The wheels are coming off at Selhurst Park. After a strong first half in which only two brilliant strikes could separate visiting Fulham from Crystal Palace, the Cottagers have pulled away with two goals on corner kicks before the hour mark.

First, it was Dimitar Berbatov, rising above a reaching and grabbing Adrian Mariappa to head home. Then, Philippe Senderos put one home underneath goalkeeper Julián Speroni.

Palace manager Ian Holloway has put Marouane Chamakh and Jerome Thomas into the game, looking for a difference-maker to step up. With a three-goal gap, that looks less likely by the minute, even though 30 minutes remain.
