Derby County forward Martyn Waghorn was disappointed with the manner of the goals conceded in the 3-0 defeat against Fulham on Tuesday night.
The Rams were made to pay for their mistakes as goals from Bobby Decordova-Reid, Alexander Mitrovic and Tom Cairney secured the Cottagers all three points at Craven Cottage.
And speaking to RamsTV after the game, Waghorn was frustrated with how Derby conceded their three goals.
“We got ourselves off to a terrible start,” he said. “To concede the way we did in the second and third phase in terms of a set play, switching off and allowing an easy ball into the box and conceding is frustrating.
“It just makes it a whole lot difficult at a place like this. They are a very good side and to give them that head start is always going to be difficult.
“They then keep the ball, try and bring it out of areas that you don’t want to go and you feel like you have to try and win the ball back in places that you shouldn’t really be going into.
“The second goal came from a set play which is disappointing for us because we know in this league that if you do the basics right, keep your set plays tight, do them things well then it gives you half a chance.
“We were pushing and pushing but we couldn’t make the breakthrough that we desired. They hit us on the break again in the second half which we know we had to go for it. Good teams punish you.”
The Rams are without a win on the road since the opening day of the season, however, the form at home is completely contrasting.
Derby have won five consecutive games at Pride Park Stadium and they now face Queens Park Rangers on Saturday on home turf.
“For us, it’s disappointing because of the results we pick up at home,” Waghorn commented. “When you come to places like this and see the way they play, you can get chances. To concede two goals from two set pieces was disappointing.
“We said in the dressing room that we can’t just rely on the home form. If want to get where we need to be then we need to come to places like this and pick up points.
“Saturday is another opportunity to get three points and we just need to have a positive mindset going into the game. It’s not just home form, it’s the all-round game.”
