Fulham boss Scott Parker insists his squad not suffering confidence crisis

Fulham boss Scott Parker insists his players aren't suffering a confidence crisis.

Since earning promotion to the Premier League in August, Fulham have failed to win any of their opening six matches and they have just one point so far.

“I don't think confidence is proving an issue," he said after defeat to Crystal Palace. “The dynamics of this division and what this division brings show we need to learn, and we need to pick up goals.

“You never want to concede goals. Today (last Saturday) for the first 15 minutes we showed pure domination.

"We lacked a real threat, but we had a control, the first time they go forward, they score. It was the same in the second half, we came out of the blocks well and then it's 2-0.

"We now have to dust ourselves down and we need to face up, keep working hard and hopefully we'll come out of the other side and I'm sure we will."
