Fulham boss Sanchez won't blame scattergun Dempsey

Fulham boss Lawrie Sanchez had no problem with Clint Dempsey's wayward finishing in yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Wigan.

Hoping to end his club's 19-match run without an away League win, USA international Dempsey fired four times from point-blank range. Although one of his efforts hit the target to open the scoring, the other three barely left his shooting boots with sufficient force or direction to trouble Chris Kirkland in Wigan's goal.

Sanchez said of Dempsey: "Clint will feel he should have had more goals today, but three goals in three games isn't bad, and these are his first real starts for us since coming here."
