Shefki Kuqi was delighted to be among the goals for Fulham's victory over Reading.

The on-loan Crystal Palace striker said: "It was great to get the three points and getting out on the pitch for half an hour has given me a massive boost.

"I knew when I came here that I would have to be patient and wait for my chance. That's why I've been working hard so that when my chance came I would be ready.

"I can't thank the gaffer enough for giving me another chance to play in the Premiership.

"Things didn't work out at Palace. I never got any back-up from the manager Peter Taylor and when things go wrong you need his support. But it didn't happen.

"I was so relieved to move to Fulham. I feel so relaxed and I'm enjoying coming to work."
