Fulham assistant manager Christian Damiano hailed The Cottagers' 1-0 victory at Leeds as "the result of the season".

Steed Malbranque's 52nd-minute winner was all that separated the sides and would appear to have guaranteed Fulham Premiership football for next season.

The Cottagers are now seven points clear of the relegation zone, with only Ipswich able to catch the London club.

However, Ipswich still have to play title-chasers Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.

Damiano feels Fulham are still not safe yet as he said: "At this moment, based on the last six seasons, I feel we need 41 points to be safe and so that means we need one more point.

"We confirmed our quality in this game, but then every time we play, home and away, we play with spirit and we deserved this win.

"It's the result of the season for us, which has been an unlucky one in many respects.

"Today we were perhaps lucky given some of the chances Leeds had, but then the one we had was finished very well."
