Fulham suffered a floodlight failure just before half-time in Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with leaders Manchester United at Craven Cottage.
The match was goalless when the ground was plunged into darkness in the 43rd minute of the contest.

The players remained on the pitch briefly before referee Kevin Friend led them off towards the dressing rooms.
Around five minutes after the lights had gone out, the power returned and the players returned to the pitch to play out the remainder of the game.
Manchester United held their nerve to claim a 1-0 victory thanks to Wayne Rooney's fine effort in the 79th minute.
The Premier League leaders, who moved 10 points clear of Man City, then had to dash across London to make their 9pm train back to Manchester.
