Tosin Adarabioyo believes the last week could mark a ‘massive’ turning point in Fulham’s season after the Whites picked up seven points from three games to move within a win of safety.
The central defender was delighted with another solid display against Sheffield United last night that capped off a brilliant seven days for Scott Parker’s side. Ademola Lookman’s winner against the Blades followed a battling point at Burnley and a surprise success at Goodison Park. Adarabioyo told the Fulham website that the enormity of beating the bottom side at Craven Cottage was not lost on the squad:
“It was really massive. We all did fantastic. We know where we are in the league and where we want to get to, and those three points are a big step in that direction. It’s one of the turning points to our season. There’s been a few, we’ve been on a good run of form with two wins and two draws. We’ve found some identity and confidence so this could be one turning point, but I think we’ve had one already. Hopefully we can continue to chip away.
“Seven points in a week is massive. We’ve come out of a three-game week so to see us unbeaten is huge for us. Palace coming up is a massive game, it’s another game to look forward to, we’ll try and get some points out of it and keep moving in the right direction.”
Adarabioyo admitted that he will be trying to ignore the views of the pundits and talking heads in order to focus on the task at hand – preparing for another crucial clash against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park next Sunday.
I hope our fans fully believe we can do it after seeing us play. The outside world and media, that’s down to them to say what they want. We’ve shown more than enough to demonstrate we’re capable of doing that. We know what we’ve got left of the season and we’ll look to get the job done.
