Tom Cairney saw his opener cancelled out by Nico Yennaris as Fulham and Brentford shared the points at Craven Cottage in the last west Londond derby of the season.
It was as you were for Fulham after Stefan Johansen recovered from a knock at Huddersfield to make the starting XI for the west London derby, while injury hit Brentford made three changes for the tie.
Fulham took the lead after only eight minutes - Aluko charged forward looking for the pass which was defended well by Brentford, but he allowed their defence no time to reset and won it immediately before feed Sessegnon, whose cross was met by Cairney to put it into the net.
Brentford got back on level terms, however, in the 34th when Nico Yennaris was played in on the edge of the box by Konstantin Kerschbaumer, with the number eight sticking the ball into the top corner of Marcus Bettinelli's goal.
Fulham had the chance to retake the lead on the stroke of half time when they were awarded a penalty after Yoann Barbet took out Stefan Johansen in the box, but their penalty woes continued after Cairney's spot kick was saved by David Bentley.
Bentley was on hand in the second half to deny Fulham from retaking the lead, making a number of strong saves to frustrate the home side for the second 45.
Bettinelli 7: Did what he had to do well - nothing could be done about the Brentford goal which was inch perfect in his top corner. Looked commanding but had a few problems with kicking from ground.
Fredericks 6: Caused problems down the right and did his defensive duties well when Brentford would attack on the counter.
Malone 7: Did well down the left once again, with him and Sessegnon causing Jota to track back time and time again. His crosses were once again spot on and it must be frustrating for him that more often than not, there is no one on the end of them.
Kalas 7: Was strong at the back with Ream and did well to deny Brentford on the counter. Himself and Ream were able to marshal Vibe relatively well during the 90 minutes.
Ream 7: Some good reading of the game saw him deny Vibe after the Dane looked to be through on goal.
McDonald 6: Did well anchoring the midfield and cutting off Brentford's midfielders when they cut inside from the wings.
Cairney 7: Scored Fulham's first goal and was in good form in the middle of the park. Missed the penalty but it was a good save from Bentley to deny him.
Johansen 6: The engine in the Fulham midfield once again, although he didn't have the same effect on this game as he has done in recent weeks. Despite being a doubt for this game he was once again up and down the pitch for the entire game.
Ayite 6: Missed an absolute sitter in the first half but in his defence the ball did bobble. Wasn't effective enough with his head in the six yard box and should've put at least one headed chance away.
Aluko 7: Gave both Field and Canos an absolutely torrid time with his skill on the ball. but was a lot quieter in the second half as Fulham went looking for a winner.
Sessegnon 7: Set up the first goal and was keen and alert to see Ayite in behind the Brentford line from time to time. His through ball for Ayite's fluff in the first half. Faded in the second half and was replaced with half an hour remaining.
Piazon 6: Didn't have much of an impact on the game when he came on as Fulham struggled to put away chances and get that much needed second goal.
Kebano 6: Was brought on to add another dimension to the game but that didn't come off the hosts.
