Fulham Coach Slavisa Jokanovic insists Fulham will continue to play out from the back as they always have done, despite their poor run of form.

The Cottagers head to Molineux on tonight having not won a single game in October, drawing two home games with Preston and Bolton, losing to Bristol City while losing an away tie at Aston Villa and face a Wolves side who are enjoying a fine season and are perched at the top of the table.

Jokanovic's side haven't kept a clean sheet since August and the 2-0 win over Ipswich, but the manager doesn't think playing out from the back is the root of his side's defensive issues and instead has pointed to basic mistakes that are letting Fulham down.

He said: “This is problem we didn't find enough solution for, we conceded so many easy goals.

“We build from the back and arrive in the box doesn't give us enough benefit, some people have an opinion about taking the risk and playing from the back, I don’t remember the last goal conceded from taking these risks and lost the ball in our build up.

"At the end, I like where we start to build up and where opposite teams start to press us, this is the reason we start from the back.

"My message is to try take this press and attack three defenders with 50 yards behind them, this is the point.

"All the people try choose some solution, we can try modify and find a better solution to something that is not working good or if you have the sensation it's better to try another way without depth, it doesn't exist any shape or tacti.

"If you make some mistake like we make, you have not got enough solidarity or be solid and clinical in important moments in the game.

"I say before, we must go back to basic things and start to find better distance, better body shape, try be more competitive and make basic thing like be more solid and put yourself behind ball and don't make small mistakes.

"Many small mistakes bring you into a situation where it's complicated to be competitive."
