Fulham manager Kit Symons happy to settle for a point at Charlton Athletic

8 April 2015

Fulham boss Kit Symons was pleased to earn another crucial point in his side’s bid to remain in the Sky Bet Championship next season.

The Cottagers drew 1-1 at Charlton Athletic on Tuesday evening, a result that takes them eight points clear of Millwall in the first of the relegation places, with five games to go.

“Points in this division, especially at this stage of the season where we are, are important,” he said.

“I’d say it was a good point, although I’d have liked all three. But I think you take what you can at this moment in time.

"It was a hard-fought, well-earned point. Although, we deserved all three, as their goal was blatantly offside; it was a horrific decision and it cost us dearly.

“We were the team pushing. We had double their shots – I think they had one shot on target in the game – but couldn’t quite get that second goal. There was a lot of endeavour and hard work and Matty Smith was out on his feet at the end when he put that right-foot effort over the bar.

"We had a few other chances as well but I can’t be greedy, we’ll take a point at this stage of the season."

Fulham's Championship destiny remains in their own hands, with three of their last five fixtures coming against teams below them in the division - Wigan Athletic, Rotherham United and Blackpool.
