The England international was terribly unlucky to see Gera's strike hit the post and rebound off his back for the opener. Following the mistakes of recent weeks, for once, no blame could be attached.
Quiet afternoon for the former Fulham loanee. Tasked to keep Dembele out of the action rather than supplement Thomas. Performed defensive duties admirably.
Troubled at times by Dempsey but excelled when allowed to charge forward. Provided a constant outlet for Brunt.
The towering Swede was a menace in the Fulham area as he twice went close with headers from corners. Baird had to be at his most athletic to clear one effort off the goal line. Went straight down tunnel for treatment when he was taken off for Ibanez.
Ditched his defensive duties to power on to Brunt's through ball to fire past Schwarzer. Will regret not being present to stop Gera shooting to open the scores. Handled the Hungarian more diligently for the rest of the proceedings.
Understanding has developed with Mulumbu. When one pushed forward, the other stayed back. Denied a chance by a smart Salcido interception.
Added real energy to the Baggies midfield. Saw one rasping drive fly past Schwarzer's post.
Followed his star turn against Manchester United with another fine display. Picked out a tremendous pass to find Mulumbu for the equaliser, then followed that up with a similar ball to put Thomas into space for the second. Constant thorn in Fulham's side.
Impressive stuff from the lone striker. Stretched Hangeland and Hughes across the pitch. Duly rewarded with tap-in from Thomas' cross to kick start his second Baggies spell with a goal. Afternoon brought to early end with apparent injury and replaced by Bednar.
The big Australian had no chance with either goals as the Baggies sharp finishing left him with no chance. Tipped Scharner effort wide to keep side in contest.
The Republic of Ireland international needed to be treated for twisted blood as Thomas danced passed him. Was outsmarted by his opposite number as he laid on Fortune's strike.
Bailed out by partner Hangeland when his slip and weak back pass put Fortune through. Not at usual assertive best.
Failed to provide anchor in midfield and regularly over-ran. Hooked for Riise as manager Mark Hughes went in search of equaliser.
Left for dead by Brunt when he drifted inside to cause chaos. Made one crucial interception to pick the ball off Scharner's toes in the first half.
One of trio of ex-Baggies players in Fulham ranks. His thunderbolt bounced off the post and Carson's back to open the scoring in fortunate circumstances.
Former Baggies captain granted warm reception. Disappointed on the pitch as ex-team-mates grabbed game by scruff of neck.
Frustrating performance from the Senegal international on his return to The Hawthorns. Wasted glorious chance when played into space in first half. Taken off for Andy Johnson.
Surprisingly tame stuff from the American. Didn't impose himself on the game and saw match pass by from out wide.
- 13 G. Myhill
Shored up defence when brought on for ailing Olson on 55 minutes. Dove at Johnson's feet to deny returning striker.
- 12 S. Reid
- 17 G. Dorrans
Came on in 87th minute as Di Matteo looked to shore up midfield.
- 31 S. Cox
Continued Fortune's excellent work when introduced to fray on 55 minutes. Saw an effort ruled out for offside and set up opportunity for Scharner.
- 12 D. Stockdale
- 32 R. Halliche
Norwegian winger brought on in 73rd minute as Fulham tried to press for leveller. Ball rarely sprayed to his side.
- 26 K. Dikgacoi
- 21 E. Johnson
Ten-months of injury again came to an end in the 58th minute. Added trademark buzz to Fulham attack but no clear opportunity fell his way.
