Anthony Knockaert proved to be the difference in the Friday night Championship game between Fulham and Middlesbrough, scoring the solitary goal of the match just six minutes in.

After playing a part in the build up, he made his went into the penalty area and positioned himself perfectly to score from a yard out after the sizzling cross from Joe Bryan.

From then on the confidence was flowing, as he tried his luck with another five shots on goal, albeit not as successfully.

He was a constant thorn in the side of the Boro defence, enjoying 11 touches inside the box and sending 23 passes into the final third.

His hard work shouldn't be overlooked, though, as he helped Fulham out with an impressive 10 ball recoveries during his 90 minutes on the pitch, too.
