Slavisa Jokanovic is pleased that his Fulham side wrapped up victory over Wycombe with time to spare after they were pegged back by Norwich on the opening day.
Goals from Lucas Piazon and Denis Odoi were enough to give the Whites victory over the Chairboys and book their place into round two of the Carabao Cup.
And Jokanovic, who made a host of changes for the tie, was pleased with how his young side performed.
He said: “It was competitive. We played good. We missed a bit of quality in the last passes and in the midfield. We didn't score the goal.
“In the second half, we showed ambition to win the game. It was a quality goal and we arrived at a moment where we scored the second which killed the game and we finished the game in a comfortable way, which we didn't do against Norwich. It's good for confidence.”
Matt O'Riley and Steven Sessegnon, Ryan's twin brother, made their Fulham debuts, earning themselves a spot on the academy honours board.
Jokanovic added: “It's the beginning of the season. The players we used today needed the minutes. I didn't want to change so many players.
“I only took Matt O'Riley off in the last few minutes. We are in an important competition and we are happy that we are fighting in this cup.”
