Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic was pleased with how his side executed their gameplan at Griffin Park on Friday night.

Brentford had only lost once on their own patch this season before Fulham arrived, but a dominant display earned the Whites a deserved 2-0 win.

“It’s always complicated playing in this stadium,” Jokanovic stated. “I think my team was very well prepared for this game.

“We started well and we stopped [Scott] Hogan from running off our shoulders. The job that we did was very important for us.

“In the end we showed good ambition, we were very motivated, we played with personality. We went into the end of the game with only one goal difference, but we created many chances to score some more goals.”

Fulham go into the latest international break on the back of arguably their two strongest performances of the season, and our Head Coach has been satisfied with the improvement he’s seen.

“The last games, step by step, we’ve started to be more competitive, more solid, more organised,” he explained. “It’s very good news for us because we kept our fifth clean sheet today.

“Last season we had only four. I believe there’s space to improve ourselves, and this is the job that’s in front of us.”

The result means the Whites are outside the Play-Off spots by just one goal, but Jokanovic reiterated his refusal to carried away.

“I try to live in the present,” he stated, “I try to think about short steps, I try thinking about the next game.

“I don’t know what is going to happen in the spring, at the end of April or beginning of May. It’s step by step and if we continue working well, if we continue with our progress, if we continue to improve, many interesting things could happen.”
