Martin Jol: "We deserved to get something"

Fulham boss Martin Jol feels that his side "deserved" to get something from their Premier League clash with Arsenal at Craven Cottage.

Fulham manager Martin Jol feels that his side deserved to get at least a point from their game with Arsenal.

The Cottagers were reduced to 10 men early in the match when Steve Sidwell was sent off for a challenge on Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker scored the only goal of the contest in a win for the Gunners.

Jol told the club's official website: "If you saw us in the last 10 minutes, we substituted people and tried to get something out of the game and I think we deserved to get something out of it.

"Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa have got a big hill to climb but that is not what we want [to rely on]. We want to pick up a few results and get near to 50 points.

"Of course it's a heavy schedule and after today's result it will probably be difficult to get these points."

Fulham are 11th in the Premier League, nine points clear of the relegation zone.
