After the exhilarating finish yesterday, at Craven Cottage, whereby Fulham came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2, courtesy of a 96th minute equaliser, both managers spoke to the media.

Slaven Jokanovic had this to say,

‘They didn’t surprise us, they are one of the best teams off the ball, we are one of the best teams on the ball.

‘They put us under great pressure and after we made mistakes they could have scored more goals. We didn’t find a solution for the physical part of the game.

‘In the second half we connected with a few more passes and took more risks and I believe we deserved this point.

‘We lost a few points at home in the last minute and today we won one in the last minute so we are satisfied.’


A draw was definitely a result after being 2-0 down so early on in the encounter.

As for the Preston North End boss, Alex Neil, he had this to say,

‘Chris has come and collected so many crosses for us this season that have relieved pressure, and won us points, so I’m not going to be critical of him in terms of being an aggressive goalie, coming to try and help his team.

‘Time was up. The fourth official showed me his watch. It was 95 minutes and it started going to 20 and 30 seconds and the referee allowed them to put another ball into the box.

‘We hunted and pressed and grafted and ratted them all over the pitch and they couldn’t deal with it.

‘We need to have more quality in the final third. But I can’t ever question commitment and work rate.’


Does Alex Neil have a valid point about the amount of injury time played?
