Result: Fulham beat Bristol City thanks to four first-half goals

Four goals in the first half help Fulham to a 4-1 win away at Bristol City in the Championship.

Four goals in a first-half flourish have helped Fulham to a 4-1 win away at Bristol City in the Championship.

Moussa Dembele tapped in James Husband's cross after two minutes before a defence-splitting pass from Tom Cairney found him to double the lead.

Ross McCormack smashed in a free kick to grab the third, and a couple of minutes later Ryan Tunnicliffe chipped a deft lob over Frank Fielding for a fourth.

A cross-shot from Ryan Fredericks almost added a fifth as Bristol City managed to work themselves back into the game, but not on the scoreboard.

Andy Lonergan tipped over a long-range shot from Derrick Williams, before Jonathan Kodjia scored a consolation goal in the last minute after Simon Cox's shot was parried into his direction.

The result sees Fulham move up to 10th in the league table with Bristol City sitting just one point above the relegation zone.
