Analysis: Nottingham Forest 3-1 Fulham

Fulham disappointment at conceding goal

Inconsistent results have summed up Fulham's season so far, with big wins against Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal offset by disappointing losses to Bournemouth, Burnley and now Nottingham Forest.

After conceding two early goals in a nightmare first-half, boss Marco Silva made a triple substitution in only the 33rd minute, bringing on Willian, Tom Cairney and Adama Traore in an attempt to turn the game around.

For a spell it worked, but the visitors were unable to capitalise on a dominant period and eventually conceded a third goal in added time to cap off a miserable opening half.

They had to improve and did so as Tosin Adarabioyo scored early in the second period.

The visitors had opportunities to get back in the game as Willian's dipping effort was just off target and Rodrigo Muniz went close to extending his eight-goal tally in the Premier League.

Traore cannoned a late strike off the bar too, but Fulham failed to replicate the heroics that saw them overturn a two-goal deficit against Sheffield United and earn a point last time out in a 3-3 draw.

The Cottagers have lost three of their last nine league matches, but their away woes continue with just one win in their last 15 on the road.
