Fulham dominated all areas as they beat Leeds 2-0 to keep up the pressure on Cardiff City for the final automatic promotion place.

A goal in each half from Kevin McDonald and Aleksander Mitrovic ensured another three points for Fulham, as they extended their unbeaten run to 18 games.

The Cottagers enjoyed 60% of the game at Craven Cottage and they had almost double the amount of attempts on goal compared to visitors Leeds.

Fulham managed just over 25% of their attempts on target with four of their 17 attempts on target.

Leeds managed just two attempts on target from nine attempts during the 90 minutes with Caleb Ekuban having the best of them as he was denied by Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli when through on goal. It proved a crucial miss as Fulham broke to double their lead.

The defeat for Leeds saw them drop back into the bottom half of the Championship table on goal difference.
