Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic was pleased to see his team’s fluid football overcome Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Boxing Day.

A Chris Martin free-kick had put his side in front, and although a number of chances were missed before Ragnar Sigurdsson headed in to make it 2-0, it was a comfortable win in the end for Fulham.

“We are very happy with how we played today, it’s a very good Boxing Day for us,” Jokanovic stated. “We won a very important three points to continue fighting towards our targets.

“We secured another clean sheet, we dominated the game, and Ipswich didn’t have any shots on target. This is good news for us.

“We created many, many chances but didn’t score the second goal in the moments where we were dominant. But in the end we scored this goal to close the game out. We changed the system when we started to have some kind of problem, and it’s a great day for us.

“We tried to put the ball on the floor. We tried to be brave, tried to move the ball, and tried to follow our style. I believe my team has this kind of quality, so we tried to show our strengths and not our weaknesses.”

The victory moved the Whites to within a point of the Play-Off spots, but Jokanovic reiterated his stance that he is not looking that far ahead.

“I know what the targets of this Club are, I know what our supporters want, but I prefer thinking about short steps,” he explained. “I prefer to think about the Reading game which is in front of us.

“This is the new chance to fight for three points. We’ll know in May if we’re in the top-six or not, but right now we are working and preparing for what is immediately in front of us.”
