MARTIN Jol could not hide his disappointment at seeing his side bow out of the FA Cup at Everton, to what he felt was two preventable goals.
The Whites failed to build on an early lead given to them by skipper Danny Murphy's penalty at Goodison Park and they succumbed to headers in each half from Denis Stracqualursi and Marouane Fellaini.
"We're disappointed to concede two goals in the manner that we did, from two crosses - we know that we are better than that," the Fulham boss said.
"We know their style, we knew that they would do that because they like to put crosses into the box, but with the quality that we have, we expected more.
"Everton put us under pressure tonight and we found it difficult to play our game. We couldn't play it around them as we would have liked.
"We got off to a good start and of course it is frustrating that we didn't build on that because we had two or three good chances."
Jol added: "They were missing a few players at the back and we should have exploited that more. But they reacted well to our goal, and then really took the game to us.
"We knew it would be a difficult match, but believed that we could take something. To go out of the Cup is very extremely disappointing for us all."
