David Button praised the character of his Fulham team mates as the Whites came away with all three points after beating Nottingham Forest 3-1 on Tuesday night.
A second goal in two games for Aboubakar Kamara gave Slavisa Jokanovic's side the lead before Daryl Murphy's header dragged Forest back into the tie.
Fulham withstood a lot of pressure in the second half but a sublime freekick from Stefan Johansen and a Neeskens Kebano goal ensured the three points would be going back to west London, and Button was pleased with the character he and his team mates showed at the City Ground.
He said: “It was very important, Saturday was a disappointment but regardless of that result it was important that we came here and won,
“It was a great result and hopefully we can get some moment going forward.
“I think the character was a lot better, as was our work rate, I think we have probably played better and not won but it shows good character in ourselves that we haven't been our best but were still able to get the three points.
I'm really enjoying it at the moment, I'd like to be a little bit further up the league but I'm happy and hopefully the people watching will be happy with my confidence too.”
