Referee:

Cardiff responded to the defeat against Wolves last weekend by grabbing a point at Fulham on Saturday.

The struggling former Premier League side, who came down with us last season, looked for a large period as if they would break their winless streak against us but a second half goals earned us a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage.

Just minutes into the game Scott Parker threatened but his 20 yard effort went just over with Ross McCormack curling wide not too long as we struggled to get into the game.

Tim Hoogland, who was impressive for Fulham, headed Fulham into the lead that they deserved as he got onto the end of a cross from McCormack after Parker played him in on the wing.

The post saved us, and denied Fulham, shortly after when McCormack's corner went direct onto the woodwork and Emerson Hyndman headed wide with Fulham well on top. David Marshall saved from Parker and Cauley Woodrow put over as Fulham's missed chances added up.

Missed chances from Fulham costs them in the end.

Mats Daelhi's cross to Kenwyne Jones saw him score his fourth goal of the season, he managed just one for us last season. Given the chance Jones calmly slotted home to equalise shortly after the break.

As expected this equaliser caused problems to Fulham with the fans becoming edgy and Fulham clearly rattled but clear cut chances for either didn't really come with McCormack claiming a penalty for a tug on him by Morrison, which wasn't given.

Hoogland's deflected late effort had Marshall scrambling but he did enough to keep his effort out as we claimed a point, which we probably wouldn't have got last season so this points to some improvement.
