A fine 33rd minute strike from Clint as he chests the ball down under pressure in the box before dinking a volley from 10 yards into the top corner keeps Fulham's unbeaten record intact.
However, this was another major opportunity missed to grab that elusive away win at last against a very ordinary West Ham side. Fulham controlled long passages of the games after a slow start, and silenced the home crowd with Clint's excellent composure to volley a fine goal. Johnson came off his marker to meet a ball played up from midfield, fed Davies and he chipped into the right channel for our big Yank to hold off the attentions of two defenders and score past a helpless Green.

EJ could well have made more of a challenge in the box approaching half-time to claim what would have been a legitimate penalty. It was too much to expect a strong decision from the consistently weak Marriner, who allowed repeated fouling from our opponents to go unpunished.
Five minutes into the 2nd period the Whites paid a cruel price for cheaply conceding possession deep in their own half when under no pressure. Brede was the culprit as the ball was whipped out wide to Obinna in a flash and from his cross Piquionne notched his second headed goal in two games before the defence could regroup.
After a dodgy 10 minutes following the equaliser, Fulham set about regaining the lead.
In the final 20 minutes Etuhu missed the target with a free header deep in the box, Green went full stretch to a Davies long shot then smothered the ball after another marauding surge into the box by Clint. Eddie Johnson snatched at a chest down from Etuhu and shot well wide, he was subbed soon after, and as the clock ticked down Etuhu saw his powerful header superbly parried by Green, before Kamara was put clear in the final minute but blasted over from the edge of the box when all that was needed was a dink over the stranded keeper.
Even the introduction of Carlton Cole did nothing to raise the tempo for the home side, who find themselves - just like Everton last week - sinking to last place after taking a point off the Whites.
What Hughes would give for his first choice strike partnership in this current frustrating run of drawn games. This was a marked improvement on last week's disjointed effort. We are just missing that extra 10% - but again saw Duff withdrawn in the 2nd half, Etuhu looked sluggish, and I really don't think we can give EJ any more chances at this level.
Two weeks now to prepare for what will be a much tougher test against Spurs. By then the strike options in attack for Fulham should have improved considerably.
