Fulham winger Neeskens Kebano was delighted with a fine week’s work after Fulham hit Bristol City for six after scoring seven at Reading on Tuesday.
The Congolese winger scored twice as the Whites came from behind to beat the Robins and return to the top of the table. Kebano told FFCTV after the final whistle that he felt stringing together a winning run was vital after Fulham’s disappointing December.
“I’m very happy, especially because we have restarted with the victories which was very important for us. In December, we didn’t get any wins. Now we have two wins in a row and let’s try to get the third one on Tuesday. We had a quite long break. When you have a tough game, you want to bounce back as soon as you can, but we had to wait. We just prepared our weapons to come back even stronger and with more will. I think that’s what we are showing these days.”
Kebano was modest about his sensational second goal, when he produced a brilliant bit of control and fired in from a tight angle after turning on a sixpence.
“Honestly, I only had one thing on my mind. I knew that Tos would get that ball because he was taller than anyone on the pitch. When the ball came, I tried to take my touch like towards the goal. I got a bit lucky I have to admit it. When you see what I missed after that, wow. Unfortunately, it [scoring a hat trick] is not today – hopefully it is in the coming weeks.”
He reiterated that perhaps the most encouraging element of Fulham’s big win was the fact that they came from behind to register a victory for the first time this season.
“We knew from the first minute what we wanted. Even if we conceded two goals, we knew we had the resources to come back in the game and that’s what we did.”
