In a scrappy first half, which was not for the footballing conisuerre neither keeper was forced into action until the 30 minute, when Friedel got down well to beat out a shot from Marlet, which allowing Berg to clear the danger.

Five minutes later a cross by Garry Flitcroft was hit right footed first time by Andy Cole against the crossbar. The rebound being crossed back into the area again by Flitcroft, which resulted in Lee Clark handling the ball whilst in flight.

David Dunn slotting the resultant penalty, right footed in to the bottom right hand side of Taylors goal.

Four minutes before half time Lucas Neill crossed from the right, deep into the Fulham area to allow Hakan Sukur to chest down the ball, turn and slot the ball left-footed from six-yards past Taylor.

Half time Fulham 0 Rovers 2.

Within 10 minutes of the restart Rovers went three up with a goal from Duff. Collecting a back flick from Cole, Duff cut in from the left to drill a left footed shot under the diving Taylors body. A minute later Sukar scored Rovers fourth and his second with a left-footed shot from the right side of the penalty area after fine work by Cole.

Shortly after Sukars second goal, Lucas Neill, who had been booked in the 12 minute, was replaced by Martin Taylor.

With Rovers in command Souness substituted Tugay, shortly after Tugay had been booked, with Gillespie, allowing Dunn to move into his favoured central midfield role. With a minute of normal time left, Gillespie, who had earlier taken a knock on his ankle, was replaced by Grabbi.

For the remainder of the game Fulham attempted to musle their way through the Rovers midfield, but were frustrated by a resolute Rovers defence. With Rovers looking the more likely to extend their lead.
