Ghanaian youth striker Terry Ablade opened his goal-scoring account for Fulham U23 as they picked their second win in two games, with a 2-1 victory against West Bromwich Albion on Monday.
Goals from Jean-Pierre Tiehi and Terry Ablade was all that the young Whites needed to contain late pressure to snatch all three points.
Fulham broke the deadlock in the 22nd minute when a perfect curling cross found Tiehi who was left with a free header, which he comfortably put away.
In the 39th minute, Fulham doubled their lead, thanks to a superb pass from Carvalho, whose looping ball over the top found Ablade whose composed half volley rolled into the far corner.
West Brom came close a couple of times before eventually scoring one back in the 72nd minute. Fin Thorndike cleverly evaded several tackles in the penalty box before smashing the ball into the far corner.
The result means Fulham now sit in second place, with a game in hand over the sides around them.
