Fulham beat Hull to steer clear of drop zone

LONDON - Fulham eased away from the Premier League's bottom three with a comfortable 2-0 victory over struggling Hull City at Craven Cottage on Monday.

Bobby Zamora headed in a rebound two minutes before halftime after Damien Duff's shot was not held by Hull keeper Boaz Myhill and then set up Diomansy Kamara for Fulham's second goal midway through the second period.

Victory lifted Fulham up to 12th in the table with 10 points while Hull, who have managed just one away league win in 2009, remained in the relegation zone.
