"I'm happy we got the points today and I'm sure people back home in the States like to see me doing well," Dempsey told fulhamfc.com.
"The good thing is that after losing at home against Everton we've bounced back with a win away today. Now hopefully we can push on.
"The funny thing is we've played some good football in the last few weeks and not got the results, whereas today we may not have played our best but we got the points. It's crazy how it works sometimes.
"Hopefully we can take some confidence from grinding out a result today and keeping a clean sheet. Now we've got to push. on."
