Half-time: Leeds United 1 Fulham 1

first_imgTom Cairney scored his fourth goal in as many games but Fulham were pegged back before half-time by an outstanding strike from Lewis Cook.Having struck twice in the win over Charlton on Saturday, Cairney produced another fantastic finish – a left-footed volley from the edge of the box – to put Fulham in front at Elland Road after 17 minutes.Slavisa Jokanovic’s side almost scored moments before that when Ross McCormack’s shot was headed on to his own crossbar by Sol Bamba.Aside from a couple of scares, when Bamba scooped over and Tom Adeyemi fired past the angle of post and bar, Fulham looked comfortable for much of the first half.They had further sorties down the left flank through Luke Garbutt, who was twice denied by Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri.But the latter save proved important as the home side immediately levelled, on 38 minutes, as Cook produced a spectacular shot from 30 yards which soared into the corner.Leeds then finished the half the strongest and Fulham keeper Andy Lonergan was twice called into action, blocking Souleymane Doukara’s shot with his legs and claiming Mirco Antenucci’s header.Fulham: Lonergan; Madl, Burn, Amorebieta; Fredericks, Cairney, O’Hara, Baird, Garbutt; Dembele, McCormack.Subs: Lewis, Richards, Stearman, Hyndman, Tunnicliffe, Kacaniklic, Smith.Leeds: Silvestri; Coyle, Bamba, Cooper, Taylor; Adeyemi, Diagouraga; Cook, Mowatt, Doukara; Antenucci.Subs: Peacock-Farrell, Wootton, Berardi, Murphy, Dallas, Botaka, Erwin.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
