Hull City boss Phil Brown admits their first season in the Premiership will be a learning process.
"We have got the first three points under our belts and it is something physical to build on," Brown told Sky Sports News on Monday.
"I want the players to have an intelligence level which they can change to any given situation."
Brown has also highlighted Geovanni's equaliser as crucial for providing the confidence to go on and defeat Fulham.
"The first 20 minutes we didn't really cope with the way Fulham passed the ball, but when Geovanni scored that settled us down," added Brown.
"The emphasis is on the cliche of goals change games. Their goal gave them a lift and our goal gave us a lift and we got to half-time level.
"In the second half the fitness and the attitude of the players was first class."
