Fulham striker Bobby Zamora hailed the hard work and resilience of the Fulham players after they came from behind to beat Arsenal.

The Gunners took a 21st minute lead via Laurent Koscielny but the Cottagers improved after the break and took full advantage when Johan Djourou was sent-off with 12 minutes to play for a second bookable offence.

Steve Sidwell notched the equaliser with five minutes remaining before Zamora, returning after a spell out with an Achilles injury, volleyed a last-gasp winner.

The England striker said "We've been working hard all season and haven't got the home results we want but this caps all our hard work.

"We want to do well - the Manchester United game wasn't like us at home...but the togetherness and resilience of the boys has shown tonight." Bobby Zamora Quotes of the week

"My ankle and opposite Achilles have been playing up - I've had to have a jab in it to sort it out and hopefully it's done it for a while.

"We want to do well - the Manchester United game wasn't like us at home (Fulham lost 5-0)...but the togetherness and resilience of the boys has shown tonight."

Fulham boss Martin Jol recently played down talk of a rift with Zamora amid reports the striker was unhappy after being left out of the squad in the defeat at Swansea.

Regarding his own future with the club, Zamora said: "You press guys like to write whatever you want. A lot of it is blown out of all proportion - I've got a few years on my contract yet."
