Martin Jol felt Fulham were worth a point at Swansea this afternoon – but criticised his players for getting ‘too comfortable’ as they slipped to another away defeat.
The Whites were lethargic in the first half and fell behind thanks to a Clint Dempsey own goal early in the second period. The American then spurned a golden chance to claim a point as his late penalty was saved and Danny Graham doubled Swansea’s advantage in injury time.
We were fine, but almost too comfortable thinking we would get our chances because we’d had three or four good away games before this. But then we scored an own goal, which is a disappointing thing.
After that I thought we took control and they had to go back and defend. We created chances and then we got the penalty which, of course, we would have liked to score. Everyone was congratulating the little fella [Kerim Frei] and it was awful to see Clint miss. But that’s football, as we experienced before against Chelsea.
It wasn’t until after we scored the own goal that we started to create chances – Bryan Ruiz, Clint – then we had the penalty situation and it was an ideal scenario if we had scored.
