Fulham 2-0 West Bromwich Albion

Ola Aina scores maiden Fulham goal as his side defeat West Brom 2-0 at Craven Cottage

Fulham moved out of the bottom three as they registered their first victory of the campaign with a 2-0 success against West Bromwich Albion, helped by a superb strike from Ola Aina. 

Bobby De Cordova-Reid headed Scott Parker's side in front on 26 minutes after Aleksandar Mitrovic nodded Antonee Robinson's cross back across goal.

Four minutes later, Fulham right-back Aina lashed a phenomenal left-footed shot into the top corner, with Mitrovic again creating the chance.

Karlan Grant spurned a good opportunity to reduce West Brom's deficit before half-time and could only head straight at Alphonse Areola during the second half.

Conor Townsend cleared a Tom Cairney effort off the line late on as Fulham wrapped up a precious win.

Fulham are now in 17th place, on four points, while West Brom drop to 18th with three.
