Fulham's Aluko Has Contributed To 20 Goals This Season After Scoring Against Aston VillaFulham strengthened their playoff chances after beating Aston Villa 3-1 at Craven Cottage on game week 43.

Nigeria national-teamer Sone Aluko helped Fulham to secure their third win on the bounce after netting his eighth goal in the second-tier on 56 minutes.

A cross found the winger and his volley hit Aston Villa goalkeeper Johnstone but still crossed the line, giving the Cottagers a crucial 2-1 lead in the process.

Aluko had a big chance to open the scoring for Fulham in the 17th minute but the goalkeeper made a magnificent save to deny him, and he saw his shot blocked in the 67th minute before drawing another save from the keeper with 11 minutes left on the clock.

The former Hull City and Rangers star has contributed to 20 goals (8 goals, 12 assists) in 42 appearances for Fulham this season.

Fulham, who occupy the last playoff spot, are back in action on Saturday when they travel to Huddersfield Town.
