Martin Jol felt his Fulham side deserved at least a point out of the London derby this afternoon.

Tottenham led thanks to first-half goals from Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon before a second-half fightback, sparked by an own goal from Younes Kaboul, tested their defensive mettle. The home side had a decent shout for a penalty against Kyle Walker turned down and Jermain Defoe scored the three points for Spurs with the last kick of the game.

I thought we deserved at least a point. Tottenham had three attempts on goal in the first half and scored two goals.

We must have had 26 or 30 attempts after half-time. He (Friedel) was probably the best player on the pitch, but if you don’t score then you have a problem.

Jol also felt Peter Walton should have awarded Fulham a spot-kick after Walker appeared to grab the ball between his hands in the middle of a frantic goalmouth scramble in added time.

I felt we were a bit hard done by in the penalty situation. It was a penalty.
