We get to go to the seaside to take on Brighton at their place this weekend
Our performance against Forest was one of the best I’ve seen this season, we could have scored two or three more than we did and apart from a 10 minute spell in the second half, I believe we completely controlled the game.
Forest were very unlucky loosing both centre backs early in the game, in truth I don’t think it made a great difference.
Willian’s goal must be up there with some of the greatest goals scored at the Cottage?, Manor Solomon getting his first, in front of the Hammersmith End, was also a very special moment.
Mitro wasn’t at his best however if not for an inspired Keylor Navas, would have scored yet another outstanding effort, I hope that he was subbed for tactical reasons rather than injury.
Tim Ream, once again, proved that age is just a number with some perfectly timed interceptions, he just “reads the game” so well.
It was good for the two new boys to get a run out, I’m guessing that we’ll see far more of them in future games, I can’t wait to see Mitro and Lukic link up on a regular basis.
For the longest time that I can remember, beating Forest on Saturday gave us “the double” over a Premier League team, we have another opportunity for a “double” against this weekends opponents.
Brighton are also having a fantastic season, ahead of us only on goal difference, and will feel a little hard done by only getting a draw against Palace?
How many of us would have thought that this game would have been between 6th and 7th?
Brighton – WWDWD
Fulham – WLLDW
Our recent record against Brighton is quite close with 3 wins, 5 losses and 3 draws, we won the home tie 2-1 last August.
Assuming no further injuries my team would be…
