    Time:90'
    • Fulham
    • Hull City
    • 90+4 Hull have a free-kick on the left which Giovanni will take. Headed away by Zamora and that's the final whistle! A comfortable win for Fulham, who rise to 12th but have two games in hand.
    • 90+4 Hull clear but Fulham win a corner off Sonko, which Gera jogs over at leisurely pace to take. McShane heads clear.
    • 90+3 Nevland gets in down the right now and he can cut it back to Zamora but blocked for a corner. One minute of injury time left.
    • 90+2 A Hull player is down, Mendy I think...
    • 90+1 Fulham counter from that, Zamora races towards goal and he drives it in low, Myhill can't hold on to it but it flies just beyond the advancing Nevland and Hull clear!
    • 90' Fulham clear the corner, it drops to Giovanni who rattles in a drive but blocked by Hughes! It comes back to Giovanni who shoots again but blocked by Hughes again!
    • 89' Altidore bustles into the box, holding off Hughes and powering a shot for the top right but blocked by Konchesky for a corner.
    • 87' Long ball to Zamora, Nevland is in support, an excellent first touch by Zamora to thread Nevland clear but he snatches at the finish and it trickles harmlessly to Myhill.
    • 86' FULHAM SUB: Nevland on for Kamara.
    • 84' FULHAM SUB: Gera on for Duff.
    • 83' Cries of delight from the home fans as Bullard is offside on the right.
    • 82' Hull have all-but given up now as even the Fulham fans get a touch bored. Mendy comes on for the Tigers in place of Ghilas.
    • 80' Duff swings it over AND DEMPSEY WITH A FREE HEADER BUT HE SENDS IT BOUNCING WIDE! Another brilliant chance for the Whites.
    • 79' Corner to Fulham on the right which Duff trots over to take...
    • 77' Zamora nudges Kilbane on the right, free-kick Hull.
    • 76' Good cross by McShane from the right which Schwarzer misses but Fulham clear their lines.
    • 75' Fulham counter, zipped straight to Zamora on the right, he plays it inside to Dempsey on the penalty spot, lovely first-time flick to Zamora, who holds off one challenge and must score but fires wide!
    • 74' Free-kick to Hull around 25 yards out but smashed straight into the wall by the heavily-booed Bullard.
    • 73' Fulham free-kick on half-way which Hangeland will send high into the box but the flag is up.
    • 72' A good two minutes of keep-ball from Fulham culminates in Duff driving low from the edge of the box, the deflection sends it into Zamora's path but he gets the finish all wrong, straight at Myhill. Should have been three.
    • 70' Free-kick to Fulham on the left, short inside by Konchesky and GREENING but he fires well over from the edge of the box.
    • 69' Schwarzer pumps it long. Hull have offered little this half, they look bereft of ideas, maybe the powerful Altidore can change things?
    • 68' HULL SUB: Hunt off for Altidore.
    • 66' Pantsil on the right, inside to Zamora on the corner of the box, lovely touch and flick to DEMPSEY WITH THE DRIVE INTO THE BOTTOM LEFT BUT INCHES WIDE!
    • 65' Hull are furious that was allowed, claiming offside. Zamora was definitely onside when the ball was played, although Kamara was a yard off. Different phase of play though.
    • 64' Fulham break at pace, Zamora races down the right, he is away from Dawson after a good long pass from Hughes, he drills it low across goal AND KAMARA IS THERE AT THE FAR POST TO MAKE IT 2-0!
    • 63' Duff touches it on to Zamora, who is in a good position on the right, but a ludicrously late flag from the linesman, who waited until Zamora touched the ball before declaring him offside.
    • 62' Kamara puts it high for Zamora, who is well marshalled by Kilbane. Zamora wants some kind of decision, but he was backing into Kilbane if anything.
    • 61' Long diagonal ball reaches Kamara on the left, but he is crowded out by Sonko and McShane and Hull get the throw in the end.
    • 60' FULHAM SUB: Greening gets his chance as Murphy limps off.
    • 59' Kamara needlessly rattles into Bullard, saying hello to his old pal.
    • 58' HULL SUB: Bullard comes on for Ghilas, and a section of Fulham fans boo their former hero. Which is a bit silly really, seeing as the entire Whites team was bought from other clubs, usually at cut prices as opposed to the whopping £5m Fulham got for a crock whose contract was set to expire...
