LONDON (Reuters) - Fulham became the first English side to score six goals or more in three successive matches for 88 years as they thumped Birmingham City 6-2 on Tuesday.

Fabio Carvalho struck two for the Championship leaders who were 4-1 up by halftime while Neeskens Kebano, Tom Cairney and Antonee Robinson were also on target.

A Mark Roberts own goal began the rout.

Fulham also beat Bristol City 6-2 on Saturday while Reading were thrashed 7-0.

The last English club to achieve the feat was Chester City in the 1933-34 season.
