Harry Wilson hailed a flawless Fulham performance after the Whites scored seven at Blackburn tonight – and he was delighted to get back amongst the goals.

The Welsh winger’s second half double capped an outstanding individual display of ceaseless running that posed Rovers all sorts of problems. Defender Jan-Paul van Hecke was dismissed for a horrid head-high challenge on the former Liverpool wide man, but luckily he suffered no ill effects from what looked a horrendous tackle.

Wilson told FFCTV after the final whistle of how much he enjoyed an excellent evening:

“Fantastic from start to finish. As a team, I thought we were fantastic. The early goal from Keba set us on our way, but I think how we played throughout the game, I felt we deserved. I thought there were going to be goals. I know when they go a man down it was difficult for them. We were just at each other to make sure we kept moving the ball about and the spaces will appear – and when they do, we’ve got to make sure that exploit them and take our chances and we done that.

He was particularly pleased to move to five goals for the season after eight matches without finding the net.

“I’ve been happy with my performances and the team’s been in a good spell which is obviously the main thing, but personally I wanted to make sure that I started to get back on the scoresheet. I was happy to get my two; disappointed I wasn’t able to complete my hat-trick, but to see Keba get two and Rodrigo come on and get two as well was fantastic.”

Wilson wants Fulham to keep the winning run going at Peterborough on Saturday.

“To come here on a cold Wednesday night, it could have easily been a banana skin for us to slip up. But to come here and have such a convincing win, I think it shows what a good spell we’re in at the minute. We’ve got to make sure that we do the same on Saturday and then we go into the international break and the players go away. The ones that who don’t make sure we train hard to make sure we’re ready to go again.”
