A late equaliser from Scott Malone saw Fulham rescue a point on Saturday afternoon.

Sheffield Wednesday drew first blood after a great bit of link up play from Barry Bannan and Fernando Forestieri gave the visitors an early lead.

Just as it looked as if though the Whites would be leaving Craven Cottage empty handed Scott Malone buried his shot in to the back of the net to rescue the Whites a point.

Slaviša Jokanović made no changes to the side that beat Brentford 2-0 prior to the international break.

Both teams enjoyed their share of the possession in the opening ten minutes but it was the visitors who were first to break the deadlock when Bannan placed a clever pass to Forestieri who shot first time with his right foot as David Button could only watch the ball go past him via the post.

With just under 20 minutes played Fulham had their best opportunity of the game so far when an unmarked Kevin McDonald powered a header just over the bar from a Stefan Johansen corner.

With just over half an hour gone the Whites were unlucky not to win a penalty after Johansen appeared to be pulled down whilst through on goal but referee for the day Mr Eltringham believed it to be a fair challenge.

Gary Hooper had a golden chance to double the lead shortly after when Kieran Westwood smashed the ball up towards him but Hooper’s shot sailed inches past the post.

Seconds later the visitors pushed again and this time it was Forestieri who was looking to score a brace but Button had it covered.

After the break Fulham almost found themselves with an equaliser when the ball found its way to Sone Aluko who looked to curl it in to the back of the net but Tom Lees managed to get in the way of the shot as it deflected out for a corner.

With just 25 minutes remaining Bannan managed to find the feet of Forestieri with some great link up play but the attacker sliced his effort wide of the post.

Ten minutes later it was Fulham’s turn to attack. Denis Odoi managed to muscle his way in to the box before crossing it in towards Floyd Ayité who struggled to convert his chance. The ball soon found its way to the feet of Tom Cairney but his long range effort was easily saved by Westwood.

In the closing stages of the game the home side pressed and pressed for an equaliser and with five minutes on the clock it was Scott Parker who came closest after he gained possession of the ball in the six-yard box but unfortunately for the home support his effort ended up over the crossbar.

In the dying moments of the game the ball found its way to an unmarked Scott Malone who managed to bury his left footed effort in to the back of the net to the adulation of the home fans.

Fulham weren’t done there though and continued to press offering up a range of chances but were unfortunate to leave with only a point.
