Bobby Decordova-Reid was delighted to come off the bench and earn a point in Fulham’s top-of-the-table clash with Bournemouth last Friday and wants to continue their ten match unbeaten run at Luton this weekend.

The former Bristol City forward linked up with fellow substitute Tom Cairney to create a late equaliser for Tosin Adarabioyo against the Cherries and Decordova-Reid told FFC TV this afternoon that Marco Silva’s changes illustrated the importance of Fulham’s strength in depth.

“I think that’s the squad’s there for. When we’re called upon, we’ve got to be ready and to make a difference. We needed a goal and so we kind of had to take that risk to get it.

Decordova-Reid revealed that he is now fully fit after being struck down by the bug that swept through Motspur Park after he returned from international duty with Jamaica and is hoping to make more crucial contributions to Fulham’s promotion push.

“I came back from international duty and wasn’t too well at the time. I know I had to bide my time until I get back into the squad and the minutes I get, I’ve got to be ready to do good for the team. I’m good now. I’m getting back to my full fitness and hopefully I can get on the pitch and show what I can do.”

He feels that Fulham have done very well to put together a ten-match unbeaten run in a division as demanding as the Championship, but won’t be taking Luton lightly.

“Very difficult. I didn’t even notice we were ten matches unbeaten. We take every game as it comes, try and put it in a performance. If we get the three points or a point, we’ll take it and move on.

I don’t think you can take that into consideration in the Championship – every game’s different, every team can bounce back. We’re fully focused, ready for the game and ready to get three points. Listen, we’re ready for whatever any team brings. We respect every team as well and how they play: we’ll go out there to play our football and win the game.”
