Mitro: Magical Night

Wednesday 30 January 2019 15:30

Aleksandar Mitrović believes Fulham’s character fully merited the victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night.

After a below par opening 45, the Whites hit back relentlessly after the restart, smashing in four goals without reply to secure a 4-2 victory.

Mitrović notched a brace in between strikes from Calum Chambers and Luciano Vietto, and his performance will be giving Seagulls centre-backs Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy nightmares for weeks.

“They are tough, tough guys, really strong, tall guys, like every Premier League defender,” Mitrović told fulhamfc.com. “I enjoy competing with different defenders every week, and against Brighton I scored two goals.

“I had good service second half and we played unbelievably. We got four goals, and could have scored a few more, so it really was an unbelievable night.

“After a very bad first half, we tried to give everything second half. We wanted to go out and do everything we could.

“We scored nice and early with the first goal, then the second goal, third goal, and the fourth goal finished the game. We didn’t concede any goals at the end.

“It was really a joy to play in, and the fans were unbelievable. They believed as well, like we believed, and it was a magical night, and hopefully there are more wins to come.

“It was a big game, a big three points. We had an unbelievable second half. We believed, and we fought until the end, and I think we deserved this.”
