Calum Chambers has urged the Fulham squad to stick together in their bid to climb away from the relegation zone.

The Cottagers remain bottom after Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by West Ham.

Yet they are still only three points from safety ahead of three huge matches against Newcastle, Wolves and Huddersfield over Christmas.

Midfielder Chambers said: ''I think we can take heart from that performance.

"We said in the dressing room afterwards 'stay together, keep fighting, keep playing like this' because again we created chances, we've just got to put them away.''

Fulham did create chances and Aboubakar Kamara could have had a first-half hat-trick but was denied three times by Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

West Ham scored through Robert Snodgrass and Michail Antonio to make if four wins on the spin and go into the top half.

Fabian Balbuena hailed coach Manuel Pellegrini, saying: "He transmits the mentality of a winner and all the guys recognise that philosophy.''
