Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Thanks for joining us on the live blog tonight. 

It was gutting for Leeds to concede right at the death, but you can't say Fulham didn't merit an equaliser. They flooded forward relentlessly and though Leeds defended with spirit, there was nothing they could have done to stop Tom Cairney's fierce drive from the edge of the box. 

We'll be back on Saturday 11th March, when Leeds host QPR. 

Until then, enjoy the rest of your week. 

KEMAR ROOFE: Fulham were a good side

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Kemar Roofe
PA

I think we've all come off the pitch frustrated, mainly. We've all worked hard defending, so to come off the pitch at 1-1... The sending off was questionable. 

To be honest, I was more in the middle of the pitch, so I couldn't see their disallowed goal - and obviously we don't have the goalline technology. It's easier to see with the cameras but that's football. 

It was difficult for everybody. It is hard to last 90 minutes, not having had all those games, but you do have to dig in and take the opposition to the trenches. 

They're good and are fighting for the play offs for a reason. They were one of the best teams we've played against. We did our jobs but it was disappointing to not come away with the three points. 

Two points dropped?

Did we drop points tonight? I can't really say we dropped them. It was out of our hands - it was a wonder-strike from the last kick of the game. What is important is that we turn this point into a good one with a win against QPR on Saturday. 

I think Chris Wood is integral to the way we play and the way we set up. You have to manage your players. We didn't have much of the ball tonight but there was a lot of discipline in the football. It was a bit demoralising to lose with the last kick of the game, but it was a good point. 

GARRY MONK: Red card harsh

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

We were probably 20 seconds away from a perfect game plan. From my view, I thought Kalvin Phillips' tackle was a perfectly good tackle - and that decision went against us, but it happens. It was a fantastic result and a fantastic performance. 

I trust all these players and you saw tonight pure passion and desire to follow the game plan - and to do it with quality, as well. It feels a bit deflating but that's football. 

Chris Wood just had a bit of tightness in the calf after the Birmingham game, so rather than risking him - I trust my whole squad - I rested him, and that's what a squad's about. 

I think he'll be alright for QPR but it's my job to manage the group. I was very proud of the players - you can see how much they've given. That's what the fans pay to watch and they're getting it from this team. 

GARRY MONK: It was a good point

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

We came to win and you could see that. We had a game plan and we followed it exceptionally well - and it worked. But that's football. The players are hurting but I thought we were excellent tonight. We followed the plan to a tee. 

It was a worldie finish - and it was going to take something like that to beat us. Right until the very end, we did our work and I thought we played an excellent game. But football can be cruel. 

We had to set up a little bit more counter-attack [minded], nullifying their threats and looking dangerous. They had a lot of the ball but in spaces that weren't really hurting us. It was a fantastic performance against a good team. It was a good point. 

Huddersfield Town v Leeds play off final?

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

If it is, it is. I think the most dangerous thing Town can do is underestimate Leeds - there's more to this Leeds side than they've shown in the games against Huddersfield, and it wouldn't surprise me if they pulled something out the bag that day. 

We're unbeaten and picking up points - and moving away, staying in the play offs. It's about maintaining that, and it will be a good point if Leeds now beat QPR.

How's the table looking?

How did Doukara do?

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I don't think Doukara had as big an impact as Chris Wood usually does in terms of his hold-up play, but there was lots of interchanging between him, Sacko and Roofe to confuse Fulham. But they were relentless and the pressure told. 

Charlie Taylor didn't look like he'd been away and was fantastic in his defending, and how he started play off. He drove through in the final third and has a great left foot - it's just disappointing Leeds couldn't capitalise on it. But Berardi was my Man of the Match. 

Kalvin Phillips - was it a red card?

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I know it was a tenacious challenge. The referee was consistent all night but I think he was a bit harsh then. I think Parker probably made a meal of the challenge but Fulham found spaces all night - and Leeds had to defend so much. They threw bodies on the line to hold onto that lead and let's not forget that Fulham had a goal that was well over the line but disallowed. 

Big moments decided game

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Fulham were such a good side - they had pace, intent and they were so dangerous. Leeds had chances to extend that lead - Pedraza, for instance, was in a great position, but went for power at the near post, rather than going across the keeper. He had his head in his hands afterwards but he had the two best chances of the game. If he'd taken them, it would have been very hard for Fulham to come back. 

Noel's reaction

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I felt tonight, if Leeds had just held onto that 1-0 lead. Leeds were doing well for ten minutes in the first half but then it just became an onslaught. Fulham have an abundance of pace in the wide areas and they caused problems all night. 

