On the day Fulham unveiled a Johnny Haynes Statue outside of Craven Cottage many supporters were hoping that the team would find some inspiration. As it turns out, neither team showed much of anything.
The match was not dull because it lacked goals, but it was dull because outside of a few Sunderland shots on goal, the match really did not have much energy from either team.
Kieran Richardson's freekick came the closest to breaking the deadlock in the second half when the ball hit the right post, then the left before being pushed out for a Sunderland corner.
