Fulham 1 Cardiff 1 - Views from the Bench

At Craven Cottage, on Saturday, Fulham came so close to taking the three points on offer.

Only an equaliser, eight minutes from time, prevented Fulham from becoming the first time to beat Cardiff City, in the Championship, this season whilst also registering a first home win of the season.

After the game, both managers spoke to the media, with Slavisa Jokanovic remarking,

'We can be satisfied that we showed a fighting spirit and we pushed hard.

'But we were not clinical at times and in the last minutes we didn't score a second goal, we didn't manage the situation well enough and we paid an expensive price.

'We made a few mistakes before they scored their goal and we missed some quality in our final passes.

'We are disappointed. That's normal but we have another chance of a win at home immediately in front of us. I hope we are going to do it this week against Hull.'

Let`s hope that is the case, this coming Wednesday.

As for the Cardiff City manager, Neil Warnock, he had this to say,

'We showed good character to come back with only seven minutes to go.

'It's a different game to any other in the Championship. Nobody else plays like Fulham and I thought our big lads at the back adapted really well. Fulham will have a good run at some stage.

'If any questions needed answering, I thought today answered them. We were playing against a different type of team and we went behind as well, which could have killed a lesser team.'

Faint praise for Fulham from Warnock there.

Conceding another late goal at home, to see a victory snatched away from the side is a difficult pill to swallow.
