Craven Cottage

As they drew 2-2 at a pulsating Sky Bet Championship encounter at Craven Cottage with Charlton fulham came from behind.
Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher (41) scored his fourth goal of the season to put the Addicks ahead, until Ivan Cavaleiro (55) restored parity after a rampaging run and wonderful strike for Fulham 10 minutes after the restart.
A header from Macauley Bonne (57) put the people back in front inside 120 seconds, however Aleksandar Mitrovic (63) smashed the ball into the roof of the net from close range to set up a grandstand finish from the London derby.
The hosts search for a winner intensified through nine minutes of second-half stoppage-time along with an heroic late stop by Charltonkeeper Dillon Phillips averted Bobby Decordova-Reid side-footing home a spectacular winner.
Charlton appeared a surprise from the opening markets with a competitive pressing approach grabbing the Whites off-guard along with also the energetic Jonny Williams revealing a few for Harry Arter.
The hosts did finally settle a beginning but struggled to make openings and were denied a penalty when Mitrovic grappled with Tom Lockyer within the 18 yard box, following.
A cross from Jake Forster-Caskey was led into the path of Gallagher from Chris Solly, and he struck a tidy fourth target as a summer season from Stamford Bridge to place Charlton in front.
Scott Parker switched in the rest to a three, and his tinkering evidently had a favorable effect because a magic equaliser struck after exchanging passes with Decordova-Reid rushing from halfway and dispatching a sublime strike.
Since Fulhams desire to place the game to bed – and go back to the summit for a result – grew, they hit on the bar through Joe Bryan and Mitrovic, but between those two efforts, Bonnes towering header delivered the away fans at the Putney End into raptures.
They did get back on level terms when absolute brute force viewed Mitrovic rob the chunk from Sollys feet and smash into the roof of the internet, but the Addicks remained resolute and needed Phillips to thank overdue on for his glorious timely rescue to refuse Decordova-Reid.
The second break of the season means there are no Sky Bet Championship games next week back in action. Both sides will kick-off in 3pm Fulham travel to the bet365 Stadium to face Stoke, together with Charlton hosting Derby at The Valley.
