West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Fulham – Premier League – 24 September 2011
These two sides have endured poor starts to the new Premier League season and this game was, in keeping with those starts, a rather mediocre affair.
The Cottagers bossed the first half but couldn’t find a way through the Baggies’ defence while in the second-half, Roy Hodgson’s side looked far more accomplished but they also couldn’t find a goal.
It could be another long season for both these sides.
