Fulham win London derby

Published Add your comment

Dimitar Berbatov celebrated his 32nd birthday with a vital - if offside - goal that spurred Fulham onto a 3-1 victory against London rivals West Ham.

Fulham came out swinging, with Berbatov nodding home the opener just 10 minutes in but the Hammers showed impressive fight by the Thames, levelling things up through captain Kevin Nolan in the 48th minute.

That lasted just a minute, though, as Hugo Rodallega bundled home a Damien Duff cross to put Fulham on course for their second league win of 2013, which was secured in stoppage time when Joey O'Brien inadvertently put into his own goal.
