Alex Kacanaklic was delighted to score Fulham’s winner at Wycombe Wanderers in the Capital One Cup last night – and get off the goalscoring mark for the Whites this season.
The Swedish international’s clinical finish from a swift Fulham counter-attack settled a close contest at Adams Park in the Championship side’s favour and the winger felt there were plenty of positives that the squad could take from the victory.
It was good for us to get our first competitive win. I think we played well at times. It was a tough game to play in. They weren’t bad at all, so we’re happy with the win.
It was pretty much as we expected. They were pretty direct at times with big strong players and they worked really hard as a team. They made it pretty hard for us.
I had a couple of chances and a couple of crosses and a goal. It was a quick break, Ben [Pringle] crosses and I score into the top corner. It was a very good break and a nice goal. It was a good ball from Ben. I think we linked up pretty well at times, me and Ross [McCormack] and Ben, Tom [Cairney] and Jamie [O’Hara] so I think at times the attacking football was really good.
Kacaniklic, who was something of a peripheral figure last season until Kit Symons recalled him from a loan spell with FC Copenhagen, has been encouraged by Fulham’s start to the season, which began with a spirited draw at Cardiff on the opening weekend.
The Cardiff game, I think the draw was probably a fair result, we had a couple of chances and we could have finished it off and we let in a goal late. But anyway, a point in the first game isn’t bad. But it was important to get a win and keep a clean sheet against Wycombe. We didn’t keep too many last year so I think we looked pretty strong at the back.
