Chelsea loanee David Datro Fofana emerged as the hero for Burnley, scoring twice in the second half to secure a thrilling 2-2 draw against Fulham at Turf Moor. The result keeps Burnley seven points from safety, while Fulham’s poor form continues with just one win in seven matches.
Fulham seemed in control with a two-goal lead within 21 minutes, courtesy of Joao Palhinha and Rodrigo Muniz. However, the introduction of Fofana in the second half sparked a comeback, as he headed in Lorenz Assignon’s cross in the 71st minute to give Burnley hope.
The dream home debut for Fofana became a reality in added time when he slid in to bundle Wilson Odobert’s low cross over the line, earning Burnley a valuable point.
Despite Fulham dominating for much of the game and Burnley enduring boos at half-time, Fofana’s late heroics provided a significant lift for Vincent Kompany’s side. The result leaves Burnley in 19th place, 13 points, with a tough battle against relegation ahead.
The draw showcased Burnley’s resilience and commitment to their style of play, but the uphill battle for survival continues, especially with challenging fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal on the horizon.
