Ray was happy with the return of Murphy and Zamora

Ray Lewington chose his post-match comments after yesterday’s draw at Bournemouth to remind the fans that pre-season is just that; preparation for the real thing.

Fulham’s caretaker manager said he was most pleased with the return to match action of goalscorer Bobby Zamora and skipper Danny Murphy.

That’s what pre-season friendly games are all about. The one thing you hope for in a pre-season friendly is that you suffer no injuries, to be brutally honest. We’ve come out injury free so that’s great.

We looked a bit leggy in the first half but between the Brentford game and today we’ve trained and it’s about where we are getting to, rather than where we are now. We looked better in the second half and could have scored a lot more goals.
