Fulham Manager Kit Symons reckoned Fulham were robbed of all three points by a 'blatantly' offside Charlton goal.

The Whites gaffer insisted the Adddicks' Frederic Bulot lurking in the centre put off keeper Marcus Bettinelli from picking up the ball, only to see it run through to Jonas Gudmundsson who poked it into the roof of the net for the equaliser.

Ross McCormack had given Fulham the lead with a looping header, and all things considered, a point and 1-1 was welcome after a 4-1 mauling at home to Brentford on Friday.

Symons said: "Their goal was blatantly offside. The bloke in the middle was inches from touching it, and it stopped our keeper from picking it up.

"But the ref's made a mistake. It was an honest mistake, but a mistake nonetheless.

"There was a lot of endeavour out there. Matt Smith was out on his feet at the end when he put it over the bar in the final seconds. Normally, he's good with his right foot.

"But any point at this time of the season is welcome, but we're not out of danger yet, and there's work still to be done."

Symons made light of five changes in the side from the Bees sting, saying only he needed a side to get a result.

"I pick a side to win," he added. "I tried that on Friday as well, but it didn't work out."
