It may look like an easier away game on paper, but Fulham haven’t beaten Wigan up there for some years, and they are not pushovers.
Both teams did play positively, and both goalkeepers were kept fairly busy. Dempsey’s converted penalty towards the end of the first half cancelled out an earlier Boyce goal, and so Fulham ended up taking away a point and remaining in 11th place.
The international break may mean that some of the injured players are back in time for the Birmingham and Blackburn games later in the month. Four points out of those would put the Whites in a good position.
