West Bromwich Albion maintained their unbeaten Championship record as they came from behind to rescue a point with a draw in the sunshine at Fulham.
Both goals owed a good bit to fortune, as Semi Ajayi’s controversial late headed equaliser cancelled out an attempted cross from Anthony Knockaert which deceived Albion keeper Sam Johnstone and dipped in at the far post.
Knockaert’s 49th-minute goal – his second in three home games – looked likely to earn all three points for the hosts at Craven Cottage.
But, from deadline signing Matheus Pereira’s corner, home keeper Marcus Bettinelli was distracted by Albion striker Charlie Austin attempting to lay his hands on him on the line.
The indignant Bettinelli and could only parry the ball tamely, allowing Ajayi to nod in at the far post for his first goal for the club.
