Oct 27 (Reuters) – Fulham suffered their fourth consecutive Premier League loss and remain mired in the bottom three as a brace from Callum Wilson helped Bournemouth stay sixth with an impressive 3-0 victory at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
The away side opened the scoring from the penalty spot after 14 minutes when Wilson was brought down inside the area by Fulham defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
The Bournemouth striker picked himself up and made no mistake striking the ball past Fulham keeper Sergio Rico for his fourth Premier League goal of the season.
Fulham’s Denis Odoi wasted a golden chance to equalise when he headed the ball wide of the post just before halftime and Bournemouth made them pay as talented youngster David Brooks added the crucial second after 72 minutes.
It was a fantastic counter-attack from Eddie Howe’s side as Wilson’s challenge on the halfway line allowed Bournemouth to break clear and Ryan Wilson showed great awareness to release Brooks who slotted the ball through the legs of Rico.
Fulham’s Kevin McDonald was shown his second yellow card of the game in the 73rd minute for a foul on Brooks and the hosts’ misery was compounded when Wilson added his second of the game after 85 minutes when he raced onto a pass from Ryan Fraser and beat the keeper at his near post.
The pressure will mount on Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic once again as they have now gone six Premier League game without a win and have only one win in the top flight this season.
