Roy Hodgson had few complaints about Fulham’s defeat at Blackburn Rovers which ended their back-to-back winning run in the Premier League.

Hodgson said: “I thought we were looking pretty good value for a draw and it was unfortunate that Blackburn got the break and we didn’t. It was an even game in which we gave a very good account of ourselves. It’s disappointing not to get a point but it would have been more disappointing if the performance had been worse, and I thought it was more than satisfactory. Goals decide games and they got the goal. We had our chances to win the game in both halves with Paul Robinson twice pulling off good saves from Andy Johnson.”

Hodgson admitted midfielder Jimmy Bullard could be a doubt for Tuesday’s Carling Cup clash with Burnley after he found himself on the end of two clattering challenges from Keith Andrews and Brett Emerton.

Hodgson, who refused to comment on suggestions Bullard had been deliberately targeted, said: “He’s a bit sore and there were two or three quite strong tackles on him which were correctly sanctioned. He was in the wars today but he’s come through it. I don’t think there is any lasting injury, but we will probably have to assess tomorrow and Monday and see whether he is fit for Tuesday’s game.”
