Jol admits to relief after Fulham hold off QPR

Martin Jol admitted to feeling a sense of relief after Fulham held out QPR for a 3-2 win on Monday night.

The Cottagers got the jump on their London rivals by taking a three-goal lead after a brace from Dimitar Berbatov and own-goal from Clint Hill but the R's fought back through Adel Taarabt and Loic Remy.

It was almost a disaster for Fulham when Steve Sidwell was sent off ten minutes from time but the home side managed to hold out for a vital win much to the relief of manager Jol.

"It was a great game for the spectators," the Dutchman told Sky Sports.

"Overall it was a bit disappointing at 3-0 up and then you make it difficult for yourself.

"The Sidwell sending off I thought was a bit harsh, that was difficult for us. It was a bit unfortunate."

He added of his tenth-placed Cottagers: "Hopefully 39 will be enough, but it is tough you can still go down.

"Hopefully we can go a bit higher, but first we will celebrate the three points."
