Jol impressed by Fulham new boys

24 August 2013 18:13

Fulham manager Martin Jol praised new signings Darren Bent and Scott Parker despite a 3-1 loss to Arsenal on Saturday.

Parker was dogged in the midfield, just four days after arriving from Tottenham, while Aston Villa loanee Bent scored a consolatory goal for the home side in the 77th minute.

However, the hosts had already conceded three goals by that point, with Lukas Podolski netting a brace to add to Olivier Giroud's early effort.

Though the result was not ideal for Jol's men, he was impressed with the debut pair, while hinting he will look to make further signings before the window closes.

He said: "That (Bent's goal) is what we needed but of course we want to win games, and if he scores his goals we want to win games and today he scored a goal and we lost 3-1 and that is not what you want.

"I thought Scott was one of the better players on the park, on the ball, so that is what we needed, we needed someone who can control the game and I think he did that.

"I think we played well, I can’t say that we played particularly bad, the only thing is in the final third we need a bit more quality, cutting edge, we need a fine tuning in the box."

Jol's men will next pit themselves against Burton Albion in the League Cup on Tuesday, before continuing their league campaign against Newcastle next week.
