Jokanovic hits out as Ful­ham blow their lead

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Football - By Tom Pren­tki at Craven Cot­tage

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.”
