Neither side previously possessed a scoring ratio better than one goal-a-game in the league this season, and this lack of incision was on show as both sides bombed forward in an entertaining contest without forcing a breakthrough.
Premier League's goal decision system
was tested as Fulham substitute Hugo Rodallega appealed when he incorrectly believed he had scrambled in at the back post after beating Wes Hoolahan to a header that was blocked by Ruddy.
"We didn't make the most of our opportunities. I am really disappointed not to come away with a result.
"It is a concern when you do not get the result you feel you deserved.
"We would have liked to go into the Manchester United game on the back of a good result today."
Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen:
"We have been working so hard since I took over. It was so important we got something today.
"I have worked with the players for a month, so I have a good idea of what they are capable of. Scott Parker's first touch was excellent, and he struck it so quickly. He typifies the character of the team.
"Alan Curbishley's appointment had been discussed even before I came here. We travel up to Hull in good confidence."
