The Aleksandar Mitrovic bandwagon rolls on at Craven Cottage.

Tuesday night saw Fulham pick up their latest win, beating Leeds 2-0 in West London.

Once again they were indebted to the Newcastle loan striker, who got an assist for the first goal and scored the second himself.

This makes it eight goals in his last eight matches for Mitro.

He has also contributed to a remarkable run of results since his arrival, with Fulham picking up 27 points from a possible 33 in the games Aleksandar Mitrovic has featured in – three draws and eight wins.

This has ensured at least a play-off spot for Fulham and with six games to go they still have some hope of catching Cardiff, currently five points ahead in the second automatic promotion spot.

Mitrovic 8: Physical presence caused a problem and got an assist for the first goal. Got himself a goal when he got on the end of a lethal Fulham break.’

BBC Sport:

‘Fulham showed why they are the Championship’s form side with an impressive win over mid-table Leeds.

They dominated the early chances and eventually went ahead when Kevin McDonald deflected in Aleksandar Mitrovic’s header from a corner.

The Serbia striker put the game to bed as he ended a flowing counter-attack after Caleb Ekuban spurned one of Leeds’ best chances when put through.’

Slavisa Jokanovic:

“We’re at the point of the season where we can still try to be successful, but we won’t the final result know until the end of season.

“I am proud of how hard my team is working and how they try to push to win these games. I am proud because they’ve never given up.

“I don’t know if we can catch Cardiff. I really can’t answer this question. I only care about my team and that’s it.”