    • 57' Fulham clear the corner but Konchesky inexplicably dithers on the edge of his own box and is dispossessed, forced to give away a corner which is headed clear. Kamara leads the counter, now Hangeland of all people, inside to Dempsey, there's a trip but it spins wide to Kamara who has got all the way across but it breaks down. Murphy will not be able to continue.
    • 56' Murphy limps off for more treatment, the magic spray seemed to do at least part of the trick as Greening gets ready. Hunt takes the corner for Hull, great ball and it seems to stick at the near post but eventually hacked behind for another corner.
    • 55' Murphy is in a lot of pain after twisting awkwardly. Looks like his knee...
    • 54' Dawson follows Dempsey to put out for a throw as Jimmy Bullard continues his warm up.
    • 53' McShane on the right after Marney cut inside, great low ball from the Irishman and it spins past Pantsil TO HUNT WHO IS IN AND MUST SCORE BUT HE SKIES IT! The ball bobbled to be fair, but that was an almost comical effort.
    • 52' Hull with a little spell of possession now, stroking it around nicely but then Sonko panics and puts it high, long and straight down the 6'5" throat of Schwarzer.
    • 51' Dempsey back defending heads out for a Hull throw.
    • 50' Almost a lovely move by Fulham but Kamara stumbles on the edge of the box just as Dempsey pinged it into him.
    • 49' Fulham pick up where they left off, knocking it around nicely but Konchesky's long pass is straight to Myhill.
    • 48' Good play by Fulham again as Duff and Dempsey combine, but Hull clear their lines just as the American threatened to pick his spot.
    • 46' Second half underway!!
    • - Here is a shot of Damien Duff racing away from Giovanni.
    • - More Dempsey as he battles with Stephen Hunt.
    • - Wanna see Clint Dempsey tussle with Ibrahima Sonko? Then click here! Way to hustle!
    • 45+1 Half-time then, Fulham lead 1-0 through Zamora's second league goal of the season and fourth in all competitions.
    • 45' Was Zamora offside when Duff hammered in that shot? Hull think so...
    • 44' Hughes plays it forward, knocked back by the chest of Kamara, great control by Duff WHO SPANKS IN A SUPER DRIVE BUT A GREAT SAVE BY MYHILL but it's loose and Zamora flies in TO HEAD IT PAST THE OUTSTRETCHED ARMS OF THE KEEPER FOR 1-0!
    • 43' More good play from Fulham as it's played long for Demspey who can knock down to Zamora and Sonko with an interception that Myhill picks up, surely a back-pass but no says the ref!
    • 42' Good ball from Konchesky, nodded on by Zamora and Baird is just beyond it, he gets his foot around it but Hunt is back in time to block.
    • 41' Konchesky swings in a superb cross for Dempsey but Zayatte flies across to head out for a corner.
    • 40' Murphy in a lot of space on the left, he cuts it inside to Zamora but his knock back isn't good for Duff, who loses the ball. Hull's counter is short-lived, Zamora now bursts forward but Zayatte slides in. Throw on the left wing.
    • 39' Pantsil on the right puts in a deep, testing cross that Sonko heads away with Dempsey ready to pounce.
    • 38' Hesselink gives away a free-kick on the Fulham left, deep inside the hosts' half.
    • 37' Ghilas breaks and Konchesky clips his heels, yellow card.
    • 36' Taken quickly by Fulham and there are bodies lining up at the far post but headed behind by McShane.
    • 35' Dawson booked for hauling down Duff on the right.
    • 34' Hull half-clear the corner and now it's Duff but Dawson is right into him and wins a free-kick too.
    • 33' Fulham still have it, Pantsil on the right, he wins a throw but they go back to Schwarzer. He hoofs it forward, half-cleared and it drops to DUFF WITH THE DRIVE put tipped around the post for a corner by Myhill!
    • 32' Fulham playing it about patiently, McShane robs Demspey though.
    • 31' Myhill looks long but off the head of Hesselink and out for a Fulham goal kick.
    • 30' The free-kick is taken quick and low to Pantsil on the right, a very good, flat delivery that lands on the head of Kamara but he gets the header all wrong and it goes well wide for a corner.
    • 29' Duff cuts in from the right but is tackled, although Hesselink fouls Baird and Fulham get a free-kick midway inside the Hull half.
    • 27' Free-kick to Hull after Zamora was caught offside. Not half as scrappy as one would expect of two sides near the bottom but at the same time barely any chances have been created.
    • 26' Duff now has it on the edge of the box after making a yard for himself following good approach play, but he fires straight down Myhill's throat.
