Fulham’s search for a first win of 2016 continued after the Whites were held to a draw by promotion-chasing Derby at the Cottage.

Fulham’s search for a first win of 2016 continued after the Whites were held to a draw by promotion-chasing Derby County at the Cottage, although there were again reasons for optimism for Slaviša Jokanović's men.

Richard Keogh hit the bar for the visitors early on, before Fulham went in front in the 17th minute when Luke Garbutt’s cross was turned into his own goal by Rams debutant Marcus Olsson.

With the Whites heading for the interval in front, Derby were level in the 44th minute. Chris Martin’s cross was met by Craig Bryson who hit a brilliant volley past a helpless Andrew Lonergan.

In an open second half, both teams had chances to win, but Lonergan came to Fulham’s rescue on two occasions in the final 10 minutes with fine saves from Johnny Russell and Cyrus Christie.

Jokanović made three changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Hull City last time out. Fernando Amorebieta, back from his loan spell at Middlesbrough, replaced Tim Ream at centre-back, while Rohan Ince made his debut in place of Scott Parker after sealing his temporary switch from Brighton & Hove Albion. Ross McCormack also returned, taking the place of Alexander Kačaniklić. Derby rang the changes as five fresh faces came into their starting XI, including ex-Whites man Chris Baird.

In windy conditions at the Cottage, Fulham kicked towards the Hammersmith End in the first half. Moussa Dembélé broke from a Derby free-kick and put McCormack through in the second minute but a flag went up for offside. Replays showed the Scot was in fact level. At the other end, Martin dragged a shot well wide from distance.

Garbutt picked up an early booking in the sixth minute for a poor tackle on Russell. The resulting free-kick was taken by Russell and his inswinging delivery saw Keogh beat Lonergan to the ball only to see his header from six yards clip the top of the bar and go behind.

Derby, without a win since their victory over Fulham on Boxing Day, continued to look the brighter side. Baird hit a thunderous volley from distance five yards over in the 10th minute after a cross had only been cleared as far as the Northern Irishman by Dan Burn.

Fulham broke in the 15th minute and McCormack eventually fed Tom Cairney down the right. He moved the ball onto his left foot and delivered a cross to the back post where the waiting Lasse Vigen Christensen saw his close-range header hit the back of Christie and go behind.

The Whites, though, didn’t have to wait long to go in front. Christensen found the overlapping Garbutt and his cross hit Baird and flew towards goal where it bounced in off debutant Olsson from just a few yards out.

The blustery conditions led to the game becoming a bit of a battle in the middle of the park, but a Jamie O’Hara cross looked destined to find the head of Dembélé only for Scott Carson to pluck it out of the air.

Dembélé then fired well wide with an ambitious effort from the byline after the wind had held up a Burn clearance. A ball across the face by Dembélé would have found Christensen. Good defending by Russell at the far stick then prevented Garbutt from getting on the end of a hanging cross by Jazz Richards.

Out of nothing, the Rams drew level a minute before the break. A pass out to the right found Martin on the edge of the box. He hit a cross into the area where the unmarked Bryson was arriving to send a superb volley past Lonergan.

Fulham made a change for the start of the second half as Kačaniklić replaced Ince. The switch saw Cairney move into the middle.

Martin sent a free-kick well wide in the early stages of the second period, before a well-worked Fulham move ended when Kačaniklić’s low shot was easily held by Carson. O’Hara then blazed high and wide from distance as Fulham looked to break, while Andreas Weimann was also off target at the other end with a half-volley from the left-hand edge of the area on the hour mark.

Dembélé should have done better in the 65th minute when he peeled off his marker at the far post but headed an O’Hara corner wide, before Derby made their first change as Baird left the field to warm applause from all four corners of the ground and was replaced by Jacob Butterfield.

A Russell corner created a goalmouth scramble soon after but Fulham eventually cleared their lines after Jeff Hendrick had seen a shot blocked. The Whites broke away a few minutes later but Kačaniklić shot well wide from range.

A low Kačaniklić cross was dangerous in the 72nd minute but a Derby player managed to turn it behind. A Rams break from the corner was ended by good Garbutt tackle and Christensen looked to thread McCormack through but the striker’s first touch was heavy and Carson came out to block.

The Whites made a second change with 15 minutes left as Matt Smith came on for Dembélé. The big frontman immediately caused problems with his aerial prowess, nodding a long ball on for McCormack who saw a shot blocked by Keogh.

O’Hara was booked for a lazy flick at Martin with 10 minutes remaining, before Lonergan kept Fulham level on 84, saving at the feet of Russell after Hendrick’s pass had seen the Derby man scamper beyond Richards.

Fulham’s final substitution saw Christensen make way for Parker in the 85th minute. A lung-busting run by Christie then saw him burst into space, with his dipping shot tipped brilliantly over the bar by Lonergan.

A minute later Parker played a lovely ball to McCormack in space but the striker fired into the side-netting. Kačaniklić then saw a shot deflected into the arms of Carson and Cairney sent a long-range effort a couple of yards wide. Olsson was booked for pulling back Kačaniklić in the build-up. Right at the end, Garbutt did well to deal with a dangerous cross into the box in the final action of the game.
