Having recently signed an extension with the club up to and including the Brentford game in December, fulhamfc.com caught up with James Husband after the match against Reading.
James described the Fulham changing room as “happy and relieved” after a superb final 40 minutes, in a match which featured a huge number of “ups and downs.”
After going two goals behind in the early stages of the second half, the Whites produced a monumental comeback, scoring three times in six minutes to turn the match completely on its head and ultimately leading to a victory which now sees Kit Symons’ men unbeaten in four outings.
“We knew we had let ourselves down in the first half,” Husband told the official website. “We were all guilty of being below par. Then at the start of the second half they got a goal after sloppy play from us.”
The first goal on the comeback trail for Fulham was a spectacular solo effort from Ross McCormack less than 60 seconds after an Orlando Sa strike had doubled the Royals’ lead, and Husband was quick to acknowledge the importance of the timing.
“You need moments like that when you a losing the game to give the boys belief,” he explained. “As soon as that goal went in you saw how the team suddenly believed, and within six minutes we were 3-2 up.
“It all happened so fast. We did not give them any time to settle and we didn’t let them get their shape back, which was brilliant for us.”
This weekend Fulham face another tough test as they travel to Aston Gate to take on Bristol City, who have only lost once in the last five themselves, and Husband knows that another tricky 90 minutes awaits his side.
“Every game in the Championship is going to be tough, especially away from home,” he stated. “They have a different shape and approach. But we’re looking forward to it and hopefully come Saturday we will be flying again.”
