The Fulham boss was pleased to see the side finally manage to win a game following four successive Premier League draws.

"It was a very important game just before Christmas because we've been playing well recently without winning," he said after the3-0 victory at Craven Cottage.

"We managed to keep the level of our importance up and also to win the three points.

"We missed three gilt-edged chances and the thought came to me that here we go again.

"But after we scored the first goal, we got a bit of luck when we were given a penalty for handball.

"After that second goal I was quite calm."
