Fulham manager Kit Symons felt that his team should have been given all three points in the recent encounter against Charlton Athletic. The match finished as a 1-1 draw with all of the goals coming inside the 20 minutes of the first half. Ross McCormack opened the scoring after just eight minutes on the clock but Charlton were level not too long after that goal.
Gudmundsson scored after just eight minutes but Symons says that Charlton should have been penalised for offside. The player was not directly outside, but Frederic Bulot was impeding play from an offside position.
The draw does not have major consequences for the Fulham team, who are looking like being capable of avoiding the drop this campaign. A second relegation appeared to be on the cards when Symons took charge of the club in September 2014, with many fans reportedly turning to golf betting (Link for online betting for UK customers) instead?!
He has since been able to get a couple of victories every now and then to keep the club a healthy eight points away from relegation with five matches remaining. Even though Millwall, who occupy the final relegation spot, have a game in hand, the club feel that there is enough gap between them and the relegation zone. Still, a win against Charlton would have confirmed a place in the Championship next season.
“It’s a good point for us but I thought we deserved all three” he told the bet online (Link for online betting for non-UK customers) website. “Their goal was blatantly offside, it was a horrific decision and it’s cost us dearly for the three points. Their player stopped our keeper picking it up so he is interfering with play. I think he was out on his feet when he put that one over the bar. But we can’t be greedy, we’ll take a point at this stage of the season. We are not safe until we are mathematically safe,” said Symons.
