David Nugent really does know his way to goal. Alex Neil's one-time England veteran sealed our fate at Deepdale in December but in the blinding glare of early Spring's sunlight, the 35-year-old's expertly diverted own goal handed Fulham a lifeline in their quest for a place in the automatics. Cheers, Dave!

A 1-1 draw against Derby County at Pride Park is no reason to be downbeat or crestfallen as our unbeaten record on Friday evenings is still very much intact. A small triumph, you could say, and amongst the Wayne Rooney rectum sniffing fest, the Whites managed to restore face, kind of, after last Saturday's gale force flogging.

Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, then the humiliation is all ours. Bottom of the table Barnsley, commanded by a bloke that dresses like a TK Maxx mannequin, did the double over promotion-chasing Fulham with an extraordinary 3-0 thumping down by the river.

Tuesday night's fortuitous results meant that Fulham could seize 2nd in the standings if they managed to beat Millwall at The Den on Wednesday evening. They didn't. A 1-1 draw, away, on one of the shoddiest surfaces I've seen outside of Sunday League football is nowhere near a terrible outcome, but it is very "Fulhamish" indeed that the Whites didn't take the initiative when it was virtually dangled on a string before them.

The end is nigh! January's a terribly arduous month laden with newfangled vegan atrocities and alcohol abstinence, but the mid-term transfer window offers us a shot of interim escapism that we all madly lust for. Come 11pm, Friday 31st, though, we'll know exactly who's destined to front our bid for promotion in the coming weeks and months and like it or not, we'll just have to stomach whatever's served up for us.

There's a good meme I'm thinking of with Bart Simpson holding a cake with 'at least you tried' piped on top. Basically, the cake eventually gets tipped into a bin, and that's more or less where our hopes of progressing in the FA Cup went, as Manchester City smashed four past Fulham without reply.

I wasn't at The Valley but I must admit, I'm actually glad I wasn't able to make the trip in the end. 7pm finishes are a soul destroyer, but Fulham's torpid 0-0 draw against Charlton Athletic was also a dispiriting ordeal to digest. I hear there were in excess of 2,700 in the Jimmy Seed stand and I'm deeply sorry for all of you.

Not really the return to SW6 that Djed Spence and Patrick Roberts were dreaming of, and that makes the victory all the sweeter. That's five wins in five from the weekend's early kick-offs and it's a damn long way for Middlesbrough's fan base to come for a 1-0 loss. Mock our home support when you barely get 10,000 at the Riverside? Guess you got what you deserved in the end. We never asked for clappers anyway.
