Head coach Jonathan Woodgate had his say after Boro's five-match unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship was ended by Fulham.
Anthony Knockaert struck the decisive goal with just six minutes played when he converted Joe Bryan's low delivery to end our run of five games without defeat.
"We didn't turn up. The first 25 minutes they were right on top of us and it was difficult," said Woodgate.
"The three games in six days doesn't help at all, they're a really good team Fulham and they're now three points off automatic promotion.
"It was always going to be difficult, we were better in the second half, but it's disappointing."
