Marco Silva admitted his frustration that Fulham were unable to claim all three points in his first match in charge, but believes there is plenty more to come from his side after their draw with Middlesbrough.

Debutant Harry Wilson conjured up the perfect start with a fine finish midway through the first half, but Fulham were unable to make their dominance count and were punished when Marco Bola grabbed a point for Boro with thirteen minutes to play.

Silva told his post-match press conference: “We have players out and in some weeks our team will be stronger and for sure we will be different. he physicality of the championship? The games are always in this way. But it is up to you decide what style you want to play and to answer what your opponents do, We have enough players who know what playing in the Championship means.

Of course there was frustration that we didn’t get the result that we wanted and that I believe we deserved. At this level when you have chances to be more clinical and kill the game you can be comfortable. We had chances and we were dominant. The goal was a good example. We should score the second goal – but that is football.
