Fulham (1) 2-2 (0) Cardiff

Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald preserved Fulham’s unbeaten start to the season with an 86th-minute equaliser on the day Ryan Sessegnon made club history.

Left-back Sessegnon, making his home debut as a substitute late in the first half, needed barely a couple of minutes on the pitch to break the deadlock and become the Whites’ youngest-ever goalscorer.

Cardiff hit back after the break with superb goals from Joe Ralls and Anthony Pikington.

But McDonald produced a cracker of his own in the closing minutes to prevent their first defeat of the season.

That went some way to making up for the disappointment of Tuesday, when Slavisa Jokanovic’s side were denied victory by a late Leeds goal.

Sessegnon made his first senior appearance in that game, as Fulham’s second-youngest debutant behind Matthew Briggs, and the teenager – replacing the injured Floyd Ayite – confirmed his place in the record books when he finished from Sone Aluko’s pass.

Cardiff levelled on the hour mark when Ralls let fly from all of 30 yards and, after Fulham keeper David Button had denied Kadeem Harris, Pilkington conjured up another great goal with a curling effort from 20 yards.

Peter Whittingham struck the bar from a free-kick as the visitors continued to threaten but McDonald snatched a point when he drilled home from just outside the box.
