Cottagers get back to winning ways

Fulham halted their three-match losing streak and surged to the summit of their Europa League table with a 1-0 victory over Basle. Danny Murphy struck the decisive goal in the 57th minute, driving home Andrew Johnson's superb pull-back for the club captain's third goal of the season. Johnson had a late penalty appeal rejected after tumbling beneath defender Behrang Safari's tackle and the England striker was lively throughout. For a club that has not prioritised European competition, Fulham have made a promising start to their campaign with four points from two matches including this creditable victory over Basle. The Swiss team arrived at Craven Cottage with a fine European pedigree and will be wondering how they failed to finish with a point after Marco Streller and Benjamin Huggel missed two sitters.
