Felix Magath was flabbergasted by Fulham’s frailty from set plays as his side’s survival hopes were dealt a huge blow in defeat at Cardiff.

“I am shocked that we concede goals from corners. That’s the easiest situation. You have time to stand and organise, so I don’t know why it is,” Magath said. “Over the next week, we will have to hold training sessions on defending, especially on corner kicks.”

The German still feels Fulham can stay up – with their home form likely to be critical. “If we do win our home matches, I think that could be enough,” he claimed.
