Fulham picked up a first league point of the season at the fifth time of asking after a 1-1 draw at home to Cardiff City.

In a first half which saw Fulham produce their best football of the campaign to date, Tim Hoogland nodded the Whites in front in the 22nd minute.

Ross McCormack then hit the post direct from a corner as Fulham looked for a second goal which their dominant play deserved.

But Cardiff were much better after the restart and Kenwyne Jones fired them level in the 55th minute.

Both sides smelt victory thereafter but both defences held firm as Fulham moved off the foot of the table.

Felix Magath made two changes to the side that defeated Brentford 1-0 in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, with Nikolay Bodurov and Emerson Hyndman returning to the starting XI. Marcus Bettinelli was handed his league debut between the posts after keeping a clean sheet at Griffin Park and Scott Parker was declared fit after rolling his ankle against the Bees. Hoogland again lined up at the base of a midfield diamond.

An early Peter Whittingham set-play was punched well clear by Bettinelli in the young goalkeeper’s first test. At the other end, Parker shot mere inches wide with a 30 yard drive after collecting a quickly-taken McCormack free-kick.

In the seventh minute, Chris David played a sweet reverse ball into the path of McCormack who hit a curling effort that went a couple of yards wide of the far post.

Fulham were enjoying some long periods of possession and a succession of corners saw them go in front in the 22nd minute. McCormack’s delivery was only cleared as far as Parker who played it back to the Scotsman on the left. His cross was met by Hoogland who sent a deft header past David Marshall from six yards for his second goal in Fulham colours.

Fulham almost doubled their lead in cheeky circumstances in the 27th minute when McCormack’s corner hit the near post and Hyndman sent a shot wide of the upright from distance after some good build-up play by Parker and David. The Dutchman was having a fine game and was crudely chopped down by former Fulham man Kagisho Dikgacoi in the 35th minute, with the South African lucky to escape with just a warning. Fabio then hauled down David after being tricked by a combination of step-overs in a first half Fulham absolutely bossed.

Having not tested Bettinelli at all in the opening 45 minutes, Cardiff would surely provide more of a threat in the second half, but it was Fulham who made the early running, with McCormack seeing a shot deflected wide off Matthew Connolly after a determined run.

Parker then forced a good save from Marshall before collecting the rebound and finding Cauley Woodrow. With his back to goal, the forward spun Connolly but blazed his shot high into the Hammersmith End.

Out of nothing, Cardiff drew level in the 55th minute. A long ball forward was nodded back by Jones to Mats Daehli. He took a touch before sliding Jones through with the powerful striker beating the offside trap and slotting through the legs of Bettinelli.

Fulham then made their first change with Woodrow replaced by Adil Chihi for his Whites debut, before Hoogland made a fine challenge to dispossess Daehli as he shaped to shoot.

Cardiff were much improved in the second half and the tiring David made way for Moussa Dembélé in the 74th minute as Fulham went for more options in attack.

Fulham’s final change saw Thomas Eisfeld replace Parker with eight minutes remaining.

Chihi saw a fierce left-footed drive deflected behind in the 85th minute after cutting in from the right, before Bettinelli comfortably collected a Joe Ralls shot from 25 yards.

As four minutes of stoppage time were announced, Hoogland let fly from distance with his effort deflecting off a Cardiff player and dropping just wide of Marshall’s far post. An unmarked Eisfeld then met a Chihi cross but got his header all wrong and saw it fly behind in what was the final chance of the game.
