Fulham   6 - 2   Peterborough

Diomansy Kamara scored a hat-trick as Fulham eased into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a comfortable victory over League One side Peterborough.

Fulham opened up a 4-0 lead with a header and shot from Kamara either side of a deflected shot from Dickson Etuhu followed by a header from Zoltan Gera.

Lee Tomlin pulled one back with a superb low shot before Kamara tapped in to complete his hat-trick.

Posh's Grant McCann scored a penalty but Jonathan Greening slid in a sixth.

Fulham had moved out of the Premier League's relegation zone on Tuesday after a convincing 3-0 win against West Bromwich Albion and, eager to gain some momentum, Cottagers boss Mark Hughes stuck with the same XI for this FA Cup tie.

606: DEBATE
r f steele

However, the visitors had the best chance of the opening exchanges when David Stockdale was forced into a smart stop from Arron Davies as Fulham dithered at a corner, and the goalkeeper also tipped over Craig Mackail-Smith's rising drive after a sweeping Peterborough move.

But after Chris Baird's far-post cross was nodded home with ease from point-blank range by Kamara, Fulham never looked back.

Damien Duff's cross was cleared to Etuhu, who blasted home via a deflection to double the lead and although Peterborough continued to attack gamely, Danny Murphy's through-ball beat their offside trap and Kamara raced clear before slotting the ball into the far corner.

Duff was again the creator for Fulham's fourth when his inch-perfect cross was met by Gera.

Two minutes later, Tomlin netted a fine consolation, the winger racing in from the right-hand side and arrowing a low finish into the far corner.

But Kamara struck again when he sidefooted in Greening's cutback to complete his hat-trick and heap more misery on the visitors.

Substitute Rafik Halliche conceded a penalty for tripping Mackail-Smith and Posh captain McCann sent Stockdale the wrong way in the 86th minute for Peterborough's second but Greening made it 6-2 when he tapped in easily.
