Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has admitted his side need to address their goal-scoring concern following the disappointing 1-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers in the EFL Cup.

The Cottagers haven't set their season alight so far in front of goal, and they never really looked like scoring on Tuesday.

Jokanovic started with Aboubakar Kamara in attack against the League One side, and despite much promise from his wide men especially in the second half, the frontline hardly had a sniff.

"It is clearly evident we are not scoring. We have to have more confidence and move the ball more with pace, we must show more quality," said the manager.

"We need to find a solution. We have our team to attack from the wide positions but we didn't create enough chances.

"We fought and we pushed, we showed ambition and desire, but not enough clear chances.

"In this moment it's not good news for us but we have to stay positive and work hard to find a solution."

The first half was very pedestrian-like from Fulham and they were hit by Ellis Harrison's early goal, which turned out to be the winner.

The hosts were much better in the second period, begging the question why didn't they show as much promise from the opening whistle?

"In general, we tried to open the pitch up a bit more with our wingers, getting the ball to Kebano and Ojo," said Jokanovic, when asked if there were stern words said at half-time.

"We just didn't create clear chances. We did improve in the beginning of the second half, that is true.

"We tried to bring more players into play and we connected a lot more, it was better but it just didn't bring us a positive outcome."
