Slavisa Jokanovic refused to get carried away after Fulham beat fellow relegation strugglers Milton Keynes 2-1 at Craven Cottage.
The home side won their first game since February with strikes from Ross McCormack and Moussa Dembele.
Here are some of the talking points from a crucial win for the Whites.
Fulham need more than just McCormack and Dembele
Ross McCormack, Moussa Dembele are the only ones who look likely to score for Fulham on a regular basis and Slavisa Jokanovic needs to take the pressure off them.
Tom Cairney should have done better with the chances he had against MK Dons and had his shot after 30 seconds gone in it would probably have been a less stressful day at Craven Cottage.
However, it was no surprise to see McCormack and Dembele on the scoresheet as they looked threatening all afternoon.
The Whites, though, may have to plan for life without them as the summer rolls near.
Whites need to be a bit more boring
Fulham are the second highest goalscorers in the division with 59, while leaders Burnley have 63.
They've found the net eight more times than Middlesbrough but the north east club are where they are in the table because they have only conceded 25, which is 40 less than Fulham.
On goals conceded, Fulham are in the bottom three, shipping 65 so far this season. On paper, they should be better defensively yet a critical mistake is made time and time again as was the case today.
While it is entertaining for the neutral as there have been 124 goals scored in Fulham games this season, 14 more than 'second placed' Brentford, Whites fans would rather it was a bit less exciting.
Indeed, goals wise, watching the likes of Hull and Middlesbrough are near the bottom of goals seen but they are challenging for promotion.
Scott Parker proved his worth again by getting stuck in in midfield and allowing the likes of Tom Cairney to thrive going forward.
The former England captain is happy to get his hands dirty but it is his work ethic that drive Fulham forward.
Father Time will, eventually, catch up with the 35-year-old but he still has the talent left in him to be effective at Craven Cottage.
Given Parker is keen to become a coach, it would be worthwhile Jokanovic adding him to his staff while still keeping him as a player for next season, much like his role was under Peter Grant.
MK for the drop?
MK Dons looked like a side who knew they were in deep trouble after the 2-1 defeat and, if truth be told, it should have been a thrashing.
They failed to really threaten Fulham and it was only a defensive error that allowed them back into the game.
It is looking more and more likely that Karl Robinson's side will be joining Charlton and Bolton in taking the plunge into League One.
Time to follow it up
Fulham have won back-to-back games twice all season and they have followed up crucial victories with heavy defeats as they did at Blackburn in February.
The Whites travel to Preston on Tuesday and they will go into the contest as underdogs, given the Lilywhites' strong standing in the league.
A victory would start to ease the fears of relegation and a draw would also been seen as a sign of progress.
A loss, coupled with MK Dons beating Wolves, would mean it's back to square one for Slavisa Jokanovic's side with the Buckinghamshire side facing Rotherham on Saturday.
