Fulham waste chance to enter top six in Championship with Blackburn draw

Lucas Joao celebrates after scoring his dramatic, late equaliser.

Lucas Joao struck deep into stoppage time to secure a 2-2 draw for Blackburn Rovers at playoff chasing Fulham.

Joao's finish extended Blackburn's unbeaten run under new manager Tony Mowbray to six games and moved the club out of the bottom three in the Championship.

Craig Conway cancelled out Sone Aluko's 45th-minute opener when he converted from the penalty spot in the 76th minute, Tomas Kalas bringing down Marvin Emnes.

But Fulham still looked on course to claim the victory that would move them above Sheffield Wednesday and into the top six when substitute Gohi Cyriac scored his first goal for the club five minutes from time, connecting with Ruan Fredericks' cross.

Blackburn deserved a share of the spoils, though, and got their reward when Joao -- on loan at Rovers from Wednesday -- dramatically turned home Derrick Williams' cross four minutes into added time to pull the visitors out of the relegation zone by a point.

Wolverhampton Wanderers scored two late goals to beat Brentford 2-1 and clinch a potentially crucial three points in their fight against relegation.

Matt Doherty and Helder Costa were the heroes for the visitors, who got their reward for a spirited and energetic display against the in-form Bees.

Maxime Colin broke the deadlock for the hosts in the 31st minute with a sizzling 25-yard strike that arrowed into the bottom corner. But Brentford were ultimately made to pay for a lacklustre display against a Wolves side who were quicker to every loose ball.

Doherty gave Paul Lambert's side hope in the 86th minute when he was in the right place at the far post to steer substitute Ben Marshall's right wing cross into the empty net. And they took all three points with a minute of normal time remaining when Nico Yennaris' half clearance dropped for Costa to volley into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

The win pulls Wolves four points clear of the drop zone.
