Fulham edged closer to booking their spot in the Championship play-off final, as they beat Cardiff City in the first-leg of their play-off semi-final.
Goals from Josh Onomah and Neeskens Kebano saw Scott Parker’s side take a two-goal lead into the second-leg at Craven Cottage later this week.
One player that played a key role in their win on the night was Michael Hector, with the former Chelsea defender catching the eye with a strong performance in the heart of the Fulham defence.
Can you score full marks on the ultimate Fulham quiz?
Hector also preserved Fulham’s clean sheet on the night against Cardiff with an impressive tackle on Robert Glatzel, who looked destined to score from close-range.
Hector has made 23 appearances for the Cottagers since arriving from Chelsea in the January transfer window, and it’s safe to say that he’s made a positive impact in their bid to return to the Premier League this term.
Plenty of Fulham supporters took to social media to issue high-praise for Hector after this recent showing against Cardiff City.

Hector deserves huge credit for that unreal last gasp challenge to prevent that certain goal in the first half, wouldve been a different story if Cardiff went 1-0 up! #FFC

Get in. Parker tactics spot on. Onomah proving me wrong. Reed really disciplined which helps TC. Christie excellent. Hector a mountain. Lovely #ffc
