Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen remains confident of beating the drop.
Meulensteen drew positives from their defeat to Liverpool this week.
"You can see the improvement," said the head coach, whose side are without a win since New Year's Day.
"We just need to get that break, get those three points on the board and build from there.
"We played well, were well organised and, with the effort the boys put in, a defeat like this is very hard to take. We have to take it game by game now but the energy and spirit in the team is good and some of the displays last night were excellent."
