Fulham draws 1-1 with Birmingham in Premier League

Clint Dempsey secured a point for Fulham on Saturday, scoring a

second-half equalizer for a 1-1 draw against Birmingham.

Dempsey headed home in the 53rd minute after Aaron Hughes had

knocked the ball into his path at the far post.

Birmingham had taken the lead through Sebastian Larsson in the

19th minute but left Craven Cottage still looking for its first

away win of the season. The visitors came close to a winner in the

74th, when Roger Johnson hit the crossbar with a header.

Fulham substitute Eddie Johnson then missed a good chance after

breaking clear of the Birmingham defense.
