Derby 2 Fulham 2 - Hanging by a thread
Mixed reports coming through but ultimately it sounds like we really weren't good enough to win. Former Fulham trainee Dean Leacock fired in a 25 yarder than deflected off a Derby knee to give them the lead after 10 minutes. We pulled one back just before the break when Diomansy Kamara headed home a Simon Davies cross. In the second half Leacock was again involved in goal mouth action, but this time it was to deflect a Hammeur Bouazza cross into his own net. We had less than a minute to dream of an away win before conceding a Derby equaliser. Hugely disappointing that we couldn't hold on to that lead and it seems pretty clear that whilst the fat lady hasn't started singing she's certainly clearing her throat. Results elsewhere could have been worse. Brum won to take themselves 6 points clear of us and Sunderland snatched a late winner to move up to the heady heights of 13th. Thankfully Arsenal pulled back from being 2-0 down with only ten men to claim a 3-2 win and keep Bolton in deep trouble. Wigan lost and Reading drew so it's not impossible for us, just very very improbable.
