Bristol City and Fulham were involved in one of the underwhelming football results of the weekend in the Championship as both sides had to settle for a share of the points. Aleksandar Mitrovic put the visitors ahead after he was set up by Harry Willson in the 50th minute. Bristol battled on after the goal and took the game to Fulham. They were rewarded in the 79th minute when Kasey Palmer finished from close range after a brilliant save by keeper Paulo Gazzaniga from a Chris Martin shot.
Bristol City’s Nigel Pearson: “The players showed great tenacity against good opponents. While Fulham could have had more goals, so could we.” he added. “I’m not kidding myself and we have a lot of work still to do, but the players know their jobs and that they have to defend as a team.”
Fulham’s Marco Silva: “The goal was clearly offside. It wasn’t a difficult decision and I can’t understand why the linesman failed to spot it. I have seen a replay, but I knew at the time from the bench that it was offside. A poor decision has gone against us.” he added. “I wasn’t happy with our first-half display. But we made a couple of changes at the interval and the second half was much better. The substitutes made an impact, but the whole team played with more purpose. We just have to be calmer with our finishing. There were so many clear opportunities created, but we couldn’t get the second goal to kill them off.”
