Fulham were forced to settle for a draw as a controversial equaliser earned Millwall a point at the Den.

Fulham were forced to settle for a draw as a controversial equaliser earned Millwall a point at the Den.

The Whites flew out of the blocks and went in front courtesy of the deadly partnership that is Joe Bryan and Aleksandar Mitrović, with the left-back bending in a sumptuous ball for our top scorer to stab home goal number 21 for the season.

The Lions were level five minutes later, but it isn’t a goal the linesman will want to see again. Jon Dadi Bodvarsson was well offside when he converted from close range following a corner, but it was deemed legal by the official on the far side.

The hosts dominated the rest of the first half and should have gone in front from the spot only for Jed Wallace to miss the target from 12 yards.

It was a different story after the break with Scott Parker’s side enjoying all the play, coming closest at the death when substitute Neeskens Kebano headed against the crossbar.

There were two changes to the Fulham side that saw off Blackburn Rovers four days earlier. Parker rested Kevin McDonald and Ivan Cavaleiro, which meant starts for Harry Arter and Aboubakar Kamara.

Not two-and-a-half minutes were on the clock when the Whites went in front. A free-kick was patiently worked until Bryan opted to swing a ball in, superbly picking out Mitrović who had sprung the offside trap to poke in from close range. It was Bryan’s eighth assist of the season, six of which have set up Mitrović goals.

The hosts did not need long to restore parity, but it was a goal riddled with controversy. Bodvarsson was two yards offside when he hooked in at the far post, something every Fulham player was aware of and that replays confirmed, but was not spotted by linesman Daniel Robathan and the goal stood.

That gave Millwall the momentum and they enjoyed the better of the play in the aftermath, winning a penalty in the 22nd minute when Mahlon Romeo drew a foul from Bryan. Wallace, though, smashed his spot-kick over via the crossbar.

It was a mad opening quarter to an encounter that next saw Ryan Woods booked for scything down Mitrović.

A stunning long through pass from Murray Wallace sent his namesake Jed in on goal shortly after the half hour mark, but his touch was poor which allowed Marek Rodák to smother.

Tom Cairney won a free-kick in a good position on the stroke of half-time after some ridiculous skill. Bobby Decordova-Reid smashed the wall with his effort, while Mitrović’s shot on the rebound was saved by Bartosz Bialkowski.

Fulham started on the front foot after the break and Josh Onomah showed pace and determination to get on the end of a long ball forward, but his decision making let him down when he elected to shoot from a difficult angle rather than cut back to Mitrović.

The hour mark saw Cairney cautioned for sliding in on Murray Wallace.

Onomah had taken the game by the scruff of its neck and embarked on a barnstorming 50 yard run, only to drag his shot wide at the end of it.

With 20 to play, Kamara was replaced by Cavaleiro, who had terrorised Millwall at Craven Cottage at the start of the season.

Millwall had barely had a kick second half but they threatened when Tom Bradshaw was sent in with a slide rule pass. Rodák got down well to his angled strike.

Arter was next to be booked for a mistimed challenge on Bodvarsson in the middle of the park. The Whites number 18 was substituted soon after, with Kebano taking his place.

The two substitutes combined to almost snatch a winner in stoppage time when Kebano glanced Cavaleiro’s corner onto the crossbar, but the three points weren’t forthcoming and the opportunity to move into the top-two for the first time this season passed us by.
