Fulham midfielder Sylvain Legwinski, keeper Mark Crossley with defenders Liam Rosenior, Alain Goma, Zesh Rehman and Iain Pearce all featured in the reserves 0-0 draw against Charlton on Tuesday.
Everyone other than Legwinski played the full 90 minutes although the French midfielder did play longer than the anticipated 45 minutes. Legwinski impressed in his eventual 70 minutes of play with Reserve coach Billy McKinlay commenting “Leggy was only supposed to play 45 minutes. But he felt quite good and his fitness was reasonable so that was a positive.”
Fulham coach Chris Coleman will be pleased to hear that a number of first team squad members are approaching full fitness levels and that Ian Pearce, in particular, is so keen to get a game that he played the 90 minutes as a striker.
