STEVE Sidwell admits that elusive first win is affecting Fulham’s form.
The defensive midfielder (pic) and his team-mates huffed and puffed throughout a barren second half against Blackburn – but failed to add to Bobby Zamora’s curling low strike to leave the club with no victories out of four and in the bottom three.
The Whites camped in the Blackburn half in the second 45 minutes. But apart from Clint Dempsey’s late shot from distance, rarely troubled visiting keeper Paul Robinson.
Sidwell was a frustrated man having to settle for a 1-1 draw after Rovers took the lead through Ruben Rochina.
“We waited for the game to come to us early on – but after Bobby scored we took the game to them,” he said.
“In the second half we dominated, but results breed confidence.
“So far, in some games we’ve performed bad and lost, and others we’ve performed well and still lost.
“Once that elusive win comes it will change.
“But one of the best teams in the world would find it hard to break two banks of four – and nine behind the ball like today.”
