Jol watched his side draw a blank at Werder Bremen as Nils Petersen's 55th-minute goal gave the German side victory on Sunday.

Maarten Stekelenburg kept the scoreline down with a series of saves, and the manager afterwards conceded Fulham desperately need to add more quality to their attacking game.

He told the club website: "We need pace and a little bit of quality. Berbatov was good, but he can't do everything and we needed to get in behind.

"We will try to get someone up front. We need a few more goals. Since Clint Dempsey left we do not have enough goals in us, so we are working every day to get someone in.

"We have some high-quality players in consideration and we would like another midfielder as well."

The need for reinforcements has become more urgent still given Alex Kacaniklic suffered a hamstring injury in Bremen.

Jol said: "He may be out for a couple of weeks. That is not what you want from pre-season."

There was some cheer for Jol in the promising performance of Mesca Na Bangna, who was twice close after coming on as a substitute.

"Mesca came on and looked good," he said. "He was probably our best player on the day even though he has only played with us twice. That was positive."

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
