Martin Jol marked his first match at the helm of Fulham with a 3-0 win as the Cottagers cruised past Faroe Islands outfit NSI Runavik in the first leg of their Europa League qualifying tie at Craven Cottage.
Jol began pre-season training with his new squad just last week in preparation for the first-round clash with the part-timers of Runavik and a confident Fulham opened the scoring in the 33rd minute courtesy of Damien Duff’s rasping drive.
Danny Murphy doubled the hosts’ lead just after the hour mark with a coolly dispatched penalty, before Andy Johnson opened his season’s account with a composed finish in the 70th minute to ensure the Premier League side take a commanding lead to the Faroe Islands for the second leg on July 7.
