(London, GBR) - Manchester United overcame a floodlight failure to win 1-0 at Fulham through a late Wayne Rooney goal on Saturday as Alex Ferguson's side went 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League. An open first half saw the woodwork rattled four times, with Bryan Ruiz hitting the post for Fulham, while Patrice Evra, Fulham defender Brede Hangeland and Rooney all sent the ball against the frame of the hosts' goal. A floodlight failure in the 43rd minute plunged Craven Cottage into darkness and forced the players off the pitch, but they returned to complete the first half after the lights came back on.
