Chris Coleman is refusing to panic despite Fulham’s disappointing start to the new season.

The Whites looked to have put a worrying spell of form behind them with an emotional win over Liverpool after the club paid tribute to Johnny Haynes but have since been beaten by West Brom and Wigan.

But Coleman told Sky Sports that he isn’t overly concerned at the moment:

“You’re always judged on results but you have to have a look at the way our team is performing; one win in seven with three draws. But it’s not like we’re a disjointed team and there’s no heartbeat, no commitment, or no work ethic – that’s all there. What we haven’t had is that little bit of luck. I have to be careful when I say that because I’m mindful of making excuses, but it’s not an excuse, it’s a fact.

“When we do have that little bit of luck we’ll get the points. We’re a good team – everyone knows we’re a good team… I’m sick of people telling me what a good team we are. We’ve got to keep doing what we’re doing and results will come. I’m 100 percent sure of that. I’ve got my chairman’s backing and director’s backing and he’s happy with the job I’ve done at Fulham since I took over.

Yes, we could be a few places higher but we’ll get there and it’s not something I’ll lose any sleep over.”
