Prolific Fulham are close to knockout

Fulham 4 - 1 Wisla Krakow

Fulham edged closer to the Europa League knock-out stages by securing an impressive 4-1 home victory in a tempestuous encounter against Wisla Krakow last night.

The Londoners dominated the Group K tie from the offset as they avenged their controversial 1-0 defeat in Poland two weeks ago, while also extending their unbeaten home record in Europe to 22 matches.

With in excess of 6,000 fans cheering on Wisla, there was a tense atmosphere at Craven Cottage due to Polish fans peppering the home end and a smoke bomb being let off.

Damien Duff handed Fulham an early lead by tucking away Andrew Johnson's low cross, but Andraz Kirm equalised with a deflection off John Arne Riise.

Johnson put Fulham in control with goals in the 30th and 57th minutes before sub Steve Sidwell wrapped it up late on.
