As we head down the final stretch of the 2017 / 2018 season, Fulham are in good form.

An unbeaten run of seven matches has lifted the side to within one point of a play-off place.

The 6-0 demolition of Burton Albion has served warning that, just like last season, Fulham are the side to watch as the lay-offs approach.

Following the game, both managers spoke to the media.

First-up, the Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, who had this to say, about his side,

‘Lucas played very well today. It’s great for his confidence after a long injury. He has been part of our improvement in the last few games.

‘He scored a goal, he feels happy in himself and from finding some end product from his work. And he will get better in the future.

‘It’s great news for Rui to score two goals today. We expect some games where we won’t find as much space behind the defensive line and Rui can help us with his movement. It’s great for his confidence. He is working well daily and trying to prove himself.

‘It’s good to extend our good run. My team were focused and concentrated and played good football.’

They certainly did.

As for the Burton Albion boss, Nigel Clough, he had this to say,

‘We just can’t cope with the quality that they’ve got.

‘It sounds silly, but three of the goals are just deflections that have ricocheted and dropped down to them.

‘But just with the quality players they have all over the pitch, you need everything to go in your favour.’

Onwards and upwards Fulham.
