  1. Honours even at Craven Cottage then - and that was just about a fair result. Fulham were the better side in the first half and deservedly led, but Southampton were stronger in the second period and were worthy of their equaliser. Thanks for following the game with us this afternoon.

  2. Full-time: Fulham 1 Southampton 1

  3. 90+5

    ...and Hangeland sends a header inches wide. Huge sigh of relief for Southampton.

  4. 90+5

    Fulham win a free-kick from a dangerous position on the left flank...

  5. 90+4

    Southampton send on Guly do Prado in place of Ramirez.

  6. 90+3

    Neither team are able to keep the ball here and so the play is tuck in midfield.

  7. 90+1

    Great chance for Fulham! The ball is only half cleared to Sidwell on the edge of the box, and the midfielder sends a first-time piledriver of a couple of centimetres wide.

  8. 90

    Frantic finale at Craven Cottage as both teams go in desperate search of a winner.

  9. 88

    Wonderful strike from Ramirez! But the Uruguayan's 20-yard left-foot rasper is saved by Schwarzer, who gets two hands to it but only palms the ball up into the air and has to grab it before it falls behind the goal-line.

  10. 87

    Great chance for Fulham as Riether drives a low cross across goal, but neither Ruiz nor Berbatov can get a foot to it. Close call.

  11. 85

    Senderos was booked for dissent in the aftermath of the penalty decision.

  12. 85

    Schwarzer gets a hand to Lambert's penalty but it was too powerful and all the Australian could do was divert it into the roof of the net. That's a deserved equaliser for the visitors.

  13. 85

    Goal! Fulham 1 Southampton 1 (Rickie Lambert pen)

  14. 83

    Penalty to Southampton for a handball by Chris Baird.

  15. 79

    Change for Southampton as Jay Rodriguez replaces Steven Davis.

  16. 79

    Change for Fulham as Giorgos Karagounis replaces Hugo Rodallega.

  17. 78

    Fantastic chance for Southampton as Shaw sweeps in a cross from the left byline that Jose Fonte flicks on to Lambert, but his unchallenged volley flies just over the bar.

  18. 77

    John Arne Riise picks up a yellow card for repeated fouling.

  19. 76

    Southampton have lost a lot of their momentum now, although they have just made their way into the Fulham box and forced Schwarzer to make a brave catch from a Lambert cross that leaves him winded.

  20. 73

    Chance for Fulham as they force a corner on the right and after it was only half cleared, Chris Baird drove a low cross towards Berbatov at the near post, but Kelvin Davis got down well to claim the ball and alleviate the danger.
