Fulham 2 Hull 2: Felix Magath admits he is disappointed with their draw against the Tigers
Felix Magath admitted he is disappointed with a point after the Cottagers were pegged back by Hull City at Craven Cottage.
Fulham had surged into an early second-half lead thanks to goals from Ashkan Dejagah and Fernando Amorebieta.
We have lost two points we so have to win the next two games. We can do it
However, the Tigers struck back through Nikica Jelavic before Republic of Ireland striker Shane Long levelled with three minutes remaining.
It leaves Fulham two points adrift of safety, but Magath was still bullish that the Cottager can beat the drop.
“It’s not the result we wanted so we are disappointed. We were leading 2-0 so it seems we would get the three points but unfortunately we scored what was almost an own goal,” Magath told BBC Sport.
“After getting a goal they had some pressure and we took only one point.
“Besides the two goals we scored, we had two or three great chances to score again but we didn’t manage it.
“We have lost two points we so have to win the next two games. We can do it.”
Meanwhile, Hull manager Steve Bruce praised his side’s resilience against the west London side.
“In the second half they went for it with four up top and suddenly we were 2-0 down.
“But as usual we responded in the right way. It’s not often you come back from 2-0 down but if anyone will it’s this lot. We showed great resilience to get something out of it.
“We might be safe tomorrow when we look at those games.
“But it’s been a fantastic season, to be 13th in the division with three games to go and have a cup final to look forward to.”
