Fulham Miss Out on Chance to Top League

Fulham missed the opportunity to cement their place at the top of the FA Premier Academy League Group A table after they lost 2-0 to Southampton at the weekend.

Jason Dodd’s Southampton side were deserved winners as they comfortably converted their chances to earn the win.

A goalkeeping error determined the opening goal of the match as Sam McQueen’s corner went straight into the net, passing through the goalkeeper’s hands on the way.

Corby Moore and Jake Sinclair caused Fulham all sorts of problems throughout the first-half and were both unlucky not to have doubled Saints’ lead.

The second goal came on 62 minutes as a well-worked move was eventually converted by Joe Curtis. Matt Young fed a nice ball into Sinclair who found Chambers and thus slotted in Curtis to score the winner.
