Fulham took another step towards relegation but Roy Keane and Sunderland can almost start looking towards next season in the Barclays Premier League after a 3-1 victory at Craven Cottage.

Keane´s men secured their third win a row courtesy of a rare goal from Danny Collins and tidy finishes from Michael Chopra and Kenwyne Jones, taking them to 36 points with five games remaining.

David Healy gave the hosts brief hope when he found the top corner but Sunderland held on for the win that should be enough for survival in Keane´s first season as a top-flight boss.
