Bolton Wanderers 1 Fulham 1

Bolton Wanderers 1 Fulham 1

The honours were shared at the Macron Stadium in this Championship clash.

The point sees Fulham remain in the play-off positions, fifth in the table.

However, with Bolton lurking near the relegation places, some might see the draw as two points lost at a crucial stage of the season.

Fulham entered this fixture on the back of five consecutive wins and got off to the perfect start.

With just four minutes having been played, Matt Targett, on loan from Southampton, headed the Cottagers in front.

The lead should have been doubled when Rui Fonte was put through one-on-one with the Bolton keeper, Ben Alnwick, unfortunately, the striker fluffed his lines and the chance was gone.

Jokanovic introduced Aboubakar Kamara after the break and the striker also had a great chance to double the lead but somehow failed to turn the ball in from five-yards out when a cross from Stefan Johansen came his way.

After leading for almost an hour and looking likely to take the three points, there was a rude awakening for the Cottagers when, in the sixty-first minute Bolton equalised.

The goal came from their substitute Adam Le Fondre who volleyed the ball past Marcus Bettinelli for his first goal in twenty-one matches.

With the game all-square, both sides had chances to steal a victory, Sammy Ameobi was almost Bolton`s hero but when he found the net his goal was ruled out for a foul on Bettinelli and, for Fulham, Johansen hit the post very late on.

Next up for Fulham, is a home fixture against a play-off rival, Aston Villa.
