Kait boosts Fulham's promotion bid

Fulham 1-0 Middlesbrough, PL2

Estonian midfielder nets late winner against Boro for second-placed Division 2 side

A second-half winner from Mattias Kait in a 1-0 success over Middlesbrough moved Fulham to within seven points of Premier League 2 Division 2 leaders Swansea City.

Jesse Joronen denied Boro striker Bradley Fewster and Fulham’s George Williams fired just wide as the hosts were frustrated in the first half.

But moments after just missing out on converting Adetayo Edun’s centre, Kait headed in a cross from the same provider to seal the win on 74 minutes.

A second successive victory, after ending Swansea’s 13-match winning streak, leaves Fulham five points ahead of third-placed Newcastle United.

Fulham next face West Ham United in PL2, on Monday 20 February, while 10th-placed Boro host West Bromwich Albion on the same day.
