Football can be such a cruel game, as Fulham found out yesterday,

The Cottagers, entertaining Bristol City, slipped to their third successive home defeat, the previous two coming at the hands of Middlesbrough and Burnley.

In doing so though, Fulham are now in real danger of slipping into the relegation zone with the gap between them and the relegation places down to a solitary point, squeaky-bum time or what.

But things started so well yesterday down at Craven Cottage when, with only three minutes on the clock, Fulham went ahead when the goal-scoring machine that is Ross McCormack elegantly chipped Richard O`Donnell, in the Bristol City goal, to put Fulham 1-0 up.

It would have been the kind of start that Slavisa Jokanovic would have dreamed of, even more so after Bristol City could have taken the lead through Joe Bryan in the opening seconds.

But Fulham couldn`t capitalize on their lead and midway through the second half found themselves level when Marlon Pack hit a great strike from long-range that beat Andy Lonergan, in the Fulham goal, all ends up.

Whilst, beforehand, the idea of settling for appoint would have been a no-no, at this stage the Craven Cottage support would have gladly grabbed it with both hands, even more so when, in the 90th minute, Bristol City stole all three points when, from a free-kick, Lee Tomlin scored.

Like I said in the opening gambit, this game of ours can be such a cruel game.
