Harry Arter was sent off on his return to Cardiff as 10-man Fulham held on for a draw in the Championship.
Josh Murphy fired the hosts in front, only for Aleksandar Mitrovic tohit back from close range.
Arter, who spent last season on loan at Cardiff, was sent off after he was booked twice within two minutes in the second half.
That forced Fulham, who had enjoyed as much as 75% possession before then, back into their shells as they dug in for a point.
Scott Parker’s side climb up to fourth in the Championship table,while Cardiff are up to 10th.
