Fulham fortunate to get a point in 0 - 0 match at Bolton

Roy Hogdson is probably very happy to leave Bolton with a point. Fulham and Bolton ended the game 0 - 0 at Reebok Stadium. Fulham were given a blow before the game as Bobby Zamora was out in today's match. On the broadcast they mentioned that Zamora was out with a sickness. I am sure there will be more news on Zamora later this week.

In the first half there were not many chances by either team. However, Bolton had a good chance for a goal. Mark Davies took a shot that was deflected off the goal by Mark Schwarzer. The first half ended 0 - 0.

In the second half, Bolton seemed to control the ball better than Fulham. Late in the game in the Johan Elmander of Bolton had a good shot that missed. In the last minute before stoppage time off of a corner kick, Kevin Davies of Bolton headed the ball into the net by Mark Schwarzer. The goal was not allowed as Davies was pushing off. Honestly, Fulham were very fortunate for the foul as Schwarzer was clearly beat. The game ended 0 - 0.

On the positive for Fulham, Nicky Shorey really seemed to push the ball up and was solid on defense. It was great to see Dickson Ethuhu come back in as a substitute. He will be a big help in the midfield The final moves were Stefano Okaka and Chris Smalling as substitutes late in the game. Chris Smalling actually came on as a striker. Okaka I thought had a very nice run late in the game.

Again, it is good to get a point and come back home for the next match against Burnley. It should be interesting to see who will be the strikers starting in this upcoming match.
