Slavisa Jokanovic hailed the impact of Aleksander Mitrovic after he scored his second goal in two games.

The on-loan Newcastle man added to Ryan Sessegnon’s opener in a 2-0 win over league leaders Wolves that extended the Whites’ unbeaten run to 12 games.

“We played well without Mitrovic (before he arrived) but now he opens up to us different options,” boss Jokanovic said.

“He’s working in the right direction, holding up the ball a lot for us, and he scored another goal. But underlining that, his team is working well. All players had a very good game.

“I think it’s one of the best games we can find at this level. They are a strong and fast team, (but) we showed we could play against them.

“We showed aggression, we were brave, with great attitude, and we had control of the game, so we must be satisfied.”

The victory cemented Fulham’s place in the top six and closed the gap to five points on second-placed Cardiff, who play on Sunday.

But Jokanovic said: “We are only looking for the next game, and another opportunity to fight for three points.

“This game will soon become part of history and then we will move on to another game. Where we are going to finish, I cannot answer. Really I don’t know.”
