Fulham boss Sanchez happy with fightback

Fulham, the draw specialists of the Premiership, chalked up their seventh of the campaign with a 2-2 result at home to Blackburn.

A feature of the Cottagers season has been the inability to retain the lead, and twice they had their noses in front only for Blackburn to reply both times.

All the goals came in the second half beginning with Danny Murphy's penalty on 51 minutes. Rovers Australian international Brett Emerton equalised six minutes later but Diomansy Kamara, who had won the earlier penalty, restored the home sides advantage.

Before the game Fulham boss Lawrie Sanchez had been bemoaning how his team had conceded more late goals than any other Premier League outfit so it was no surprise that Blackburn defender Stephen Warnock should restore parity with eleven minutes remaining.

Sanchez claimed he was not disappointed to have twice conceded the lead.

"Blackburn are an excellent side. One day I would like to be in the same situation as them," he told Sky Sports.

"We are not getting beaten seven, six, five or four as teams are at the bottom," he added.

"We are getting undone by some good teams - Liverpool, Arsenal and Blackburn aren't bad sides.

"We are 12th in the table and there are eight other teams worse than us. We will be all right."
