Collins is happy but wanted more goals

Fulham assistant manager John Collins was in bouyant mood after his side took their tally to a maximum 27 points with victory over Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

Two goals for Luis Boa Morte, who only started the match because Louis Saha was injured, helped the Cottagers to secure their ninth consecutive win.

Collins said: "New players came in today and slotted in well. We had terrific movement and created lots of chances. The only problem was we didn't score enough goals.

"The conditions were slippy but we like that. We are a very fit side."

Bolton boss Sam Allardyce complained about his side's sloppy defending, but conceded that Fulham are going to be extremely difficult to stop this season.

Allardyce said: "On that performance Fulham looked like champions already. They were very good but we made it easy for them.

"I think the early goal cost us the game. My main concern is we don't defend as well at home as we have been doing away."
