Full Time: Fulham 3 - 2 West Ham. Fulham have even more to celebrate after picking up three well-earned points. Despite seeing five goals it was not the most dramatic of London derbies and epitomised an end of season fixture.
FULHAM 3 - 2 WEST HAM: Noble and Parker link up down the right flank and the latter does brilliantly to pick out FRANCO who fires a shot past Schwarzer.
The game is just fizzling out now but West Ham have a late corner.
A high cross to the far post almost picks out Riise who goes down under the challenge of Diamanti looking for a penalty but Andre Marriner waves away the protests.
David Elm is introduced in place of Dempsey.
Parker is desperate to create something for the visitors but his knock through to Cole is too hard and runs out for a goal-kick.
Junior Stanislas comes on in place of Behrami.
The goal has surely put the game beyond doubt now and it is a disappointing goal to concede from West Ham's point of view as they seemed to have got a foothold in the tie.
FULHAM 3 - 1 WEST HAM: Spector is caught dispossessed in a dangerous position by Nevland who picks out OKAKA inside the six-yard box to round off the move.

The visitors are seeing plenty of the ball now and are putting Fulham under their first real spell of pressure in the entire game.
Okaka has space on the right flank and moves into the box but cannot find a way past Da Costa.
Diamanti and Franco have added some much needed attacking flair into this West Ham side. Diamanti cuts in from the right flank this time but his final cross is too close to Schwarzer.
Simon Davies is replaced by Stefano Chuka Okaka.
Cole and Parker link up again in an attacking position but this time Parker is penalised for handball.
Cole cushions a header down to Parker on the edge of the box and he lines up a shot but is closed down quickly by Smalling.
A little more urgency has had a dramatic effect on this game and West Ham move forward in numbers before Cole hits a weak effort from 20-yards.
This tie looks a lot more like a London derby now and is a massive improvement on the dull opening 45 minutes.
FULHAM 2 - 1 WEST HAM: COLE gets a goal at the right end this time with a glancing header off Noble's free-kick.
Guillermo Franco comes on for Ilan.

Fulham are knocking the ball around confidently now and Nevland lays the ball off for Riise whose low cross is clipped over his own crossbar by Upson.

Matthew Upson receives treatment for an injury and the game is momentarily paused.
Parker is yet again standing out in the West Ham side and adds some urgency into their play before floating a disappointing cross straight behind for a goal-kick.
Greening wins a corner down the left wing but it comes to nothing and Green collects the loose ball.

The second-half is underway at Craven Cottage.
Half Time: Fulham 1 - 0 West Ham. That was a great move from the hosts but unfortunately is one of only a few highlights in this game with the first-half being played at a pedestrian pace.
FULHAM 1 - 0 WEST HAM: DEMPSEY links up with Davies before sliding a shot past a helpless Rob Green from inside the box.
Noble plants a corner on the head of Radoslav Kovac who cannot steer the ball on target. It was a free header and the midfielder perhaps should have done better.
Da Costa hits a speculative effort from distance and Schwarzer has to pull off a decent save to turn the ball around the post.
Fulham try to catch Wes Ham on the counter as Konchesky moves forward but the move comes to an end when Jonathan Greening runs into trouble.
Cole picks up the ball again but his ball through to Ilan is hopeful more than anything and runs straight through to Mark Schwarzer.

Parker runs at the Fulham defence and picks out Ilan who gets into a decent position before being eased off the ball by Paul Konchesky.
The media comments from West Ham's owners regarding the entire squad bar Scott Parker being up for sale may be having an effect on this performance.
The visitors clip a free-kick into the mixer but Cole is stood in an offside position.
That was a great chance from Fulham and it came out of nothing. Hopefully that moment will pick up the players and inject some pace into the game.
Clint Dempsey spins on the ball with his back to goal and hits the woodwork with a stinging strike from the edge of the box.
First shot on target from the visitors as Mark Noble sees a strike comfortably saved by Schwarzer.
We are still without any real efforts on goal and there is a real lack of interest in the game from either side.
Fulham are quick in trying to get the ball up the right flank and may be picking out Jonathan Spector as a weak link at left-back in the West Ham side.
Fulham are spreading the ball around well but it is all very tame from Roy Hodgson's side, possibly due to players not wanting to pick up knocks ahead of their Europa League final.
West Ham defend another Fulham corner and it is the hosts, despite fielding a fairly weakened team, who look the most dangerous in these opening stages.
It has been a relatively slow start to this game and it is a perfect example of having that 'end of season' feel.

John Paintsil moves forward down the right flank and gets a decent ball into the box which is eventually cleared by Da Costa.
