City 1 Fulham 2.

Surely you couldn't have really thought it would have happened?

Fulham, whose away form has meant they have been dragged into relegation trouble despite one of the best home records in the Premiership come to City and take all three points.

Not only do we lose the game but manage to concede two goals in the last five minutes in the process - the second pretty straight from our corner after Samaras had been unfortunate not to score with a deft chip. The reaction from the Fulham fans and players was one of disbelief as much as joy I think.

Looking at the Premiership table, remarkably we are now only five points clear of Portsmouth who were dead and buried a couple of months ago - until they faced a 'last chance' home game against us.


"It was a poor defeat today, we allowed them too much space for the first and with the second we were trying to chase a winner. Their players can break and sprint 100 yards, but we can't break and recover 100 yards, and it's not good enough." - Stuart Pearce.

"I am delighted, especially with the fashion we did it in, although we rode our luck in the second half. It was a great finish by Malbranque. He's a quality, quality player and we're absolutely desperate to extend his contract." - Chris Coleman
