Fulham striker Chris Martin believes it's time to hand over penalty taking duties to someone else.

The Derby loanee saw his last two attempts saved, first by Alex Smithies at QPR on Saturday and then by Ali Al Habsi at Reading on Tuesday night.

Had those spot kicks been converted, the Whites could easily have picked up an additional three points and Martin feels it's time to pass the duty on, with Sone Aluko keen on the role.

The Fulham said: “I'm bitterly disappointed to miss penalties two games in a row. I think it's probably time to give someone else a chance of it.

Focused: Chris Martin

“These things happen in football – if you step up there you've got a chance of missing. It would have got us a point but I have to forget it as quick as I can and plan for the next game.”

Fulham have missed seven penalties in total this season and Martin admitted the only thing on his mind, when putting the ball down, is making sure it ends up in the back of the net.

He added: “All I'm thinking about is trying to score. I pick an area and try and execute. It's been a problem for us and me personally.

“Reading have had similar luck with their penalties. We've got to keep our heads up and hopefully the next one can go in if we can find someone who is better than me on penalties.”
