Fulham's £11million striker Ross McCormack eased the pressure on boss Felix Magath with the only goal of the Cottagers' 1-0 Capital One Cup victory at Brentford.

The forward latched onto Chris David's defence-splitting through ball to slide a low shot into the far corner to settle a hard-fought west London derby.

Brentford secured their first Sky Bet Championship victory of the season as Stuart Dallas grabbed the winner early in the second half to beat struggling Blackpool 2-1 at Bloomfield Road.

Nathan Delfouneso had put the Tangerines ahead with just their second goal of the campaign, but Alex Pritchard levelled things up after 37 minutes and Dallas' goal though seven minutes into the second half handed the Bees their opening win on their return to the second tier after 21 years.
