Fulham Suffers Shock Loss Against Crawley


Fulham suffered a shock defeat to Crawley Town in the League Cup on Tuesday night. The West Londoners fell behind to Alex Wall’s goal early on and were unable to find an equalizer despite dominating possession throughout.

They did force one last-gasp save from Crawley keeper Dan Lincoln, but the hosts ultimately saw their hopes of progressing ended by a stoppage-time winner from Jordan Roberts after being reduced to ten men late on.

Fulham suffered a shock 3-0 defeat to Crawley Town in their League Cup clash at Craven Cottage.

The Cottagers, who are second in the Championship, fell behind early on when Kyle McFadzean’s header from a corner was somehow diverted into his own net by Denis Odoi as he tried to clear.

Fulham began to find their rhythm but were soon two down when full-back Patrick Agyemang charged down goalkeeper David Button’s clearance and poked home from close range before half-time.

Crawley held on comfortably after the break as Fulham pressed for an equalizer, Maxwell well off target with one strike from long range and substitute Matt Smith seeing another saved by the busy home keeper Joe Murphy late on.

Fulham Stumped By Betsy Masterclass

The League Cup has been an odd competition for the Londoners this season, with their form in it fluctuating wildly. They’ve won two games before today, but also just one of their last four fixtures (a 4-3 loss to Manchester City).

Despite what many might think about this game being a mere cup tie against lower-league opposition, Fulham will have wanted to go through in order to avoid any potential embarrassment later on in the competition. But alas, they fell at the first hurdle again after losing 3-0 away from home at Crawley Town.

Crawley Town are through to the next round of the League Cup after beating Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage on Tuesday night – a result which means Fulham’s cup run has come to an end despite winning both legs of their semi-final tie against Aston Villa over 120 minutes earlier this month.
