Fulham manager Jol declares draw a missed opportunity

Published

Fulham boss Martin Jol admitted he was disappointed that his side could not push on for a victory after Fulham secured a point in a goalless draw against West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Jol was left rueing a number of missed chances from his players after a dominant first-half display failed to produce a goal and a less than convincing second-half left Fulham with just a point.

The Fulham boss revealed he thought his team deserved to secure their first win of the season, but was realistic in his reflections on the game.

“In the first half you can’t play better than we did. Possession-wise it looked like a home game to be honest,” said the Cottagers boss.

“We controlled the game. They had their first opportunity in the 63rd or 64th minute, that says it all.”

He continued:

“But we were sloppy in the second half, we gave away the initiative and if you do that when you are away from home you have to defend.”

The Dutchman added that a point was not an unreasonable result, with West Brom threatening to grab a win in the latter stages of the game:

“But in the end they had two very good chances so I can live with the draw, but I have to say if you play in the way we did in the first half I think we deserved more.”
