Fulham manager Kit Symons, who seems incapable of ending his team's inconsistent form, criticised his players for the "galling" way they failed to retain their two-goal lead against Charlton.

The Whites took the lead through Ryan Tunnicliffe in the first half as the midfielder fired home after Ross McCormack's shot was spilled by goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Tunnicliffe then turned provider as his pass played McCormack into the Charlton penalty box and the Scotsman fired home to give Fulham a comfortable lead. Synmons' men looked odds-on to take home the three points but a goal from substitute Johnnie Jackson and a last-gasp equaliser from Jordan Cousins ensured the points would be split.

"I'm incredibly disappointed," Symons said. "To be 2-0 up and dominant in the game and cruising to then throw it away is inexplicable.

"There's no excuse. We should have gone on and got a third and killed the game off.

We made poor decisions; don't take those chances when they come.

If that's the case you've got to do the job right at the other end.

"Two free headers: two points thrown away. Up to the last 10 minutes we never looked in any trouble whatsoever.

"Defining moments in games: the crowd were singing for Johnnie Jackson to come on about 15 minutes earlier.

He suddenly came on, made an impact, gave them a big lift.

They took advantage of that and we shot ourselves in the foot.

"Ryan Tunnicliffe was with him, let him have a free header. There was no confusion over who was marking him.

"Just do our job properly (and) we'll see the game out, so it's incredibly frustrating not to have won.

"We were so comfortable, it's really frustrating, really galling."
