Fulham Coach Slavisa Jokanovic was satisfied with Fulham’s performance in the 3-1 victory over Preston North End, and promises his side will continue to strive towards the top-six.

Other results did not go the Whites’ way on Saturday with Reading and Sheffield Wednesday both winning, but a Play-Off place is still firmly in sight with 12 fixtures still to play.

“I believe we played a good football game,” Jokanovic stated in his post-match press conference. “I must be satisfied with our performance. We moved the ball and created many chances.  

“When Preston scored their goal we were in some trouble for a few minutes, but we found a solution and the team showed character and played bravely.

“Preston have had a very good season. They arrived at Craven Cottage with only point less than what we have in the competition.

“But my team was really focused and we played very good football and it is credit for my players how they played today, and credit to Preston how they are fighting in this competition.”

He continued: “In the last five games we have won 13 points and my team are definitely playing with confidence. My team believes this is the best way for us to try and play.

“We are going to keep going and in front of us we are going to have the chance to play two of the top teams in this competition.

“We are going to test ourselves and we are going to find out where we are in this moment.

“I am not such a romantic man. I always want to win the game, and so I am always disappointed when we don’t come away with three points.

“Generally where we are right now, we can be relatively satisfied as we are around the top-six. There is a gap between us and the top-six teams and it is our target to push until the end of the season. We are still in a position to keep fighting.”

Sone Aluko broke the deadlock at Craven Cottage, before setting up Neeskens Kebano for the killer third goal, and his impact pleased his Head Coach.

“Sone has had a good season,” Jokanovic said. “He is an important part of my squad and today he played very well in the game.

“This is his normal level, I didn’t ask anything different. He is working very well, he is working very hard and he scored an important goal for us.

“I believe he will keep at this same level.”
