Aboubakar Kamara believes his confidence – and that of the Fulham team – is growing after he scored twice to beat Exeter and send the Whites into the third round of the League Cup.

The French forward’s brace gave Fulham a comfortable win over the League Two outfit at Craven Cottage last night and he feels that the victory will boost morale in the camp ahead of Saturday’s tough trip to Brighton. The 23 year-old told Fulham’s official website:

It’s good to score the two goals, it gives us confidence. It’s great for everyone, for me and the whole team. We’re all here to support each other. It’s important to take your chance. When a coach decides that you are ready to play, then you have to show that you will repay his faith in making that decision. Also, it’s good for my own confidence to score goals.

Kamara admitted that facing lower league opposition was far from easy but he was also determined to take his chance to impress Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic.

It’s not easy, mentally it’s not easy, you really have to apply yourself. It’s right that they are a lower league team but they came here with the intention to win so we had to respect them, which is what we did, but we also had to show that we wanted to win as well.

It’s a long season, a very long season. The first two games of course were difficult, but there are so many matches left. We have to be solid and now just have that belief that we can carry on this good form.
