Fulham (1) 2-2 (2) Blackpool


Fulham fought back from two goals down to rescue a point against 10-man Blackpool.

Goals from Ishmael Miller and Jacob Murphy gave the basement boys a deserved lead, only for Scott Parker and Bryan Ruiz, who scored straight from a corner, to earn the Cottagers a point after Tony McMahon's straight red card.

Former Manchester City frontman Miller put the struggling Seasiders ahead inside 90 seconds when he chested down Donervon Daniels' long ball forward before firing past Marcus Bettinelli.

Miller turned provider for debutant Murphy, who signed on loan from Norwich City, to double Blackpool's lead on 26 minutes.

However, the visitors were reduced to 10 men just before the break when skipper McMahon was sent-off for kicking out at Hugo Rodallega.

Fulham took advantage in stoppage-time as Parker exchanged passes with Rodallega to squeeze the ball past Joe Lewis at his near post.

Kit Symons' side piled on the pressure after the break and Lewis had to be at his best to keep out Elsad Zverotic's blockbuster.

The Blackpool keeper then denied George Williams and Nikolay Bodurov as Blackpool defended for their lives.

However, Ruiz spoiled Lee Clark's Craven Cottage return when his corner caught out Lewis and nestled into the net.

The Costa Rican World Cup star almost snatched victory late on, but Lewis made amends for his error as honours ended even.
