Leaders Fulham was held by Blackpool in one of the close football results of the weekend in the Championship. Aleksandar Mitrovic opened the scoring for the hosts in the sixth minute before Josh Bowler grabbed a share of the points in the 57th minute. The game was stopped in the 41st minute as a supporter received medical treatment. The draw was a surprise as the hosts won their last four games while scoring 22 goals in the process.

Managers Reaction 

Fulham’s Marco Silva: “The result was not good. It was a disappointing result. We didn’t start well, we started brilliantly – in the first 11 minutes against a team who changed everything to face us. We scored a really good goal and had great chances to score the second. Then, unfortunately, we had the break and it was a really serious situation, so all our thoughts are with our friend. After we came back, we expected some changes because we’d controlled things so well. We were too slow in the second half and when you play slowly, you give some believed to the opposition.”

Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “I thought he [Bowler] was outstanding. You could see the respect they had for him. He nearly scored in the first half, a good finish for the goal. He’s been brilliant for us. Let’s see what happens. He’s our player, we’re delighted to have him and we know how good he is and we know his worth. We want to be a club that gives young players an opportunity and develops them and if they then have the opportunity to move on and it’s the right time to move on and it’s right for the club then we want to be that club.”
