Fulham manager Kit Symons reckoned Fulham were the 'nearly' men at Burnley in a 3-1 defeat - but rued two sloppy bits of defending that ultimately produced a bridge too far for Whites to cross.

Whites were 2-0 down at half time, but the manager reminded his troops that was the case two weeks ago - and they still went on to beat Reading 4-2.

Not this time, as he explained.

"We were unlucky not to get anything from the game but we gave two very poor goals away in the first half," he said.

"Andre Gray had a free header and then a clean run through on goal.

"Other than those two lapses, I don't think Joe Lewis made a save first half.

"We gave ourselves a bit of a mountain to climb, but we nearly did it. We nearly got ourselves back into the game, we got a good goal from Ross (McCormack) and a few other opportunities, but things wouldn't quite fall for us."

Once the Scot had put Fulham back in the contest, they could have gone on to win, but the cards wouldn't fall for them.

Symons explained: "We rode our luck a little bit early on in the second half when Gray hit the bar, going through after another lapse from us, but we were on the front foot and I honestly thought we'd get something out of it.

"So I'm a bit disappointed in that respect, but very proud of my team.

"You lose games of football sometimes but if you're going to go down then go down with your boots on having a right go.

"I thought we were very brave, we really had a go, and if we had got something out of the game I don't think too many people could have complained," he said
