Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic was not entirely happy after watching his Fulham side snatch a late victory at home to Wigan Athletic.

Second half goals from Denis Odoi and Neeskens Kebano – the latter arriving in the 94th minute – saw the Whites come from behind to claim an important 3-2 win at Craven Cottage.

“I can be proud of my team’s desire to score the goals to win the game, but from another side I was really disappointed with some parts of the game,” Jokanovicstated in his post-match press conference.

“We weren’t solid enough, we didn’t show a good enough attitude or desire to defend, or when we were playing without the ball, and this is an important part of football, too.

“It’s not important that we have 73 per cent possession of the ball if you cannot fix the problem without the ball. This kind of present we gave them today is simply not acceptable. If we don’t improve this part of the game we cannot be successful.

“I expect I’m going to find something different on Tuesday night [against Nottingham Forest] and we’re going to be still better in some parts of the game.

“At the end we scored the third goal and we go home satisfied with the points, but I’m not satisfied with what we offered today.”

He continued: “We are working so hard to be more solid and more competitive. I’m always after the clean sheet.

“Today we made ourselves a bit nervous without any pressure from the opposition team. We weren’t strong enough to stop [Omar] Bogle – this kid pushed us and did some big damage to us. This is not acceptable and we need to stop this kind of situation.”
