Fulham 1-1 Huddersfield Town

Cauley Woodrow
Fulham striker Cauley Woodrow scored his first goal of the season

Fulham striker Cauley Woodrow denied Huddersfield Town their first victory of the season with a 95th-minute equaliser at Craven Cottage.

The hosts almost took a first-half lead but Dan Burn's effort was well cleared off the line by defender Joel Lynch.

The Terriers scored after Nahki Wells linked up with Harry Bunn and Wells tucked the ball past Andy Lonergan.

But Fulham earned a point in added time when Burn flicked on to Woodrow, who calmly volleyed the ball into the net.

Kit Symons's side came close to taking the lead before the break when Burn nodded Jamie O'Hara's corner goalbound, but Lynch scrambled to clear the ball off the line.

Huddersfield keeper Joe Murphy kept the scores level with a terrific save after O'Hara's free-kick teed up the advancing Moussa Dembele for a header.

Huddersfield took the lead against the run of play when Bunn's ball allowed Wells to slide the ball in.

But Fulham claimed a point in dramatic fashion when Burn knocked the ball down to set up Woodrow to volley in.

Fulham Symons post Huddersfield

Fulham manager Kit Symons:

"I understand the frustration from the supporters, they can get restless, but I also know that from hard times you have to show some character to get better.

"The first goal was going to be key, but luckily we got back into it. Hopefully that's the result that will get us going now this season.

"We've lost games this season and should have got more out of them, but we've got to keep going. Our form needs to be a lot better."

Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell:

"I've got to say my players were excellent. Our positivity in the second half got us our just rewards with the goal after a stalemate in the first half.

"Fair play to Kit and his players though, they kept going and even though we made some good blocks and clearances we've conceded an equaliser.

"It really hurts, it feels like a defeat because it would have been the perfect away performance with a clean sheet and three points."
