Fulham striker Ross McCormack has switched to a deeper role for Fulham - and Kit Symons insists that's where last season's leading Championship scorer is most dangerous.

The Scot saved the day with a 120th minute penalty to exit Wolves from the FA Cup at a snowy Molineux last night, but it was McCormack's first goal since December 20 in the 4-0 rout of Sheffield Wednesday.

However, Kit Symons reckons the club's £11m signing has more strings to his bow than just getting on the end of chances in the box.

"Ross is more than capable playing behind two strikers," said Symons.

"He can play out wide, he's very versatile. When he plays that role we don't want him to come too deep. If he can get the ball in between their midfield and back four that's when he's most dangerous, and when he comes back from high into that pocket of space.

"When we changed our shape to a flatter four, (against Wolves) he went and played wide and showed what a talented footballer he is."
