Fulham 1-0 Sheffield United: Ademola Lookman strike boosts home side’s survival hopes

Fulham gave their survival hopes a huge boost as Ademolas Lookman’s strike earned his side a 1-0 victory over relegation rivals Sheffield United.

After a lacklustre first half, Lookman blasted Scott Parker’s side to all three points in the 61st minute, deepening Sheffield United’s plight in the process.

The victory sees Fulham move to within three points of safety. Parker’s men now have 17th-placed Newcastle, who face Manchester United on Sunday evening, firmly in their sights.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United’s Premier League status is hanging by a thread as Chris Wilder’s side remain 14 points from safety, rooted to the bottom of the table.
