Aleksandar Mitrovic equaled the all-time Championship record for goals in a season as Fulham produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. He scored a header in the 57th minute to help extend the away side’s lead at the top of the table. Although Mitrovic was hardly involved until the goal, he was alert when needed.
Hull’s Shota Arveladze: “If we would have got a point I believe everyone in the ground would have said that we deserved it. They are the best team in the league. We tried to stop them and to defend as a team and attack as a team, which left me very happy. I’m proud of the boys and I have to give them a lot of credit. The fans have seen a good football game when both teams tried to play nice, attractive football. There’s a lot to take from this performance.”
Fulham’s Marco Silva: “We started really well and we pushed them back straight away – which was really important. I think we controlled most of the situations in the game. But after the first 15 minutes, the game became much more balanced. We changed some details at half-time, and then in the second half, we started well again. We kept good aggression and that was one of the big things to see. I am really happy for the team. I’m really pleased for the players and the fans. It was a big win.”
