Fulham coach Marco Silva lamented his side's lack of intensity in the second half, as Fulham drew to 1-1 with Blackpool at Craven Cottage.

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s early tap in was cancelled out by Josh Bowler’s strike on the 57th minute.

“The result was not good, it was disappointing,” Silva stated in his post-match presser.

“We started brilliantly against a team that changed everything to play against us, their normal approach, but we did it very well.

“We scored a really good goal, and there was a great chance for Harry [Wilson] to score the second.

“The way we were playing, I could smell the second goal was coming.

“Unfortunately, we had a break as our fan was in a serious situation and our thoughts are with him.

“We expected some changes from them after, but the game was under control.

“It was a bad performance in the second half, we played too slow and when you play slow, you give belief to the opposition.

“Blackpool weren’t proactive but waited for our mistakes.

“Then we lost some principles in our mode, and when that happens, it’s difficult.

“The second half from the referee was really bad, the way he managed the game.

“It was many small decisions and it’s difficult to understand why he always stopped the game.

“I prepare my players to control everything, and when we analyse things, we’ll find what we did well and what wasn’t good.

“I want them to show more emotional balance, and keep the principles, even if you lose a bit of confidence.

“The players in that triangle that we use in our build-up are key.

“If you don’t start well from the back, you’ll have problems.

“We didn’t move the ball quick enough and that encouraged them to press a bit more.

“We should’ve shown the same intensity in the second half as the beginning of the game.

“It’s another moment to learn and to improve, as more fights will come for us”
