Following a narrow 1-0 loss at the hands of Derby County on Friday evening Slavisa Jokanovic felt that the Whites deserved more from the encounter.

After a cagey start to the game with his side enjoying long stretches in possession the deadlock was broken when Cameron Jerome rose well to head in at the back post in the 34th minute.

Despite pressing hard for the equaliser in the second half, Fulham were unable to peg the hosts back and will now return home to Craven Cottage on Monday night with all to play for.

“Definitely this is not the result that we deserved,” Jokanovic said. “But this is part of football to and we cannot be frustrated.

“We played some nice football and dominated Derby.

“They scored after one cross and Jerome (Cameron) scored a fantastic goal.

“We were not clinical enough and especially in the second half when we created many chances without scoring the goal to get things level.

“We must not let ourselves get too frustrated and remain confident as we showed quality and had a good mentality.

“What we want to do is now change this story and win the game on Monday night and fight for the opportunity to play at Wembley.”

Returning home to the banks of the Thames looking to overcome the 1-0 deficit, Jokanovic insisted his Fulham side must find their ruthless cutting edge from the off and stick to their style.

“It's dangerous for us and it's dangerous for them to,” the Head Coach insisted. “We need to look forward and push to play our way.

“We need to be more clinical than we were today. We showed today that we can play good football but we didn’t score any goals.

“This is sometimes the way of football.

“I have to credit Derby as they caught us and took their chance very well.

“We must remain confident and trust we can change this story.”
