Fulham striker Ross McCormack believes Fulham have a better balance to their side than they had earlier on this season.

The Whites looked much more solid in the 3-1 win over QPR than they have earlier this campaign but have not kept a clean sheet since October 17 and have been on the wrong end of some heavy defeats.

But McCormack believes that enhanced role of the holding midfielder, such as Scott Parker, has given the club a pivot point.

The Fulham striker said: "We've not had a balance. At the start of the season, we were playing 4-4-2 and attacking with seven or eight players and leaving the defence wide open.

"Teams were sitting and hitting us on the counter attack. We've got a pivot point in defensive midfield whether it be Scott Parker, Rohan Ince Jamie O'Hara, Tom Cairney so if we're attacking we've got the insurance policy." Fulham

went three at the back at Loftus Road and McCormack was impressed with how they worked together as a unit.

He added: "It comes to the experience we've got. Fernando Amorebieta has played for Athletic Bilbao. Dan Burn has played a lot of games.

"Michael Madl has played for Austria. We've got Jamie O'Hara, Tom Cairney, Scott Parker in the middle. We've got experience as well as young legs."
