Fulham moved up to second in the table as Aleksandar Mitrovic continued his goal-scoring form in one of the comfortable football results of the midweek action in the Championship. Harry Wilson opened the scoring in the 15th minute before Mitrovic doubled their advantage on the stroke of half-time. Kenny Tete, Neeskens Kebano, and Tosin Adarabaiyo scored within seven minutes of each other after Wilson scored his second of the game. Mitrovic scored his 24th goal of the campaign on the stroke of full-time.
Reading’s Veljko Paunovic: “Will I be in charge [on Saturday]? I can’t answer that question. This was just a horrible night for us, another horrible night. It has come at a difficult moment for us. We had a setback with our early injury [to Scott Dann, who was replaced]. That changed our whole game, our whole approach, and our whole shape. From having a trusted line-up, without Scott, we had to do a lot of reshuffling. People had to play in positions that they would not do normally. With all that, we needed to adjust pretty quickly. But then we conceded the first goal, which was really avoidable.”
Fulham’s Marco Silva: It will be a special season if you get success at the end of it. If we get that success, of course, it will be special. For us and our fans. Until then, we don’t win anything. In the Championship, in this competition, everything can change so quickly. Sometimes we have deserved points, sometimes we didn’t get them. But this allows us to regroup again. I’m very pleased with it.”
