Jokanovic hits out as Fulham blow their lead
Just as the snow returned, Fulham froze. Although the Cottagers extended their unbeaten run to a club record 16 games, they let a two-goal lead slip and dented their hopes for automatic promotion.
“I am not here fighting for some records, I am here to win games,” said Slavisa Jokanovic, the Fulham manager. “So many unforced mistakes, so many sloppy passes,” he added. “It’s simple – we weren’t strong enough to win the game.”
When Tom Cairney and Lucas Piazon put the home side two up, a simple victory seemed inevitable. But Massimo Luongo pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time and that proved the catalyst for a fight back from Ian Holloway’s side, who levelled through Pawel Wszolek nine minutes from time.
“I was fuming,” said Holloway on QPR’s first-half show. “I needed to get them in and have a rant at them. As the game went, I’m disappointed that we didn’t come away with three points.”
