Fulham forced a corner from that last move, but it's a poor one and comes to nothing.
Fulham pressing, City under the kosh a little. Bassong does well to snuff out a promising Fulham attack.
Fulham full of confidence now. Riether fires a shot wide for the home side.
That's a hammer blow for City. Fulham finding their feet after being put on the back foot for most of the opening period, and capitalise. Heads up, lads. Only 16 minutes gone.
GOAL: Bent - who'd done nothing until now - has just scored for Fulham. City's positive start is undone.
Kasami with a free kick effort for Fulham, but it doesn't challenge Bunn, who collects.
28 years since we beat Fulham at Craven Cottage. Is this the night? The boys certainly look up for it...
Fulham with a strike now from Sidwell. Bunn saves comfortably.
City threaten once again but Fulham escape. City definitely carrying the bigger threat here so far.
Elmander hoiks a volley towards goal, but the Fulham stopper isn't tested and makes the save.
Fulham allowing City to run at them a bit during the opening stages. Positive play from the visitors so far.

We're off. Come on, lads!
Gary Hooper is rested tonight then, but City are lining up with a three-man attack. Elmander supported by Murphy and Redmond.
What a confidence booster a win here would be for both sides.
Players are out... four minutes to the off.
Fulham's line-up tonight:
Stekelenburg; Riether, Hangeland, Burn, Richardson; Karagounis, Sidwell; Dejagah, Kasami, Kačaniklić; Bent.
SUBS: Stockdale, Hughes, Rodallega, Dempsey, Christensen, Tankovic, Dembèlè.
First and most important, you'll want to know that an upcoming Primary Schools Day at Craven Cottage is all sold out. Just so you know. We're also being reminded (quite a lot) about an ignominious day for Canaries fans in the 2005/06 season - but we're not going to re-open that particular wound here.
Relevantly: Brede Hangeland could return to action tonight - although is unlikely to start - after a period out following surgery, while we can expect a similarly youthful look to the Fulham line-up as we saw at Carrow Road.
Little over three hours until kick-off. Let's begin the build up with a look at what the opposition are saying...
