Slavisa Jokanovic has defended Chris Martin's failure to convert a penalty in Fulham's 1-0 away defeat to Reading.
The Whites striker won a penalty after he was pushed in the box, but for the second time in a week, his effort was stopped in their seventh missed penalty of the season.
Jokanovic acknowledged his side's 'strange situation' and is adamant he cannot blame Martin, who has scored nine league goals this season.
"It's a really strange situation and we're going to try and find some kind of a solution for this problem," admitted Jokanovic.
"We are now in this stressful situation for ourselves. It's January, it's stressful for my players because they push hard.
"I changed five players and the only one who scored was Chris Martin, two goals, and we're going to try and find some solution."
"I cannot blame any player, today he was the guy to shoot from the penalty spot. He missed and that's it.
"Now I'm thinking if we have the same player for continuity for this situation or am I going to try someone different?
The Royals took the lead early in the second half after Roy Beerens scored off the back of John Swift's penalty which was originally parried away by David Button.
"For me it is 100 per cent mistake, for the referee it's not. We are human, and we can understand a mistake," Jokanovic said of the penalty to the Jaap Stam's side.
After their draw with the QPR on Saturday, the Cottagers boss criticised the Loftus Road pitch but was hard-pressed for a comment on the conditions at the Madejski.
"It is January, I'm not going to criticise any pitch, this is not my job," said Jokanovic.
"My comment was only we didn't find benefit much on the pitch and it benefits QPR's style of play. Nothing more. It's winter and in this month, there's not the best pitches in the world."
