Middlesbrough old boy Mark Schwarzer kept his former club at bay in a goalless draw as Boro's survival hopes were dealt a serious blow by Fulham.

The Australian clawed away Tuncay Sanli's 47th-minute header to deny Boro a victory they desperately needed.

Gareth Southgate's men enjoyed the better of the game, but Andrew Johnson was denied by a post before the break and Clint Dempsey and Bobby Zamora both went close at the end.
