Fulham’s push to avoid Premier League relegation has taken a hit this weekend as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Leeds.
Scott Parker’s side missed the chance to edge out of the bottom three as Marcelo Bielsa’s visitors move ever closer to their own safety.
Both sides created great chances in the early stages as Luke Ayling had an effort ruled out by VAR and Illan Meslier produced a fine stop from Josh Maja.
But it was to be Leeds that seized the initiative from there as Patrick Bamford got across his man to fire home Jack Harrison’s cross.
However, in a tie that continued to see saw, the Cottagers hauled themselves level before the break as Joachim Anderson cushioned home Ademola Lookman’s corner.
After the restart it was all about who could grab that vital advantage and Bamford guile proved the difference.
Despite the disappointment of missing out on a place in the England squad earlier this week his calm through ball released Raphinha in behind to poke home the winner.
