Aleksandar Mitrovic aligns personal Fulham focus following promotion

Aleksandar Mitrovic wants more goals for Fulham this season despite promotion confirmation.

The Cottagers secured their route back to the Premier League on Tuesday night with a 3-0 win at home against Preston North End.

The Serbian scored two first half goals to take his league tally to 40 for this season.

The 27-year-old has set his sights on the Premier League-era record of 42 goals, scored by Portsmouth’s Guy Whittingham.

Sheffield Wednesday’s Derek Dooley set the post-war record for goals in the second tier at 46.

Mitrovic has claimed he wants to keep performing at his best to try and put his name in the history books.

“There are still four games to play, so let’s try to make the number even higher,” said Mitrovic, via Evening Standard.

“I have had great numbers this season, a great season, but that’s with good players around me and the style we play this season.

“We create a lot of chances and score a lot of goals. It’s been an amazing season for the team and myself as well.

“It was nice [to score two more tonight], I’ve scored a lot of goals. I did my job. It’s been an amazing season on a personal level, on a team level, with these fans it has been a special season.”

Only die-hard Fulham supporters will get at least 20/25 on this higher or lower quiz

Is the capacity of Craven Cottage higher or lower than 15,000?

Marco Silva’s side enjoyed a party atmosphere at Craven Cottage as the team secured a third promotion to the top flight in five years.

The previous promotions were earned via the play-offs, but Silva’s team have been a dominant force in the Championship this campaign. 

The London club have earned a route to the Premier League with four games to spare and can secure the title with six more points from their final few games.

Up next for Fulham is a trip to 2nd place Bournemouth, where a win could also seal the league championship.

The two sides meet on April 23.

The Verdict

Mitrovic has blown past the previous Championship record, which was set by Ivan Toney just last season, at 31 goals.

Nobody can really bet against him adding to his tally in the remaining four games of the season.

The Serbian has been electric and ruthless in front of goal and has played a significant role in the team’s dominance over the rest of the league.

Mitrovic is in the form of his career and if he can carry that to the top flight then Fulham will stand a better chance of remaining in the division.
