Fulham's Aaron Hughes insists they cannot keep blaming bad luck for their poor form.
The Cottagers have won just once in the Premier League this season and although misfortune has struck at times for The Whites - Hughes insists that they cannot keep falling back on that as an excuse.
"You can't blame bad luck all the time," he told the club's official website.
"There have been games earlier in the season when you'd think a little bit of luck would have been nice but there are also times when you make your own luck.
"We've just got to keep working hard, training is going well and we've just got to be confident enough to take that on to the football pitch and pass it around.
"This football pitch is no different to a pitch anywhere else we've just got to trust in our abilities to play well.
"The table's still very tight and it will be like that for another few weeks so it's important that we continue to pick up points, preferably through winning games."
