Potters crash at home

28 December 2010 05:31
Fulham recorded a first away win since August 2009 by beating Stoke 2-0. A rare brace from defender Chris Baird eased the pressure on manager Mark Hughes. The Cottagers - who started the day in the bottom three - made an early breakthrough after just four minutes when Northern Ireland international Baird crashed in a 20-yard effort off the post for his first Fulham goal. With fog descending at the Britannia Stadium, Fulham doubled their lead as Baird - whose last goal came at Southampton in March 2007 - netted again and the home side were unable to find a way back.
