Preston 1 Fulham 2 - Views from the Bench
A 2-1 win, at Deepdale, against Preston North End, saw Slavisa Jokanovic`s side equal the long-standing club record of fifteen games without defeat.
After the game Slavisa gave his thoughts to the media on what he`d just witnessed with the boss remarking,
'It is massive for us in one of the toughest away games we played.
'We knew what we would find here, they put us under lots of pressure, we didn't find it in the first 45 minutes but in the second half we grew up and we showed great spirit.
'We pushed hard after they scored and we realised we are still in a strong position to win the game and in the end it's credit for the ambition and the quality that they showed today, especially at the end of the match.
'They put us under stress and they are a strong and intensive side. The way for us to win the game in this kind of situation in the last minute, we must be satisfied.'
Fulham just seem to have this knack of grinding out wins in stoppage time don`t they.
As for the Preston North End manager, Alex Neil, he seemed a little miffed when he remarked about the game,
'I don't think the best team won the game. People talk about Fulham being the best team in the division.
'I thought we were the better side, we had the better chances. For how much ball we had at the top end of the pitch we need to hurt them a little bit more.
'I thought my team were brilliant, I really did. I think our naivety at the end is what has probably cost us.
'I'm critical when I don't think we've played well but I thought we didn't everything I asked of them today.'
Onward and upwards Fulham.
