Fabio Carvalho feels Tuesday’s thumping win at Reading was the perfect way to reassert Fulham’s Championship promotion credentials.

The young playmaker was delighted with the manner of the Whites’ victory in Berkshire as well the fact that Fulham found the net more regularly. He told FFCTV that the squad had been determined to put things right following a disappointing December:

“Like we discussed during training we haven’t scored a lot of goals previously. We beat Bristol City 1-0, but in the weeks before we had the break we haven’t scored a lot of goals. A win like that yesterday and the way we played was good. It was good for the confidence – not just for myself but the whole team. It was good to get a few goals and to get the win in the league as well.

We are at our best when we have self confidence and self belief like Marco said today. It is good to believe in ourselves and play our game. When we do play our game, when we are at our best there’s not many teams that can lay a glove on us. Hopefully, this is the start of something new, the start of something that we’ve been missing the last few weeks and we’ll crack on from there.”

Carvalho hopes that Fulham can return to the sort of scintillating form that saw them start the season in sensational fashion under Marco Silva and underlined the squad’s thirst for victories.

“There’s nothing wrong with drawing games, but that’s not what we are here for. We’re here to win games and to get promoted, which is what we ultimately want to do. Being in the Premier League is where we want to be and where we deserve to be.”

We’re just going to take every game as it comes and hopefully we can get back to the form with which we started this season. We focus on our game first and whatever gets thrown at us, we just deal with it. We have to be ready for what we expect and what we are not expecting. We’ll be up for it. Whatever happens, I’m pretty sure we’ll be ready.”
