Rs nearly made a late, great comeback in west London derby against Cottagers

Queens Park Rangers’ late onslaught in their loss to Fulham in the Championship on Friday had Cottagers boss Slavisa Jokanovic breathing a sigh of relief at the final whistle.

With the Rs trailing 2-0 heading into nine minutes of stoppage time, Conor Washington struck in the second minute of time added on to set up a grandstand finish.

Sadly, no second QPR goal was forthcoming as the Cottagers claimed all three points at Loftus Road.

The hosts’ late charge, though, had Jokanovic worried and the Fulham boss was pleased to survive the pressure from QPR at the death.

“I’m always happy, especially when we win a west London derby,” Jokanovic told the Fulham website. “I am happy for the supporters, too. I believe we deserved it.

“At the end we suffered when QPR were in our territory and they started to push us in the box with many players.

“I must be satisfied because we survived this complicated moment. We suffered after their goal, but fortunately we defended well and won the game.”
