Bottom-of-the-table Bolton Wanderers finished a disastrous season without a single away league win as Fulham won to move up to 20th in the Championship.
Tom Cairney’s curling second-half goal was enough to earn Fulham a third win from their final four home games.
The Cottagers had the better of the few chances, as Bolton slumped to their 26th league defeat of the season.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s side almost added late goals but Bolton keeper Ben Amos denied Matt Smith and Ross McCormack.
Fulham have now not lost in their last 15 home league meetings with Wanderers.
With a final points tally of 30, Bolton finished with their lowest total for a season since they were relegated from the Premier League in 1995-96.
