FULHAM REACTION | HARRIS

Neil Harris spoke at Craven Cottage following the full-time whistle of City's clash with Fulham.

The Bluebirds slipped to a 2-0 defeat due to Aleksandar Mitrović's spot-kick and Josh Onomah's second-half strike, with Harris expressing his frustration with the scoreline. 

"We're disappointed to lose the game," said the City boss.

"I didn't think there was a lot in it. In the first half, Fulham probably shaded it and were the slightly better team.

"In the second half, I thought we gave a really strong performance, but it's fine lines in these games at the moment.

"I thought we played with a lot of bravery in that second half, moved the ball really well in good areas and forced a lot of dead ball situations.

"But we didn't do enough in the penalty area, which is ultimately where games are won and lost."

Next up, the Bluebirds host Derby County back at CCS on Tuesday evening – a contest upon which Harris set his sights. 

"As of tonight, we're still in sixth place and teams are chasing us," he added.

"If we do fall out of the top six ahead of Tuesday, then we'll go for it without fear again. 

"I think it will be like that between now and the last game of the season on Wednesday week. 

"But we've got ourselves in a good position – now it's about picking points up."
