Kasami pleased with progress

Prior to the 2013-14 campaign, Kasami had made just three Barclays Premier League starts for the Cottagers following his move from Italian side Palermo in 2011.

He has certainly played a full part so far this term, though, being on the field for the duration of the 1-0 victory at Sunderland on the opening day of the top-flight season and scoring the winner - his first Fulham goal.

The 21-year-old Macedonia-born Switzerland youth international also played for the whole of Saturday's 3-1 league loss to Arsenal at home, and, with how things are going personally for him at the moment, Kasami cannot wait for each game to come.

Fulham's next fixture is Tuesday night's Capital One Cup second-round tie at Sky Bet League Two outfit Burton, and, speaking ahead of the match to his club's official website, Kasami said: "Of course the Sunderland and Arsenal results were completely different.

"But personally I'm happy with my development and how I'm doing.

"I'm just continuing to work hard and I'm always looking forward to the next game."

Kasami, who had a spell on loan at Swiss club Luzern last season, was part of a starting Fulham midfield on Saturday that also featured Scott Parker, Steve Sidwell, Damien Duff and Adel Taarabt, with Dimitar Berbatov playing ahead of them up front.

Midfielders Alex Kacaniklic and Giorgos Karagounis were introduced as substitutes along with striker Darren Bent, the Cottagers' new signing and scorer of their goal that afternoon.

Kasami thinks manager Martin Jol has a decent mix of players at his disposal in midfield and feels that, while Fulham needed to be more clinical in attack, Bent should help address that issue.
