Slavisa Jokanovic comments on Lewis Cook goal, says Fulham played better football than Leeds United

A wondergoal from Lewis Cook earned Leeds United a share of the spoils.

Leeds United took on Fulham last night and in the end both teams were probably content with taking a point apiece from a decent battle between the two teams.

Fulham had taken the lead when former Leeds youth team player Tom Cairney had slotted home the opener.

However it was then Lewis Cook who stole the headlines. He smashed home an unstoppable drive from 35-yards to leave Andy Lonergan sprawling in the Fulham goal.

It was his first goal at Elland Road as a Leeds player and Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic conceded the goal was fantastic, but believed Fulham deserved to win the game.

He was quoted as telling West London Sport:

“I think we made enough chances to win this game but this is football and sometimes it happens.

“We created many chances. They scored a fantastic goal. In the end, in my opinion we played better football than Leeds and we were closer to winning the three points."

However he went on to make it clear that Leeds equally deserved a draw, as they fought hard for the result:

“Leeds were fighting very well and put us under pressure. They are fighting and deserve this point too."

The two teams are both currently at the wrong end of the table but look safe in 17th and 18th place. The bottom three of Rotherham United, Bolton Wanderers and Charlton Athletic look to be out of the race for survival, well off the pace in regards to points.
