Tim Ream was pleased to see Fulham’s patient approach to Saturday’s match bear fruit.
The Whites saw off Nottingham Forest 2-0 courtesy of goals from Lucas Piazon and Stefan Johansen, with the team refusing to panic despite not making the breakthrough until midway through the second half.
“That’s been our game,” Ream said. “We know during this run that we can score goals, and it’s just a matter of being patient and moving the ball and waiting for an opening or a mistake.
“They made those two mistakes and we’re punishing teams right now when they do that.
“There’s always things we can clean up and do better, but to come away with a clean sheet, two goals, three points, and moving up a place in the table, there’s not much you can complain about.”
In the last eight outings, Fulham have dropped just two points to really establish us among the promotion contenders.
“Everything’s just clicking right now,” he stated. “We’re doing good things on both sides of the ball, defensively and in attack.
“We’re putting the ball in the back of the net, we weren’t doing that early in the season and we were conceding some sloppy goals.
“We’ve tightened up quite a bit at the back and we’re finishing teams off, so it’s a combination of those two things.
“We’ve not changed anything, we’ve not done anything different, we’ve stuck with the same style of possession football and it’s just been a matter of conceding less and really finishing our chances.
“We’re so focused on the here and now, this run we’re on, staying in the Play-Offs and trying to push for that second spot.”
