Slavisa Jokanovic believes that Gohi Cyriac will provide Fulham with more firepower after his deadline day loan move from KV Osstende.

Matt Smith's departure made it essential for the Whites to sign the speedy 26-year-old striker, and Jokanovic was pleased to add the Ivory Coast international to his squad.

That said, deadline day was a case of what might have been for Fulham as they missed out on other targets.

Jokanovic said: “I was expecting more, but it's logical if I decide to let Matt Smith leave and send Cauley Woodrow and Stevie Humphrys on loan.

“The minimum we can do is bring in a player who can cover this position. He's yet to train with us but I expect he can help us in the last 18 games. I expect his main strengths to be scoring goals.

Bonjour! Gohi Cyriac

Jokanovic was critical of Fulham's recruitment strategy in the summer but opted to retain a dignified silence when asked for his views on their January work.

He added: “I don't want to talk about recruitment. I'm proud of the people working with us. The two new players can help us in this period in front of us.

“It's a credit for the people who played today, on the bench and in the stand. This squad will try and take important steps.”
