  1. PALACE 1 FULHAM 4 - The Cottagers record a much-needed victory, thanks to two first-half stunners and a couple from set-pieces shortly after the break. Stay with us for report, reaction and ratings from Selhurst Park.

  2. 90+2

    Phillips attempts to play in Moxey but Stekelenburg is quick off his line to smother. The big Dutchman has enjoyed a comfortable return from injury.

  3. 90

    Three minutes of stoppage time to play...

  4. 89

    Berbatov's work is done, with the goalscorer making way for Hugo Rodallega.

  5. 86

    Berbatov leads a Fulham break after Parker wins possession and the Bulgarian feeds Kasami on the left. The Swiss wideman eyes up the far corner, but his curling effort is tipped away by Speroni's top hand as he dived to his left.

  6. 82

    Palace fans give their loudest cheer of the second half upon the award of a free-kick on the edge of the box for Amorebieta's foul on Chamakh. The home fans, though, are soon groaning again as Thomas sends his shot over the wall and high above the crossbar.

  7. 80

    Fulham's Richardson receives a card on his birthday from referee Lee Mason - a yellow one for a foul on Bolasie.

  8. 77

    Fulham attempt to solidify their midfield by introducing Damien Duff for striker Bent, who has been largely anonymous.

  9. 77

    Ward robs Richardson on the edge of the box and takes a couple of touches before blasting high and wide of the target. The right-back was off-balance as he shot with his weaker foot. No surprise, then, where the ball ended up.

  10. 76

    Thomas has two more attempts at delivering a cross. The first is headed away temporarily by Amorebieta; the second is palmed behind his own goal by Stekelenburg. Two corners, though, from Bolasie come to nothing.

  11. 73

    Thomas finds space on the left of the box, but instead of shooting, the winger tries to find a team-mate and allows Riether to get a block in at the expense of a corner. Jedinak reaches the set-piece first but, under pressure, the Palace midfielder heads well off target.

  12. 69

    Palace throw on another striker, with veteran Kevin Phillips dispatched from the bench to replace Gayle.

  13. 65

    Thomas seized on a loose touch from Richardson, who brought down the Palace sub on the edge of the box. The ball, though, reaches Gayle, whose first shot hits Stekelenburg but his second effort finds the net. The officials, however, rule that Gayle received the ball in an offside position and give Fulham the free-kick, but Palace want a set-piece of their own for Richardson's tackle on Thomas, which came before Gayle received the ball.

  14. 65

    A moment of controversy results in Gayle having the ball in the net for Palace but the effort is ruled out by the linesman's flag.

  15. 62

    Palace's fans have gone quiet and their players' heads are down. Fulham are moving the ball around and wearing their opponents down. Parker attempts to play Bent through, but Speroni is quick off his line to gobble up the pass.

  16. 56

    Palace's response to going 4-1 down is to introduce Chamakh from the bench, with Puncheon making way.

  17. 55

    Another corner from the right has undone Palace, with Senderos meeting the delivery at the far post with an acrobatic volley which Speroni fails to keep out. Stunning start to the second half from Fulham, but Palace have paid for poor defending on two similar set-pieces.

  18. 55
