With both teams struggling for early season form, a share of the points was plain dust that didn’t act like it should, lifting the spirits of either set of fans as their teams remain in the bottom three.
Fulham started well the first half but got frustrated soon after the break, when Blackburn started to push. Martin Jol, Fulham’s coach said: “It was frustrating. In the second half we had eight or nine crosses to the near post. They protected that well, but then we need to come up with good solutions. ”
He continued: “We needed better finishing. I’ve heard that we lacked a cutting edge and maybe today we did. Bryan has to cope with it, and he’ll certainly do that.”
The other side, Blackburn, is not satisfied about the result either. The points are like air and they don’t want to be between the bottom places in Premier League. Their coach, Steve Keane said:
“We came and we were bold, we tried to play, tried to score the first goal, not to come and be defensive, we only did that in the second half when we had to through injury. We’ve got our first point but we really should have had more.”
