(MENAFN - Kora)

Caulker, who was part of Roy Hodgson's England squad in midweek, concluded a listless first half with a close-range finish in stoppage time



Fulham responded well and levelled before the hour through Lewis Holtby but Caulker headed a second and an unfortunate own goal by Sascha Riether completed the visitors' misery



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Cardiff are now only below fourth-bottom West Brom on goal difference, while Fulham remain bottom with 16 losses from their last 21 league outings



Felix Magath handed a first Premier League start to Kostas Mitroglou but the most eye-catching selection came alongside Fulham's record signing in attack, with 19-year-old Cauley Woodrow given a surprise debut



Woodrow managed four goals in 21 loan appearances for League Two Southend United earlier this season



Fulham benefited from a 10th-minute opening as John Heitinga's quick free-kick caught the Cardiff defence napping, but Ashkan Dejagah fired wastefully into the side-netting from a tight angle with Mitroglou well-placed centrally



Visiting goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg punched to safety in the 16th minute after Fraizer Campbell shimmied past a pair of challenges to unleash a venomous strike



Kenwyne Jones headed into Stekelenburg's arms from a Jordon Mutch cross and the duo combined again in the 44th minute to offer the former Ajax keeper some far more taxing work - a stunning reflex save thwarting Jones from close quarters



Unfortunately for Fulham, they failed to effectively clear from the corners that followed and when Craig Noone's low cross was deflected across the six-yard box Caulker was left with a tap-in



Magath's men made a livelier start to the second period, Holtby testing David Marshall in the Cardiff goal from Woodrow's knockdown, but Jones should have doubled the hosts' lead in the 50th minute as he headed wide at the back post on the end of a searching Noone cross



Alex Kacaniklic, a half-time replacement for John Arne Riise, was the next man to carry the Fulham threat as he shot off target following a solo run, before Mitroglou made a dreadful hash of trying to turn a Kieran Richardson centre goalwards



But the pressure told in the 59th minute when an inswinging corner from substitute Giorgos Karagounis was flicked on by Heitinga at the near post for Holtby to convert



The set-piece defending from both teams showed scant sign of improving and Stekelenburg was forced into another fine stop as Kim Bo-Kyung fired through a crowded penalty area



Stekelenburg should have completed an arguably easier save from the resulting corner but he could not keep the ball out when Caulker rose unmarked to head his second



Cardiff sealed the points in scrappy fashion as another excellent Noone cross was bundled goalwards by Campbell. Stekelenburg's point-blank stop was impressive but the loose ball cannoned into Riether and trickled over the line



In the 77th minute, Mitroglou got his lines right in front of goal but Marshall saved excellently, while Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell saw a late header ruled out for offsid
