Slaviša Jokanović believes Fulham put in their best performance of the season at Leeds United, despite coming away with their worst result of the campaign so far.

Tom Cairney’s stunning goal looked set to maintain the Whites’ 100 per cent record, but towering striker Chris Wood netted an acrobatic effort deep into stoppage time to earn his side a point.

“We’re unhappy after conceding a goal in extra-time, but my team played the best game of the beginning of the season,” Jokanović said in his post-match press conference. “We had everything under control, we created the chances.

“I can be satisfied with many, many, many things that my team showed today here in Leeds. These things can happen, the Championship is very famous for these last few minutes, and we paid an expensive price today.”

Fulham dominated the encounter in West Yorkshire, controlling possession and hitting the post twice, but the lack of a second goal ended up costing two points.

“We were unlucky and we’re a little bit frustrated and disappointed after this late goal that we’ve conceded,” Jokanović explained. “We didn’t score more goals during the game, and then at the end they score one typical Championship goal.

“One big centre-back touched the ball, another big striker then hits a bicycle kick to score the goal. We hit the woodwork two times and we weren’t lucky enough to score more goals.

“We had the game under control. We lost the control in one second in the last moment, but generally we’re driving the ship in the right direction. Generally I can be happy with how my team competed today, how my team played the game.”

Make sure you're at the Cottage as Fulham aim to keep the unbeaten run going against Cardiff City on Saturday.
