Fulham head coach Slavisa Jokanovic savoured a resounding derby victory and Fulham's first win since he took over as head coach.

Ross McCormack, Moussa Dembele and Tom Cairney scored first-half goals to give the Whites a 3-1 triumph in a one-sided game against QPR at Loftus Road.

"After a month of them suffering, I am happy for our supporters. It was a great day for us and I believe we deserved that," said Jokanovic.

"At the end we didn't take the chance to get a clean sheet, but that's the only thing we could do better.

"We are working very hard to try to be competitive and concentrated, and this match was very positive for us.

"The players have been working very hard in training and this is good for their confidence - they can start to believe they are really good footballers and can play good football.

"This team can score goals. They scored them before I arrived. We need to find a balance and be more competitive and more solid to be a better team than we are.

"This is only one game. It's important now for us to keep on going and keep winning games. We will keep on working hard."

Jokanovic voiced concerns over Lasse Christensen after the midfielder limped off barely six minutes into the game.

Christensen tested Rs keeper Alex Smithies with a low drive and shortly after sat down while signalling to the bench.

Last season, the Danish U21 international was beset with a litany of knocks, and Jokanovic thinks the latest setback is more of the same.

The manager said: "He has a hamstring problem. He needs a check and we will find out. It's something similar. He told me he has these problems from last season but we don't know yet."

Asked why Rangers had performed so poorly, Hasselbaink said: 'I don't know. I will have to watch the video and review it.

'What I do know is that it was not acceptable. The fans deserve better and we deserve better to ourselves.

'We had put the standard down in the previous matches and this was well under that standard. We were making steps forward and I didn't see this coming at all.
