Fulham came from behind to claim a point at Derby County’s Pride Park on Friday night.

Fulham came from behind to claim a point at Derby County’s Pride Park on Friday night.

A win would have pulled us level with Leeds United, but a draw is nothing to be sniffed at away to a side with the best home record in the division.

We also relied heavily on a Marek Rodák masterclass throughout the encounter, with the goalkeeper beaten only by Wayne Rooney’s penalty.

Aleksandar Mitrović grabbed our equaliser, showing his predatory instincts with a smart volley from Aboubakar Kamara’s cross.

Following the frustrations of Barnsley six days earlier, Scott Parker made sweeping changes to his side, with Denis Odoi, Stefan Johansen, Harry Arter and Bobby Decordova-Reid all brought in.

A Tom Lawrence effort that ended up in the car park aside, there was no goalmouth action in the opening 10 minutes, but the Welshman then had two decent openings. First his deflected shot whistled a couple of yards wide, before his poked effort from a dangerous Rooney delivery was saved by Rodák.

The Fulham goalkeeper was called into action again midway through the half when Matt Clarke brought down Rooney’s free-kick and pushed his shot across goal. It was heading in but for the fantastic reflexes of Rodák who got down rapidly to palm it away.

Our first sniff wasn’t far away, but Mitrović’s header from a clipped Decordova-Reid cross was straight at home stopper Ben Hamer.

Rodák again demonstrated that his Barnsley showing was a one-off when he made a sprawling stop to divert Lawrence’s low bouncing strike around the post, before punching away an ambitious but wicked attempt from Rooney, who went for goal from a corner.

Fulham looked to start the second half brightly and Johansen chanced his arm from long range inside three minutes, but it was a simple stop for Hamer.

But it was Derby who were given the best chance of the game when Martyn Waghorn flicked the ball into Tim Ream’s arm, resulting in the referee awarding a penalty. Rooney stepped up and calmly dinked the ball straight down the middle.

Decordova-Reid won a free-kick 20 yards out soon after, but Mitrović’s delivery lacked the power to truly trouble Hamer.

A wonderful Cairney pass then sent Joe Bryan into space down the left, but his inviting cross could not be diverted by Mitrović, who was perhaps thrown by the presence of Hamer’s star-jump in his periphery.

Arter was carded for a late challenge on Rooney, and Parker then switched things up by replacing Johansen and Anthony Knockaert with Ivan Cavaleiro and Kamara.

It proved to be an inspired decision, as both players were involved in the equaliser. Cavaleiro’s positive run and shot ended up ricocheting to Kamara who delivered a first time cross to Mitrović, and the big man sent a clever volley curling inside the near post.

Our final change saw Kevin McDonald come on for Arter, and he too got himself quickly into the thick of things, sending Kamara galloping forwards with a fine pass. He couldn’t get a shot away but Cavaleiro could, hitting it sweetly but just missing the target.

At the other end, Odoi made a crucial block to turn Rooney’s volley over the crossbar before Rodák made another super save to repel Max Bird’s travelling strike.

The Slovak excelled himself further in the 89th minute, somehow clawing the ball from off the goalline after it looked as though Curtis Davies had turned it home.

Both sides went for it in stoppage time, including another Rooney shot from a corner that Rodák was again equal to, but no winner was forthcoming as the points were shared.
