We need to kill games off says Carvalhal

Not for the first time this season, Wednesday were again left to reflect on what might have been in a 1-1 draw at Fulham.

Once again, we dominated for good periods of a game but failed to turn this superiority into goals and were caught out by a late equaliser.

Fernando Forestieri gave us an early lead when he finished off a typically slick passing move but our first-half domination did not yield a further breakthrough, Gary Hooper missing the best opportunity when he fired wide in a one-on-one with home keeper David Button.

Fulham caused more problems early in the second half, without seriously troubling Keiren Westwood, while Wednesday continued to threaten but lacked that killer instinct in the final third.

The home side stepped up their game in the final minutes and, after a couple of scares for the Wednesday defence, Fulham grabbed an injury time equaliser when Ross Wallace lost Scott Malone at the far post and the defender fired past Westwood.

Carlos Carvalhal said: “Our goalkeeper did not have too much defending to do and we created more of the chances. 

“But we have to kill games when we get the chance and that was the difference today.”

He added: “I am not happy with the result because I think we deserved more, but I am very happy with our performance.

“We played with personality and created chances.”
