Fulham fullback Matthew Briggs says there were plenty of positives to take from their defeat at Manchester United.

Briggs, who replaced the injured John Arne Riise, admits the Team were devastated to leave Manchester empty handed.

"We're all gutted to come away with nothing considering the chances we had," Briggsy told fulhamfc.com after the game. "We conceded some sloppy goals in the first half but I thought we came back well in the second half.

"We're a strong-minded Team and obviously while we didn't play too well in the first half, we came out much stronger in the second period.

"We've got a lot of quality in our Team and we know we're capable of scoring goals. Maybe there could have been an improvement in our finishing today but you can't fault our attitude."
