Bowyer on point at Fulham, Conor Gallagher, Macauley Bonne and Jake Forster-Caskey

Lee Bowyer was proud of his team after they secured an impressive away point at promotion contenders Fulham.

Below are some of the talking points from his post match interview.

Lee Bowyer's post match interview will be available on Valley Pass shortly.

On the result…

“I’m happy, it’s a good point to come here against a Premier League side. Their squad is full of Premier League players. To come here and get a point is a good result but I think we deserved more. I think we were better first half than they were, then they changed their shape. Scotty [Parker, Fulham Manager] mentioned that they never change their shape, he’s done it, Leeds did it last week – it’s a credit to what we are doing. 

“Again the lads should be so proud, they gave me everything. I said to them ‘I’m getting bored of saying it but I’m so proud of you’. It’s unreal, they keep going and going and going. Once Fulham equalised, we went and got another; that’s character and spirit. I love them, they are a great bunch.”

On the opening goal…

“Jake’s [Forster-Caskey] came in and what a pass, he’s picked out Solly and for Solly, a defender, had great awareness to cushion it for Conor and Conor just does what he’s been doing, arriving late in the box with a great finish because that’s a tough finish that when it bounces in front of you. The most important thing there is to keep it down and he did that, the keeper had no chance.”

On the second Chartlon goal…

“Macca, I’m delighted for him to get his goal today. He’s starting against Fulham, up top on his own for the first time. We never play one up top but we had to change things because we played Wednesday and we had no other subs, we lost Chuks yesterday (through injury). It was a great header, he works so hard, he deserved that goal today.”

On Jake Forster-Caskey, who started the game at left wing back… 

“I thought the role suited him. He’s naturally going to get forward, he’s got great delivery, he’s got a lovely left foot. He played against Blackburn at the beginning of the season but he’s obviously been out of it and thankfully he’s been around to step in today and to put in a performance like that is a credit to himself.”
