WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) Dimitar Berbatov inspired Fulham to a surprise 2-1 win at West Bromwich Albion in the English Premier League on Tuesday, helping the Londoners end a four-match winless run that had dropped them close to relegation trouble.

Sweden winger Alex Kacaniklic grabbed Fulham's 58th-minute winner but it was Berbatov who impressed most, the former Manchester United striker opening the scoring in the 40th for the league's first goal of 2013 and impressing throughout with his vision and skill.

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, on loan from Chelsea, equalized for West Brom from close range four minutes after the break as the home side went in search of a victory to keep pace with the European hopefuls.

Fulham's second away win of the campaign lifts it provisionally seven points clear of the bottom three.
