David Button admits he was always confident that Fulham would win at Newcastle but didn't expect them to do it in the manner they did.
A first half strike from Tom Cairney and a brace from Ryan Sessgnon ensured Slavisa Jokanovic's side did the double over the league leaders while closing the gap to the play-offs to two points.
The stopper had very little to do in truth, but he was quick off his line when needed whilst also showing good hands to snuff out any Newcastle crosses, but he will be disappointed to concede to a late Daryl Murphy strike.
But that aside, Button was pleased with the way the side performed and has challenged them to use this as a springboard for the rest of the campaign.
He said: "It was a pleasure to watch and the lads were brilliant from start to finish and we deserved the win.
"I was confident that we would win and give them a good game but I don't think anyone expected us to go 3-0 up away at a place like this so credit to everyone who is involved and hopefully we can use this as a springboard for the rest of the season.
"Unfortunately we didn't keep a clean sheet today but everything else was pretty solid and hopefully the team have confidence in me and that allows them to focus on their own game.
"As has been the case a lot this season, the amount of ball we have and the way we play means I won't have a load to do so I just need to concentrate and make sure I'm there when called upon.
