Norwich City's horrendous away record against Fulham may still be standing strong but it was the Canaries who came out on top the last time the team's met at Carrow Road.
That was in May 2015 and was a dead rubber, with Norwich looking to maintain momentum ahead of their play-off campaign and the Cottagers safe from relegation.
Alex Neil's team didn't take their foot of the pedal though and romped to a 4-2 win to bring an end to a run of 17 matches without a win over the west London side.
Goals from Bradley Johnson, crowned player of the season ahead of kick-off, and Nathan Redmond put the hosts 2-0 ahead and Graham Dorrans made sure of third place in the final Championship standings with a third in the 81st minute.
That sparked some late entertainment though as Fulham striker Matt Smith volleyed a goal back, before Johnson fired in from his trademark 25-yard distance to take his goal tally for the season to 15.
The midfielder did find the net one last time though, heading past John Ruddy by mistake in the 90th minute for an own goal which made the final score 4-2 to City.
It looked like the Canaries were going to end their awful away record against the Cottagers earlier this season, leading 2-0 at Craven Cottage at half-time to sit top of the table, thanks to two penalties from Dorrans.
