Scott Parker was delighted with the way in which his side reacted to relegation and felt his team thoroughly deserved maximum points against Everton.
Goals from Tom Cairney and Ryan Babel was enough to put an end to the visitors’ recent unbeaten run.
“It’s been a while since we’ve won a match and it was fully deserved today. I thought we were superb from start to finish. That was the most pleasing thing,” explained Parker.
"The result was a by-result of the work we’ve done during the last nine days and the lads have been fantastic in their application. It was a big three points for us.
"As a Club - the staff, the fans, everyone involved – we haven’t had a lot to shout about really and albeit we’ve been relegated, I hope that today eases that a little bit. Fulham’s Caretaker Manager gave credit to each and every fan, who helped push his side to victory.
"The crowd were amazing I thought,” Parker continued.
"At Watford they stayed behind after the team had been relegated.
"It’s cliché but the fans were fantastic and Craven Cottage was alive, and it was probably set about by the players.
"The players took the front foot and that got the crowd behind us. From the start to finish, I thought we were superb. If ever the focus was on this team, it was now.
"We realised the challenge of staying in the Premier League was going to be tough.
“After getting relegated it would have been quite easy and the questions have not been asked of me in my press conferences and you wonder if your players are still up for it, up for the fight or are they on the beach. Ultimately, today they answered those questions."
"It would have been easy to not perform but the players proved that wrong really, showing real fight and determination."
