'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Coleman pleased with comeback

Fulham boss Chris Coleman was happy with the way his side fought back from 2-0 down to take the lead over Watford. The match finished all-square following Ashley Young`s late strike.

"At two-nil down we were trying to do what Watford are good at, which is knocking long balls and pressing - very much route one," said Coleman. "We`re not good at that, but we decided to mirror them."

However, it could be argued that the Cottagers were good a lumping the ball forward as, unlike Watford, every time they did so they managed to score.

Nevertheless, Coleman`s half-time plan to play football was foiled by Ashley Young`s goal which came just seconds after the re-start: "We had a chat at half time, we had to get the ball down and start playing. But then within 60 seconds it`s two-nil. To be fair to our guys, they stuck at it and kept going."

"At three-two I was thinking, 'fantastic, job done,` but it was a great finish by Young. It was disappointing because we worked so hard and showed a lot of courage to get back into the game, continued the former Wales international.

"We worked on set pieces for most of the week because Watford are very organised at set pieces and long throws. So it was disappointing to concede a goal like that. But hats off to Watford, they didn`t give up, they came straight back."
