Fulham were forced to settle for a point at Craven Cottage after twice coming from behind to fight back against Charlton Athletic with a 2-2 draw.

Fulham were forced to settle for a point at Craven Cottage after twice coming from behind to fight back against Charlton Athletic with a 2-2 draw. 

 

Conor Gallagher put the Addicks in the lead in the first-half but Ivan Cavaleiro scored a beauty to make it 1-1 after the break.

 

The visitors got one back two minutes later through Macauley Bonne but Aleksandar Mitrović brought the scores level again with a neat finish in the 63rdminute. 

 

Scott Parker made two changes to the side that demolished Reading on Tuesday night with Steven Sessegnon and Cavaleiro replacing Denis Odoi and Bobby Decordova-Reid. 

 

Charlton arrived at the Cottage without their injured star striker Lyle Taylor but still boasted a strong starting XI with Chelsea loanee Gallagher looking to impose himself. 

 

Joe Bryan picked up the first yellow card of the game in the eighth minute for a late challenge on Jonny Williams in the middle of the park.

 

With 20 minutes gone Marcus Bettinelli made a cool stop from Darren Pratley’s header inside the Fulham box after a curling delivery courtesy of Williams’ free-kick.

 

Mitrović was hauled down by Tom Lockyer in the Charlton box on 23 minutes but referee Keith Stroud waved play on. 

 

On the half-hour mark Gallagher went into the book for an unnecessarily hard challenge on Bryan down Fulham’s left flank. 

 

Four minutes later Bettinelli made an outstanding save to deny Williams after a counter from the visitors, the Welshman fired off a left-footed effort which was parried away.

 

Stefan Johansen delivered a deft chip for Mitrović in the 38thminute but the Serbian couldn’t keep his header down and the ball narrowly sailed over the bar. 

 

It was Gallagher who stole the lead for the visitors after he knocked in a head down by Chris Solly at the back post in the 41stminute. 

 

Fulham made a double change at the break with Harrison Reed and Decordova-Reid coming in for Sessegnon and Harry Arter who took a heavy blow before the half-time whistle. 

 

The home side were looking to impose themselves early in the second-half and Devordova-Reid fired an effort off from distance which was ultimately wide in the 52ndminute. 

 

It was an absolute belter when the equaliser came for Fulham, Decordova-Reid sent Cavaleiro flying around Naby Sarr and he cut in and beat the ‘keeper at his near-post with a powerful effort on 55 minutes. 

 

Sadly the jubilation was short lived when Charlton’s Bonne headed in two minutes later after Fulham failed to effectively clear their box from a corner.

 

The tempo had been taken right up and seconds later Bryan rattled the Charlton crossbar with what looked like a powerful cross. 

 

Things were not slowing down and Mitrović smashed Knockaert’s cut-back against the crossbar in the 62ndminute, Decordova-Reid then hit the rebound against Sarr. 

 

Fulham again fought back and when Tom Cairney saw his header well saved by Dillon Phillips but Mitrović was there to calmly slam in the rebound, a minute after he rattled the bar. 

 

Jonathan Leko replaced Williams after the goal and he tested Bettinelli in the 72ndminute but Fulham’s number one was up to the task and tipped it behind for a corner. 

 

Two minutes later it was Decordova-Reid who was hunting down his first Fulham goal, he got to the front post to connect with Cavaleiro’s cross but Phillips made a good save to deny the header. 

 

The Portuguese winger produced another fine ball in the 77thminute but Mitrović failed to get a good enough connection on the ball to trouble the Charlton goal. 

 

The Serbian striker was booked seconds later for a soft challenge on Charlton’s captain Jason Pearce who was overpowered and bullied by Mitrović all game. 

 

With nine minutes to go it was clear Decordova-Reid was hungry for a goal, he had a neat one-two with Johansen and curled in a decent shot which had to be tipped behind by Phillips. 

 

Parker brought on Josh Onomah with three minutes to go in place of the industrious Johansen, Charlton then swapped Jake Forster-Caskey with Sam Field. 

 

The board went up for seven minutes of added time as Phillips denied Decordova-Reid at the back post for what looked like a certain goal. 

 

With time running out Fulham were camped around the Charlton box but failed to find a third goal before the referee’s whistle was blown for full-time.
