Martin Jol was left feeling disappointed after his Fulham side failed to finish their second half chances and claim a famous win at local rivals Chelsea in last night’s local derby.
The Fulham manager belived his side finished the contest the stronger and felt that a lack of composure from left-back John Arne Riise in the six yard box cost his side a chance of all three points.
It is pretty decent to get a point, but I feel we should l have nicked it in the second half. Our shape was good, they had a lot of pressure but we have three or four good chances – nine times out of ten we would have broken them.
John Arne Riise’s miss was disappointing. I told him that he should have shot across the goalkeeper and into the bottom corner. He covered 80 or 90 yards and not to score was disappointing.
We had a lot of players coming back; Mahamadou Diarra was playing his first game, Gorgios Karagounis was lacking a bit of rhythm, and we leave here thinking we could have nicked it.
