Fulham boss Parker delighted with Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday

Fulham boss Scott Parker was pleased with victory over Carabao Cup opponents Sheffield Wednesday.

First half strikes from Aboubakar Kamara and Bobby De Cordova-Reid did the damage, as a competitive Sheffield Wednesday side were professionally seen off.

“Overall it was a really good performance," Parker said. “Defensively we looked very good, a clean sheet is obviously good to build on.

“We got the two goals for the win, but on another day it probably could have been a lot more. We had some real big chances that we've not managed to put in the back of the net, but overall I'm very pleased.

“We got some minutes in players' legs who needed it, as well as still progressing as a team, so overall a lot of boxes ticked tonight.

“We realise this year we're going to have to try and move the goals around the team a little bit more than we did last year, when we relied a lot on Aleks [Mitrović].

“I'm pleased now that Bobby's got two in two, and that Abou is now off the mark tonight with a goal as well.

“Like I said, there were some good chances created by our front half players which, on another night, could have gone in."
