Fulham`s promotion plans were given another boost at Pride Park, when they extended their unbeaten run to fourteen games and climbed above Derby County in the Championship table.

Against Derby County, Ryan Sessegnon continued his fine recent goal-scoring form by adding another to his career best total for a season.

Following the game, the Fulham boss, Slavisa Jokanovic, had a few words of praise for the talented teenager, remarking to the media,

‘I started working with Ryan Sessegnon when he was 16 years old and I believe he can be part of the English national team for the World Cup.

‘Experience is important but he is a really expert player for his age at this moment. It’s evident that if he doesn’t have any injury problems, he will be a top player.

‘He is not a kid, he is a man and he gives myself, the club and his team-mates many things and we try to support him and make him still better than he is right now.’

Could Ryan be a surprise inclusion in Gareth Southgate`s squad for the 2018 World Cup, in Russia this summer?

As for the Derby County manager, Gary Rowett, he had this to say about his sides performance,

‘Certainly from the start of the game we were very, very good, very aggressive and made it difficult for Fulham to play out.

‘But once again, the reality is we made two very poor mistakes for the goals and from starting the game really well, we are 2-0 down at home.

‘If I’m being honest, in the 10 minutes before half-time we looked a bit sorry for ourselves, two or three players had their heads down and we started to feel it wasn’t going to be our day and I don’t want that, we have to show fight.’

Another good away day for the Cottagers as they approach the nitty-gritty part of the season.
