Fulham had the last laugh in this season's feud with Stoke by completing a Barclays Premier League double over them to edge closer to safety with a 2-0 victory.
Top scorer Clint Dempsey netted his eighth and ninth goals of the season as the Cottagers made it three win in five to put daylight between themselves and the drop zone.
This match was the third tempestuous affair between the sides this season and Potters captain Ryan Shawcross was sent off after bundling over Dempsey in the box.
