Harry Wilson was disappointed that Fulham faded to draw against Middlesbrough yesterday despite his brilliant debut goal.
The Welsh winger, who joined from Liverpool last month, scored a fantastic opener after cutting in from the right flank but Marco Silva’s side were denied an opening weekend win by Marc Bola’s late leveller. Wilson told FFCTV of his frustration that the Whites couldn’t hold on to all three points:
“It would have been nicer if my goal was the winning goal. I feel like 1-0 is always a dangerous scoreline, the other team is always in the game. We’re a bit disappointed that we didn’t create a bit more to try and get that second goal, but I think for a lot of the game we played some good things and, as always, there’s stuff we can go away and work on and make sure we get stuff right for Huddersfield.”
Wilson was pleased with his personal impact and believes he has already developed a good understanding with his new Fulham team-mates:
“I think Josh done well to keep hold of the ball and set it back to me around the edge of the box and, when I get it there, I’m always trying to work half a yard to get the shot off and thankfully I was able to do that and it went in. To hear that roar once it hit the back of the net was fantastic and definitely a feeling I’ve missed.
I feel like on the right side we had quite a good combination. I feel like we’re players that understand each other’s game. We all want to play similar styles of football and I felt we had a nice balance with Kenny on the overlap, me coming in and Josh finding them pockets. I felt we put good moves together, especially in the first half and the early stages of the second. The more we play together, the better understanding we’ll get and hopefully we’ll be able to get more chances.”
