Fulham Coach Slavisa Jokanovic was satisfied with Fulham’s performance, as his side fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Preston North End.

A late Denis Odoi strike pulled the Whites level in the last minute of the game to win a point for the home side. “I must be satisfied,” Jokanovic stated in his post-match press conference.

“In the second half, we connected with a few more passes, held the ball more and took more risks. We showed great personality and character on the pitch.

“We started to play with more confidence and personality. It’s important that we recovered.

“Generally, our plan didn't work well in the first half, but in the end we created many chances.

“We’ve lost a few points at home late on, but today, we won one point in the last minute, so we must be satisfied.

“In my opinion, we deserved a point,” said Fulham's Head Coach.

Jokanovic also praised the opposition for the level of intensity and for their style of football that they showed through the entire match.

“Preston deserve credit too. It’s not easy playing against them,” Jokanovic said.

“They played with a very high intensity and we didn't adapt quickly enough. They’re one of the best teams on the ball.

“They put us under pressure and we lost too many balls in our own half. After the mistakes, they scored and could have scored many more, especially in the first half. We didn’t find a solution for the physical part of the game and they won all the challenges.”

Jokanovic brought on Tom Cairney during the break and is delighted with the impact his captain had on the game.

“We found some help from Tom Cairney, who in the first two minutes connected with a few key passes. At the other end, David Button saved us during a few complicated situations.

“We didn’t use Tom at the start of the season because of a few complications, but he completed some work in the last session and we expect him to be available for the game that is in front of us,” he said.
