after it was Fulham attacking again and Sone Aluko took the ball from the half way line and powered through towards goal before his right footed effort was picked up by the Barnsley number one.

The White’s finally got the goal they were looking for in the 37th minute of the game. Tom Cairney found Malone down the left wing who cleverly cut back before finding Piazon whose shot deflected over Davies and landed in the back of the net to level the scores.

Barnsley immediately replied when Sam Winnall found himself with plenty of space before unleashing his right-footed shot in to the back of the net via the post.

Fulham’s heads didn’t drop and they responded straight away. Stefan Johansen played a wonderful through ball towards Aluko who placed his shot past Davies to make it 2-2. An incredible three goals in five minutes.

On the first play in the second half the Whites somehow found themselves in front for the first time during the game. Malone whipped the ball towards the goal and it somehow eluded Davies to land in the back of the net. Whether or not the left back meant it will remain a mystery.

The home side found themselves with a free-kick just outside of the Fulham area after an Odoi foul. Adam Hammill crossed the ball in to the area and found the head of Winnall but failed to get his attempt on target.

With 25 minutes to go Martin finally secured his first goal for the club since signing. Malone placed yet another pinpoint cross and this time the Scot was there to nod home from close range.

Minutes later and tempers had flared. Josh Scowen came in with a very late challenge to Scott Parker. Mr Stroud immediately blew his whistle and issued marching orders to the Barnsley player.

Fulham continued to press and Aluko almost gave them a fifth after Parker played in a lovely ball to the attacker before hitting high and wide.

With ten minutes to go Malone almost grabbed his second of the game after a great cross from substitute Ryan Tunnicliffe. However Malone couldn’t quite convert and smashed his attempt over the bar.

The win ensured that the Whites remained unbeaten away this season and would take all three points back to South West London.
