Philippe Senderos saluted Fulham’s defensive solidity today and says the discipline of the back five goes a long way to explaining the side’s recent good run of form.

The Swiss defender returned to the team for Sunday’s 5-0 romp past Wolves at Craven Cottage, which proved a second successive clean sheet after the win at QPR the previous Saturday. Whilst the likes of Pavel Pogrebnyak and Clint Dempsey are earning the plaudits for Fulham’s recent goal spree, keeping it tight at the back has been the hallmark of the club’s steady progression in recent seasons.

We have a good solid approach to games. It is also a massive help that the guys are running their socks off up front as that really does make our job easier at the back.

We’ve won three games in a row now and that does a lot for confidence. We’ve been working hard and lately our form has been really good so to get the results to go with it is very positive and hopefully we can finish the season on a high.

Our goal at the beginning of the season was to be in the top ten and hopefully now we can do better than just being tenth. We are on a good run and hopefully we can continue that with a good away performance next weekend.

We’ve got enough quality in this squad to look towards the top of the table instead of looking down so hopefully we won’t be looking over our shoulder. But we have to keep putting in performances like we have been doing and hopefully that will see us pick up plenty more points before the end of the season.
