Felix Magath says Fulham have learned their lesson from last weekend's draw with Hull as they prepare for Saturday's showdown against Stoke City.
The Whites blew a two-goal lead as Steve Bruce's side came back to earn a share of the spoils and deal a big blow to Fulham's survival hopes.
Magath's men head to the Britannia in the bottom three, a point adrift of safety with just two games away to save themselves.
But the Craven Cottage chief, who could be without top scorer Steve Sidwell, insists there will be no repeat of the collapse which cost them dear against the Tigers.
He said: “It was a new situation for us last Saturday, that’s why it happened. I don’t think it will happen again, I think if we are two goals in front we will take care of our defence.
“We were 2-0 ahead and had control over the game. I have the feeling that on Saturday the players were excited for the result and for the crowd, and the feeling of leading, and they tried to play more offensive and score more.
“But the better thing would be to avoid [conceding] the goal. They got a goal from nothing and then you have seen that we are not confident enough to handle such a situation. For us it was terrible – it was not necessary.”
