Bryan Ruiz heads the winner in added time against Reading, Saturday 17th January 2015

Here's a picture that former club photographer Ken Coton would love to have taken!

It was taken by Ian Tuttle of the estimable Back Page Images, headed by Ashwater friend Javier Garcia.

On the day, Javier was covering QPR, who were playing some Manchester team, and was not present at his beloved Craven Cottage. Luckily his colleague was in place to capture the dramatic moment of Fulham's winning goal.

From Ken's seat in the Johnny Haynes stand, it looked as though the goal was a simple nod-in for Bryan, but this picture captures what an acrobatic leap it was. The picture shows the defenders and the goalkeeper perfectly stranded, and the ball beautifully on its way to the back of the net.

Nice one!
