Aboubakar Kamara’s two goals against QPR were his first of the season

Stand-in striker Aboubakar Kamara scored twice as Fulham overcame Queens Park Rangers to move up to fourth in the Championship table.

Kamara, brought in to replace suspended top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic, coolly took his chances after Rangers stunned the hosts with an early goal.

The visitors pressed high from the start and were rewarded for their attacking approach to the west London derby when Jordan Hugill forced the ball over the line from close range after Todd Kane’s cross was parried into his path by goalkeeper Marek Rodak.

Another dangerous Kane cross almost led to a second, with Fulham defender Tim Ream seeing his attempted clearance come off the post.

Fulham recovered from their sluggish start and, with their first effort on target, Kamara headed home his first goal of the season.

Both sides had further first-half chances, Rodak keeping out Nahki Wells and what would have been an Alfie Mawson own goal either side of Ivan Cavaleiro hitting the woodwork for Fulham.

Kamara then punished QPR keeper Joe Lumley for a poor clearance, making the most of the time and space afforded to him to find the bottom corner just after the hour.

More to follow.
