Kenny Tete took the positives from Fulham’s goalless draw with West Ham last night – focusing on how Scott Parker’s side dominated much of the London derby.

The Dutch defender, restored to right back after Fulham switched to a back four, was delighted with most of his team’s display against David Moyes’ in-form outfit as the hosts enjoyed most of possession and the better chances but couldn’t find a winner. Tete told the club’s official website after the final whistle:

We played a really good game against West Ham. They are fourth or fifth in the league and we showed our qualities and played really well. We created lots of chances and the only disappointing thing is we couldn’t finish the game. Football is all about details and we have to finish our chances. We need to find the net.

The main positive is we outplayed a top six team. We have to think about that and keep going. It’s always doable. We are in every game we play; we create enough chances and we’ll believe until the last. We came out in the second half looking for a win. We were controlling the game and we were waiting for the goal, it’s a shame it didn’t come. Mentality is really important; we keep saying that to each other. We’re all behind each other waiting for the three points. Hopefully we can keep building.

Fulham now have a rare week’s rest before a trip to Goodison Park next weekend – and Tete knows that the Whites need to turn draws into victories if they are to have any hope of beating the drop.

It’s true we have a more favourable next few games. All these games are tough, but we have a lot of quality. We will never give up. It’s been a heavy month. We had a lot of games, it’s time to recharge and get ready for our next test.
