David Button believes Fulham need to learn how to defend leads better after throwing away yet another one in the 3-1 defeat to Brentford.
The Whites have thrown away leads several times over the course of the season and Saturday was another to add to that list as the Bees came from behind after Neeskens Kebano had put Slavisa Jokanovic's side in the lead.
Sergi Canos got one back before Romaine Sawyers put the home side in front, with Denis Odoi getting sent off for his second yellow shortly afterwards before Ollie Watkins sealed it.
It's happening too often for Fulham, and Button believes the side need to be smarter in how they defend.
He said: "After going 1-0 up we obviously need to defend our lead better,” Button stated. “We need to be a bit cleverer with how we defend. In the second half we concede following a set-piece and then get the red card, which made it a difficult day for us.
“We played well in the first half but didn’t manage to see it through to half-time, which would’ve given us a good platform to build on.
“Playing away from home with 10 men is always going to be hard, so that was perhaps the turning point because I thought up until then we were well in the game, and that made it really difficult for us.”
