Fulham Head Coach Scott Parker saluted the grittiness of his side in a challenging match-up against Hull City and provided an update on Aleksandar Mitrovic.

"I thought in the first-half we played pretty well. I felt we had a control about us. We worked a lot this week in training to play against a Hull side who are probably the best counter attacking team in the division and we limited their counter opportunities very well, their wide players have vast quality and we worked to nullify that.

"The second-half turned into a typical Championship game, which lacked massive quality. If there’s one negative from me, it’s that it wasn't a vintage Fulham display from us by any stretch of the imagination, but we’ve learnt from our previous game against Hull. Cavaleiro’s goal was a worthy winner. We dug in and showed massive character.

"Our aim is to continue picking up as many points as we can. Saying that, we realise how tough this division is. We’ve shown how brilliant we are at times this season, and on the flip-side, we’ve been a little inconsistent.

"Today wasn’t that game where we’ll come away and think we were brilliant, but we got the result and showed another side to us, which was key. We are where we are. This team still’s relatively young and we need to keep building.

"Ultimately, we need to grind out results and we’ve done that. We’ve got to keep picking up points. There are a few teams in and around it, but we’ve got to worry about ourselves.

I need to keep banging home what we need to do in this division to win points and try to get promoted."

"Ivan Cavaleiro’s a matchwinner. With his quality, give him a slight opportunity, give him a yard and he’ll put it in the back of the net."

Aleksandar Mitrovic's injury "doesn’t look great. He’s injured himself pretty badly. It looks like he's twisted his ankle and he’s struggling at the moment.

"We’ll scan him tomorrow and see where we are. When you lose your talisman, someone who puts the ball in the back of the net, it’s never going to be easy, but I have full faith in this squad.

"We’ll see what happens overnight and we’ll find out the full extent of his injury tomorrow."
