Dimitar Berbatov, right, scored a first-half brace on his Fulham home debut

Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov scored a brace on his home debut to guide Martin Jol's side to a comfortable 3-0 victory over 10-man West Brom.

The 31-year-old, making his first start since a deadline-day move from Manchester United, opened the scoring in the 32nd minute before adding a second from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time, with Steve Sidwell adding a third in the closing stages.

West Brom forward Peter Odemwingie was sent off in between Berbatov's strikes for violent conduct as Steve Clarke's side lost their first Barclays Premier League game of the season.

The second-half was noticeable for a string of superb saves from West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster as Fulham failed to add to their lead until the last minute when Sidwell volleyed home.
