Fulham extended their unbeaten run, in the Championship, to a club record sixteen games.

However, their chances of achieving an automatic promotion place were dealt a blow when Queens Park Rangers came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2.

In almost arctic conditions with snow blowing across the ground, Fulham got off to an ideal start opening the scoring in the thirty-second minute when Tom Cairney was on hand to drill the ball home.

The lead was doubled in the forty-fifth minute when Lucas Piazon scored and it looked as if the Cottagers were heading for a comfortable win.

However, a free-kick deep into stoppage time in the first-half saw Fulham hold a high defensive line and when the ball was clipped in Luongo was on hand to acrobatically steer the ball home.

The goal stunned Fulham and Queens Park Rangers, boosted by their away win at Aston Villa in midweek, were the better team in the second half.

Only a series of saves by Marcus Bettinelli kept Fulham ahead but it was to be a mistake from the usually reliable Denis Odoi that was to see Queens Park Rangers equalise.

Odoi dallied in possession of the ball, mis-controlled it and could only watch on in anguish as Wszolek raced away to beat Bettinelli with a neat finish.

Both sides pushed for a late winner but it wasn`t to be and the final minutes got a little feisty with Mitrovic and Lynch clashing after the latter had fouled the Serbian.
