  1. Saturday's EFL action

    FT: Brentford 0-2 Fulham

    Fulham's win tonight has teed up tomorrow's action rather nicely.

    The Whites have hopes of sealing a return to the top flight this season, but can anyone stop Championship leaders Newcastle charging towards promotion to the Premier League?

    Neil Warnock's Cardiff are the next side to try to halt the Magpies' excellent run of form.

    Second-placed Brighton are at Bristol City in Saturday's late kick-off, while Warren Joyce takes charge of Wigan for the first time at home to Reading.

    FT: Brentford 0-2 Fulham

    That victory lifts Fulham up to seventh in the Championship table.

    The Whites are only outside of the play-off places on goal difference.

    They also have the second best away record in the division, with four wins and three draws from eight games on the road.

    Brentford drop a place to 11th ahead of Saturday's fixtures. Dean Smith's side have only won one of their last five league games.

  4. Match reaction

    FT: Brentford 0-2 Fulham

    Quote Message: It's a massive win for us. We have come off the back of not winning in eight games or so and that is not good enough. Now we've got seven goals in two games, and two clean sheets. We should be winning at home as well as away, and if we do that we should be in the top six. We are looking up now. from Scott Malone Fulham left-back on Sky Sports

  5. FULL-TIME

    Brentford 0-2 Fulham

    Tim Robinson blows the final whistle at Griffin Park.

    Fulham have a deserved victory in the west London derby at Griffin Park.

    But they had to wait until stoppage time to wrap it up, when Tom Cairney's cool finish made the three points certain.

  6. YELLOW CARD (Lasse Vibe)

    Brentford 0-2 Fulham

    Brentford's Denmark international Lasse Vibe gets shown yellow for a late challenge in midfield.

    Pure frustration.

  7. Post update

    Into the closing stages, and the game is safe for the visitors.

    The travelling fans are enjoying it.

  8. GOAL: Brentford 0-2 Fulham

    Tom Cairney

    Tom Cairney

    There will be no equaliser for the hosts. Fulham have their second, and with it the three points.

    Brentford's attack breaks down, and the Whites counter.

    Tom Cairney finds Chris Martin in the Bees box and Martin gives the ball back to the Fulham skipper.

    Cairney pauses, beats his man, then slots the ball home from the corner of the six-yard box.

    That will end a four-match winless streak against their west London rivals.

  9. Post update

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    The Bees have the ball, but in their own half. They need to get it forward.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    A final sub for Fulham, as left-back Scott Malone is replaced by American Tim Ream.

    Malone has been brilliant for Fulham tonight. We are into added time - four minutes of it.

  11. Post update

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    A frantic couple of minutes see chances at both ends.

    John Egan meets the Brentford corner but his header goes down and his blocked. Chris Martin then hacks the ball clear.

    Moments later Bees keeper Daniel Bentley races out of his goal to clear ahead of a Fulham player.

    Scott Malone then wins a corner for the visitors as his low cross is turned behind.

  12. Post update

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Lasse Vibe puts a ball forward in search of Scott Hogan.

    Fulham keeper David Button goes across to try to shepherd it out of play but touches the ball under pressure from Hogan.

    Brentford corner.

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Fulham look to break after another Brentford set-piece breaks down.

    Brentford's Nico Yennaris then catches Tom Cairney late and gives away a free-kick.

    Brentford make their final switch, as big striker Philipp Hofmann comes on for Josh Clarke.

    Time to go route one?

  14. YELLOW CARD (Harlee Dean)

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Brentford see their corner cleared away again. They keep up the pressure, but can't get a decent cross in.

    As the ball breaks, Harlee Dean chops down Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald.

    The centre-back goes into the book for that one.

    Meanwhile, Swindon have equalised against Eastleigh in the FA Cup first round.

  15. Post update

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Fulham's Scott Malone surges forwards from left-back and unleashes a shot from 25 yards out, which goes wide.

    At the other end Sullay Kaikai wins a corner for the Bees.

  16. Post update

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Fulham striker Chris Martin controls the ball brilliantly on halfway and breaks forward with Floyd Ayite and in support.

    Eventually he finds the Togolese forward, but Ayite fires low across goal.

  17. Post update

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Fulham forward Chris Martin tries to take a bit of the sting out of the game by taking the ball into the corner.

    But the relief is only momentary as Brentford win the ball back. Can they find an equaliser as we enter the last 10 minutes at Griffin Park?

  18. SUBSTITUTION

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Sone Aluko

    A second change for Fulham. Forward Sone Aluko is off, with club captain Scott Parker coming on.

    That's a move to shore up the midfield by boss Slavisa Jokanovic.

    Aluko's first-half goal still separates the sides.

  19. Post update

    Brentford 0-1 Fulham

    Brentford centre-back John Egan causes panic in the Fulham box as his strong header from another corner is blocked about three yards out.

    Somehow the visitors scramble the ball away. The pressure is mounting.
