After overcoming QPR with a solid extra time display to take Fulham into the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup, Fulham boss Scott Parker addressed the media with his immediate thoughts.

“It was a tough game,” said our Head Coach. “The same as when we played them last year so we knew that.

“I think over the 90 minutes we both punched away and both teams had some good chances.

“After the couple of weeks we’ve had, to go to extra time and look as strong as we did was pleasing.

“Momentum sticks with us, it’s a win. Unbeaten now in five, a clean sheet as well so a lot of positives out there today.”

With this game being Fulham’s first slice of action for two weeks there was a chance for a few players to recover and get themselves into the starting line-up, something that proved a useful exercise for Scott’s squad.

“Of course, three players out there that started the game were returning,” he explained. “One of them hasn’t played for near on a year- his first game back, in Terence Kongolo. Josh Onomah hasn’t played for some time and the same with Kenny (Tete) as well.

“We had to move it around a little bit in terms of the squad because that’s the position we’re in at the moment.”

Bobby De Cordova-Reid was on the scoresheet once again with another neat finish to continue his fine form this campaign, and Parker knows of his value to the side.

“He’s very important,” stated our boss. “He’s got a real knack of being in the right areas, got an eye for a goal which we’re going to need.

“He’s someone who can get goals for us this year and his finish today was fantastic.”

Another star man in Fulham’s midfield was the returning Josh Onomah, who Scott heaped heavy praise upon.

“I thought he was superb, Parker said. “I didn’t expect the performance in terms of how well he did physically – certainly going into extra time.

“The conditioning guys have done a fantastic job with him to get him to this level. That was his first game for some time and I thought it was the Josh Onomah we’ve got to know so I was very, very pleased.

“He looked powerful and of course, I think we all understand from last year, he’s got quality and I think he’s got a big part to play. Still more to come.”
