Fulham recorded their biggest win of the season after putting an impressive five goals past Huddersfield Town.

Slaviša Jokanović made four changes to the side that unfortunately lost 1-0 to Aston Villa last weekend and it paid off after Fulham recorded a comfortable 5-0 win – their first league win at Craven Cottage since the opening day of the season.

The home side found themselves ahead quickly in to the game after Stefan Johansen’s free-kick eventually found Chris Martin who composed himself before slotting home.

The Whites then doubled their lead ten minutes before half time when Tomas Kalas found himself on the end of a Scott Malone cross to not only score his first goal for Fulham but also his first goal in English football.

With minutes to go before the break the home side then scored another when Sone Aluko’s great cross found the head of Lucas Piazon who easily converted his opportunity.

With just under half an hour of the game to go Chris Martin scored a wonderfully taken penalty after Aluko was fouled in the box moments before Kevin McDonald also put himself on the score sheet.

The first real chance of the game came in the opening couple of minutes and it was Fulham who were close to going ahead. Chris Martin’s clever lay off to Johansen found its way to Piazon but his tame shot was well saved by visiting goalkeeper Danny Ward.

The Whites soon found themselves ahead after they were awarded a free-kick. Johansen whipped in a curling cross which found Ragnar Sigurdsson who carefully headed it down to the feet of Martin who shot ferociously with his right foot in to the back of the net.

The first real chance for the visitors came when Aaron Mooy fizzled a cross across goal which somehow managed to elude everyone before it took a deflection for a corner. The resulting corner almost ended in a goal but Tommy Smith couldn’t quite get his header on target.

Just past the half hour mark the visitors had a further chance to go level when Nahki Wells attempted an audacious volley from 35 yards out but the attempt went straight at David Button who comfortably saved.

The Whites clearly weren’t happy with conceding so many chances and with ten minutes left before the break they doubled their lead. Malone acquired the ball on the left wing before he sent a floating cross in to the box and Kalas was there to strike home an unbelievable volley making it 2-0 to Fulham.

The Whites weren’t content at going in to the break with a 2-0 lead and with under five minutes to go in the first half Aluko made a searing run down the left hand side before placing a cross on to the head of Piazon who easily put the ball past Ward to make it 3-0.

Just over ten minutes in to the second half and the home side came close to adding a fourth. Ryan Fredericks made a searing run down the right wing before passing to the feet of Martin who struggled to get his shot on target.

With half an hour left to go Fulham pushed once more when Piazon found Tom Cairney in space but his shot fizzed past the crossbar.

Moments later Fulham were awarded a penalty after Aluko was taken down in the box. Chris Martin confidently stepped up and placed his shot in the bottom left of the net – a well-executed penalty.

The Whites weren’t done there and minutes later the Whites found themselves 5-0 up. Aluko found the feet of the unmarked Kevin McDonald in the six yard box who rifled his shot in to the back of the net.

With 15 minutes left on the clock Aluko came close to putting his side even further in to the lead when he worked his way in to the box before his fierce right footed shot missed the target.

With just over five minutes to go Tim Ream almost made it six. McDonald’s right footed attempt was parried and placed in to the path of Ream who was unfortunate to not get himself on the score sheet as his headed attempt went over the cross bar to the relief of the Huddersfield fans.
