Fulham manager Felix Magath admits things have to change after the struggling Whites hit rock bottom of the Championship at the weekend.
Magath, under pressure to oversee an instant return to the Premier League following relegation last term, knows the results need to improve quickly.
He said: “If you see the four defeats, in the first three games, we were in the match and we could have had a draw or a win.
“But now we have four losses in a row. The result at Derby was very bad and it’s time to change something but it was not a question of preparation. It’s a young team in a difficult situation.
“I’m convinced the quality of the players is good but we are not gelling as a team at the moment. After the losses we don’t have enough confidence to show what we are able to do. I have to react to that.
“I want to play for the first places in the league, not the last. I’m not satisfied with the situation and I apologise to the fans, they came here and supported us and we struggled in the last half hour. It was not a good evening for them.”
Fulham take on Brentford in the Capital One Cup tomorrow evening and striker Cauley Woodrow believes the competition could provide the perfect tonic for the Championship basement boys.
He added: “It gives us a bit of respite from the league and hopefully we can get a good result to take us into Saturday’s game with Cardiff City.
“It’s not been a good start to the season but we just have to regroup. It’s a long old season and we know we’re going to turn it around and get some wins. It’s not the start we would have wanted though, obviously.”
