Magath confident Fulham can 'make it good'

Fulham manager Felix Magath is still holding onto hope that the London club can survive in the Premier League.

The Cottagers were beaten 3-1 at home by Everton on Sunday which has them six points from safety with just six fixtures remaining.

Magath felt his side performed well at Craven Cottage but were simply unable to hit the back of the net again after Ashkan Dejagah cancelled out David Stockdale's 51st-minute own-goal.

Late goals from Steven Naismith and Kevin Mirallas gave Everton all three points but Magath was not getting disheartened by a fourth loss in five matches.

"We put in a good performance today, we have created a lot of chances and unfortunately we didn't make the goals," he told Sky Sports.

"First half we had some chances to score, but after the equaliser also - two, three chances to score. If you don't score, it happens all the time that you then concede a goal.

"We are all very disappointed with how it is going on. But I think if we go on and play as good as we did today, we will see.

"We have played a game today against a very good team and Everton was going on to go forward in the table and maybe fight for fourth place, so it was a good game.

"I think that if we can take this performance with us and we go on, we will make it good."
