Fulham forward Aleskandar Mitrovic has warned Hull City that he is hungry for even more goals after taking his season’s tally to thirty with a brace in the midweek win over Millwall.

The Serbian striker appears a man transformed under Marco Silva and is now just one strike short of equalling Ivan Toney’s Championship record in mid-February. Mitrovic, who moved in the top ten of all-time leading Fulham goalscorers, told FFCTV that his insatiable appetite for goals wasn’t satisfied by his double against the Lions on Tuesday night:

“It was a good win. It was a good performance all round. It was another London derby, I think we deserved to win. We move on to another important game on Saturday.

I am happy with the two goals, happy with the win as well and the performance. I am happy with thirty goals but I’m always hungry for more. I’m trying to do what the manager wants me to do for the team – that’s my job. To be honest, I feel good on the pitch, I feel good in this system and I feel good with this manager. I think everyone in the team feels the same way.”

Mitrovic also showcased his creative side with another beautiful pass playing in Harry Wilson for Bobby Decordova-Reid’s third goal late on. The Fulham forward says he has developed an instinctive understanding with the Welsh winger that is certainly paying off in the final third.

“Since he came in, we click. We know each other’s movements, we play without seeing each other – this is something that we practice on the training pitch. It is something the manager we wants from us, we practice and I think the more we repeat it the more it happens. It was similar action in the City game and hopefully we can create more goals and chances.”

Despite Fulham have built up a six-point cushion at the top of the Championship, Mitrovic knows the Whites will face a strong challenge at the MKM Stadium on Saturday with Hull galvanised by the arrival of new owners and a new manager in Shota Arveladze. He insists there will be no complacency despite the hosts’ lowly league position:

“They are a really tough side – they showed that in the two games when they beat Blackburn and Bournemouth. They are a tough team, an organised team. They have a manager, a new owner. It is always a tough place to go there, they have good fans and a good stadium. There are no easy games in the Championship. But again, no matter who is the opposition we well focus on ourselves, on our game and if we do what the manager wants we will play good football and we will have a good chance to win the game.”
