Dimitar Berbatov gave Martin Jol's men the lead in the ninth minute, as he nodded home unmarked from Damien Duff's cross.

The Irish winger nearly doubled the Cottagers' lead, but his shot went just wide of Jussi Jaaskelainen's post.

Fulham went in leading at the break, but the Hammers were back on level terms three minutes after the break.

Kevin Nolan was the man who found the net after getting on the end of a near-post free kick. However, the parity did not last long, as Hugo Rodallega quickly restored the home side's advantage.

West Ham captain Nolan continued to terrorise the Fulham defence but was unable to find a way through a stubborn backline.

Mladen Petric could have sealed the points with 10 minutes remaining, but Jaaskelainen was equal to his effort.

Joey O'Brien's own goal in the last minute saved the Craven Cottage faithful from a nervy final few moments.
