Fulham missed a golden opportunity to go five points clear at the top of the table as they suffered one of the close football scores of the midweek action in the Championship. Illiman Ndiaye scored the only goal of the game with just four minutes on the clock. Aleksandar Mitrovic missed an easy chance to equalize for the hosts but only managed to hit the upright. Harry Wilson missed the rebound to cap a disappointing day for the home side.
Fulham’s Marco Silva: “It was a frustrating evening for us, definitely. If you analyze the chances that they created and we created during the game, it was not a game for us to lose because we had two moments where we could score; they had the goal and I don’t remember anything more. But the overall performance was disappointing. We didn’t perform even close to where we should have a good evening, to win the game and enjoy what we were doing on the pitch.”
Sheffield United’s Paul Heckingbottom: “I could stand here and be critical and say we could have, should have been better with the ball, but having reflected on the game quickly and gone through it, there is no way we would have won a game like that a while ago. The players can be proud of the effort they put in. We limited them to very few chances – probably the only one was in injury-time when we got away with one when they hit the bar.”
