Fulham boss Chris Coleman slammed his players for living in a “comfort zone” as their slide out of European contention continued.

And Coleman refused to blame the recent exit of Louis Saha for his side’s recent plight despite their glaring inefficiencies in front of goal.

Coleman said: “Wolves were more hungry today and we were in that comfort zone which is disappointing.

“We lost Louis and he is a quality player but he has gone.

“There is no excuse and the most disappointing thing to me really is how we are losing.

“The performance today was lacklustre. We started the season fighting and playing with a fear of losing and proving people wrong.

“Our season could soon fizzle out if we don’t start playing with that fear again. Maybe one or two of my players think it’s the end of the season and they are wrong.”
