Jokanovic Reflects On Wycombe Win

Jokanovic Reflects On Wycombe Win

Slavisa Jokanovic has said he was happy with Fulham's overall play in the victory over Wycombe Wanderers yesterday evening.

Heading to Wycombe for the League Cup first round tie, Fulham took a two nil victory with goals coming from Lucas Piazon and Denis Odoi to book our place in Thursday's round two draw, and speaking to the Official Site as he met with the media post game, a relatively pleased gaffer explained.

'The team was competitive and showed desire. We played well, although we missed a little quality in our final passes in the first-half. In the second-half we showed better ambition to win the game and scored a quality goal. Denis Odoi then killed the game and we finished the game in a comfortable manner - something we didn`t do against Norwich, we found our killer instinct against Wycombe.'

With eleven changes made to the team, including a debut for Matt O'Riley, he went on to say.

'The boy is only 16-years-old and showed his quality. It wasn`t easy for him in the beginning, but at the end he showed quality, style and good technique. I believe in the end, he enjoyed his night as a player of the Fulham first team. He must continue working really hard for more important battles. It`s just one step for him.'

With Michael Madl leading the team out as skipper on the evening, he reflected on that experience post game.

'It`s an honour to be captain of this team and to lead the team on the pitch. It was a very tough game against a pretty good Wycombe team. I think in that first-half we had a few problems, we lost the ball too easily and missed a few chances but we had some very good players out there. The young guys, Stevie Sessegnon, Tayo Edun and Matty O`Riley, they did a good job so the next round now becomes the most important thing.'

Partnering Madl at the back was summer signing Marcelo Djalo, and he was impressive on his own debut on the day.

'He`s big, but he is very good on the ball, he has a very good technique and made some good passes so yeah, he is a good player. Playing in that back four, Denis Odoi played well on the left and so did Stevie on the right, so I think we did a good job in the second-half. We made a few mistakes but I think all together it was pretty okay.'
