Slavisa Jokanovic is getting used to this.

For the second time in four days, Fulham won 3-2 but had to do it the hard way in the face of a stout Nottingham Forest performance.

Neeskens Kebano was again the provider of the goal that clinched things.

But the Whites head coach is going to watch his beard go appropriately white if it carries on like this.

We didn’t play our best today,” he said. “We didn’t play a brilliant game, but at the end after a very soft start to the game where we found some problems, we overcame this situation to win.

Lit up in lights: The Craven Cottage scoreboard

“These last two games at home we conceded four goals. Both teams put us in stressful situations without pushing us in the box to defend. We made mistakes and after this kind of situation it’s not easy for us.

“We need to do better in this kind of situation. I have to be happy with the last 10 minutes when they pushed and took the risk and sent on many strikers in the pitch. We were solid and strong enough to survive this.”

He added: “We changed our tactic after 20-something minutes because it was very clear our plan didn’t work at the beginning. We weren’t good enough.

Joy! Neeskens Kebano gets that winning feeling

“The last two games he’s (Kebano) been an important impact player. He’s brought us four points.

“It’s important that on the back of the Africa Cup, he is working hard; he is fighting for a place in the team."
