At half time, I think Fulham would have taken a draw. 1-0 down, and with debutant Dikgacoi sent off, it looked very bad.
But it seems that they came out fighting, and after a penalty taken by Murphy and a Gera goal on 58 minutes, Fulham were on top. It sounded (from the infrequent Radio 5 updates) as if Fulham were actually outplaying West Ham, despite having only ten men on the pitch.
But, it was not to be heroic victory, as West Ham managed to get one back deep into injury time. Still, it was another game in which Fulham showed great resolve to come back into a game that could be lost. This at least ends a run of three league games lost, and hopefully the international break will enable the team to regroup before the next game – at home to Hull on Monday 19th.
