Fulham boss Chris Coleman admitted his side deserved to finish empty-handed but refused to criticise his players too heavily.

He said: “If we had come with away anything we would have been lucky. Wigan bossed it in the first half.

“We huffed and puffed a bit in the second but they had the better chances and played the better football.

“We were disappointed with the way we defended. I can’t get stuck into the players because they’ve been superb all season. We have to put it behind us and concentrate on Everton.

“I’m not taking anything away from Wigan because they’re a good team. I think they’re better this year than last.”
