Jol happy with Alex Kacaniklic winning Fulham debut

Fulham boss Martin Jol was pleased with the performance of Alex Kacaniklic on debut in victory over Norwich City.

The former Liverpool junior was a first-half substitute for an injured Pavel Pogrebnyak.

"Pavel is a number nine and the only other player I have there is a very young player in [Marcello] Trotta," said Jol.

"I had to make a decision and put [Clint] Dempsey up front and give Alex his debut.

"I think he did well but it would have helped if he had scored the third one [when he hit the bar four minutes into the second half]."
