How Fulham boss Scott Parker responded to Aleksandar Mitrovic’s challenge against Leeds United

Fulham chief Scott Parker said he had not seen Aleksandar Mitrovic’s elbow on Leeds United’s Ben White as a “problem during the game”.

The Serbian striker was lucky to escape a red card in the second minute of Saturday’s clash on Elland Road.

Mitrovic jabbed White in the face in an incident referee Tony Harrington missed, although he will likely have to be punished afterwards.

When asked about the incident after the game, Parker said, “I haven’t seen it at the moment, to be honest.

“I didn’t really see it as a problem during the game, but I didn’t see it again, so it would be unfair for me to really comment on that.”

Leeds would of course win the game 3-0 and further strengthen his hopes of winning the title and promotion to the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Fulham’s own promotion hopes were dealt a heavy blow after he was also beaten by Brentford last week.

Parker added: “I think it will be difficult.

“I don’t think that can be denied.

“Of course we came here today and I said before that we can narrow this gap to four points and open this division. That is not the case.

“I think you’ve seen over two or three games played in this division in this current climate that there will be some shocks along the way, and I have no doubt that there will be more, but our main games The focus is on winning games.

“We have one challenge ahead of us and there have been many challenges we have faced this year and we are now facing another one.
