Fulham manager Peter Grant believes that the club should improve a lot in terms of defence of strength in order to start picking up positive results. After being recently appointed as the replacement for Kit Symons, Grant saw his team get a 1-1 draw against Preston North End. This was not exactly a result that will see them rise up the table.
The club are in desperate need of a return to the Premier League in order to shore up their finances. Following their relegation to the Championship, the club need to receive a decent amount of television money, which is only possible if they are in the Premier League, in order to retain their star names.
Grant has been appointed on a caretaker basis, which means that he has to get a good set of results in order to make the case for a permanent position at the club. The club are yet to get their first victory underGrant, which is disappointing given that they have been able to stop the rot in recent weeks. Fulham had the opportunity to improve your home form since they were up against Preston at Craven Cottage. However, the opposition took the lead through Garner in the 11th minute. Fulham were unable to get back into the match until the equaliser from McCormack in the 77th minute.
“It is there for everyone to see. We’ve scored a lot of goals, the most in the division. That tells you the quality we do have.They have got to show that quality without the ball. They need to be organised at all times. They need to be guided.I’m watching certain games and it looks as though we’re playing two at the back. They’ve got to realise we need a balance in the team,” said Grant.
