An injury-time strike by Cauley Woodrow earned Fulham a point in a 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield Town.

An injury-time strike by Cauley Woodrow earned Fulham a point in a 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield Town.

With just seconds of the game remaining, Dan Burn had ventured forward and it was his knockdown from a long punt forward that fell to substitute Woodrow to fire past Joe Murphy.

It looked like the Whites were heading for defeat after Nahki Wells had put the visitors in front just after the hour mark, racing onto Harry Bunn’s pass and firing past Andrew Lonergan.

But Woodrow snatched a point at the death to ensure the Whites earned a share of the spoils, although Kit Symons’ side are still searching for their first league win of the new season.

Fulham were mainly limited to long-range efforts from Jamie O’Hara in the first half but dominated possession for the majority of the second 45.

Moussa Dembélé saw a close-range header brilliantly saved by Murphy just before Wells’ opener and Tom Cairney saw a late free-kick superbly tipped around the post by the Irishman.

Symons made four changes to the side that lost 2-1 at Hull City in midweek. Two were enforced as Lonergan and Dembélé replaced the injured Marcus Bettinelli and Matt Smith, while Dan Burn came in for Nikolay Bodurov and Alexander Kačaniklić was preferred to Ben Pringle. There was a late amendment to the bench as new signing Tim Ream took the spot of Sakari Mattila who was injured in the warm-up.

Despite the blazing hot conditions, the match started at a frantic pace. Huddersfield had the first effort at goal in the fourth minute when Fulham gave the ball straight to Jacob Butterfield from a free-kick but his audacious attempt from 40 yards sailed well wide.

At the other end, Kačaniklić saw a left-footed effort from just outside the box fly a couple of yards over the bar after the Terriers had only half-cleared a O’Hara corner.

Fulham were then forced into an early change as Shaun Hutchinson was forced off having been clattered by Bunn a few minutes earlier. Bodurov came on in his place.

The much-coveted Butterfield let fly in the 18th minute from 20 yards, with Lonergan pushing his effort away. Jason Davidson got to the rebound and crossed but Fulham - eventually - scrambled the ball clear.

Three minutes later, an O’Hara corner was met by Burn who saw his header hit a Huddersfield player near to the line. On the half-hour mark, a nice passage of play by Fulham eventually ended with O’Hara taking aim from long range, with Murphy palming his effort behind.

Another shot from distance by Butterfield in the 34th minute again saw Lonergan forced into a sprawling save, before Murphy easily held a low drive by O’Hara in front of the Putney End.

Ex-Whites defender Mark Hudson flicked a Davidson corner wide in what proved to be the final action of a fairly tepid opening 45 minutes.

Huddersfield were presented with the best chance of the game four minutes into the second half. Kay Voser’s clearance cannoned off Burn and into the path of Sean Scannell but Lonergan made a brave save at the feet of the midfielder.

Dembélé curled a shot over in the 55th minute after some fine work by Cairney, Lasse Vigen Christensen, Ross McCormack and O’Hara on the edge of the area.

That was the start of a good spell of pressure by Fulham. From McCormack’s whipped-in free-kick on the hour mark, Dembélé rose highest and headed towards goal, with Murphy making a superb reaction stop to keep the Frenchman’s effort out.

So it was against the run of play that the Terriers went in front. Bunn cut infield from the right and slipped in Wells behind the Whites defence with the striker firing past Lonergan and into the far corner.

Lonergan took a whack against a post as he saved a Scannell header from a Bunn cross in the 70th minute but was okay to continue after treatment. Hudson headed the resulting corner from Davidson just over.

Back came Fulham. Joel Lynch made a good block to stop a Cairney goalbound shot soon after, before Kačaniklić was replaced by Woodrow as the Whites went for a three-pronged attack. Hudson went into the book in the 77th minute for scything down McCormack as he wriggled into space. McCormack took the free-kick but Dembélé couldn’t direct his header on target from an acute angle.

Dembélé went closer in the 84th minute, but headed wide from Jazz Richards’ cross from the right. Bunn then jinked past Richards at the other end, but his low shot was turned behind by Lonergan at his near post.

With four minutes of injury time announced, Cairney saw his curling free-kick tipped around the post by Murphy. It looked like that would be that, but Woodrow had the final say.
