However, Kelly also highlighted what Danny Wilson stated and the travelling Town fans also noted which was the Robins lacked ideas up front – Kelly said that ‘there was never anything too clear cut for them and everything we did was very on the ball, professional and sharp.’
Meanwhile, Fulham boss Roy Hodgson singled out defender Chris Smalling’s performance in his post-match notes on Fulham’s official website, Hodgson said that the ‘game suited [Smalling] because they passed the ball well enough but it was only a matter of time before they hit the ball long to Paynter – so it is the type of game that we expect him to do well at.
The veteran manager continued to praise his side especially his attacking minded players by concluded the interview by stating that ‘in the second half some of our play was as good as it gets.’
