A beaming Aboubakar Kamara told of his delight with his sensational impact off the substitutes bench to grab a point after Fulham went 2-0 down to Hull City yesterday.

The French forward was introduced as a 40th minute substitute after Slavisa Jokanovic became frustrated with the abject nature of Fulham’s first half performance. The former Amiens striker repaid his manager’s faith superbly in the second half, winning and converting an early penalty and scoring a superb equaliser with five minutes to play.

Kamara told Fulham’s official website that he was so pleased to help turn the game around:

I’m happy. I’m very happy. It’s my first two goals, a brace is how you say it in English? It’s good for me and for the team.

It’s important for us a group. I play for myself and for the team as well, and for the team as well, and it’s good when you can have an impact like that a substitute! Step by step I am getting better, and I hope that now I can continue to keep scoring more goals.

The way the game had been panning out, we can be happy with the result. To come back to make it 2-2 when we were 2-0 down makes it a very good point. We always have to keep our confidence high, and if we do that on Tuesday then we can do things on the field against Ipswich.
