At the New Den, Fulham produced the kind of performance that makes them contenders to be a Premier League club.
Having weathered a first-half storm, from their hosts, Fulham produced a second-half display that oozed class, scoring three clinical goals to extend their own unbeaten run to 22-games whilst also ending Millwall’s own 17-game unbeaten run.
After the game, both managers spoke to the Sky Sports team:
Slavisa Jokanovic had this to say:
“I must be proud of my team, we showed character, we showed quality and we survived an intense first 45 minutes. Millwall try to use the weapons they have in this team – long ball, with direct play – we showed we can be solid. It’s not an easy place to play football.
“In the second half we played brilliant, we dominated with our style. I’m excited because we are soon going to be fighting for another three points and we must rest and be ready for the next game. We’re going to fight to the end and make our supporters satisfied.”
The support, packed into the away end, were tremendous and the celebrations, after the final whistle were top-notch.
As for the Millwall boss, Neil Harris, he had this to say:
“I feel a little bit hard done by. The goal early in the second half put us on the back foot and the second goal was disappointing – they were really poor goals to give away. It was my fault, really, as we were caught chasing the game and it was a disappointing result in the end.
“We’ve been on a terrific run, the boys have given so much and produced so many good performances. We’ve been beaten by a good side tonight, there’s no doubting that. We’ve got two huge games left.”
Job done I’d say!
