Manager Jol left to rue costly Riise error

Fulham manager Martin Jol bemoaned the error by John Arne Riise which led to Manchester City’s late winner at Craven Cottage.

Jol’s side, who took the lead through Mladen Petric’s early penalty, looked set to pick up a point before Edin Dzeko scored with three minutes remaining.

The striker pounced after a poor header from Riise, who was attempting to clear Gael Clichy’s left-wing cross.

“He will be disappointed because it was a mistake he made and it was punished,” said Jol.

“I feel if you work that hard, to concede a goal that late from your own mistake is frustrating. It was a bad clearance.

“The frustrating thing is that although they dominated possession, especially in the second half, their goals were pretty scrappy.”
