Fulham goalscorer Clint Dempsey took the positives after the Cottagers extended their unbeaten top-flight run at West Ham.

Mark Hughes’ side made it seven games unbeaten in the Premier League this term after a hard-fought draw at Upton Park.

“We’re a little bit disappointed with not getting three points but we’ll take the positive that we do have a point and hopefully we can continue this unbeaten run.”

He denied it was not almost inevitable he would score against Green given what had happened at the World Cup and instead praised the keeper after he pulled off a string of top-class saves to earn his team a point.

“Fair play to him, I thought he had a really good game today, kept his team in the game and got them a point.”

But Dempsey did admit it was frustrating that the Cottagers – who have now drawn six out of their seven top flight games – could not close out the win.

“Its definitely frustrating, we thought today was a game where we could have got three points from, we started the second half a little slow but we still had our chances in the game and like I said, Green kept them in the game.”

He added: “I guess the positive is that we’re still unbeaten and we go into the national break I guess on a positive.”
