The honours were shared at Craven Cottage in the West London derby but it was a disappointing outcome for Fulham supporters.

Although the result saw the side set a new club record of 16 games unbeaten, the fact that Fulham surrendered a 2-0 lead was a bitter pill to swallow,

After the game both managers spoke to the media.

First up was Slavisa Jokanovic with the Fulham boss disappointed at the outcome of the game, remarking,

‘We cannot be satisfied. I am not here to fight for records, I am here to win the games. We didn’t win. I cannot be satisfied. It’s the record not important to me.

‘We managed to score two goals, we had it under control, but the first goal they scored caused important damage.

‘After one unforced mistake they scored the second goal. They deserved that goal because they made a few important entrances and had some chances, half chances.

‘We didn’t try to change the style. We had possession but without taking on defensive lines. Our solution cannot be to change the style, and we didn’t try to do that.’

As for the Queens Park Rangers manager, Ian Holloway, he was by far the happier of the two, commenting about his sides comeback,

‘As the game went on, I’m disappointed we didn’t end with three points. I’m delighted with the character.

‘I needed half-time to have a rant and say ‘wait a minute, get a bit closer to people’. I was fuming.

‘I told them to get after people and luckily for me my subs helped. We got about them and we deserved what we got.

‘I believe in my team and we what we are doing. Do I expect young lads to be consistent? Not really. But I will teach them.’

The two points dropped makes the task of securing an automatic promotion place that bit more difficult for Fulham.
