CARDIFF, England (AP) — Relegation-threatened Cardiff City secured a 3-1 win over fellow strugglers Fulham on Saturday in the Premier League.

The Welsh side welcomed the west London club to the Cardiff City Stadium having lost three of the last four domestic outings.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side ended that barren run, courtesy of a brace from club captain Steven Caulker.

He gave the hosts the lead on the stroke of halftime, prodding home from close range after Craig Noone's drilled cross.

Lewis Holtby equalized for the visitors in the 59th minute before Caulker restored Cardiff's lead in the 67th.

Sascha Riether's own goal in the 71st compounded Fulham's misery, and they remain at the foot of the table. Cardiff moved into 18th, level on points with West Brom in 17th place.
