Fulham got back to winning ways courtesy of Clint Dempsey's double as Blackburn went down to a 3-0 Barclays Premier League defeat.

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is scheduled have an operation on a coronary artery and could be back next week - and despite the scoreline he is certain to highlight the clash at Craven Cottage as a missed opportunity.

Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson did not have a save to make until Erik Nevland squeezed a finish in at the near post, and the game was still up for grabs until Dempsey tapped in with 23 minutes remaining. The American grabbed his second before the end meaning the visitors failed to build on their win over Bolton at the weekend.
