Fulham 3 PNE 1

4 March 2017

Fulham 3 PNE 1

Goals from, Sone Aluko, Chris Martin and Neeskens Kebano saw Fulham triumph at Craven Cottage on Gentry Day, despite Tom Barkhuizen getting his first PNE goal on his full debut.

Aluko turned home Ketano’s cross mid-way through the first half before Martin doubled the home side’s advantage from Fredericks’ pass on the hour mark. Barkhuizen got the yellows back in it collecting Aiden McGeady’s superb threaded through ball, but Kebano fired home via a deflection for the Cottagers third.

The visiting Gentry fans saw their side start well and seven minutes in McGeady drove in a shot from 30 yards after Fulham keeper David Button’s poor header as out of his goal, but Tim Ream cleared in the six yard box to prevent an away lead.

The deadlock was broken on 22 minutes as Kebano drove to the left hand byline and pulled the ball back to where former Hull man Aluko rifled into bottom left hand corner from ten yards out.

With five minutes to go in the half centre half Tomas Kalas flicked Kebano’s corner against the left hand post via a superb reflex save from Maxwell from the edge of the six yard box as Slavisa Jokanovic’s men looked for a second, but on the break Barkhuizen fed McGeady, but his cut inside and shot from the left was saved smartly by Button.

The second half started with Kebano having a shot that Chris Maxwell needed to tip onto the bar and over.

But the yellows stepped up the pace and Daryl Horgan fired in an effort from 25 yards out, that was tipped out of the top left hand corner by Button after fast feet from McGeady on the left.

Daniel Johnson then curled a shot just wide of the right hand post after the substitutes of Callum Robinson and Ben Pearson made immediate impact.

However, against the run of play at that point in the game it was 2-0 as Martin fired into bottom left hand corner from Fredericks’ pass.

The two goal cushion only lasted eight minutes as Barkhuizen, making his first start for the Lilywhites, fired hard and low into the bottom left hand corner from a brilliant McGeady through ball, the No.29 drove into box and fired from 15 yards out after being slipped through by the Irishman in the middle of the park.

But it was 3-1 with 12 minutes left as the ball found its way out to Kebano on the left hand edge of the box and he drove inside and fired into the net via a deflection past Maxwell

Fulham Ticket Details

1 February 2017

Match tickets remain on sale for Preston North End's trip to Fulham on Saturday 4th March, 3pm kick-off.

The game has been selected by Preston Supporters Group for the annual Gentry Day celebration and tickets are still on sale for this fixture. 

PNE have been given an initial allocation of 2125 tickets for this game, and prices are as follows:

Adults £25
Seniors (65 and over) £20
18 to 21-year-olds £20
U18s £1 

Fulham Football Club request that any junior under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult.

Ambulant disabled supporters can also purchase tickets at half of the above prices, and Fulham have recommended that ambulant supporters purchase tickets on Row W where possible. 

The Gentry Day celebration, run annually by supporters to remember those fans who are no longer with us, has become a popular event, with a sell-out away end at Bolton Wanderers the last game where fans donned their suits and bowler hats and this year’s trip to West London is expected to be another memorable day, with a high demand for tickets.

In partnership with the club's travel partner Virgin Trains, PNE will be running a football special for the trip to Fulham in March. After the success of the three football specials run in the past, a direct train will run once again.

Please note that all tickets for the football special have now sold out.

The train will travel from Preston to London Euston and back again after the game, and supporters are asked to make their own way to and from Craven Cottage. 

The football special will depart Preston train station at 10.10 on the Saturday morning, arriving at London Euston at 12.16. The return journey will then depart London Euston at 19.10 after the game, with an arrival time of 21.30 at Preston. 

The train is for PNE supporters travelling to the game only, and will be going direct to London Euston from Preston. 

Supporters will arrive in the capital in plenty of time, with an estimated arrival time of 12.30pm, and an expected departure time of 7pm after the game.

Please note, under law, as the train is travelling to a sporting event, it will be a dry train - no alcohol will be sold on the train, nor is it permitted to be brought or drunk on board. Each carriage will be stewarded. 

Alternative travel is available, with club coach travel also available for this fixture. Coaches are priced at £27 for adults and £25 for concessions and coaches will depart both Deepdale and Leyland at 9am.
