Fulham Coach Slavisa Jokanovic was left frustrated by the result on a topsy-turvy afternoon at Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Having battled back from one goal down, Fulham were unable to withstand a second half barrage from a physical Wolves outfit and saw a 3-1 lead slip away, with the hosts snatching a late go ahead goal.

However, with 1 minute remaining Floyd Ayité spared the Whites blushes when he headed home his second goal of the game and meant the shares were spoiled and the match ended 4-4.

“I don’t know how to react after this,” he reflected. “We were leading 3-1 and after that we nearly lost the game.

“Then after that we battled back. I don’t know whether the feeling I have is whether we lost today or we won.

“Generally we controlled many things. We could have scored more goals and been more clinical again.

“We did not kill the game. We had many crosses into the box and they were stronger than us. We did not manage our situation very well in the last half an hour.

“Wolves with very simple football caused us many problem. If you want to be more competitive and more important team we need to find a solution to this kind of approach.”

With a two goal cushion at the interval, Paul Lambert went more direct in the second half and threw bodies forward.

Having expected a physical encounter, Jokanovic was left frustrated not only by the inability of his side to put the encounter beyond doubt and deal with the aerial barrage.

“We conceded two very simple goals,” he stated. “I don’t know why it caused so many problems.

“In this situation we need to be more solid. We expected this kind of situation and we have to improve ourselves in that side of the game.

“We start not very relaxed. We did not kill the game before they scored their second goal.

“At the end we didn’t put it beyond doubt and we were not solid enough.

“I tried to find a little bit of control by brining on Scott because it was very clear my team was losing control.

“We have to recover our minds ahead of Tuesday night as it will be a new challenge.

“We have to push hard and try and win three points in a few nights.”
