Two of the former Premier League teams plying their trades in the Championship, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion, faced each other in match week seventh. Fulham had had an average start in their first full season with manager Scott Parker, with ten points picked up from the first six matches. The overhaul summer has brought them some decent additions and their fans expected them to pick up their form when they welcomed West Brom.

For Slaven Bilić’s side, they were the only unbeaten side after Swansea and Charlton lost their ties just a few moments earlier. But their record of three draws had raised some questions among the fanbase about their consistency in those matches. And they have continued that streak by adding to their tally of draws and unbeaten matches with a late salvage goal from centre-back Semi Ajayi.
