QPR 1 Fulham 2 - Views from the Bench

QPR 1 Fulham 2 - Views from the Bench

Fulham took the honours in the West London derby, at Loftus Road, but had to survive a frantic finale from QPR.

After the game both managers talked to the media, Slavisa Jokanovic had this to say,

'I am always happy with three points and to win a west London derby.

'We had to be brave. The last few minutes it was a completely different game. A lot of things were happening in the penalty box, but we defended well.

'Unfortunately, we have another player in hospital tonight. It is some kind of dislocation of his shoulder. But hopefully after the international break we will get some of our important players back.'

Those added minutes, ten in total, seemed like an eternity, especially after QPR had pulled a goal back.

As for the QPR manager, Ian Holloway, he had this to say,

'The disappointing thing was the second goal, just after they missed a penalty and justice was done there.

'But after that, they broke again and when that ball got squared, how can we have two touches on the edge of our area, just after they've missed a penalty?

'We kept going and we should have got a point out of that. But such is life.'

It is Ian and you probably have a valid point about not clearing the loose ball after the penaly.
