Championship high-flyers Fulham relinquish a two-goal lead to end with a 2-2 draw against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Championship high-flyers Fulham have relinquished a two-goal lead to let two points slip in a 2-2 draw against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The hosts looked assured of victory thanks to a dominant first-half performance which culminated in goals from Tom Cairney and Lucas Piazon.

However, the Hoops quickly halved the deficit back through Massimo Luongo prior to the break, before Denis Odoi's error on 81 minutes allowed Pawel Wszolek in for the equaliser.

Cairney opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark after a QPR attempted counter broke down.

The 27-year-old surged forward, the opposition defence backing off him, before slotting the ball coolly into the bottom corner from 25 yards.

On 45 minutes, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ryan Sessegnon combined to set up Piazon, who calmly passed the ball into the corner of the net to put the Cottagers two goals up.

QPR would go back into the dressing rooms just one goal down, however, as Luongo volleyed in from Matt Smith's header across goal in first-half injury time.

With just nine minutes left, Odoi tried to control the ball 30 yards from goal but a poor touch saw him dispossessed by Wszolek.

The Polish winger duly charged through on goal and coolly curled the ball into the bottom corner to level the game for QPR and give the visitors a share of the spoils.

FULHAM (4-3-3): Bettinelli; Fredericks, Ream, Odoi, Targett; McDonald, Cairney (Fonte 79'), Johansen; Piazon (Ayite 69'), Mitrovic, Sessegnon (Ojo 79')

QUEENS PARK RANGERS (4-4-2): Smithies; Furlong, Onuoha, Lynch, Bidwell; Manning (Cousins 74'), Luongo, Freeman, Wszolek; Smith (Washington 69'), Eze (Smyth 69')
