Mitrovic then turned it on scoring two goals in the space of four minutes to put the hosts comfortably ahead. Antonee Robinson put the finishing touches on a superb performance.
Fulham’s Marco Silva: “It was an important result for us. It was pleasing to see such a good reaction from ourselves. We spoke about what happened in the last game.” he added. “I was pleased to see how we started the game and we should have scored the second goal to be a little bit more comfortable. QPR had a good reaction. They never give up and unfortunately, we didn’t start the second half the way we wanted, but then it was a fantastic reaction in adversity and we deserved the three points. They are three important points as well.”
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “There was a bit of softness about us in the first half which is very unlike us. You can play all the nice football you like, but in terms of duels and challenges, you’ve got to do the basics. We showed a bit too much respect in the first half.” he added.” [Mitrovic] is a talented forward but he had time to bring the ball down in the box and finish. We had to be tighter on him. He had every chance to bring a lofted cross down and have a strike at goal. I didn’t see Charlie Austin getting that much time today.”
