Fulham manager Martin Jol was proud of his side's turnaround in the win against Newcastle.

Fulham deservedly fell behind to a superb Danny Guthrie long-range drive but Jol's half-time pep talk and tactical tweak proved inspired. Danny Murphy and Bobby Zamora netted penalties either side of a Clint Dempsey brace as Fulham ran the Magpies ragged, with Dempsey having the final word by firing home his third at the end of the 5-2 victory.

"You can explain everything. The first half we knew that we had to be a threat in behind [Mike] Williamson and [Fabricio] Coloccini, but we never did that," said Jol.
