Fulham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has admitted Fulham are in danger of being sucked into a relegation scrap after their 1-0 loss at home to leaders Hull.
The Whites had the bulk of possession against the Tigers but were unable to break through their spirited defence.
And Fulham paid the penalty when Lasse Vige Christensen brought down Moses Odubajo in the penalty area and Abel Hernandez scored from the spot to condemn Fulham to defeat.
The result leaves Slavisa Jokanovic’s side four points above the relegation zone and O’Hara, who captained Fulham for the first time after Scott Parker was withdrawn, knows his side are in danger of the drop to League One.
“We’re in danger of getting sucked into it. We’ve been unlucky with a few results. We were the better side against Sheffield Wednesday and we need to get results,” O’Hara said.
“I said to the boys that we’ve got to get results. It doesn’t matter how well you play, how much possession you have, you’ve got to get results.
“We’ve got to cut out mistakes. We’re starting to look over our shoulders or it’s not good enough.
He added: “We’ve got a good squad of players. People can come in and do a job. We’ve got a strong enough squad to stay in the league and I believe we’re in a false position but the table speaks for itself.”
O’Hara has called on his team-mates to stick together as they bid to avoid being dragged further into the mire.
He added: “It’s about sticking together. I’ve been in some tough scraps myself and I’ve been in good squads that have gone down.
“I’ve said to the lads that we’ve got to be men. Men stay in the league and this Championship is about having men.
“We’ve got a young squad with a lot of quality. We need the experienced lads to pull everyone in the right direction and make sure we’re not looking down.”
