West Bromwich Albion secured a point on manager Roy Hodgson's first return to Fulham since leaving the club when Somen Tchoyi scored a late goal in a 1-1 draw on Wednesday. After United States forward Clint Dempsey had scored his 10th goal of the Premier League season for Fulham in the 69th minute, Tchoyi came off the bench and latched on to a pass from James Morrison to find the net in the 82nd. It was Hodgson's first match back at Craven Cottage since leaving for an ill-fated spell in charge of Liverpool after having taken Fulham to the 2010 Europa League final. Fulham rose a spot to 13th, nine points above the relegation zone. West Brom stayed in 15th spot, eight points from the drop zone.
