A young Fulham reserve team notched up their first win of the season on Tuesday evening as they overcame Spurs at Stevenage.
Facundo Sava continued his impressive scoring run as he netted early on for the Whites by powerfully heading home from an Adam Green corner. The home side came back only a matter of minutes later from the penalty spot – with Jackson slotting past Flitney.
But Latvian international, Andrejs Stolcers, was on hand to nod home what turned out to be the winning goal for Fulham on 47 minutes.
Speaking after the match, reserve team manager Paul Nevin was pleased to have finally recorded the first victory of the campaign.
“We’ve gone to extremes in the first two weeks,” he said. “We showed some quality attacking football in the first match against Derby – although we also let in five. In the second week the emphasis was on maintaining our defensive shape.
“Against Spurs we got the blend right, we carried out our defensive duties and moved the ball well. Sava was a great target tonight, he set plays up, got the ball wide and allowed us to get the ball into the box and cause problems in their final third.”
FULHAM RESERVES (4-3-3): Flitney, Rosenior, Green (Noble 71), Leacock, Watkins; Rehman, Buari (McDemott 90), Pratley; Stolcers (Doherty 71), Harley, Sava.
