Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic said his side fully deserved their derby victory at QPR.

The visitors won 2-1 at Loftus Road, surviving a late barrage from Rangers following Conor Washington’s injury-time goal.

“I am always happy when we win a derby like this and I am happy for the supporters,” Jokanovic said.

“I believe we deserved it. At the end of the game QPR brought us into their territory and pushed in the box with many players and we survived these complicated moments.

“We suffered in the last few minutes after they scored and fortunately we defended well and won the game.

“They put many people forward and used their weapons and we showed our strength on the field.”

Jokanovic added that Sheyi Ojo had been taken to hospital.

The on-loan Liverpool winger was stretchered off in the second half after falling awkwardly on his shoulder following a challenge from Joel Lynch.