    • 25' Zamora handles when trying to take it on the chest.
    • 24' Kamara has pulled wide and gets it between the left byline and the corner of the box, he digs out a fizzing dipping cross AND ZAMORA SLIDES CLEAR OF THE DEFENCE TO FINISH BUT HE POKES IT OVER! He was stretching for that but should have scored, great diagonal run across Dawson and Sonko to make that though.
    • 23' Good possession from Fulham again, Pantsil overlaps with Duff, who has switched wings with Dempsey, but Pantsil slips.
    • 21' Fulham get a corner on the right and Konchesky's delivery is perfect for a near-post flick but no-one gets on to it and the ball flies out for a throw. Pantsil flies in on Giovanni, doesn't make contact but a free-kick for intent.
    • 20' Still with Fulham as Dempsey has it now, Konchesky on the overlap but his cross is blocked and in the arms of Myhill.
    • 19' Murphy sends it into the box, a fist from Myhill but drops at the feet of Zamora now, he can't turn and it spins out to Duff but he can't shoot...
    • 18' The ref has a word with Dawson after he fouls Zamora while both rose for a header. It was a nothing foul, and not worth wasting the 30 seconds to have a chat about.
    • 17' Murphy drills it low to Duff on the edge of the box but it takes a bobble and he can't control it properly, cuts across the box instead, nice one-touch passing from Fulham but the visitors get it clear.
    • 16' Fee-kick to Fulham around 30 yards out on the right, Murphy to take...
    • 15' Giovanni gets it around 35 yards out, Hesselink is trying a diagonal run but the Brazilian goes it alone and hammers a poor drive about three yards over the bar.
    • 14' After some neat passing early on, neither side can string more than two balls together.
    • 13' Again aimed long for Hesselink but unless the delivery is more accurate (i.e. straight on is head), he is not making that.
    • 12' Baird clips Giovanni, who rolls around in quite frankly embarassing fashion. No card.
    • 11' Free-kick to Hull quite some way out but Giovanni is looking to swing it in... Great delivery to the far post and Hunt is there but nicked away by an acrobatic clearance from Pantsil.
    • 9' Ghilas wriggles forward, back to Giovanni as Hull still have it but McShane hoofs a poor cross out for a goal kick.
    • 8' Hull's turn now to knock it about nicely without actually threatening...
    • 7' Long ball aimed for Hesselink on the left but pace is not his forte and there is no support for the isolated Dutchman.
    • 6' Fulham still bossing the ball but with Kamara pulling wide and Zamora dropping deep to win higher balls there are little in the way of penalty-box options...
    • 5' Intercepted by Giovanni in the middle, now Ghilas, Dawson on the left but a poor pass intercepted by Kamara, who finds Dempsey and Fulham get a throw on the right wing.
    • 4' Hull haven't tuched the ball so far, although they do now as Hangeland's long ball flies to Myhill.
    • 2' Decent start from Fulham, keeping the ball well but mostly around half-way.
    • 1' Match underway at the Cottage!!
    • - Fulham have not drawn a Premier League match at home in 12 games. The Cottagers have failed to scored in three of their last four matches at home in the league.
    • - Hull won both league meetings with Fulham last season by one-goal margins. The Tigers' only away win in the league since October 2008 was the 1-0 win at Craven Cottage.
    • - Referee: Andre Marriner (W Midlands)
    • - Hull: Myhill, McShane, Sonko, Kilbane, Dawson, Zayatte, Ghilas, Marney, Geovanni, Hunt, Vennegoor of Hesselink; Subs: Warner, Altidore, Mendy, Halmosi, Mouyokolo, Bullard, Olofinjana
    • - Fulham: Schwarzer, Pantsil, Hughes, Hangeland, Konchesky, Duff, Murphy, Baird, Dempsey, Zamora, Kamara; Subs: Zuberbuhler, Kelly, Nevland, Gera, Riise, Smalling, Greening
    • - HULL TEAM NEWS: Jimmy Bullard makes his long-awaited return from injury to the Hull squad, but he has to take a place on the bench against the club he left before doing his knee again. Jan Venegoor of Hesselink starts alone up front, Jozy Altidore on the bench.
    • - FULHAM TEAM NEWS: This must be annoying for Jonathan Greening - defender Chris Baird gets a start in midfield in the absence of Dickson Etuhu, with Greening and Bjorn-Helge Riise on the bench. Johnson is still out, Kamara steps in. Otherwise, full strength for the Whites.
