Jonas Knudsen’s injury-time equaliser earned Ipswich a point against Fulham to give them an outside chance of reaching the Championship play-offs.

Moussa Dembele’s 17th league goal of the season, from Scott Parker’s cross, gave Fulham the lead.

But the hosts responded to remain eight points behind sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday with three games left.

Fulham have all but secured their Championship safety, remaining nine points clear of third-bottom MK Dons.

The Whites, who recovered from a 5-0 defeat by Brighton on Friday, are 16 goals better off than Karl Robinson’s side, who kept their slim hopes alive with a goalless draw at Hillsborough.

Left-back Knudsen’s first Ipswich goal came after a poor display from Mick McCarthy’s side, who did not register a shot on target until the 74th minute.

Fulham created more of the entertainment, as Ryan Tunnicliffe had a shot saved, Dembele shot wildly over from close range and Shaun Hutchinson’s header was brilliantly tipped over by Bartosz Bialkowski.

Dembele ended the gloom but after home fans ironically cheered a shot towards goal late on, the breakthrough finally came in stoppage time when David McGoldrick cleverly played in Freddie Sears and his low cross was rifled in by Knudsen.
