Fulham boss Jol: Pogrebnyak took pressure off me

Fulham boss Martin Jol admits Pavel Pogrebnyak's goal scoring debut has taken some pressure off him after the sale of Bobby Zamora.

The on-loan Russian striker struck in victory over Stoke City.

"Bobby was 31, he wanted to go," said Jol. "He told us he wanted to leave more than once. We made the decision to let him go for that money. Bobby scored in his first game for QPR and so you get a different feeling. So it was good that Pavel scored."
