However goals from Fulham’s men of the moment, Stefan Johansen and Floyd Ayité, saw The Cottagers battle out a well thought home victory on Tuesday night.

“It was a game that we were expected to win", stated the match winner in an interview with the club's official website.

“At Wolves we dropped two points so we wanted to approach the game very well but we had a small error of concentration early on".

“It was important for us to keep our focus and before the break we got the equaliser and then we stepped it up in the second half and got the goal which won us the game".

The Togolese international managed to continue his goal scoring run, after netting his first goals for the club at the weekend.

“In the first half we really, really pushed because we wanted to get a foothold in the game very, very quickly. I missed some chances but fortunately in the second half I was able to get the important goal.”

Ayité continued to explain his delight at his current form in what he described as formidable Fulham squad.

“I came here to experience great feelings like this and to share that joy and the pleasure of playing in these games with our supporters,” he said.

“I’m so happy that they make me feel really warmly welcomed here, and I’m equally happy that I’m able to give them something back".

“I think we’re one of the best sides for playing very good football and I think we’ll have a very good chance of reaching the top-six positions if we continue to work hard, score lots of goals, and maybe tighten up at the back.”
