Fulham extended their lead at the top of the Championship with a comfortable 3-0 victory against Millwall at Craven Cottage.

The away side threatened early on when Mason Bennett’s ninth minute cross was met by Maikel Kieftenbeld but the Dutchman’s effort was poor.

Despite dominating the ball, Fulham struggled to break through a stubborn Millwall backline, limited to efforts from distance.

However, the home side eventually found the opener just shy of the half-hour mark as Aleksandar Mitrovic tapped home Neco Williams’ deflected low cross from six-yards out.

The opener allowed Fulham to settle and turn the screw on Millwall, who struggled to get out of their half for the remainder of the opening 45 minutes.

The one way traffic continued in the second period with Mitrovic doubling his tally on 50 minutes – this time reacting quickest after Bartosz Bialkowksi denied Fabio Carvalho.

Millwall then missed a number of chances at 2-0, both Jed Wallace and Benik Afobe failing to convert to give the Lions a lifeline.

And Fulham sealed their victory on 87 minutes when Bobby De Cordova-Reid was on hand to tap in Harry Wilson’s scuffed effort.

Key Moment

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s second goal so early after half-time ended the game as a contest.

Moan of the Match

Little to moan about for the home side, while the visitors will definitely wish their attackers had some of Fulham’s killer instinct.

Talking Point

How much will Millwall rue Jed Wallace’s missed effort on 69 minutes? A goal could have made it a tight final 20 minutes.

Man of the Match

Aleksander Mitrovic – the Serb now has more goals this season (30) than Millwall collectively (29).

Referee Watch

Matthew Donohue (Greater Manchester) – quick to go to his pocket on a number of occasions for what looked like dubious yellow cards.


A subdued London derby as the result felt all too predictable. The Millwall fans travelled in their numbers but were given little to shout about.


It’s somewhat of a victory parade for Fulham whose promotion charge marches on. For Millwall, it was a lesson in taking chances against a superior side.
