Dickson Etuhu felt Fulham were ‘robbed’ after Tottenham survived a second-half onslaught to come away from Craven Cottage with all three points.
The Nigerian midfielder, a second half substitute for Danny Murphy yesterday afternoon, was particularly aggrieved by Peter Walton’s failure to penalise Kyle Walker for a clear handball in a late goalmouth scramble.
We were robbed. I thought we were the better team but didn’t get the luck. The handball incident was ridiculous. I had a word with the ref but he said he didn’t see, and that if it was then he’s sorry.
If we got the penalty it would’ve been a tight game. But this is the Premier League and you get punished.
Etuhu remains unworried by Fulham’s current league position, despite Martin Jol’s side sitting just a point above the relegation zone.
We’re doing the right things and are heading in the right direction and I’m sure we’ll start creeping up the table soon.
He also felt for Zdenek Grygera, who suffered a serious knee injury at the end of the first half. Fulham are awaiting the results of a scan to determine how long the Czech defender will be out for.
That touched me because it happened right in front of the bench and I heard him scream. He’s a tough man and for him to react like that it must be serious.
