Fulham coach Slavisa Jokanovic labelled the 2-0 victory over Leeds United as a ‘good result’ for his squad as they continue to push for promotion.

Goals from Kevin McDonald and Aleksandar Mitrovic secured a comfortable win for the Whites and stretched their unbeaten run to eighteen games.

“It’s a good result,” said Jokanovic.

“We started the game very well, put them under pressure, we dominated, created many chances and, in the end, we were a little lucky to score our first goal.

“In the second half, Leeds started to find some gaps in between the lines, and stared to connect better, especially Pablo Hernandez and Samuel Saiz.

“After Marcus Bettinelli made a great save, we showed quality in our offensive transition. We’re an offensive team, we created many chances and it’s great news that we finished the game with another clean sheet. It’s very important to show that we can survive these difficult moments.”

The Whites currently sit third in the table, with five points separating them from Cardiff City in second place.

“All we can do is prepare ourselves and get ready for the next game,” insisted Jokanovic.

“Everything is in Cardiff’s hands,” said the Fulham Head Coach. “There’s a big points difference between us. Now they have hard games ahead, but I believe they’ll win. We’ll try and do our job. We must keep trying for our supporters. At the end, it’s not a chase. They need to make mistakes if we’re to have any chance of catching them.

“My job is not to be satisfied; my job is to push my players to work even harder. This game is behind us, and if I’m unhappy or happy, it’s not so important. Every single Championship team is fighting for big targets and we haven’t achieved ours at the moment.

“We’re at the point of the season where we can still try to be successful, but we won’t the final result know until the end of season.

“I am proud of how hard my team is working and how they try to push to win these games. I am proud because they’ve never given up.

“I don’t know if we can catch Cardiff. I really can’t answer this question. I only care about my team and that’s it.”
