Fulham 1-1 Bournemouth: Exciting Championship clash sees Scott Parker turn down Craven Cottage return
H

onours was even in the shock of the championship between Fulham and Bournemouth on Friday night.

Both guards were tested early. Fulham’s Marek Rodak was comfortably enough behind Adam Smith’s drive before Mark Travers parried a low drive from Neeskens Kebano at the other end at the expense of a corner.

The lively Kebano was soon back for another attempt, with the exact same result and the ensuing corner kick led to a goalmouth scramble which saw the ball hitting Bournemouth’s Gary Cahill on his arm, but referee Tim Robinson did not notice or deemed it unintentional.

Lewis Cook was booked for a 15th-minute lunge on Kebano who saw both feet take off from the ground and play came to a halt shortly thereafter for Solanke, who was injured in a collision with Adarabioyo, to be bandage your head.

The bandage nearly recovered an assist, Solanke planting a header seven yards just off Rodak’s right post.

The former Englishman came back in the 30th minute with a burst into the box on the left and a shot through the goal that went right by.

Jack Stacey became the next Bournemouth man to be booked, for another lunge on Kebano and the pair reunited again soon after, with Stacey blocking the winger’s shot from inside the six-box meters.

Referee Robinson had another decision to make within seconds when Harry Wilson fell into the zone following a challenge from Solanke, but dismissed the penalty calls.

Cherries skipper Steve Cook turned down Fulham twice within seconds just before the break. He dived first to prevent Aleksandar Mitrovic from bringing the ball home from the left of the box.
