At Craven Cottage, Fulham conceded a late equaliser, thereby continuing a run where they have yet to register a home win in the Championship this season.

The equaliser Cardiff City scored, also ensured the Welsh side remained unbeaten this season but also saw them drop their first points of the season.

The draw also saw the record extended whereby the Cardiff City manager, Neil Warnock, has never won at Craven Cottage.

In summing up the game, it often looked as if Fulham would swamp Cardiff with the Cottagers enjoying longs spells of possession, but unable to breach a resilient and solid looking Cardiff defence.

But, for all their possession, Fulham had to be aware of the counter-attacking threat Cardiff possessed. One such counter-attack produced the first chance of the game but Junior Hiolett blazed his effort over the bar.

For Fulham, Ryan Sessegnon had two efforts in as many minutes that flashed past the post. Other chances created saw Yohan Mollo, making his Fulham debut, drift a free-kick just wide. Neil Etheridge, in the Cardiff goal, made two good saves to keep the game at 0-0, the first from Floyd Ayite and the second from Stefan Johansen, early in the second half.

Fulham were dominant in the second half but some poor finishing saw the score-line remain at 0-0. The Craven Cottage thought Ayite has broken the deadlock but his shot crashed against the post.

With fifteen minutes to though, Fulham got the breakthrough they deserved when Ryan Sessegnon drove the ball through a crowd of players to find the net. Unfortunately, Fulham couldn`t hang on to the lead and with just eight minutes left Cardiff levelled when Danny Ward met a good cross from Liam Feeney to head home.
