Coleman cites Fulham desire
Fulham boss Chris Coleman
Fulham boss Chris Coleman pin-pointed his side's increased appetite as the reason for their first win in five league games as they beat Leeds.

"We showed a lot more desire and a lot of commitment," said Coleman.

"We made a couple of chances in the first half and a lot in second. It was only a matter of time until we scored."

Coleman was back in the dug-out after a blood infection and added: "I'm not 100% yet but I'm sure I'll be back to normal in two or three weeks."

Coleman continued: "I go back to see the surgeon on Monday to check everything's ticking over nicely.

"There have been a lot of rumours about me being on my death bed. But it wasn't as serious as people said - I was never in intensive care and just had a bad infection."

He added: "The best I've felt for two weeks was at 3pm today, when the adrenalin was pumping.

"The doctors said I had to stay relaxed but I couldn't do it. I explained to them it'd be impossible for that to happen."
