David Button praised Fulham’s character after they secured what the goalkeeper described as a ‘very important win’ at Nottingham Forest last night.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side moved up to eleventh in the table after a 3-1 win at the City Ground and showed serious resolve to put the setback of conceding a sloppy equaliser to Daryl Murphy just before half-time behind them. The visitors sealed the three points with two late goals from Stefan Johansen and Neeskens Kebano, going back in front just after soaking up a serious spell of Forest pressure.

Button, who made a couple of crucial saves, was delighted with Fulham’s return to winning ways.

It was very important, Saturday was a disappointment but regardless of that result it was important that we came here and won, It was a great result and hopefully we can get some moment going forward.

I think the character was a lot better, as was our work rate, I think we have probably played better and not won but it shows good character in ourselves that we haven’t been our best but were still able to get the three points.

The goalkeeper revealed that he is feeling much more confident between the sticks – something which showed in the way he dealt decisively with a couple of high balls in the first half.

I’m really enjoying it at the moment, I’d like to be a little bit further up the league but I’m happy and hopefully the people watching will be happy with my confidence too.
