Fulham (0) 2-2 (2) Norwich


Fulham striker Chris Martin scored once and assisted another to cap yet another Fulham comeback as the Whites drew 2-2 with Norwich.

Whites left back Scott Malone, signed from Cardiff in the summer, conceded two penalties in the first half as Slavisa Jokanovic’s men were undone by the league leaders.

Graham Dorrans converted both his spot-kicks, before Stefan Johansen and Chris Martin scored after the interval to haul the hosts level.

The result left the Whites with a point but continued their winless home run since the opening day victory against Newcastle.

Sone Aluko forced Michael McGovern into a fine early save as the Whites started to apply some pressure of their own.

But Alex Neill’s Canaries took the lead after 16 minutes though after a clumsy foul from Malone - who scored one goal and set up two at Barnsley - took Josh Murphy down.

Former West Brom man Dorrans converted with a simple side-foot down the middle, with David Button diving to his right.

Nigeria international Aluko caused the Canaries trouble minutes later when he accelerated into the box, but his cut back was hoisted away before Lucas Piazon could pounce.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s men should really have found themselves level on 38 minutes though, when a whipped corner from Aluko ricocheted in the six yard box but no one could tap the ball home.

But the Whites were made to pay when Malone was penalised for bringing down experienced Championship striker Cameron Jerome in the box, and Dorrans once again slotted home from 12 yards.

Johansen nearly pulled one back for Fulham after 53 minutes when his 25-yard free kick viciously dipped, but fell the wrong side of the crossbar.

But Martin - who scored his first Whites goal on the weekend - forced one back when his shot on the edge of the box made its way through a wall of bodies, deflecting off Johansen, and found the bottom corner.

Martin then levelled on 66 minutes when he was played in on goal and took his time before coolly picking his spot beyond World Cup star Michael McGovern.

But Alex Tettey nearly set the visitors back in front on 77 minutes when his fierce strike from 25 yards had to be parried away smartly by David Button.

Martin might have won it for Fulham late on, but his effort was blocked before the visitors had an appeal for a third penalty waved away in injury time.
