Fulham 2-1 Hull: Cottagers 11/4 for promotion after defeating struggling Tigers in the Sky Bet Championship

Fulham claimed a first home win of the Sky Bet Championship season as Stefan Johansen's second-half goal helped them beat Hull 2-1 at Craven Cottage.

The hosts opened the scoring three minutes before the break, though, and it was their pace that created the chance.

Sheyi Ojo's run down the left and cross fell perfectly to Floyd Ayite, who had the straightforward task of finishing from six yards out.

Hull levelled on 53 minutes through Jarrod Bowen, nodding home at the second attempt for his fifth goal of the season after his initial header from Kamil Grosicki's cross had been saved.

But Fulham got what proved to be the winner on 62 minutes, as Johansen fired home a loose ball after Ayite failed with a bicycle kick from Ryan Fredericks' cross.

It's been a sluggish start to the season for the Cottagers, who lie 13th in the table on 10 points, but Sky Bet now make them 11/4 to earn promotion after this success while they are still regarded title contenders at 11/1.

Hull are three points further back in 16th and you can back them at 11/1 to go up and 12/1 for relegation.
