Speaking to the BBC’s cameras a short time after match day referee Paul Tierney blew the final whistle, Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic explained.

‘This is the Championship and it has not been easy for us. We have to be satisfied with the week we have had. We are fighting without the ball. They sent in many long balls, they are bigger and stronger in those situations. We don’t have the tools to find the solution to these problems. But the team suffered together and got a clean sheet. In the end, it is our third game of this week, without a few important players, so we must be satisfied.’

Sunderland manager Simon Coleman in his comparitive interview explained.

‘We got punished by a harsh refereeing decision, the player has conned him into giving it. What helps the referee give it is Macca is the wrong side of their player, the contact is minimal and the player throws himself at an angle to highlight the contact. The player has done well to force the referee to give it.’
