Babel stunner sends Cardiff closer to relegation from EPL
Babel scored his third goal in four matches with a curling effort from 25 yards (meters) in the 77th minute at Craven Cottage.
With relegation rival Brighton drawing with Newcastle 1-1 later Saturday, third-to-last Cardiff slipped four points behind Brighton with two games left in the battle to avoid becoming the final team demoted along with Fulham and Huddersfield.
Fulham’s run of decent form under caretaker manager Scott Parker has come too late to save the team from the drop.
The defender appeared to have been out cold as he crumpled to the ground. Although he initially got back to his feet, he then required treatment for eight minutes before eventually being taken off on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask.
Odoi did not need to be taken to hospital, however.
