Fulham manager Chris Coleman has demanded an improved performance from the Cottagers at Livingtsone tomorrow following Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Motherwell.
Coleman reserved some praise for debutant Jerome Bonnissel, the 30-year-old Frenchman who joined from Glasgow Rangers last week. He said: “I was pleased that a lot of the players got 90 minutes but I wasn’t pleased at the performance. Bonnissel has had an injury and only played two 45-minute games before Saturday so you can’t blame him for tiring. He is a good player and I wanted him on the pitch for as long as possible so one plus was that he managed to play for 85 minutes.”
Louis Saha and Steve Marlet scored for Fulham but Coleman highlighted the introduction of James McFadden as a turning point in the game. He said: “I’ve heard a lot about McFadden and he looked good. I don’t like to single out players in my own team or the opposition but he has been injured and still looked sharp when he came on. He has that element of surprise and gave the crowd and his own players a lift.”
