Half-time: Fulham 1 Norwich 0

Sean Kavanagh’s first goal for Fulham gave Kit Symons’ side the lead against Championship front-runners Norwich.

The 20-year-old, on only his fourth appearance, finished off a flowing counter-attack with an emphatic finish past John Ruddy.

The goal, on 21 minutes, came against the run of play as Norwich dominated territory and possession but without making Whites keeper Marcus Bettinelli work.

For all of Norwich’s probing, they were unable to find a route past centre-backs Nikolay Bodurov and Dan Burn, and Fulham punished them on the break.

Scott Parker started the attack by feeding Hugo Rodallega, and Lasse Vigen Christensen laid the ball off for Kavanagh to drill home.

Bettinelli’s only save came from a Wes Hoolahan half-volley on the turn, which floated into his hands, and Fulham came close to doubling their lead on 38 minutes but Burn’s header from a corner was cleared off the line by Hoolahan.

Fulham (4-1-2-1-2): Bettinelli; Hoogland (Zverotic 22), Bodurov, Burn, Stafylidis; Parker; Christensen, Kavanagh; Ruiz; Rodallega, McCormack.
Subs: Kiraly, Hutchinson, Roberts, Dembele, Williams, Hyndman.
