Slavisa Jokanovic: "We played good football"

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic speaks of his delight after his side secure their first Championship clean sheet in four months.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has revealed his delight after the club kept their first clean sheet in 21 league matches with a 3-0 victory over Charlton Athletic yesterday.

A brace from Tom Cairney and a first goal from January loan addition Michael Madl gave the Cottagers all three points to lift them to 18th in the Championship and nine points clear of the drop zone.

"We played good football today," Jokanovic told the club's official website afterwards. "In the first 45 minutes we found many difficulties and Charlton troubled us many times. It's probably my mistake; we tried to play from the middle. I killed Ryan Fredericks and Luke Garbutt and didn't find the right position for them. We scored the goal in the first 45 minutes but I wasn't so happy so decided to switch the structure and we played better football in the second 45 minutes.

"After winning 3-0, after getting a clean sheet, after scoring a set-piece goal, we can be satisfied with our performance today. We can be satisfied, we can be happy with what we offered today for our supporters in our stadium.

"It's not easy to finish the game without conceding a goal. It's great news for us and it's great news to score a goal off a set-piece. It's important, it's not easy to always score three goals to win a game, sometimes you need to win 1-0 or something similar. It's good for our confidence."

Jokanovic's charges are next in action at Leeds United on Tuesday night before they welcome promotion-chasers Middlesbrough to Craven Cottage next weekend.
