Jol's Thoughts After Swansea City Defeat

Jol's Thoughts After Swansea City Defeat

Fulham boss Martin Jol shared his thoughts after his side's 2-0 defeat at Swansea City on Saturday.

Fulham were in confident mood after beating Liverpool at Anfield 1-0, as they looked to be only the second team to beat the Swans at the Liberty Stadium this season.

However, the Swans dominated the early stages, and it was only when they opened the scoring in the second half, that Jol's side started to create chances.

Dempsey failed to redeem himself after deflecting in Sinclair's shot to break the deadlock, as his penalty was saved late on by Vorm, and the Swansea shot-stopper also had to make further excellent saves to keep us in front.

Jol said:

"We were fine, but almost too comfortable thinking we would get our chances because we`d had three or four good away games before this,"

"But then we scored an own goal, which is a disappointing thing.

"After that I thought we took control and they had to go back and defend. We created chances and then we got the penalty which, of course, we would have liked to score. Everyone was congratulating the little fella [Kerim Frei] and it was awful to see Clint miss. But that`s football, as we experienced before against Chelsea [in the Carling Cup]."

"It wasn`t until after we scored the own goal that we started to create chances - Bryan Ruiz, Clint - then we had the penalty situation and it was an ideal scenario if we had scored,"

"Andy Johnson hasn`t been in the team for much of the past month, but he`s been playing terrifically and working hard in training,"

"As you have seen, every time he`s played he`s done well. He`s scored some important goals in the Europa League and there was his hat-trick against QPR, so I thought he earned his chance to play."
