Fulham coach Rene Meulensteen admitted his team had hit “rock bottom” following the Cottagers’ 1-0 loss at home to Sheffield United in an FA Cup fourth round replay. Shaun Miller scored the only goal of the game in the final minute of overtime.
"If you talk about this game and you say, 'Have we hit rock-bottom?' We probably have. OK, fine, that's it,” Meulensteen said. "It is no big secret (why we performed like this). When you get into a situation where the results aren't going for you, when you are playing well and putting in a lot of effort, bit by bit it keeps knocking your confidence and what you saw today was a team that lacked confidence."
The game marked Clint Dempsey's sixth game without a goal since joining Fulham on loan from the Seattle Sounders.
