The Cottagers surrendered their lead to be content with a point at home against Neo Warnock’s Boro to the midfielder’s dismay
Josh Onomah said Fulham should have drawn more than 1-1 from the English Championship against Middlesbrough on Sunday.
Despite the first score and the dominance of the ball possession, Marco Silva’s Cottagers shared points with the Boro who beat their only shot on goal.
In the early stages, the former English youth international of Nigerian descent, Onomah, hampered Ivan Carvalho, but Grant Hall’s departure took the poison out of the youngster’s lap and goalkeeper Joe Lumley was able to save cleverly.
A minute before half-time, debutant Harry Wilson led the hosts after drilling Onomah’s pass past Lumley.
Even in that, the visitors ensured that points were shared equally after Marc Bola took advantage of the help of Isaiah Jones to beat goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.
The 24-year-old was disappointed with the result at Craven Cottage in which he says his team should have emerged victorious.
“The one hurt,” Onomah said. Fulham website. ‘Allow me to dominate for so many periods in the game.
“We played electric football and created so many chances that we could get injured late.
‘But hopefully we will see that it is a point that is earned instead of two points being reduced.
‘We just have to see this game as a learning curve, analyze it during this week and see how we created chances, and the next step is to put the ball in the back of the net.
He also reserved special words for teammate Wilson who scored Fulham’s first goal.
“He came in and was sharp from day one,” he continued.
‘We know he has a wonderful left foot, and he showed it with his goal.
‘We have a little chemistry on the right, me and him, a good football concept.
“I look forward to playing a lot with him this season, and hopefully he will continue to achieve our goals.”
Fulham would claim their first win in the 2021-22 campaign when they take on Huddersfield Town at John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.
