Fulham caretaker manager Scott Parker was pleased to see his side’s hard graft rewarded with another three points on Saturday afternoon.
The Whites matched Cardiff City’s work rate and that, combined with some extra attacking flair, saw us claim a 1-0 victory at Craven Cottage.
“I think we put a lot of work in, in a short period of time,” Parker said.
“Ultimately the team have been first class.
“At times we probably overload them with information and try to set standards and a mentality about us which Fulham fans want to see, which is a fight and a desire, and certainly that’s what I want to see.
“I feel certainly at this moment in time the team are representing everyone at the Club and they’re doing themselves a good representation as well.
“Like I said, it comes from hard work and determination, being receptive to the information they are getting, and that hard work has been proven in the last three wins and three clean sheets.
It’s paying off.”
There was concern in the first half when Denis Odoi had to be stretchered off, but his Caretaker Manager confirmed it’s not as serious as first feared.
“Denis is ok,” he said. “He obviously had a head injury.
He was out cold for four to five seconds and that is obviously a concern.
“We have to complete a concussion protocol, he’s now on the mend and he is all good.
He stayed and watched the second half. I don’t know fully yet, but I’ve been told he is okay.
“He obviously jumped up straight away and you sometimes become animated and quite aggressive and that’s what happened to Denis, and he wasn’t sure where he was at the time.”
Parker also reserved praise for Sergio Rico, after the goalkeeper claimed his third clean sheet in as many outings.
“Sergio was first class,” he admitted.
“He’s had it a little bit tough this year but certainly in the last five minutes when we were under pressure a little bit, they put [Sean] Morrison up top and put a lot of balls in the box, which I thought we dealt well with the whole game.
“In the end, he has stood up and really earnt us the full three points and the clean sheet, which was pleasing.”
