George Williams admits the manner of Fulham's defeat to Brentford was difficult to stomach.
Hugo Rodallega had put the Cottagers ahead at Griffin Park, only for late goals from Harlee Dean and Jota to snatch bragging rights in Friday's west London derby.
Youngster Williams said: “It was tough to take losing to our neighbours, especially the way we lost as well, conceding two goals in the last 10 minutes really hurts.
“I don’t think you can ever just settle for a point in this league. It was end-to-end, but I think when we got the lead we needed to try and control the game better than we did.
“We let them back in it and once they scored one we knew it was going to be hard because they were putting pressure on us. Unfortunately, we couldn’t keep them out.”
Williams saluted the travelling contingent and was disappointed Fulham couldn't give them something to shout about at the final whistle.
“The fans were unbelievable," the Welshman added. "They kept pushing us and never stopped singing. That plays a big part because it’s easy to drop your heads. They give you a confidence boost.”
