At Craven Cottage, on Saturday, Fulham eased to a second consecutive draw under the caretaker managerial acumen of Peter Grant.

It was though, definitely a game of two halves with the Craven Cottage faithful expressing their anger at a dour first half performance form the Cottagers by booing the side off at half-time.

Preston, in that first half, played the more enterprising football and could have scored before Joe Garner put them ahead in the 11th minute before beating Lewis with a classy header.

Fulham, before that 11th minute goal, had survived a chance that saw Lewis push away a shot from Eoin Doyle and in the immediate aftermath of the goal from Garner, the scorer missed a chance to double Preston`s lead when he tried his luck from long range.

The Cottagers only decent chance came from their teenage French striker, Moussa Dembele, when he saw an effort turned over the bar by the Preston keeper.

Thankfully, Fulham played at a better tempo after the break and deservedly drew level with thirteen minutes of normal time left when Ross McCormack curled home a free kick, from twenty yards out, for his 12th goal of the season.

Both sides pushed for a late winner and it was heart-in-mouth time when the ball fell to John Welsh but his effort flew well over the bar.

Two points from the last two games isn`t the best of form and Fulham have now slipped to 13th place in the Championship.
