Fulham boss Jol left frustrated with defeat at Southampton

Fulham boss Martin Jol was left unhappy after their defeat at Southampton.

Jol cut a frustrated figure after the match that saw their two-match winning streak come to a comprehensive end.

"The first half I really felt we could be on the end of a hammering today and to come away with a 0-0 in the second half is the only good thing," he said.

"It was disappointing, you know? We had a problem with Adam Lallana up front and the rotation with Jay Rodriguez and Rickie Lambert.

"But that had nothing to do with the goals. One goal was from a corner kick again and a cross with a flick on. That was disappointing.

"To come back into a game Southampton [will be hard] as you know they have only conceded three goals up until now, so it never easy.

"I thought after the first half we really had to repair the damage and that is what we tried to do with Aaron Hughes.

"That helped a bit because we couldn't defend well because Lallana drifted infield and Sascha Riether stayed out so we had a little problem defensively."
