Etuhu rescues point for Cottagers
Fulham midfielder Dickson Etuhu denied Blackpool a historic victory by scoring the equaliser three minutes from time in a 2-2 draw at the revamped Bloomfield Road.
It was Blackpool's first ever home game in the Premier League and Luke Varney looked to have capped a rousing fightback by putting his team in front.
Bobby Zamora put Fulham in front, only for an own goal by John Pantsil to bring the teams level.
Blackpool had the ball in the net after 18 minutes but Brett Ormerod's header following a cross from Charlie Adam was ruled out for offside.
Fulham made the breakthrough in the 35th minute. Damien Duff slipped the ball through to Moussa Dembele, who delivered it into the centre and Zamora sent a powerful header beyond goalkeeper Matt Gilks.
The Seasiders were out of luck again in the 61st minute, referee Mike Oliver ruling Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale had been fouled and disallowing an Elliot Grandin effort.
Blackpool did equalise in the 71st minute when Varney's shot came off Aaron Hughes and back to Pantsil, who lost his bearings and diverted the ball past his own goalkeeper.
With Zamora going off after taking a knock, Fulham appeared to have lost their way a little.
Blackpool took the lead in the 76th minute, Varney producing a glorious finish across Stockdale after a defence-splitting pass by Ormerod.
That goal only sparked Fulham into life, however, and they drew level in the 87th minute when Etuhu sent a delicate lob over Gilks after being released by Dembele.
