Nigerian King Of Assists Aluko Hits Seventh Goal Of The Season For FulhamSone Aluko continued his purple patch with his seventh goal of the season in all competitions as Fulham were held to a 2-2 draw by Blackburn Rovers on game week 28 in the Championship on Tuesday.

The Cottagers took the lead in the 45th minute when their Nigeria international swept the ball home in the center after Johansen had delivered a low cross from the left.

Two minutes after the restart, Aluko saw his effort half-blocked and the Blackburn Rovers goalie was able to gather the ball.

Conway converted his spot-kick in the 79th minute to restore parity, only for Fulham to retake the lead again through Cyriac, but the home team did not kill off the game and allowed Blackburn Rovers to equalize in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Already a strong contender for Fulham Player of the Month for March, Aluko has tallied 11 assists in 36 appearances in the second-tier this term, including four in the last ten days.

Blackburn Rovers defensive midfielder Hope Akpan was an unused substitute against the London team.
