Jokanovic considers changes after Fulham win

Slavisa Jokanovic was a happy man after Fulham’s 2-0 win at Ipswich on Boxing Day – but hinted at changes for Friday’s trip to Reading.

Goals in either half from Chris Martin and Ragnar Sigurdsson – his first for the club – earned the Whites a deserved three points at Portman Road.

But with two more games in the next week – Fulham also face Brighton next Monday – Jokanovic said he might rotate to keep his in-form squad fresh.

He said: “Fulham is not only 11 players. I need all the squad.

“I need people with character, with ambition and with desire to be successful. I expect those who didn’t participate today to be an option for the next game.

“In front of us, we have a few days to prepare for the Reading game and we are going to choose what is best for us.”

Jokanovic, who has previously urged his side to be more clinical in front of goal, again saw more chances being passed up in the win at Ipswich.

But despite this, he was satisfied with the display and the clean sheet that lifted them to within one place of the play-offs.

“It’s a very good Boxing Day for us,” Jokanovic said.

“We played very well, we scored two goals, we won three important points.

“It’s true we could have scored more to make it a little bit easier but in the end we have to be satisfied with what we showed today.

“We were organised, we were brave, and we were a little bit more solid than is usual for us.”
