Sidwell rescues 2-2 EPL draw for Fulham vs Everton


LONDON (AP) -Steve Sidwell grabbed a 90th-minute equalizer for Fulham in a 2-2 home draw with Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, denying the visitors a comeback win inspired by Marouane Fellaini.

Sidwell's close-range finish from Dimitar Berbatov's scuffed shot earned a Fulham a scarcely deserved point at Craven Cottage.

Everton fell behind for the fifth straight league match when goalkeeper Tim Howard pushed a seventh-minute free kick from Bryan Ruiz onto the post and into his own net, but recovered well to dominate the game.

Fellaini equalized in the 55th from Kevin Mirallas' cut-back, and the Belgium midfielder put Everton ahead 17 minutes later, chesting down a long ball and shooting past goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

Everton moved up a place to fourth, replacing Tottenham after its 1-0 loss to Wigan.
