Fulham’s 1-0 win at Liverpool on Sunday moved them level on points with Brighton and only one off fellow relegation rivals Newcastle.
Scott Parker’s side remain in the Premier League’s bottom three but have momentum on their side and are firmly on the march to safety.
Here, the PA news agency takes a look at what has changed at Craven Cottage.
Late arrivals boost squad
Tactical switch brings consistency
Brave Parker gambles for victories
Leicester once again proved a turning point. Defeat at home to the Foxes at the beginning of February left Fulham eight points from safety and with only 17 games left to play. Draws were no longer enough. With Andersen and Adarabioyo in fine form, along with Paris St Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, Parker trusted his defence to be good enough to play in a back four. The formation change coincided with winter signing Josh Maja entering the team and his brace at Everton clinched a first win in 12 weeks. With more players now able to get in the box and the full-backs still pushing forward, goals from Lookman and Mario Lemina in vital triumphs over Sheffield United and Liverpool vindicated the bravery of the former midfielder and blew the relegation battle wide open.
