Fulham’s poor form continued even after the appointment of a new manager

Fulham’s poor form continued even after the appointment of a new manager.

Stuart Gray recently took charge of the beleaguered Championship outfit, who have failed to win a league match since October. They were hoping to finally bring an end to this poor form by getting an away win against Bolton Wanderers. Bolton have been struggling for form themselves and it presented Fulham with a great opportunity to get some confidence under the belt. Things looked extremely promising after Fulham took the lead through Garbutt before half an hour on the clock. The opposition, though, were able to get back into the match through Clough.

Fulham had numerous opportunities in the first half to effectively put the score beyond any doubt. However, they failed to do so and Bolton were leading in the space of 13 minutes.Clough scored the equaliser in the 61st minute followed by the second 13 minutes later. Just when it seemed that it was going to be yet another disappointing result for the London outfit, McCormack came up with a late goal in the 85th minute to salvage at least a point for the away team. Results continue to be disappointing for Fulham and it will not be long before they find themselves in the relegation zone.

“I said to the players at half time we haven’t been clinical enough and we need to be more ruthless. Then same again second half. We had a great opportunity to make it 2-0 and suddenly it bites you and Bolton get back in the game. When they go 2-1 up you are wondering if it is one of those games. And once again we are relying on Ross to hit a ‘worldie’. With the amount of chances we created I should be talking about three points and a good away win,” said Gray.
