Murphy sparks Cottage cheers

FULHAM rediscovered their shooting boots in controversial fashion to condemn struggling Burnley to their 12th top flight defeat of the season.

Danny Murphy, David Elm and Bobby Zamora all hit the target against the Clarets, who have just earned just one Premier League point on the road.

Fulham tripled their goal haul for the last three league games combined –but not without dispute.

Elm appeared to be beyond the last man when he headed on for midfielder Murphy to volley the first on 23 minutes, while Zamora benefited from a marginal decision eight minutes later when his saved shot fell to Elm for the second.

Defender Tyrone Mears went close to pulling one back with a 25-yard free-kick that grazed the crossbar, but Zamora wrapped up the win with a low free-kick on 54 minutes.
