Cauley Woodrow feels a strong period of summer recruitment and the squad buying into the same mindset has transformed Fulham’s prospects this season.

The Whites, who have struggled to survive in their previous two seasons in the Championship, head to second placed Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday with genuine hopes of returning to the top flight themselves. Woodrow believes that Slavisa Jokanovic’s input, both in terms of bringing new faces to the club over the summer and on the training ground, has helped create a greater sense of belief amongst the players.

The striker told GetWestLondon:

We signed 14 players in the summer and that can go one way or another. The boys have settled in really well which is showing on the pitch. I don’t know what’s different as everyone has the same mindest. Results are going well for us and for the team and hopefully that continues.

Woodrow, who has only made eight first-team appearances this season, admits being disappointed by his lack of game time but has vowed to put in the hard graft at Motspur Park and earn another chance up front.

Training is going well. I’m not really playing at the moment and I’m not involved. It’s a difficult time for me and I’ll come through it and get back playing. I’ve got to keep playing hard and do my best and get my chance again soon.
