Darren Bent hit a last minute equaliser to help new Fulham boss get a much needed point to help fight relegation against Manchester Unted.

Steve Sidwell gave visitors Fulham the lead with right footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner. The goal was assisted by Lewis Holtby.

It looked as if the bottom side could pull off a huge shock until mid way through the second half when a Robin van Persie right footed shot deflected into the bottom left corner and ninty seconds later a Michael Carrick right footed shot from outside the box hit the top left corner to give the home side the lead.

Then as the game entered the 94th minute a Darren Bent header from very close range to the centre of the goal secured a 2-2 draw for Fulham.

The result all but ends any hope of Manchester United gaining a Champions League spot, they trail Liverpool now by nine points.
