Fulham 2 Aston Villa 0 - Views from the Bench
Fulham Football Club are on the charge.
The Cottagers are now on an unbeaten 10 game run, in the Championship, whilst also winning their last 7 home fixtures.
After the highly pleasing victory against an Aston Villa side who had won their last 7 Championship fixtures, both managers spoke to the media.
Slavisa Jokanovic who, once again, is steering Fulham towards the end-of-season promotion shake-up, had this to say,
'We played with confidence, but we cannot think the job is done. We must show solidarity and work together.
'All the squad will be needed, not just the players who started today, but those on the bench and in the stand.
'In the second half we tried something a little bit different, we scored two goals and we could have scored some more. We must be satisfied with our performance, we played very good football, but it is only three points.'
It is, but the belief in the camp is growing with every victory.
As for Steve Bruce, who had seen his sides winning run come to an end, he had this to say,
'I didn't think there was anything in it. It was a tense game with two very good teams for the first 60 minutes.
'It was always going to be the first goal that was likely to decide the game and we're disappointed because we know they're very good down the flanks in particular, they're quick in wide areas and we've been done down the wide area.
'We've made a mistake for the first and a mistake for the second. We've made more mistakes today than we've probably done in six weeks, but that's football.'
It is and I`m sure both teams will have a huge say in who achieves that dream of a return to the Premier League come May.
