JUST IN: Pajaziti scores three goals as the U21s defeat of the seven…

The first goal for Fulham came from the Albanian under-21 international, who put the young Whites up in the seventh minute. Kristian Šekularac headed over Harvey Collins and in via the far post from six yards out after Pajaziti’s corner was wonderfully placed.

Soon after, Terrell Works had a chance to increase Fulham’s advantage, but his curling shot veered just wide, then Collins made a great stop to deny Josh King and Callum Osmand. After Matt Dibley-Dias patiently set him up, Works beat the Reading keeper on the 26th minute when the energetic winger found the bottom corner probing shots.

The Royals had a fleeting opportunity when Harvey Araujo interrupted Jahmari Clarke’s promising run. However, Collins returned to action shortly after, expertly saving Osmand’s rasping effort from Giorgos Okkas’ cross that looked to be heading for the top corner. Ten minutes before the half, Pajaziti, who had been sent in by Šekularac, finished rounding the goalkeeper with ease to give Fulham a third goal thanks to their fluid football play. Three minutes before halftime, the midfield player made it four goals with his second of the game after scoring a cross from Devan Tanton

Before the half, there was still time for one more goal. Works punished some shoddy set-piece defending by beating Collins from close range, putting the hosts ahead 5-0 at the half. As soon as the second period began, it was six goals, as Pajaziti finished his hat-trick by coolly slotting away a penalty after King had been impeded in the area.
