Jol happy to bring new year in with bang

Published Add your comment

Fulham manager Martin Jol saluted his side's performance in winning 2-1 at West Brom after New Year's Eve fireworks had disrupted their preparations.

The Cottagers were housed in a hotel in the middle of Birmingham and were kept awake by the celebrations which heralded the start of 2013 but there was nothing sleepy about Fulham's performance as goals from man of the match Dimitar Berbatov and Alexander Kacaniklic ensured a second win in the last 13 games.

"Probably the best fireworks were yesterday at 12 o'clock in front of my hotel!" Jol said. "That was annoying. I said we needed a quiet hotel and it was unbelievable. There were 2,000 people in front of my window!"
