Fulham began their tour of Austria with a thumping win over ASK Voitsberg.

Chris Coleman continued to give some of the club’s academy stars a chance to impress in pre-season with Adam Green, Malik Buari, Zesh Rehman, Mark Hudson and Dean Leacock all featuring. Facundo Sava shot Fulham ahead with an early close range effort, before turning provider for Steve Marlet – operating on the right wing – to double the lead.

Elvis Hammond, who had led the line against Celtic, last week added a third five minutes after coming off the bench as he volleyed home a Luis Boa Morte cross. Sean Davis made an appearance from the bench but he had to be replaced after sustaining a knee injury in an awkward collision. Louis Saha converted a penalty he had won himself to make it four before Voitsberg grabbed a consolation from the spot themselves.

FULHAM (4-4-2): Taylor (van der Sar); Hudson (Green), Leacock, Knight (Goma), Bonnissel (Harley), Marlet (Hammond; Legwinski), Buari (Djetou), Inamoto (Davis; Malbranque), Rehman (Clark); Hayles (Boa Morte), Sava (Saha).
