Fulham defeated Leeds United 1-0 at Elland Road this afternoon.

Leeds United suffered a 1-0 defeat to Fulham on Saturday, with Neil Redfearn's side suffering back-to-back defeats since their outstanding home win against Derby County.

Since then Leeds have lost 4-1 to Ipswich Town and now 1-0 to a Fulham side that climbed up to 14th as a result, while Redfearn's side dropped to 19th.

It is a worrying sign for a side who should have had more than enough to defeat Saturday's visitors, with Leeds' strike-force a match for a defence prone to conceeding a goal or two.  

But Fulham scored what proved to be the only goal of the game through Hugo Rodallega and they held firm, leaving Leeds to rue another missed opportunity.

With a busy festive period approaching, Redfearn will know how vital it is to turn things around permanently, especially when you consider Leeds' poor away form to date.
