Scott Parker admitted it was 'a bad day' against Fulham - but insisted we have to stay positive.

Disappointment, but we stay positive - Scott

Dimitar Berbatov’s goal in the 52nd minute consigned us to a first home defeat in all competitions since November.

It was a match where we struggled to get going - Scott conceded 'everything was a bit flat’ - but we could have rescued something only for Jermain Defoe to be denied twice by Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, the second from point-blank range in the last minute.

“We’re all disappointed,” said Scott. “You don’t want to make excuses but we just a looked a bit flat.

"Having said that, I don’t think we deserved to lose the game. They hit us on the break and scored a goal, so it was difficult. Mark Schwarzer then produced an unbelievable save at the end. It was one of those days for us.

"We need to stay positive now, that’s the main thing.

"I’ve always said that you can’t mope around in these situations. Okay, it was a bad result, but we need to look forward now.

"It’s not ideal how it went and everyone’s frustrated, us, the fans, but we’re still in a good position and we need to keep going."
