Fulham came away from Elland Road with a point after a tough battle with Leeds United under lights on Tuesday night.

Fulham came away from Elland Road with a point after a tough battle with Leeds United under lights on Tuesday night.

Ibrahima Cisse had the best chance of the game when his first-half effort ricocheted off the right-hand post.

Chris Wood had a goal ruled offside and Kalvin Phillips and Stuart Dallas both had chances which fell just wide of the post for Leeds.

Fulham Head Coach Slaviša Jokanović made four changes to the starting XI that faced Reading on Saturday with Denis Odoi, Cisse, Lucas Piazon and Aboubakar Kamara coming in for Tomas Kalas, Oliver Norwood, Neeskens Kebano and Floyd Ayité.

Leeds made three changes to their team that drew 0-0 with Preston North End at the weekend as Conor Shaughnessy, Vernun Anita and Samuel Saiz replaced Liam Cooper, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Kemar Roofe. 

Tim Ream was down for some time with just three minutes on the clock after a coming together with Leeds striker Wood, the American received some treatment to his face and returned to the field of play.

Fulham threatened first in the 11th minute after Sone Aluko dribbled into the box and the ball fell to Piazon who laid it off for Stefan Johansen, his shot from the edge of the box went just wide of the right-hand post.

Fulham attacked again two minutes later when Ryan Fredericks broke free down the right, his cross eventually found Kamara whose powerful effort deflected off a Leeds defender, just evading the goal and going out for a corner.

Fulham continued to push on in search of a goal and Cisse hit the post in the 18th minute after he shot from the edge of the box, central to the goal, but Leeds cleared the danger.

Leeds first threat came in the 23rd minute after Saiz found some space down the left, he crossed the ball looking for Wood but Ream got in front of the big striker to clear the ball.

On the half-hour mark Leeds should’ve taken the lead when Wood was one-on-one with David Button after a quick counter attack from the home side, but Fulham’s goalkeeper stood firm and palmed his shot away.

Piazon was carried off after 34 minutes following a nasty clash with Shaughnessy, amid boos from the home crowd, Kebano came on to replace the Brazilian.

Leeds did find the back of the net before the half came to a close when Saiz looped a ball over the Fulham defence and Wood brought it down and put it away only to realise the offside flag had been raised, much to the relief of the travelling away support.

The home team had one more chance in added time of the first-half when a Saiz free-kick found Shaughnessy at the back-post but the defender couldn’t get a shot away and Odoi cleaned up for Fulham.

Early on in the second-half Ryan Sessegnon was booked for a very soft coming together with Ezgjan Alioski which left the Leeds man rolling on the floor and referee Darren Bond handing the Fulham left-back a yellow card.

On the hour-mark Hernandez swung in a lofty-free kick which was headed clear by Odoi but it was met by Leeds captain Luke Ayling however his volley failed to trouble Button.

Roofe replaced Alioski in the 64th minute of the game for Leeds who were looking to give Wood some more support.

Phillips was the next man in the referee’s book after he pulled down Stefan Johansen who was on the break.

In the 75th minute Aluko delivered a dangerous low ball which found Johansen in the box, his shot was blocked and Leeds broke but Saiz shanked his effort wide at the other end of the pitch.

Before the goal-kick could be taken Norwood came on in place of the industrious Kamara.

Johansen repaid captain Aluko three minutes later after a delicious through ball which cut Leeds open, the Nigerian was one-on-one with Felix Wiedwald but the German did well to deflect his effort.

Dallas then replaced Saiz and in the 83rd minute and shortly after Anita was booked for a late challenge on Aluko as he was bursting free on a counter attack.

With four minutes to go Kebano was bursting through the Leeds defence before Shaughnessy brought him down, it appeared to go out for a corner but Leeds took the goal-kick quickly, and the hosts broke and delivered a dangerous ball which was cleared by Fredericks, it fell for Phillips and his shot went inches wide of the far post.

In the 89th minute Dallas broke free from Sessegnon down the left and his low cross missed everyone and slowly rolled past the right-hand post after taking a nick off a Fulham defender.

In added time and with the last real chance of the game, Cisse fed Kebano who turned away from Shaughnessy on the edge of the box but his shot was dipping and fell just over the bar.
