Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli has hailed the impact of midfielder Kevin McDonald.

The 29-year-old put in a excellent display in the Whites 1-0 victory over Birmingham City at Craven Cottage, a result which saw Slavisa Jokanovic's team move up to 12th in the Championship.

Speaking after the game to GetWestLondon, Bettinelli described the midfielder as 'terrific'.

He said: "The job that Kev (Kevin McDonald) does goes unnoticed a lot, he's terrific in that role and helped the centre-backs out a lot. It was important for us to keep a clean sheet.

"It's back-to-back clean sheets now at home and hopefully we can get another at Sunderland."
