Fulham earned a creditable 1-1 draw at the Amex as they came from behind against Brighton.

Evan Ferguson's passed finish gave the hosts a lead they deserved midway through the first half, and Fulham barely saw the ball in the first 45 minutes.

But Joao Palhinha smashed in a leveller for Fulham, who stay 14th in the table after picking up a point on the south coast.

Dom Smith was on hand to rate the Fulham performances from the Amex…

Bernd Leno 7

Saved expertly from Carlos Baleba's long shot, and also denied Simon Adingra with his feet as the Ivorian closed in.

Timothy Castagne 6

Torn to shreds down the win by Kaoru Mitoma in one jinking run from the Japanese. Otherwise assured.

Calvin Bassey 7

Made one impressing marauding overlapping run with the ball and finally a Premier League start — his third — went well for him.

Tim Ream 6

Gave away one silly just outside the area when Pascal Gross span him, but otherwise tidy.

Antonee Robinson 4

Some misplaced passes in the first half left his manager shouting at the turf, and he was caught on his heels a few times too. Booked. Somewhat redeemed himself with a late goal-saving block.

Harrison Reed 6

His bouncing header from a corner had Jason Steele scrambling. Put himself about.

Joao Palhinha 8

Flew into every tackle like it was his last and unleashed a second-half pile-driver to earn Fulham a point.

Alex Iwobi 7

After he settled into game, was able to keep Fulham in possession with close control and technical ability.

Bobby De Cordova-Reid 6

Hooked a glorious volleyed chance over the bar when he should have controlled before firing on goal.

Willian 7

Never stopped running, and even helped out with some defensive work.

Raul Jimenez 5

Just doesn't look the same player since before his head injury. Worse at holding up the ball than usual, and still yet to score for Fulham, and hasn't scored a Premier League goal in 32 games.


Andreas Pereira (Reed, 58') 6

Dropped due to poor form but played better here.

Rodrigo Muniz (Jimenez, 58') 6

Nearly scored an incredible backheel flick.

Harry Wilson (De Cordova-Reid, 58') 7

Assisted Fulham's only goal.

Tom Cairney (Willian, 86') N/A

Sasa Lukic (Iwobi, 90+2') N/A

Not used: Rodak, Ballo-Toure, Tanton, De Fougerolles