But what Leeds did show was a massive work-rate to defend everything out of the game. It does feel like a loss but it was a goal worthy of an equaliser - Cairney had too much time and space to drag it onto his favoured left foot. No keeper would have saved that. 

Couldn't have asked for more

Fulham 1-1 Leeds

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

You have to look at a couple of crucial moments, but I think Fulham would have felt really hard done by if they hadn't got a point. Over the peace, you kind of have to be happy with a point - remember that Fulham did have that goal disallowed.

Rob Green waves to the crowd - he kept Leeds in it for so, so long. Leeds might wonder if they could have done better or closed Fulham down better. I'd have been content - not happy, but content - with two points from this and Birmingham, so I'll take four. 

Five changes, no Wood, no Ayling - and Leeds have absolutely stuck to it to come away with something. We can't ask for too much more.

Stay with us for all the reaction.

BreakingGOAL: FULHAM 1-1 LEEDS - TOM CAIRNEY

Leeds have defended for all they're worth all night - and a stunning strike denies them right at the death. Green has been so solid but he can't reach that one as it flies into the top corner, Tom Cairney hitting it like a dream from the edge of the 18 yard box. The last act of an enthralling game.

Aluko knocks the ball inches wide... 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Green denies Cyriac from point-blank range: Cyriac threw his whole body behind a header he directed low to Green's left. Leeds break through Dallas on the left and plays the ball to Barrow - but Barrow can't get hold of the ball again as he mistimes his run. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Some real sass from Leeds United's Twitter page. Phillips really, really took his time with that walk.

Four added minutes - and Sessegnon's free kick is tipped over by Green for another corner that Leeds clear. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

It's a dangerous position to have a free kick, on the edge of the D the right distance to get it up and over with pace. We've seen Parker get these in before. 

BreakingRED CARD: KALVIN PHILLIPS

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

A one-match ban for Phillips as he picks up a second yellow - and that seems harsh on first sight. It looks like he won the ball on the edge of the area - but it's a Fulham free kick with just a minute to go. Long walk for him after he's had such a sturdy game. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

My heart is in my mouth every time Fulham attack. Fredericks is just creeping forward and stretching the play, and we know how dangerous he can be. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Vieira replaces Roofe - Leeds have had to defend so resolutely here. Dallas finds Barrow on the right wing but he surrenders possession as Fulham break. Aluko runs at Charlie Taylor and reaches the byline, but he can only bat the ball at Rob Green. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Roofe goes to the edge of the penalty area himself - but the rest of the gang are following. Taylor works the way back to Rob Green and Cairney slides the ball out to Sessegnon - but Barrow watches his man before Bartley can clear.

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Parker rolls the ball into the box - but Rob Green meets it. Too much on the kick, though - Button catches with ease. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Poor corner - and a poor header from Charlie Taylor at the other end. Leeds can't afford to be that sloppy at this point. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Barrow was excellent there in how he timed his run - he saw he was offside, halted it and waited for Doukara. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Doukara keeps the ball in play down the left-wing and picks out Barrow on the edge of the box - Leeds corner.

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Kebano's left-footed ball is clipped back in and onrushing Fulham players pack the box - but Charlie Taylor is there first to knock the ball out for a corner. Doukara acts the Chris Wood role - and belts it clear.  

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Strong hands from Green to parry Johansen's powerful free kick away. Sessegnon's square ball into the box is saved by Bartley as Pedraza is hesitant inside the box. He makes way for Stuart Dallas.

What do Fulham need to do? I'd get it out wide, use their pace on the wings. They've had a lot from set pieces and there's movement there.

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Mo Barrow goes into the book for a heavy challenge on Scott Parker halfway into the Leeds half. Fulham free kick.

Noel Whelan

Taylor holds Aluko up before putting the ball out of play. He does well to watch the ball, not the feed - great defending. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Cairney lays off for Cyriac, who toe-pokes the ball into Green's outstretched arms. Wrong decision at the wrong time. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Leeds clear for a Fulham throw and the hosts send the ball into the box - but Leeds stay to fight another day again as it flies out for a goal kick. Leeds have worked hard tonight to retain that 1-0 lead.

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Taylor tracks Aluko and brings the ball away - and the chase is on for the racing Mo Barrow. Ream holds off and pokes the pass away at the eleventh hour. Fulham win a corner - and Cyriac is on in place of Martin.

You were expecting the net to bulge then - such fine margins. Scott Parker on for Kevin McDonald in the midfield, by the way. Surely a second goal would have killed that game then. 

Fulham 0-1 Leeds

Pedraza's looping ball finds Mo Barrow, who smacks the post from close range. Leeds are so close to a second - before Roofe knocks the ball over the bar from his effort.
