Hangeland admits Fulham frustration

Fulham defender Brede Hangeland couldn't hide his disappointment after his side drew 1-1 with Blackburn yesterday.

The Norwegian international was one of the few players to impress in a scrappy match between two of the Barclays Premier League's bottom sides, with neither side yet to record a victory in the division.

Hangeland felt the Cottagers came closest to doing that on Sunday though, and is hoping the team's luck can quickly change for the better.

"I'm extremely disappointed. We dominated completely and should have won. We just lacked a bit of skill and luck," he told SkySports post-match.

"We feel confident here (Craven Cottage) and have had great results here over the years.

"It's too early in the season for us to start looking at the table."

Ruben Rochina had opened the score for the visitors before Bobby Zamora's equaliser, and in-truth it was the hosts who looked more likely to win the game in the later stages.


However, Martin Jol's side were unable to take advantage, leaving the Dutchman frustrated about his side's lack of cutting edge.

"It was frustrating. It was similar to the [goalless draw] against Villa, especially the second half. We deserved three points from that game and today it was probably the same," he said.

"We were a bit sloppy in midfield and everybody was bombing forward (in the first-half). And of course the style of this club is to try and play attractive football and in the second half that certainly happened.

"In the second half I can remember we had eight or nine crosses to the near post. They protected that well, but then we need to come up with good solutions.”
