Floyd Ayite says confidence is high in the Fulham camp heading into the Championship play-offs and the winger is aiming to cap his first season in English football with a ‘beautiful’ promotion.
The Togolese winger has emerged as one of the key performers in Slavisa Jokanovic’s side as the Whites mounted an incredible second half of the season surge to finish in sixth place. Ayite, who quickly established himself as a first-team regular having moved to Craven Cottage from Bastia last July on the recommendation of Tony Khan’s ‘two-boxes ticked’ statistical scouting methodology, was a key goal threat for Fulham, finding the net nine times in 31 league appearances.
The 28 year-old told GetWestLondon’s Fulham reporter Ryan O’Donovan that he was really looking forward to the special challenge of the play-offs:
It would be beautiful for my first season to get promoted. This is the biggest game in England, it’s my first season and to make the play-offs is beautiful – it’s a massive game, yes, and every player in the Championship wants to play in the play-offs.
We are in a good place after making the play-offs and we want to win them. We want to make a good impression in this game and we want to win every game in front of us and why not get promoted? We are confident and it is good for the life of every player – ever player in the Championship wants to be in the play-offs and why not get promoted?
