Fulham Head Coach Scott Parker was delighted to see the work done on the training pitch executed to perfection against Millwall.

The Lions came into the game above Fulham in the table, but Parker’s side passed them off the park and ended up with a comprehensive 4-0 win.

“The most pleasing thing is all the hard work that has gone in over the past few weeks, and seeing your team execute it against a very good Millwall side, who have started the season pretty well,” he said.

“Full credit to the players, who have been superb.

The information that they’ve been given has been poured on them, but they’ve been so receptive and right behind the process.

“I felt it was comfortable tonight, in terms of the way we played.

I felt we were in control of the game and that’s the way I want us to play, dominating possession.

“In the second half we weathered the storm, Millwall put us under a little bit of pressure and then we got back into our rhythm.

Momentum is with us and confidence is high, and long may that continue.

“We realise how difficult this league is, we need to dust ourselves off and enjoy tonight, but come 10am tomorrow when the lads are in for training at Motspur Park, then this game is done and we look forward to Forest on Saturday.”

The front three of Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ivan Cavaleiro and Anthony Knockaert brought the goals, and Parker is delighted with how they’re clicking.

“It’s so important,” he said. “That’s credit to the owners and Tony Khan who identified the mistakes we made last year in terms of recruitment and ticked boxes.

You know what you’re getting, you know what you’ve signed, and all the new boys have fitted in perfectly.

“Our whole framework, the way we play, our structure is based around those players.

There’s a lot of support around them and what the other boys do, and ultimately they’re the ones that get headlines and score the goals, but there’s a foundation behind them – the Cairneys, Johansens, Arters, Sessegnons.”
