Second-half substitute Atdhe Nuhiu wheels away to celebrate his injury time equaliser

An injury-time header from substitute Atdhe Nuhiu rescued a point for Sheffield Wednesday against Fulham at Hillsborough

The Kosovan striker nodded in a deflected Kadeem Harris cross in the 93rd minute to earn his side a draw.

Fulham’s Tom Cairney opened the scoring against the run of play in the first half after Keiren Westwood parried a Joe Bryan cross into his path.

Visiting goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli made a string of good saves but Nuhiu found a way past him at the death.

Both sides had early chances in the opening period which saw Steven Fletcher and Alexander Mitrovic both head wide.

Bettinelli was forced into a fine double save after 24 minutes as he kept out both Adam Reach’s header and Fletcher’s follow-up, with the Owls in the ascendency.

But it was Fulham who struck three minutes before half-time, when midfielder Cairney was left with a simple finish after Westwood pushed Bryan’s cross into his path.

The Owls introduced Jacob Murphy on the hour and he almost scored with his first touch, but his back post header drifted wide.

Nuhiu also came off the bench, replacing Fletcher with 13 minutes to go, and had the last word with his equaliser sparking wild celebrations at Hillsborough.
