Rene Meulensteen says that Fulham did not show enough quality against Sheffield United.

Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen has said that his players did not play well enough to beat Sheffield United in the FA Cup this afternoon.

The home side took the lead through Chris Porter, but Hugo Rodallega equalised for Fulham with 15 minutes left.

Despite some late pressure, the London outfit were unable to find the winner and now face a replay at Craven Cottage.

"They (Sheffield United) gave it their all and got their noses in front. We didn't produce enough quality to get the second goal," Meulensteen told BBC Sport.

"If there are positives to take out of the game, it is that we are still in FA Cup and the young players did well."

Fulham are back in league action against Swansea City on Tuesday night.
