Fulham 3-0 Middlesbrough Highlights
Fulham took their unbeaten Premier League run to seven games with an impressive win over Middlesbrough.
The home side took the lead shortly before the break when Jimmy Bullard poked in from three yards after Ross Turnbull parried Bobby Zamora’s shot.
Danny Murphy made it 2-0 from the spot after referee Keith Stroud ruled Tony McMahon had handled the ball.
American Clint Dempsey rounded off the scoring when he slotted into the right corner from just inside the area.
Roy Hodgson’s men deserved their victory in a match that had clocked 20 minutes before the Craven Cottage crowd were given something to gasp about.
Those gasps came at the home end when first Andrew Johnson saw his swivel and shot deflected wide by Ross Turnbull for a corner. And then from the set-piece defender John Pantsil fluffed his lines when he headed wide from three yards at the far post.
Johnson, who survived a late tackle by Julio Arca, but looked lively throughout, forced Turnbull into making another good save minutes later with a low shot as Fulham pressed.
