Fulham's hopes of reaching the Europa League knockout stages will go down to the wire after Zoltan Gera earned them a 1-0 victory against CSKA Sofia at Craven Cottage.
Needing to match Group E rivals Roma on the night, Roy Hodgson's men did their part with maximum points against their Bulgarian opponents, who only had Luboslav Penev in the dug-out for the second half after their coach nearly missed the trip altogether.
Danny Murphy, making his first appearance in six weeks after a knee injury, missed a penalty but Gera headed home to spare his captain's blushes. They travel to Basle on Wednesday, December 16 still with a slim hope of reaching the last 32.
