Fulham defender Calum Chambers believes their strong recent displays justify the progress they’ve made following their 1-1 draw against Wolves

The Arsenal loanee played the full 90 minutes as Fulham extended their winless run to six matches on Boxing Day.

The Cottagers seemed set to earn a second win under new manager Claudio Ranieri when 18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon put them ahead after the break.

But Romain Saiss’ late equaliser for Wolves denied Fulham all three points.

Although Chambers feels that it shouldn’t take away the progress they’ve made under Ranieri.

“Obviously, we’re all a bit disappointed,” Chambers told fulhamfc.com.

“We went one up and thought we were playing well. We were looking solid and they got a bit of momentum and pushed forward to get the goal back and, unfortunately, they did, so we’ve come off that a little bit disappointed, but again, there are positive signs.

“Our performances have been good as of late, we have to just keep pushing and work on the Manager’s philosophy in training.

“We’ve changed formation in the past couple of games and I feel that it’s looking good. We’ve got to keep our heads up and keep pushing.

“We’ve moved to three at the back and it’s different to what we were doing before, so we’ve been working on that and our positional play off the ball, what to do on the ball, so it’s very detailed and it’s been good.

“I feel it’s been showing in games. We’ve been putting in positive performances.

“Things will turn. We have got to keep believing and keep pushing ourselves. We’ve got the quality to get wins under our belts.

“We’re all going in gutted after the game. We all thought we were going to get three points. We put in a good shift and a good performance, first half especially where we played really well.

“On another day, we could’ve been two up in the first half. We’ve just got to look at it, move on and take the positives quickly.

“At this period, games come around thick and fast so, we’ve got to learn from it and be ready for the next one.”
