Final score: Fulham 4-1 West Ham United

90 mins: It is all over at Motspur Park as Fulham win 4-1. United's youthful team played some good football but the hosts' extra experience eventually told. Alex Dyer will have drawn positives from several of his side's performances. 

89 mins: There will be three minutes of added time. Can United get one more back?

86 mins: The visitors are probably playing some of their best football of the match and are knocking the ball around well

82 mins: United's youngsters are still battling hard in search of a second goal and 'Gala is continuing to will the side forward

79 mins: Stech comes out quickly to get to a through-ball before Smith. It has been an encouraging display from the stopper, who could do nothing about  the Fulham goals

76 mins: Fulham make two changes as Lewis Smith comes on for Nevland and Danny Hoesen is introduced in place of Seol. The United defenders will be pleased to see the back of the departing internationals who posed a constant threat

75 mins: Fulham think they have a fifth but Chris Smalling's header is ruled out for a push on 'Gala

72 mins: Dyer makes his final changes of the night as Anthony Edgar makes way for Daniel Kearns and Grasser is replaced by Christian Montano 

69 mins: To give an idea of the youthfulness of the visiting side tonight, Stokes is the only player in claret and blue over 20

67 mins: Goal! The hosts restore their three-goal lead with a great shot from Wayne Brown. The No7 picked the ball up 30 yards out and beat Stech with a sublime strike

64 mins: A great cross from Anthony Edgar on the left touchline is just too high for the on-rushing Balint Bajner

62 mins: After a crazy opening period to the second half the game seems to have settled down a bit, although chances are still being created at both ends

58 mins: The visitors seem to have been given a lift by the goal. Stokes is fouled 30 yards out and from the resulting free-kick Stanislas' dangerous ball into the area is claimed by Zuberbuhler

54 mins: Goal! United get one back as Eyjolfsson heads in an O' Neill cross following Stanislas' quickly taken corner

54 mins: Dyer makes his first change by bringing Matthew Fry on for Miller

52 mins: From the resulting corner Stech makes another great save - tipping a header over the bar

52 mins: Stech has to dive to his left to turn the ball round the post as Fulham try to force a fourth 

47 mins: Goal! And it is three soon after as Julian Gray forces the ball over the line after good work from Seol

46 mins: Goal! Fulham double their lead within the first minute of the second half of Seol fires in with his left foot from the edge of the area

45 mins: Half-time at Motspur Park and it is the hosts that go in ahead

45 mins: As we approach half-time. Miller is forced to head behind under pressure. Stech comes out well to punch it clear

44 mins: Nevland is proving to be quite a threat and Stech reacts quickly to smother another cross from the Fulham No9

42 mins: Ashley Miller goes into the book for a late tackle

39 mins: GOAL! But this time it does count as Nevland slides in to convert a Seol cross on the six yard line

38 mins: The home side are starting to create chances. A Milsom shot is saved by Stech before the home support think their side have taken the lead, but Nevland punched the ball into the net and is booked

35 mins: Eyjolfsson is strong to shrug Seol Ki-Hyeon off the ball

33 mins: ' Gala is being his usual vocal self as organises the back four

32 mins: Balint Bajner has shown some nice touches so far and plays another deft ball into the path of Stanislas on the left

27 mins: Alex Dyer, who is in charge of the team again tonight, shouts instructions to his side from the dugout as they press forward

26 mins: Tony Stokes is captaining the side and starts in centre midfield after playing up front against West Brom

21 mins: Robert Milsom fouls Georg Grasser 25 yards out. Stanislas tries his luck from almost the same place as before and he again forces the Fulham No1 into another great save

20 mins: Andranik cannot continue so Matthew Saunders comes on to replace him

18 mins: Good defensive work from Holmar Eyjolfsson as he shepherds the ball out of play

16 mins:  Stanislas wins a corner with some neat footwork. The game is paused while Andranik receives treatment but when it resumes Stanislas' corner is headed just over by Bondz ' Gala

13 mins: The rain that has been falling on west London for most of the day seems to have stopped for the time being but the playing surface is still showing the effects of the wet weather

10 mins: Stokes is tripped 25 yards from goal. Junior Stanislas steps up and curls in a fantastic free-kick which Pascal Zuberbuhler has to turn behind

8 mins: Vital tackle from Ryan O Neill as he throws himself in front of a Fulham shot

6 mins: The visitors again line up in the 4-3-1-2 formation used against West Bromwich Albion last week

4 mins: First shot on goal is a fierce drive from Erik Nevland that goes inches wide of Marek Stech's right-hand post

2 mins: Two very contrasting teams on show tonight. Fulham name five internationals in their side while United have a very youthful look about them
