Dan Burn was delighted after Fulham recorded their first win under Slavisa Jokanovic as the Whites crushed QPR by three goals to one.
Goals from Ross McCormack, Moussa Dembele and Tom Cairney gave Fulham a convincing win over their west London rivals.
And the defender was delighted to get the three points ahead of an intense run which sees the Whites play four games in the next two weeks.
Burn said: “It's massive to open the account under the new boss. Performance wise, we've improved massively and should have got something from Hull and we should have beaten Derby.
“It's important to get the three points as we've got four games in two weeks; five including Saturday.
Since the 1999/2000 season, Fulham have beaten QPR eight times out of 10, scoring 23 goals in the process and have conceded only five.

This season has seen the Whites put seven goals past Rangers and concede just one and Burn believes the two derby games are among the club's best performances of the season.
He added: “We seem to love playing QPR, especially this season. They have probably been two of our best performances of the season.
“It doesn't matter who it's against, it's more the fact we've got the three points after a long wait and we probably should have had more from the last few games. Everyone is really glad we've got the win.”
The only disappointment was Fulham failed to keep a clean sheet for the first time since October 17 as Tjarron Chery scored a consolation in stoppage time and, for a proud defender like Burn, took a bit of the gloss of a fantastic win.
He explained: “I think the disappointing thing is the fact we conceded again. We should have had a clean sheet. I'm not happy with that to be honest.
“We scored three but I would have liked a clean sheet. I feel we're more solid and not giving away as many chances.
“We keep the ball really well. We played a back three today that did quite well and took them by surprise.”
