Dan Burn's dramatic late header clinched a share of the points as Fulham fought back three times in a thriller at Rotherham.

Dan Burn’s dramatic late header clinched a share of the points as Fulham fought back three times to draw a thrilling encounter with Rotherham.

Although the Millers controlled the first half, the Whites clearly felt aggrieved to go behind when Paul Taylor’s shot beat Marcus Bettinelli after a touch from Alex Revell.

Bettinelli and his defenders appealed for offside, to no avail, but Fulham provided the ideal response five minutes later when George Williams was tripped inside the area and Ross McCormack stroked in the penalty.

The pace of the match picked up after half-time, with Jonson Clarke-Harris putting Rotherham back in front with an acrobatic volley on 53 minutes.

Once again, the Whites replied instantly. This time it was within three minutes, as Cauley Woodrow angled in a perfect left-footed strike from the corner of the area.

After an absorbing last twenty minutes, the match tipped in the home side’s favour, when Ben Pringle fired through a sea of bodies after 87 minutes to make it 3-2.

But Burn made sure he had the final word. The stand-in Captain leapt highest to head McCormack’s corner into the roof of the Millers net to score a third equaliser.

There was early danger as McCormack’s free-kick was flicked goalwards by Woodrow but the ball dropped comfortably for Adam Collin. Opposite number Marcus Bettinelli also got his hands on the ball early with a couple of commanding takes from crosses but it was Collin who was at full stretch first.

Thomas Eisfeld found Elsad Zverotić on the overlap and the Rotherham keeper had to adjust quickly to stop the Montenegrin’s cross dropping in the far corner on 10 minutes.

The Whites’ youthful midfield were struggling to gain a foothold as the hosts controlled the first twenty minutes of play, but Fulham’s backline were standing firm.

The first real shooting opportunity opened up for Taylor on 28 minutes, cutting in from the left, and his strike flicked off the body of Revell to beat an unsighted Bettinelli.

Despite the protests, the goal was given, but Fulham were soon celebrating. One of the Whites' livelier players in the first half, George Williams, tricked his way into the area and drew a trip from Lee Frecklington, giving McCormack a chance from the spot.

The Scotsman sent Collin the wrong way with a right-footed penalty to restore parity on 33 minutes, but Rotherham were putting the Whites back under pressure before the interval.

Revell lashed over on the turn from inside the penalty area and Bettinelli got two solid hands to parry away Frecklington’s header from Pringle’s inviting cross.

However, a rejuvenated Fulham took to the pitch after the break, with Lasse Vigen Christensen, Konstantinos Stafylidis and Woodrow all working Collin from around the edge of the area.

The Whites were soon ruing those missed chances, when Clarke-Harris adjusted his body in mid-air to volley in Pringle’s 55th minute cross from the left.

But once again, Fulham hit straight back and, this time, in spectacular fashion. Woodrow collected Christensen’s pass on the corner of the area, and curled in a fantastic left-footed strike in-off the angle of post and crossbar on 58 minutes.

A frantic period of play followed, with Clarke-Harris prodding just wide from another dangerous Pringle cross, Kari Arnason heading narrowly over and Taylor curling a free-kick inches off target.

Moussa Dembélé was thrown into the fray in place of Eisfeld on 64 minutes, before another chance opened up for the hosts. Arnason headed over again from a good position.

Woodrow had Collin scrambling across goal to claim his improvised effort from Zverotić’s delivery and he clearly had a taste for another goal, hammering over from 30 yards.

Scott Parker was introduced into Fulham’s midfield, for Hyndman, on 73 minutes, and Bettinelli had to be alert to palm Taylor’s 25-yard free-kick over shortly afterwards.

It was end-to-end in the closing stages, with substitute Matt Derbyshire missing an absolute sitter from six yards, Bettinelli breathing a sigh of relief after the Millers striker headed wide.

Moments later, on 82 minutes, a sweeping Whites move found its way to Williams, who rifled a shot into the side-netting. The Fulham faithful though it was in, but it was the wrong side of the post.

Matt Smith was introduced for Woodrow on 82 minutes with the game in the balance, but the game seemingly tipped the wrong way when Pringle slammed in an 87th minute shot which, despite two deflections, the Whites could not keep out.

But Fulham heads never dropped and, as Symons encouraged his players to throw themselves forward, McCormack’s last minute corner found Burn, who headed the ball down and it bounced up into the roof of the net as the travelling Whites fans went wild.

Both teams had opportunities to snatch a fourth goal before the whistle blew, but the points were shared in a captivating match at New York Stadium.
