Former Leeds United striker broke his duck for Fulham against Nottingham Forest.
The Scotsman signed for £11 million from Leeds United in the summer, in a deal widely criticised as over-priced, and his poor early season form has only served to worsen the perception of the deal.
In his seventh Championship appearance for Fulham, McCormack found the net, with an impressive curling free-kick in a thriller at the City Ground.
The striker halved Forest's 2-0 lead, before capping a turnaround to put them 3-2 ahead (above) midway through the second half.
In form Forest however turned around the deficit, with Britt Assombalonga scoring a hat-trick and Michail Antonio and Jamie Paterson scoring the other two, to secure a memorable 5-3 win and leave Fulham rooted to the bottom of the table.
