Aboubakar Kamara says his confidence is growing after scoring four times in his last two Fulham appearances to boost the Whites’ hopes of making another push for promotion from the Championship.
The French forward added a double during last night’s 4-1 win over Ipswich to his brace that helped Fulham fightback for a point at Hull on Saturday. The striker, who has now six goals since swapping Amiens for London in the summer, told the club’s official website that his recent purple patch in front of goal has inspired him to set high personal targets for the rest of the season.
If I can try to get at least one goal each game that would be a good ratio and a good platform to build from. It’s always good to get on the scoresheet, for me, my family, the team and supporters. It’s important to carry on in a positive way, we can’t stop, there are a lot of matches left and a chance to keep climbing the table.
Kamara admitted to being disappointed by not being able to break the deadlock during a first half that Fulham dominated at Craven Cottage last year – something only compounded when Joe Garner headed Ipswich in front just before half time.
I was a little bit frustrated to begin with seeing as I nearly scored and when I missed my first chance this stressed me a little, however in the second half we rallied and we attacked well which was rewarded in the end. I had the chance to score a hat-trick but it wasn’t to be this time, hopefully next time.
Confidence is hard to come by, but this is achieved by doing the right things in training. You know that one day all the hard work will finally pay off, and this is how we must continue. There is a lot of confidence in the team, my teammates are always encouraging me, even when I missed the chance in the first half they were spurring me on and this is good both for me personally and the team as a whole.
