Slavisa Jokanovic believes Fulham have better momentum than Brentford going into the west London derby on Saturday.

The two sides meet at Griffin Park with the Cottagers on an unbeaten run of three games, taking seven points including an exciting 5-4 victory over Sheffield United at Brammall Lane.

Brentford, meanwhile, are trying to get their heads round letting a two-goal lead slip in the last two minutes of injury time in their 2-2 draw with QPR on Monday night.

It looks set to be an exciting tie, but Jokanovic insists his side are full of confidence heading into the game.

He said: “All the teams have strengths, we expect we’re in a better momentum than them and full of confidence.

“The style is similiar and I expect we are going to dominate the game, they don’t enjoy being without the ball like we don’t enjoy and I believe we will take this ball and we will be the team that will attack them.

“In these games, there will be space for both teams and we are going to try use this space better than what they use

“At the end, I expect one good football game and we will see at the end who will be better.”

Fulham's Craven Cottage voted best ground in the Championship and fourth overall

Dean Smith celebrated 100 games in charge of the Bees on Monday night, and the Fulham boss praised the way he’s coached his side since joining.

He added: “He’s a good coach, and all the credit to him - they bring the people from lower leagues and they didn’t start with their best results, but step by step they are getting better and better.

“Now Brentford is a team you can recognise what the coach is doing with them, 100 games is many changes for the team and they build some kind of style.

“I believe he’s done a very good job with this team.”
