Fulham assistant manager Steve Kean was delighted to end Fulham’s long wait for a league win with success over Southampton at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Summer signing Tomasz Radzinski scored the only goal to settle a nervy encounter and Kean was pleased with Fulham’s professional performance. The Whites’ second in command told the club’s official website:
“It was good to get the win. Our confidence was good – we did really well against Boston the other night and that brought a bit of a feel-good factor back into things. We were a little bit nervous at the end, but I think that was more about our desperation to make sure we got all three points than anything else.
It was nice to keep the clean sheet. Chris has done a lot of work with the back four over the last few weeks – not massive open-heart surgery sort of stuff, just little tweaks here and there, and he’s made sure that everybody knows exactly what everyone else is doing in given situations, i.e. if a ball is coming down the line and a cross is going to come in, that everybody knows where everybody else is in relation to each other, that sort of thing.”
