Smertin delighted with scoring start at Fulham

Fulham midfielder Alexey Smertin is delighted with his goal scoring start to the season.

"Now I'm looking for deflections, this is my type of goal," he joked with fulhamfc.com. "Two goals, two deflections - but they all count.

"I'm very happy. After playing for Charlton I decided to go back to Russia to settle down with my family but I was disappointed with the level in the Russian Premiership. Compared to English football it's not the same - even though there are many good Russian players.

"I would love to finish my career at Fulham. It's a good team and I feel very comfortable here and I'm very happy. I would love to get into Europe but I know it's difficult because the Premier League is getting better and better every season and it's less predictable."
