Fulham Head Scott Parker stands defiant by his team, knowing they’ll give maximum effort and tenacity for the remainder of the season after a disappointing defeat to Leicester on Wednesday.

Two pieces of James Maddison quality unzipped Fulham in a game that lacked gilt-edged chances at Craven Cottage.

“I thought we huffed-and-puffed tonight,” he declared. “Their quality in the attacking third for their goals was evident. The detail in their counter attack with the decisions they made was excellent. We weren’t able to take our moments, not necessarily with shots, but little overloads.

“We fell a little bit short. We understand we need to start winning football matches - we’re at a stage where there is a clear focus. We move onto Saturday.”

The Head Coach knows there are many chapters left in the Premier League season and the fight continues to stay in the division.

“For large parts we had a control about us,” he continued. “We played some good stuff without causing them too many problems. People may say I’m mad, but I see a team that can win football matches. There are 17 games left this season, we’ve seen what a couple of results in a short space of time can do.

“Am I looking at a team that’s wilting to a slow death? Not at all. My team is fully committed to the job in hand.”

The 40-year-old called for the same endeavour that has earned his side many plaudits for the run-in to the end of the season.

“We need to win games now. We want to give ourselves a fighting chance to stay in this division. This team have progressed extremely well. We’ve gone from a team that was written off to a team that has worked on certain problems.

“When you’re newly-promoted, progression is what you need to work on. This is a great group of lads that are working their hardest. The way we win games is by putting in strong, confident performances. We can’t let defeats derail us.”
