Fulham boss Kit Symons admits he may look to add fresh meat to his squad as they failed to impress against Wolves on Tuesday night

Despite being a close game until Tom Cairney was rightly sent off for a two-footed lunge, Fulham struggled with ten men and fell to a 3-0 defeat at Craven Cottage.

In the second half Sheyi Ojo's shot squirmed through the grasp of goalkeeper Andy Lonergan after Adam Le Fondre glanced home his curling effort minutes earlier, with James Henry adding gloss to the scoreline with a fine free-kick.

Fulham were a shadow of the side that so impressively beat QPR in Friday's west London derby, but manager Symons was philosophical on the loss.

"That's sometimes how it goes in football," the Fulham boss said.

"When it's not your night, it's not your night.

You've got to take it on the chin. "It is disappointing and hard to take, but it happens sometimes.

"Friday was a great night for us and I could sympathise and had empathy towards what Chris (Ramsey, QPR manager) and what he went through.

"Obviously the sending off changed it massively.

It was always going to be hard to play at the levels that we did on Friday night, but we were doing okay in the first half, a bit too open but we were very much in it."

In the build-up to the match, Fulham announced James Husband's loan from Middlesbrough had been extended by an unspecified length and Symons indicated they may dip into the loan market again.

"We are constantly looking," he added. "There's always that temptation."
