Iwobi started the game, as did Calvin Bassey and the duo helped the Cottagers to a nervy win against the Championship side. Fulham scored first through Carlos Vinicius in the 12th minute, and saw out the half with the slim lead. In the 72nd minute, the summer signing found the back of the net, his first goal and on his debut for the club. The visitors pulled one back, Borja Sainz (75′) reduced the deficit, but Fulham held on for the victory and progressed to the fourth round where they’ll next face Ipswich Town.
