Harrison Reed was delighted to back in the Fulham starting line-up as the league leaders bounced back from a rare defeat to beat Peterborough last night – and the midfielder wants the Whites to keep on going.

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s double was enough to overcome a plucky Peterborough side at Craven Cottage and Reed was in no doubt about the importance of the midweek win following Saturday’s reverse at the hands of Huddersfield. Reed told FFC this afternoon:

“It was crucial to show a response and get back to winning ways after a disappointing one on Saturday. It was the perfect opportunity to do that and we managed to take the three points. It shows that we’re level headed and we’re able to show a response. We spoke before the game about wanting to put things right and we did that.”

The all-action midfielder was pleased to be given the opportunity to stake a claim for a regular spot in Marco Silva’s engine room.

“It was great. I want to play every game obviously but we’ve got a great squad and it takes patience sometimes. I have to bide my time, make an impact off the bench. The manager put me back in last night and I was really pleased to do that.”

He feels there is more to come from Fulham, but isn’t looking too far ahead with a tough trip to Cardiff coming up this weekend.

“I think the form under their new manager has been really good. They are proving a difficult team to beat. We will recover today, prepare tomorrow and get ready to go again. It is the same message as it has been all season: take each game as it comes and just keep trying to keep trying to find that form and consistency – and hopefully it stands us in good stead come the end of the season.”
