Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli has apologised to fans through Twitter, after being sent off against Watford last night.
Slavisa Jokanovic’s Watford side won 5-0 against Kit Symons’ Fulham in what was a performance to forget for the home side.
Hornets forward Troy Deeney scored a hat-trick and Almen Abdi scored a brace, including a 20-yard stunner, in what was a fantastic night for Watford, which they hope will trigger a change in form after not fulfilling expectations this season.
Keeper Bettinelli added to Fulham’s woes after being sent off early on at Craven Cottage. He tweeted: “Absolutely gutted about tonight… Apologies to all the boys and the fans tonight.”
Watford manager Jokanovic was delighted with the performance, telling the BBC: “After a bad November we have started December better. It was very close to a perfect performance after some bad results.
“We played a fantastic game. I must be happy, I expect my players and supporters go home happy.”
Meanwhile, Fulham boss Kit Symons said that major improvement was needed after the poor display, also telling the BBC: “There’s quite a lot we can learn from that. There is a lot of hard work and a lot of improving to be done.
“We started very poorly and Watford came out all guns blazing. We gave away a bad goal and then the sending-off makes life difficult. We had a mountain to climb.”
The result see’s Watford go into a play-off position in the Sky Bet Championship table, whereas Fulham are left languishing in 16th position in the table.
