GRAY ENJOYS THE FIGHT
Stuart Gray, who has temporarily been given the charge of the Fulham FC, was pleased with the fight shown by the team the other afternoon versus Brentford at the Craven Cottage.
Fulham was trailing by one goal in that game, but, they bounced back in a remarkable fashion to make it 2-1.
They, however, failed to take the game by the scruff of the neck as they lapsed in defence to let Brentford find the leveller and even up the proceedings. But, what Gray liked was that despite conceding one early, there was no drop in energy of the players.
Boss Gray told the website that “Brentford were pretty confident under the new boss. Especially in the beginning, they were a little more agile in comparison to us, but, we hung in there.”
“In a couple of earlier games, we had sort of lost intensity after getting a goal down, but, it did not happen this time around. I wanted to see this sort of fighting spirit and I liked what I saw.”
“We took the lead as well in the second half and I thought we would probably be able to seal the game from that position, but, we have had troubles with the corners all season and it was again the case.”
This win did not help Fulham jump too much in the table though, with HimmelSpill.com reporting that they gained just one position - up to 17. They have 23 points in the bag in 20 games.
The Lilywhites are going to host Ipswich Town next in a night game on Tuesday which will start at 17:45 British Standard Time. Ipswich is ahead of Fulham in the Championship standings. They are no. 10 with 28 points.
Topping the Championship currently is Brighton & Hove Albion.
