  1. Fulham hold out for the win then as Stoke fail to fashion a chance late on. They should feel fortunate with this victory, and it should serve as a massive boost to Martin Jol and his players.

  2. GOAL! Huge goal for Fulham! Poor play from Stoke in the centre of the park gives Fulham the chance to break. Kasami picks up the ball and lashes it into the area to an unmarked Bent, who does brilliantly to evade a defender and Begovic to slot home.

  3. 79

    Reither blasts through the Stoke defence on a 70-yard run, and his shot is well saved by Begovic.

  4. 71

    A nervy second or two for dominant Stoke as Shawcross attempts to hook a long ball back, but it lands straight into Begovic's hands.

  5. 67

    Ireland is found unmarked in the area but his volley is lashed just wide.

  6. 66

    Huth again proves dangerous from the corner, heading just over.

  7. 65

    Cameron cuts inside and unleashes an effort, but it deflects out for a corner.

  8. 63

    Dimitar Berbatov is really struggling out there for Fulham, and Darren Bent eventually comes on for him as the home side's last sub.

  9. 63

    Arnautovic gets in behind the Fulham defence with a great run but the finish is poor and he's offside.

  10. 62

    Assaidi's trickery will be plenty for Fulham to handle and he opens the space up for Arnautovic, but his effort is tame.

  11. 60

    Off comes Etherington for Stoke, with Assaidi on to replace him.

  12. 60

    Sidwell stretches the play out wide and a great ball in from Ruiz finds Berbatov, but it's a good save.

  13. Whelan's first action on the pitch is to go into the referee's book for a late challenge.

  14. Glenn Whelan replaces Wilson for Stoke.

  15. Karagounis is Fulham's second change, replaced by Derek Boateng.

  16. 54

    Karagounis' powerful delivery is headed away by the first man.

  17. 54

    A free-kick right on the edge of the Stoke penalty area is awarded after Berbatov is felled.

  18. 49

    Yet another penalty appeal but it's exactly the same result as before as Berbatov is pulled down.

  19. 46

    A half-time switch will change Fulham's system a little as Hangeland comes off for Richardson.

  20. 45

    Fulham kick off the second half then, which side will capitalise on their bright first 45 minutes?
