Harry Wilson has insisted that Fulham will not be taking a lowly Leeds side lightly ahead of Saturday’s early kick off at Craven Cottage.

The Welsh winger, whose first league goal of the season, set the Whites on their way to a first win in six matches at Everton last weekend poured cold water on the idea that Leeds’ concession of eleven goals in their last two games makes the weekend fixture a foregone conclusion.

He told FFCTV:

On both of them occasions, we played really well. To go away there early on in the season, we went a goal behind in that game, to pull back in the way that we did and score the goals that we did was great. The FA Cup win wasn’t comfortable – they had their chances in that game. We know what a dangerous team they can be and, similar to Everton, they are down there and they’ll be scrapping for their lives. We know that they’ll be coming here and giving it their all, but, as always when we play at home, if we play well – we are confident of getting the result.

Wilson revealed that confidence in the Fulham camp is high after their superb showing at Goodison Park.

“It was an important game for us. Of late, we’ve not been on the best of runs, so we were desperate to get back to winning ways. Going there and the situation they were in, we knew it was a must win for them but, in our dressing room, it was a must win for us to get that winning back and make sure we finish the season strong.

He was particularly pleased with the quality of his own strike, which came as Marco Silva’s side were under the cosh at the start of the second half.

I think it was a pretty good team move. Kenny’s ball to the back post and then Wili showed his quality in setting it back – for me, it sat up lovely for me to run onto with my left foot. I’d missed a couple before that: the one that hit the post that led to first goal, but the one before that I was disappointed not to do better with. For any ex-Liverpool player and a Liverpool fan to score against Everton, is a great feeling.

For the majority of the season we’ve played great football and the results have been good. I don’t think we’ve really gone through a spell where we’ve gone so long without a win, so we were all desperate that we got that winning feeling back. When you’re not winning and results aren’t going your way, the confidence can be affected within the squad. For us, it was about going out there, getting back to the way that we play, putting in a good performance and, most importantly, getting that win.

Wilson praised his Welsh international team-mate Dan James, who will miss out a reunion with his parent club on Saturday, for his selfless showing on Merseyside.

That’s a killer for DJ! He deserved his goal because up until that moment, his work off the ball, getting us up the pitch and his runs in behind gave us a great platform to build from. I think it was a great ball from Kenny, he showed his pace and movement in behind and when it fell on his left foot, it was a great finish. I’m sure whoever comes in for him will be looking to put in a great performance.
