LVC: Empty Feeling

Wednesday 13 January 2016 10:00

Lasse Vigen Christensen was disappointed his first goal of the season proved to be in vain at Molineux on Tuesday night.

Wolverhampton Wanderers had stormed into an early 2-0 lead through Michal Zyro’s double, before the Dane reduced the arrears with a pinpoint header from Jazz Richards’ cross.

But a stunning 35 yarder from full-back Matt Doherty restored the home side’s two-goal advantage shortly after the restart, and although Ross McCormack hit back with a fine strike of his own, Fulham were unable to force the equaliser that they perhaps deserved.

“It’s a bit of an empty feeling now because obviously it would have been nice to get that goal and make it count, but we didn’t,” Christensen told the official website.

“Right now it’s not really about me thinking whether I’m doing well or not, we need to get back to winning games. It’s the same old thing isn’t it, we play well but still don’t take anything away from the game.”

The Whites began the match brightly and caused problems in the Wolves box at 0-0 without managing to get their shots away, something that Zyro didn’t have any problem with soon after.

“As a team we need to be more clinical in both boxes really,” Christensen admitted. “We started off really well and felt like we were kind of getting the upper hand in the game right from the start, but then we let in two goals in such a short time and we gave ourselves a lot to do.

“Even though we got back in it, especially in the second half when we had some good periods on the ball, we just can’t seem to get in front and see games out from there.

“We’re always just a little bit behind at the minute and that’s something we need to sort out.”

The result represented a third consecutive defeat by a solitary goal under Slaviša Jokanović, despite Fulham matching their opponents throughout the majority of those encounters.

And while Christensen acknowledged that it will take time to get used to the Head Coach’s approach, he believes the team are showing signs that they’re adopting his philosophies.

“We’re still trying to fully understand and adapt to the way he wants to play,” he said. “I think we’ve seen some of the offensive link-up play and some of the bright build-up in and around the box.

“We saw some of the pressure as well when we lose the ball, but Wolves punished us for it by a few long balls so there’s obviously still something we need to work on there.

“There’s still a few positives to take, but at the end of the day we can’t really be too happy with just doing well in patches at the minute. We need to win games and get points.”
