Fulham coach Marco Silva was disappointed his team were unable to come away with the three points after conceding a late equaliser against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

Aleksandar Mitrovic netted goal number 41 of the campaign to put Fulham ahead but a last-minute Dominic Solanke penalty meant it was a mirrored result to when the two sides met at the Cottage earlier in the season.

“Unfortunately, it’s tough for us. It’s tough for us the decision. For me, it is a mistake from the referee," Marco started, discussing the late penalty decision.

"It wasn’t the best game to see, it definitely wasn’t. A lot of challenges. Both teams didn’t perform at their best in my opinion.

"We had a different week. We got promoted on Tuesday night and as you expect we celebrated and in the last few minutes of the game, we didn’t have the energy we should have.

"We knew that would happen in the last 30 minutes of the game. I think we controlled the game really well even though we didn’t play at our best level.

"There were not many chances for both teams."

Although mathematically it wouldn't have been over the line, we would have been closer to securing the title had we secured all three points but Marco knows his team must work hard to achieve what they deserve in their remaining games, the first opportunity of which arises on Tuesday evening.

"It means a lot for us. We want it, we will fight for it and it’s really important for us to get it as well.

"It will be tough against a very good side. Nottingham Forest are doing fantastic. The way they are fighting and the way they are doing it is unbelievable and they will create a lot of problems for us, I am 100 per cent sure of it.

"They will create problems but we will create problems as well. We want to be champions at home with our fans and to celebrate properly the situation.

"It is a great achievement for this football club."

Marco's side now sit on 99 league goals this season and he is hopeful of achieving the 100 goal mark.

"It reflects our philosophy, it reflects the way we have played, it reflects the way we are so dominant and it reflects our ambition and desire as a team," Marco described.

"We never play to draw football matches, we never play to not lose. We play to win and when you’re winning, you always want more.

"It’s a fantastic challenge for all of us to go over 100 goals and we will do our best to do it."
