Martell Taylor-Crossdale scored a first-half hat-trick as Fulham triumphed 5-4 over Reading, who had fought back from three goals down in a Premier League 2 Division 2 thriller.
Fulham were 3-0 up after just 18 minutes at Craven Cottage following Luca De La Torre's opener and two Taylor-Crossdale strikes.
Taylor-Crossdale then completed his hat-trick on the stroke of half-time with the Cottagers leading 4-1, Gabriel Osho scoring Reading's goal from the penalty spot.
But second-half strikes from Adam Liddle, Ethan Coleman and Michael Olise made it 4-4.
With five minutes remaining, De La Torre scored his second to secure victory for Fulham, moving them up to seventh on six points, three behind Reading in fifth.
