Pavel Pogrebnyak's early goal secured Fulham a 1-0 victory in the west London derby at 10-man QPR.

The Cottagers dominated first-half proceedings in a tense clash with Russia international Pogrebnyak putting the visitors in front.

QPR looked out of sorts for the most part and their task was made harder in the 33rd minute when debutant Samba Diakite was sent off for a second bookable offence - the third home league match out of four a QPR player has received their marching orders in the first period.
