THREE POINTS ARE AT LAST IN KIT’S BAG

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

CON­SID­ER­ING th­ese two sides’ wretched form of late, it was never go­ing to be a match of the high­est qual­ity.

But man­ager­less Ful­ham showed plenty of fight to snatch their first league win of the sea­son.

The first half threw up a hand­ful of chances with Clayton Donaldson miss­ing a sit­ter be­fore David Cot­ter­ill showed him how to do it in fine style. The wide­man, a sum­mer ar­rival from Don­caster Rovers, had al­ready drawn praise from boss Lee Clark prior to the game and he could well be a cru­cial player for the Blues this sea­son.

But Clark also needs to ad­dress de­fen­sive is­sues as two goals in eight min­utes turned this game on it’s head. Ad­mit­tedly there was a touch of luck about both but Ful­ham will not be com­plain­ing with three vi­tal points.

Care­taker man­ager Kit Sy­mons said after their mid­week win over Don­caster that the re­sult would help his chances of be­ing ap­pointed per­ma­nently. A sec­ond win cer­tainly boosts his claim even fur­ther.
