Fulham face a tough replay in the FA Cup third round after Danny Murphy´s 74th minute equaliser saw them avoid joining the giant-killing casualties in their 2-2 draw against Bristol Rovers.

New boss Roy Hodgson saw his team fall behind to the League One side when Danny Coles´ third-minute effort was deflected in, and although David Healy equalised before half-time, Rovers were in front again when defender Craig Hinton headed home.

Murphy saved Fulham with a superb strike from 25 yards which brave Rovers keeper Steve Phillips touched but could not stop, but it was still a marvellous day out for 7,000 travelling Pirates fans who packed one end of the ground, almost outnumbering the home support.
