A stirring Fulham comeback sees the points shared on a pulsating night by the Thames.

Fulham kicked off the match attacking towards the Putney End after Slaviša Jokanović made one change to the side that beat Barnsley 4-2 at Oakwell on Saturday with Kevin McDonald coming in for Tom Cairney.

Graham Dorrans managed to successfully convert two penalties in the first half to give his side the lead going in to half time.

With just over half an hour to go Stefan Johansen managed to give the Whites a fighting chance after Chris Martin powered through towards the Norwich goal.

With 25 minutes to go and after a scintillating piece of play involving Johansen, Lucas Piazon and Chris Martin it was the Scottish International who managed to level things up after carefully slotting past McGovern.

Norwich came close to opening the lead before the ten minute mark after Robbie Brady’s corner found the head of Timm Klose but his effort missed David Button’s post by inches.

The home side immediately pegged back with an effort of their own after Johansen managed to thread a well-timed pass to feet of Sone Aluko but his shot curled just wide of the woodwork.

The visitors were unlucky not to go ahead after another well worked Brady corner when the ball managed to cannon of his head before going out for a free kick. The Norwich attacker didn’t appear to know what hit him.

Fifteen minutes in to the game and the Canaries were awarded a penalty after a foul from Scott Malone on Jacob Murphy. Dorrans comfortably stepped up and scored after coolly placing it down the middle.

Just after the 25 minute mark Aluko had a golden chance to put his side level after he managed to control a wayward clearance. Unfortunately the attacker took one too many touches and failed to find the target.

Five minutes from time Malone was adjudged to pull down Cameron Jerome in the box and despite protests from both the Fulham players and fans Dorrans stepped up again and converted excellently in to the bottom corner of the net to double the lead for his side.

The Whites came close to getting back in to the game in the last chance of the first half. Malone drilled a cross in to the area and Martin was incredibly close to poking the ball past Michael McGovern but failed to get enough power on his attempt.

Ryan Fredericks made his highly anticipated return to the first team five minutes in to the second half after fully recovering from an injury he received in a pre-season match against Brighton in the summer.

The Whites started the second half brightly and Johansen came close to scoring after his free-kick from 20 yards out whistled past the side netting.

Minutes later the home side managed to get their goal. After continuing the press the Norwich back line the Martin managed to get through and got as far as he could with the ball before Johansen smashed it in to the back of the net from only a couple of yards out.

The Whites managed to level things up 25 minutes from time. Fulham found themselves on the attack on the right hand flank. Piazon quickly pushed the ball to the more central Johansen who then played a well-executed through ball to the feet of Martin who slotted home to the adulation of the home support.

The Whites continued to keep pushing and pushing but with just over ten minutes to go Alexander Tettey almost won his side the game when his fierce right-footed shot was superbly parried by Button.

In stoppage time Aluko came close to giving his side the three points when he carefully controlled the ball in the Norwich penalty area but his post just fizzled past the post to the relief of McGovern.

Despite finding themselves behind at half time, the Whites did extremely well in order to get a point, yet they will be wondering how they didn’t manage to leave with all three points.
