Stuart Gray bemoaned Fulham’s lack of ruthlessness in killing off beleaguered Bolton when they were on top as the Whites had leave Lancashire with just a point.
The Fulham caretaker manager was disappointed that his side were unable to put the game to bed following a first half the visitors had completely dominated. Indeed, after Zach Clough’s quickfire second half brace, Fulham were indebted to Ross McCormack for rescuing a point with a trademark late free-kick.
Gray was visibly upset afterwards: “I can’t believe I am only talking about taking one point. I said to the players at half time we haven’t been clinical enough and we need to be more ruthless. Then same again second half.
We had a great opportunity to make it 2-0 and suddenly it bites you and Bolton get back in the game “When they go 2-1 up you are wondering if it is one of those games. And once again we are relying on Ross to hit a ‘worldie’. With the amount of chances we created I should be talking about three points and a good away win.
“We created so many chances and I don’t think I have been in a game where there have been so many one on ones with keeper. We missed the target on two occasions and hit the woodwork twice. I have been in the game long enough though to know if you don’t convert your chances then it can comeback to haunt you.”
“You know they are going to have a 10 minutes period in the game and that 10 minutes period was when they got their noses in front.”
