Fulham's Riise rues missed chances

Fulham defender John Arne Riise echoed his manager Martin Jol in ruing two missed chances against Chelsea on Wednesday, but insists he is happy with a point after a creditable 0-0 draw.

Riise probably had the two best chances of the game: once when he latched onto a Giorgos Karagounis pass only for Petr Cech to smother the opportunity; next when he stung the goalkeeper's hands with a long-shot.

"I should have scored at least one, but I had a bad first control and the second one was a deflection and a great save by Petr," he said. "So we could've won it but we're happy with a point.

"With that first chance I think I ran about 90 yards so I was quite tired by the end! I tried to chest it down to take the shot but the control was too close to my body and I couldn't get a shot off, so I was disappointed."

Riise, however, was much happier with the team's work at the other end.

"It was a great team performance. We showed character and worked hard for each other and we're really pleased with how we played the game," he added. "We knew that they have some great players up front; technical players who like to see a pass that nobody else can see, so we needed to be compact. The back four worked really hard, the midfield worked really hard and also the guys up front, so it was a great performance.

"We stuck together and we knew they were going to try and get some crosses in. But we worked hard and made so many blocks, it was unbelievable. They had shots from 20 yards and five yards but we blocked every single one so, as a team, we were happy and I think the gaffer was happy as well."
