Point well deserved

Thursday 13 December 2001

Fulham midfielder John Collins believes his side fully deserved their hard earned point on Wednesday at Anfield.

Talking after the match he said:

"It was a hard fought game, but we've come a long way and tonight that showed. We worked for each other and rode our luck a little at the end of the first half.

"We changed things around a bit for the second half and it worked. Liverpool are a great side and to come away with a point is a very good result for us.

Fulham have now gone eight games without defeat in the Premiership and despite dropping down a place in the table Collins was delighted to have added another point to the Cottagers impressive tally.

"First thing is to make sure we stay in this league. But I think everyone knows that we have set our sight's a little higher than that. Maybe after tonight people will start to believe.

"With a little bit more luck in front of goal we might have even sneaked it at the end."
