Slavisa Jokanovic comes from the school of manager comments where one game at a time is king.

But even the Fulham boss reckons Whites now start to look at a top six place after a 2-0 bounce-back win at Bristol City, especially after the 3-0 defeat to Spurs at the weekend.

“I must be satisfied with the performance and the change of focus after the FA Cup exit on the weekend," he said.

“We moved the ball well and created a lot of chances. We could have scored more goals in the first half but we lacked the killer instinct in the final third: I know we have to be more clinical in those situations.

“We knew it was going to be a tricky game as Bristol City needed the three points but we followed our style of play. It is a very good night for us as we kept a clean sheet and we played well.”

Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon opened the scoring on 17 minutes, and the manager made no secret of his admiration for the young midfielder.

“Lucas Piazon is a good example of someone who works hard and shows a lot of ambition - he played an important role in our performance tonight.”

“Our target tonight was to try and cut the distance between us and the teams above.

"The Championship is famous for not knowing what is going to happen in the future. We cannot be sixth on Saturday, but we will try to close the gap.”

And the match...

Goals from Lucas Piazon and Tom Cairney was the perfect Fulham tonic as they bounced back from FA Cup defeat to Spurs on Sunday.

The suffering Robins were no match to a Whites unit who passed the home side out of the game long before the final whistle.

Fulham first mesmerised City to open the scoring on 17 minutes.

Stefan Johansen started the move to find Cairney who in turn squeezed the ball through the eye of the needle for Piazon to run on and slot right-footed past the keeper.

Robins had a chance to level from a great flighted cross, but Milan Djuric's header was over when it was easier to hit the target.

Jens Hegeler saw his header fumbled by keeper David Button - but the chance was hacked clear.

Whites reasserted domination when Piazon clipped the outside edge of the post, and seconds later the marauding Denis Odoi got a foot on a Kebano cross that inches wide.

A demoralised City pressed the self-destruct on 54 minutes when a poor pass-out from keeper Fabian Giefer to right-back Adam Matthews was picked off by Floyd Ayite, handed to the merciless Cairney, who thumped a sublime hit into the top corner for 2-0.

Two tired sides played out the remainder, but the reward for Fulham is a move up the Championship table to seventh - one place outside the play-offs.
