Fulham returned to winning ways by conducting a comprehensive demolition job on sorry Scarborough at Craven Cottage this afternoon.

The Cottagers started like the clappers scoring twice in the first seven minutes. Glenn Cockerill cracked home his first goal for the club from the edge of the area with five minutes on the clock before Darren Freeman made light of falling to the ground as found the perfect connection to send a left-wing cross into the net. The unstoppable Freeman is then brought down as he surges through on goal midway through the second half and Mark Blake makes it three from the penalty spot.

The former Gillingham forward laid on the fourth for good measure. He digs out a cross that is nudged home off his thigh by on-loan forward Christer Warren, who marks his Fulham debut with a goal from close range with eleven minutes to play.
