Fulham Head Scott Parker rued his side’s fortune in our 2-2 draw at West Bromwich Albion, pointing to the fact the game should’ve been wrapped up at half-time.

Two second half goals pegged Fulham back and it needed an Ivan Cavaleiro header to salvage a point in the Midlands.

“The game should be out of sight at half-time,” he said. “I thought we were fantastic in the first half, we moved the ball well. They had to make changes after 20 minutes. We had some big chances, the game should be done at the interval.

“Second half we didn’t do well enough when you’re under pressure from long throws. Our subs came on and did very well, we have to deal with a point. We’re disappointed it’s not three but we keep moving.

“I realise big chances were there to kill this game off. We weren’t on the right side of those moments today. We played some good football, but you need to put those moments away. That was the main factor.” Scott Parker and Sam Allardyce

Parker’s substitutions changed the flow of the game, with Harrison Reed and Cavaleiro combining brilliantly for the second goal.

“We looked a little bit flat second half,” he admitted. “We needed a bit of a lift. We changed our shape slightly and it worked well.

“There’s 18 games left in the season and there’s still a long way to go. A lot of strange results are around and we’ll keep pushing with a team moving in the right direction.”
