Fulham earn Europa League victory

Zoltan Gera

Fulham are just one away from the next round of the Europa League after beating CSKA Sofia 1-0 on Thursday.

Zoltan Gera headed in the only goal of the game at Craven Cottage, although Fulham should have won by more goals.

They missed a lot of chances and Danny Murphy blasted a penalty over the crossbar, and it almost cost Fulham when CSKA went close to scoring.

Fulham's final game of the group is on 16 December away to Swiss side Basle, and if Fulham win they will qualify.

But a win for Basle or a draw will see the Swiss team take Fulham's place in the last 32.
