Slavisa Jokanovic was left frustrated by Fulham’s failure to convert the chances that could have extended their winning run to seven games but struck a philosophical note after the Whites’ 1-1 draw at Bolton.
Matt Targett gave Fulham the perfect start inside five minutes at the Macron Stadium – heading in his first goal for the club since signing from Southampton on loan, but Fulham were denied all three points by a world class equaliser from Adam Le Fondre.
Jokanovic told his post-match press conference:
It’s part of football. We came here with the intention to win the game. We opened the game well. We scored one goal, but we could have scored two.
We dominated the game, especially in the first half. From one moment in the second half, they scored their goal, and then they played the game they wanted to play.
Jokanovic was disappointed that Fulham failed to continue their winning run – but felt there were positives to take from the contest.
You cannot dominate for 90 minutes every game. We didn’t play a perfect game, but we still made enough chances to win the game.
We created many chances and tried to find some sort of benefit with our substitutions. We tried to find Aboubakar Kamara and Aleksandar Mitrovic with the ball. But in the end, we tried a lot of chances, but we couldn’t score. That’s it.
At the end, we created enough chances in the first and the second halves to win the game. We got only point today, but we have be ready and keep going for the next game.
