Bobby Decordova-Reid was bitterly disappointed by Fulham’s home defeat at the hands of in-form Huddersfield this afternoon – but believes there are some positives to take from the performance.

The Terriers established a two-goal lead thanks to a predatory strike from Danny Ward and a contentious penalty converted by Duane Holmes. Decordova-Reid, a surprise starter at the expense of Neeskens Kebano, dragged Fulham back into the contest with seven minutes to go but the Whites couldn’t force an equaliser.

Decordova-Reid told Fulham’s official website after the final whistle:

“Look, they’re 15 unbeaten now, so credit to them, they’re a good side. We knew that before the game, and they carried out and executed their plan well. But at the same time, the two goals that we conceded, we could’ve done better. Sometimes it happens in a season. Not everything is going to be rosy and clean.

“The goals we conceded, we’re not happy with them, and obviously they put us in a position where we’re chasing the game. I think maybe if it’s 1-0 at half-time then we’ve got a better chance of coming out second half and getting something. But at the same time, we gave it a good go, unfortunately we couldn’t get the second goal, but I feel there’s positives to take out of it, with the way we played and the way we attacked.

“We pushed, we never gave up, and that’s a good sign from us. We haven’t been in situations where we’re a couple of goals down very often this season, so it was a different challenge for us. At half-time we said we’d go out there and give it everything, and maybe if we’d got a goal earlier then we probably could have got a second one.

“There’s some things that we can’t control, but the first thing that we can control is the way we play and the way we create chances. I think we did that well, maybe we didn’t create as many clear cut ones as we would have liked, but we put balls in good areas. We just didn’t get the rub of the green, I don’t think.”
