Fulham defender Tim Ream believes his form has improved because of the way the Whites play under Slavisa Jokanovic.
Last season, the west Londoners were much more vulnerable defensively but, under the Serbian, Ream and co have looked much more solid.
And, with Fulham playing the ball out from the back, the American believes it has lifted his confidence and he is playing to his strengths.
Ream said: “Playing the ball out from the back is a strength of my game and the possession style that we play suits me personally and suits a majority of the squad which is why guys can slot in and out from game to game.
“It's been a confidence boost and something I can hang on to and do well.
“Lately, I've felt very confident both on and off the ball. The team has been playing well so it's always easy for guys to come in when the team is playing well.
“For whatever reason, as a team, we can't get on a run though.”
Fulham face Wigan on Saturday before hosting Nottingham Forest on Tuesday and Ream knows those two games are vital in order to get a play-off push back on track.
He added: “Right now, the league is important so we have to get a good recovery in.
“We have to focus on what we're doing there and the two games that are coming up and do a good job in solidifying our place in the league.”
