Fulham Head Coach Scott Parker faced the media following the defeat to Leeds and was left deflated that his side couldn’t build on their excellent first half performance.

“Overall, the first half especially, I thought we were exceptional.”

He said. “We came here with a purpose about us to go and win the game.

We took it to a very good Leeds side who have navigated their way around this division for a few years now.

I thought we were superb in matching them. Ultimately over the course of the game, we need to be more clinical in the areas where we do carve out these chances.

We need to put one away and with the efficiency of Leeds in the second half, they were better in the final third.”

Automatic promotion will be a huge achievement after the result, but the boss knows the Championship is full of twists and turns.

“It’s going to be a big ask. I wouldn’t write it off yet.” He continued. “The reason being is we’re in a world where the unexpected can happen.

The way division is, and you’ve seen in the first two games that can be the case. We came here wanting to win the game and our ambition is to still keep going and we will do that.”

Scott was posed the question of the main debatable moments in the match. The first being Aleksandar Mitrovic’s arm on Ben White, an incident the Gaffer will need to review.

“I’ve not seen the incident at the moment. During the game I didn’t actually see it as an issue. I’ve not seen it over again so it would be unfair for me to comment at this stage.”

On the other hand, a decision that went against the lads was a strong handball penalty claim which incensed the 11 on the pitch.

“The players did seem to think it was a handball, it’s bounced up a little bit. It did look like a handball instantly, but I’ve not seen it again, so it would be unfair for me to pass judgement on it.

“I don’t think just the one penalty claim sums the first half up. We were very good, and we needed to be clinical when we did pressure them.

It was similar to last week where something needs to go in. As the game goes on, we conceded another couple.”
