Fulham striker Mladen Petric insists that he is fine after picking up a knock against Sunderland.

The frontman was withdrawn from action with a mystery injury following his strike.

“I got a kick on my calf when I scored,” he explained. “It made a cut so I had to come off to have stitches put in and then by the time I got back on the pitch it was 2-1. It was a bit painful but I had injections so it was okay.

“I think we tried very hard and we always believed we had it in us to get back in the game. We kept putting pressure on Sunderland and we had some good opportunities again to score but unfortunately we just couldn’t find the net again.”
