Adam the hero again as Stoke sink Fulham 1-0
STOKE-ON-TRENT (AFP) - Charlie Adam was Stoke's hero again as the Scotland midfielder scored the only goal in his side's 1-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.
Adam bagged the winner in Stoke's previous match in front of their own fans against QPR at the Britannia Stadium and the former Liverpool star made the decisive intervention once more to lift City up to 11th place in the Premier League.
His first half goal extended Stoke's unbeaten home league run to 13 games stretching back to February, while ninth-placed Fulham are now winless in their last five games.
In driving rain, Martin Jol's visitors who made the brighter start, with Giorgos Karagounis firing just wide in the second minute.
