Fulham boss Chris Coleman was pleased to claim a clean sheet from their goalless with West Ham United.

The London derby saw plenty of goalscoring chances at both ends, and despite the late sending off of West Ham’s Paul Konchesky, Coleman felt neither side had any luck in front of goal.

“I think it was a typical London derby, it was fiery,” Coleman told Sky Sports.

“I think both teams attempted to win the game. Antti (Niemi) didn’t really have that much to do in the second half.

“I think it got a little bit stale for about 15 or 20 minutes, where neither team could break the other down.

“It’s a clean sheet for us, which is good. I’m more pleased with the fact that we’ve put in two good performances on the bounce.

“It shows a little bit of consistency for us, which we’ve lacked a little bit in the last six weeks.

“It just didn’t fall for us today. It wasn’t for the want of trying nor a lack of effort.

“The guys gave what they had. You hope now and again, you get a bit of luck in front goal.

“I don’t think either team had that today.”
