Bolton looked more threatening than Fulham – Parkinson

Bolton boss Phil Parkinson urged his side to focus on the positives of their performance at Fulham after a 94th minute Tom Cairney goal denied them a first away win since promotion.

Sammy Ameobi’s first-half strike looked to have put Bolton on course for a rare victory, only for the returning Cairney to nod in deep into stoppage time.

Bolton have not won on the road in the Championship since April 2015 and Parkinson admitted: “I’m very disappointed that we haven’t got all three points.

“I felt the performance warranted it. The lads have given us absolutely everything.

“It was more than a battling performance. We had chances to get that second goal we knew we needed but we just couldn’t kill the game off.

“Our attacking players looked as threatening as theirs, if not more at times – Ameobi and [Adam] Armstrong in particular.

“There’s an air of disappointment in the dressing room but we’ve got to make sure that late goal doesn’t knock us.”
