Talking exclusively to FulhamFCTV, The Whites’ mercurial talisman gave his insight of the dominant performance his side displayed in their 2-1 victory on the road against Cardiff City in Emirates FA Cup.

Fulham's vice captain began the interview by hailing the match as "great to play”.

The Scotsman continued in stating: “The way we play football and the way we dominated for the whole game was great to be a part of".

Fulham's vice captain praised the club's performance; "It's what we are capable of".

“That's what we are capable of and have been doing it for a long time now".

"The gaffer [Jokanovic] changed the formation, we didn't expect it because we had been playing so well in the previous formation. He has a lot of belief in us and he gets us to get the ball on the floor and when we do that I don't think many teams can stop us".

Focus for The Cottagers now turns towards the match against Barnsley this Saturday at Craven Cottage.

Cairney addresses the fixture as a 'tough one'.

"They [Barnsley] came up last season and have been riding that wave of being in the Championship and their enthusiasm, their energy they play with, is hard to deal with at times".

"I think if we play our game and we control the game like we did at their place [Oakwell], I believe we will walk away with 3 points".

"We have got to win on Saturday, we need to put a run together, not two games but three or four".

"Because I believe once we get in that top 6, I think we'll stay there".

"I think once we play our football in that top 6, not many teams can live with us and I think we'll stay there".

"We are going under the radar at the moment. We don't play on Sky very often like most teams, like Leeds [United] & [Aston] Villa, so people are not really seeing it unless they come to The Cottage or at the games, but it was on tele and a lot of people are now talking about how Fulham play football and rightly so".

"If we do what we did at the weekend, live on Sky next week, people will definitely start talking about us".
