Fulham boss Meulensteen delighted with victory over Norwich

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen was delighted with victory at Norwich City.

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen was delighted with victory at Norwich City.

Meulensteen's side came from behind to beat Norwich 2-1 courtesy of a wonderful winning goal from Scott Parker three minutes from time.

Gary Hooper's deflected effort had given the Canaries the lead but Pajtim Kasami equalised to take the teams in level at the break.

Parker then provided the heroics but even those three points left Fulham in the relegation zone after Crystal Palace and Sunderland also won on the road.

"It could be a very significant goal but we can only tell when weeks and weeks go by," said the former Manchester United coach.

"I'm delighted with Scott scoring the winner because his character and leadership on the pitch has typified the sort of performances we've had over the last couple of weeks.

"The first touch set him up and - boom - he hit it straight on the trigger. It gave John Ruddy no chance."
