Fulham midfielder Alex Kacaniklic is eager to make his mark at Craven Cottage this season.

The 21-year-old impressed during a loan spell at Watford last year and made his Cottagers debut on his return from Vicarage Road.

"Last year was a really good six months for me, first the loan deal to Watford and then coming back to Fulham and getting some games here," he told the Fulham Chronicle.

"The loan spell gave me the opportunity to play first-team football. Reserve-team football is one thing, but first-team football is where it counts.

"I really enjoyed myself and am pushing for a place in the team for this year."
