"QPR didn't deserve a point"

Fulham 2-0 QPR
Louis Saha
Louis Saha netted from the spot
Fulham moved closer to the Premiership but it took a disputed penalty and an injury-time second to see off struggling QPR.

Louis Saha and Lee Clark grabbed the goals that gave Jean Tigana's men the points in the west London derby.

The visitors showed their resilience in the opening half-hour but the gulf in quality between the teams began to tell as half-time approached.

Saha was only the width of the goalline away from opening the scoring in the 29th minute as he connected with Bjarne Goldbaek's left-wing corner and saw his header crash off the underside of the bar.

Lee Harper was kept busy in the visitors' goal saving well from John Collins and then tipping a Clark effort on to the bar.

However as Steve Finnan retrieved the loose ball Karl Ready was adjudged to have impeded him and referee Mick Riley awarded a hotly disputed penalty.

Striker Saha fired the spot-kick into the roof of the net to give the visitors a 37th-minute advantage.

QPR captain Gavin Peacock should have levelled in first half injury time but he lifted his chip over the bar when clean through.

Saha and substitutes Boa Morte and Riedle all went close as QPR were exposed in searching for an equaliser.

Midfielder Clark finally killed them off in injury time when he seized on Boa Morte's through ball, beat the offside trap and calmly slotted home from the edge of the area.


Fulham: Taylor, Finnan, Brevett, Melville, Symons, Clark, John Collins, Hayles, Goldbaek, Saha, Davis. Subs: Hahnemann, Riedle, Neilson, Boa Morte, Stolcers.

QPR: Harper, Perry, Ready, Plummer, Baraclough, Rose, Murray, Darlington, Knight, Peacock, Crouch. Subs: Miklosko, Kiwomya, Kulcsar, Warren, Wardley.
Referee: M Riley (Leeds)
