West London derby fixtures, in recent weeks, have seen Fulham drop four points out of the six-points available.
Home fixtures, against Queens Park Rangers and Brentford, have seen Fulham surrender leads on both occasions.
Against Queens Park Rangers, the Cottagers let a 2-0 lead slip to draw 2-2 and, yesterday, against Brentford, a 1-0 lead disappeared when our visitors scored a late equaliser, in the 94th minute.
In reality, those four-points lost could be the difference between an automatic promotion spot and having to participate in the Championship play-offs.
However, Slavisa Jokanovic wasn’t too down-beat when he faced the media after the set-back against Brentford, at Craven Cottage, remarking to the media,
“When you arrive in the final 20 seconds of the game, you trust you are going to be all right.
“But they scored so late that we had no time to react.
“Brentford are a good football team who are only four-points off the play-offs, so it is normal for them to push hard.
“I am disappointed we did not win but I am not worried.
“I am not a depressive man, I am a happy man, so I don’t have time to cry, I have time only to support my team.”
Fulham go to Millwall, on Friday night, hoping to get back to winning ways and extend that unbeaten run to 22-games.
As for the Brentford manager, Dean Smith, he had this to say about the game, remarking to the media,
“That was the least we deserved as I thought the lads shaded it.
“The lads don’t give up and we are disappointed that we don’t have the points tally we fully deserve.”
That’s a matter of opinion but then again, I’m biased.
