Onomah and Kebano show class as Fulham take control of Cardiff tie

27 July 2020 09:00
Without their talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic through injury, this had the makings of a tricky evening for Fulham but superb individual goals by Josh Onomah and Neeskens Kebano earned them a two-goal advantage to take back to Craven Cottage and puncture Cardiff’s hopes of reaching the Championship play-off final.Onomah took matters into his own hands, twisting and turning in the box for a wonderful solo goal four minutes after the break before Kebano sealed victory close to full-time with a delicious free-kick from 20 yards. After an unconvincing start, Scott Parker’s side stamped their authority on the game and sapped belief from Cardiff, who spent the majority of the second half chasing shadows. This result provides a perfect platform for Fulham, who also hope to welcome back Mitrovic for the second leg on Thursday.
