Forest 0-3 Fulham
Barry Hayles
Barry Hayles netted Fulham's third
Three second-half goals helped Fulham to a club record seven successive league victories and helped them maintain the only 100 per cent record in the First Division at the City Ground.

Forest frustrated Fulham for long periods but were powerless to prevent the table-toppers once French sensation Louis Saha set the London outfit on their way with a 56th-minute penalty - his 10th goal in seven games.

The penalty was awarded after Christian Edwards had been adjudged to have brought down Lee Clark and they never recovered as Fulham struck twice in two minutes late on to seal the victory.

Fabrice Fernandes made it 2-0 nine minutes from time as he lashed an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net after playing a neat one-two with Barry Hayles.

And Hayles completed the scoring when he calmly lobbed the ball over Forest goalkeeper Dave Beasant.

Fulham dominated the first half and Saha was guilty of wasting two clear opportunities with the game in its early stages.

Former Chelsea midfielder Bjarne Goldbaek hammered a free-kick against Beasant's right-hand upright and Lee Clark also went close.

Forest's only real effort of the first half came after 21 minutes when Taylor dropped a cross and Tony Vaughan saw his shot bundled wide for a corner.

It was a similar story in the second half and the home side's brightest moment was supplied by substitute Dougie Freedman but his long-range effort was saved by Taylor.

Nottm Forest: Beasant, Louis-Jean, Edwards, Vaughan, Brennan, Prutton, Bart-Williams, Johnson, Rogers, Lester, Harewood.
Subs: Roche, Freedman, Williams, John, Blake.

Fulham: Taylor, Finnan, Brevett, Melville, Coleman, Clark, Hayles, Collins, Goldbaek, Saha, Fernandes.
Subs: Hahnemann, Trollope, Neilson, Boa Morte, Lewis.

Referee: E Wolstenholme (Blackburn)
