Ben Pringle has urged his Fulham team-mates to push on after recording their first league win of the season at Rotherham United yesterday afternoon.
The left winger notched his first Fulham goal from close range against his former side to give Kit Symons’ men an early lead at the New York Stadium and a penalty from Ross McCormack and Cauley Woodrow’s injury-time clincher ensured that the visitors picked up their first three points of the new campaign.
Pringle, speaking to Fulham’s official website after the final whistle, felt the afternoon had gone to plan:
Three goals and three points, you can’t ask for much more. After two straight wins we want to keep going but at the same time it’s good to regroup now during the international break.
In the last two games we’ve looked a lot more solid. The team is starting to gel. They’ll probably be a few more additions next week and I’m sure those players are only going to add to the squad.
It [his opening goal] was a strange feeling initially, but don’t take anything away from it, it was a goal. I’ve got a new team now and we got the three points, that was the most important thing. Me and Tom Cairney share a room together and he said, ‘listen you’re going to score tomorrow and it will be a tap in off a rebound.’ I said, ‘those are the best ones, those are the ones you want to score.’ So I was delighted to put it in the back of the net.
I thought we played well. We always looked dangerous going forward, we’ve got some good players in the midfield and up top. We always looked a threat.
