Charlton (0) 2-2 (1) Fulham


Fulham suffered late heartbreak at the Valley as Charlton Athletic struck at the death to grab as a share of the spoils in today's London derby.

Ryan Tunnicliffe and Ross McCormack put the Whites firmly in the driving seat and on course for a hard-fought three points.

But the Addicks produced a late onslaught as Johnnie Jackson headed home to give them hope and Jordan Cousins drew them level deep into stoppage time.

Fulham manager Kit Symons made two changes from the side that were mauled by Wolves in midweek as Jazz Richards and Lasse Vigen Christensen came into the starting XI.

On-loan Everton striker Conor McAleny wasted an early chance for Charlton in a quiet first quarter of the London derby as he blasted wide of the target.

But Fulham made the breakthrough shortly after the half-hour mark when Tunnicliffe made the most of an error from Addicks keeper Nick Poper to put the visitors ahead.

The Cottagers seemed to be enjoying themselves in the autumn sunshine and had plenty of chances to double their lead before McCormack eventually gave them some breathing space.

Scorer of the first, Tunnicliffe, was the architect of the second as he picked out the Scotsman with a good ball and the striker did the rest with a fine left-footed finish into the bottom corner.

A bullet header from Jackson, his first touch of the ball having only come on as a substitute moments earlier, halved the deficit.

But it looked as though the Cottagers would hold on for victory until Cousins powered home a header with seconds remaining to deny Fulham.
