The gaffer admits Town need to be more ruthless in front of goal but felt the 3-0 scoreline flattered Fulham this afternoon

Mick McCarthy felt the scoreline perhaps flattered Fulham this afternoon, with Town denied on a number of occasions by Whites stopper Marcus Bettinelli.

The Blues lost 3-1 at Craven Cottage, with Christophe Berra's late strike in vain as Fulham were already 3-0 up thanks to goals from Floyd Ayite, Scott Malone and Stefan Johansen.

"I believe the scoreline flatters them and on another day we could have come away with something, but we've given away some soft goals today," the boss told the official Club website.

"We had our chances, certainly in the second-half and we spoke at half-time about how important the next goal would be.

"Unfortunately they got it, when they shouldn't have done and then the game is out of reach of us. We should have scored more today, we've certainly created enough chances.

"Slavisa [Jokanovic] will probably be delighted that he changed his goalkeeper because he's made some really good saves today.

"We've got two big games coming up against Burton and Newcastle and we will have to be more ruthless in front of goal if we want to get anything out of those two games. But we've performed well today."
