Fulham Advance to Carling Cup Third Round--The Hard Way

A 3-2 win over Leicester City at Craven Cottage moved the Whites forward, but it took an injury time goal by Danny Murphy to make it happen.

Zoltan Gera and Jimmy Bullard provided the other goals.

While the Fulham back line continues to be a moving target, well, the outside backs at least, I think Roy Hodgson has found himself a highly effective midfield line. Gera, Bullard, Murphy and Simon Davies have made most of the starts thus far and that is going to be a solid line.

Fulham will have nearly two and a half weeks off as their fixture this weekend against Manchester United has been postponed until a later date due to United's participation in the UEFA SuperCup match against UEFA Cup Winners Zenir St. Petersburg on Friday. The the FIFA International break occurs so the next match will be on September 13 against Bolton.
