BOURNEMOUTH, England - Already relegated Fulham won its first away match of the Premier League season by overcoming Bournemouth 1-0 on Saturday.
Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a penalty eight minutes into the second half after being brought down by Jack Simpson, ending a goal drought stretching back to January.
It handed Scott Parker a second victory as caretaker Fulham manager after starting with five successive losses leading the 19th-placed team.
But it meant Eddie Howe lost his 500th match in charge of mid-table Bournemouth.
