Greening Insists Patched-Up Fulham Won't Be in Dogfight


Byline: David Smith

Greening lurked unmarked on the left side of Portsmouth's penalty area in the 75th minute, when Damien Duff robbed hesitant Nadir Belhadj of the ball before firing a low cross which his grateful team-mate steered home.

Fulham just about deserved their first goal in four league games, although Portsmouth were easily the better team during the first half. …
