Fulham could not muster a second half comeback against Aston Villa on Saturday, but in seasons gone by the Whites have staged resilient comebacks in encounters where a damning loss was virtually written on the walls. It's also nearly been two years since the Cottagers beat Reading 4-2 after being 2 goals behind at home, so in homage to that particular scalp against the Royals, here are 5 of the best comebacks in the club's rich existence.

In light of midfield maestro Tom Cairney's absence from Fulham's starting fold, many a Whites fan would have been left scratching their head to who would temporarily take the batten from the influential Scotsman.
