  • Description

    THE LONDON SOCCER TEAM, FULHAM, FACING THE PROSPECT OF RELEGATION TO THE SECOND DIVISION, WON AT HOME TODAY (SATURDAY) BY FOUR GOALS TO TWO IN THEIR MATCH AGAINST SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY.

    FULHAM ARE LYING SECOND LAST IN THE FIRST DIVISION TABLE WITH 29 POINTS. SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY ARE FIFTH FROM BOTTOM WITH 31.

    ALTHOUGH SO FAR DOWN IN THE LEAGUE TABLE, FULHAM HAVE BEEN HAVING A LARGE MEASURE OF SUCCESS LATELY, WINNING SIX OF THEIR SEVEN MATCHES.

    IN TODAY'S MATCH THEY WERE TWICE BEHIND THE VISITING TEAM, BUT EACH TIME MANAGED TO RECOVER.

    SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY TOOK THE LEAD IN THE FIRST HALF WHEN FORD HEADED THE BALL INTO THE NET PAST THE FULHAM GOALKEEPER McCLELLAND.

    BARRETT EQUALISED FOR FULHAM THREE MINUTES LATER AFTER TAKING A PASS FROM PEARSON.

    SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY'S SECOND GOAL CAME ABOUT MIDWAY THROUGH THE FIRST HALF WHEN McCALLIOG -- FORMERLY A MEMBER OF THE CHELSEA SIDE -- HEADED IN. THE HALF-TIME SCORE WAS TWO-ONE IN WEDNESDAY'S FAVOUR.

    FULHAM DREW LEVEL IN THE SECOND HALF FROM THE MOST SPECTACULAR SCORE OF THE MATCH. LEGGAT DIVED IN FRONT OF THE GOAL, HEADING IN. LEGGAT WAS ALSO INSTRUMENTAL IN FULHAM'S THIRD GOAL WHEN HE PASSED TO EARLE WHO SCORED.

    ONLY A FEW MINUTES BEFORE THE FINAL WHISTLE ROBSON BANGED IN FULHAM'S FOURTH GOAL FROM A PENALTY KICK.
