Fulham Reserves 1-3 Pompey Reserves

Pompey kicked off the reserve season with a rare win, as they overcame Fulham away last night thanks to goals from Noe Pamarot, Gael N'Lundulu and Kanu.

Below is the official match report from the Pompey Site...

Kanu returned to Pompey action, picking up from where he left off by clinching victory for the Blues. Fulham's Motspur Park may be a far cry from Wembley but the Nigerian was no less clinical, finishing the scoring with a late header.

Noe Pamarot and Gael N'Lundulu had earlier put Pompey ahead as a side containing a mixture of youth and experience got their Premier Reserve League South campaign off to a perfect start.

The game started slowly but Matt Ritchie and N'Lundulu linked up well, with the latter firing narrowly wide early on.

But the Blues soon got going and David Nugent brought a fine save from David Stockdale after twisting and turning the Fulham defence.

Nugent had another go moments later but again found the opposition keeper in impressive form, although this time the flag was raised for offside.

Pompey deservedly took the lead on 40 minutes. Ritchie found PAMAROT with a pin-point cross that the French defender dispatched with a diving header.

Before the half was over, Stockdale tipped Nugent's shot past the post and N'Lundulu sent in a tantalising cross from the right that was begging for the slightest touch from an advancing attacker.

Half Time: Fulham 0 Pompey 1

One of Pompey's brightest stars on the night, N'LUNDULU, put Pompey further ahead shortly after the interval when he raced through a static defence. His shot was well saved by Stockdale but the loose ball fell to his feet, giving him the simple task of tapping home from close range.

The Blues were still celebrating when Fulham broke up the other end and Luke Wilson put in a low cross that Jonathan Wilson tapped into an empty net.

The hosts were sensing that they could rescue something now and should have been level but Courtney Harris fired over from point-blank range.

Jamie Ashdown then made a string of fine saves to keep Pompey ahead.

First he claimed the ball at Lewis Cumber`s feet, before getting his fingertips to a cross which did just enough to distract Karim Laribi, forcing the striker to head wide.

Finally, he made a tremendous flying save to keep out Wayne Brown's well-struck shot.
With Fulham looking threatening, Pompey hit them on the counter-attack. Ritchie found James Hurst with a cross-field ball, who in turn hit a pin-point pass to KANU, allowing the substitute striker to clinch victory.

I am liking the sound of Ritchie and N'Lundulu, they sem to play well in every match report. Two for the future I think.

I thought we might see some of the youngsters play in the Carling Cup this season but having drawn Chelsea I am not sure. There are too few reserve games to keep them occupied. Good start though.

ashdown might get a run out, as might nugent, pamarot and arnie, but i cant see many others making an impression on the first team in the caring cup.

i think you are right Dave and this game needs to be put into perspective this was a mismatch against kids, but you can only beat what's put in front of you.

Nice to see our reserves win for a change, irrespective of the 'strong' team out there, we have in the past been pretty week in that division...
