Fulham saw their relegation from the Premier League confirmed on Tuesday night, with a 4-1 away defeat to Watford.
The Cottagers needed at least a draw to keep their faint survival hopes alive at least mathematically and they went into half time level, after Ryan Babel equalised following Abdoulaye Doucoure's opener for the hosts at Vicarage Road.
Scott Parker's side are the second team to be relegated from the Premier League in 2018/19, after Huddersfield had their demotion confirmed on Saturday with defeat to Crystal Palace.
Parker is the third manager at Craven Cottage this season, after Slavisa Jokanovic and his successor Claudio Ranieri were dismissed by Shahid Khan and the Fulham board for poor results.
Expensive summer signings including Jean Michael Seri, Andre Zambo Anguissa and Alfie Mawson have failed to gel for last season's Championship playoff winners, while £20m Aleksandar Mitrovic has arguably been the only transfer to provide some semblance of value.
A woeful defensive record has been Fulham's undoing in their first season back in the top flight.
