Slaviša Jokanović was “disappointed” that his side couldn’t find the cutting edge in the opposition box, as Fulham lost 1-0 to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
The sides went into the break level at 0-0, but the substitute Josh Maja scored on his debut, netting the game’s lone goal in the 77th minute.
“We are disappointed,” the Head Coach admitted. “We made enough chances to come back and bring something home, but we weren’t clinical in the Sunderland box. We paid an expensive price for one big mistake.
“We wanted to score first, and we showed clear intentions about how we wanted to do it. We came here to win the game, to push hard to get the three points, but we didn’t show enough quality.
“We had control of the game. We tried to equalize, we tried to win the game, we played it around well, but in the end we made one big mistake where they scored the goal and we didn’t concentrate enough in the moments we created. This was a really disappointing situation for us.
“We tried to find our standard, we tried to dominate the game. We dominated many minutes and created many chances, but we could not finish these chances. When we don’t finish our chances, this kind of situation can happen.
The Whites had several chances on goal, but, despite their best efforts, weren’t able to find the equalizer.
“We hit the target enough times to score a goal, but this is not the first time this type of situation has happened this season.
“This is not about is it fair or is it unfair, or if we deserved it or didn’t deserve it. We made enough chances to win the game today, but in the end the result is like this, and in the end we must find a solution.”
