Kit Symons stumped by Fulham’s 2-0 victory at Huddersfield Town

23 March 2015

Kit Symons described Fulham's 2-0 Sky Bet Championship victory at Huddersfield Town as "probably the most bizarre game I have ever been involved in".

Nahki Wells missed two penalties and he and Jacob Butterfield hit the post as Huddersfield did everything but score. Alex Kacaniklic gave Fulham the lead straight from a corner after just 66 seconds but Huddersfield were on top from then on.

There was chaos around the hour mark when Fulham skipper Shaun Hutchinson handled on the line to keep out Ishmael Miller's shot - only for referee Richard Clark to mistakenly brandish the red card at Cauley Woodrow.

Fulham players protested and Clark consulted his assistant and changed his mind, correctly sending off Hutchinson instead.

Fulham, who also hit the woodwork through Woodrow, only made the points safe in the sixth minute of stoppage time when sub Seko Fofana broke clear and slotted home the rebound after his first effort came back off the post.

Symons said: "It was probably the most bizarre game I have ever been involved in. Against Leeds on Wednesday we played 10 times better, had 28 shots, but were on the wrong end of a 3-0 scoreline.

"In this one we scored at the beginning and at the end and in between Huddersfield were by far the better side.

"Marcus made some great saves and we had some good defending and some poor defending. We had a man sent off - the wrong one to start with - and the six minutes at the end felt like an eternity.

"But the important thing is we got there by hook or by crook and showed real character. When you do that you sometimes get all the luck, and we've not had much of that lately."​
