Fulham midfielder Thomas Cairney has taken to Instagram to share an amusing dressing-room video ahead of the Cottagers’ clash with West London rivals QPR on Friday night.
Scott Parker’s side can temporarily move into the Championship play-off places with a win over the Rs this Friday, while a success would also represent back-to-back wins for Fulham for the first time since early October.
The Craven Cottage outfit have experienced a mixed start to life back in the Championship following their relegation last term, but they are still competing at the top end of the table thanks to seven wins from their first 16 games.
The likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Cairney have been vital during many of Fulham’s successes so far this campaign, and the latter has now taken to his Instagram account to provide a behind-the-scenes insight to the Cottagers’ dressing room.
Cairney has shared a clip of a prank being played on full-back Steven Sessegnon, along with a caption jokingly suggesting the 19-year-old is being “bullied in the workplace” by his teammates.
Both Cairney and Sessegnon have been featuring regularly for Fulham this campaign, with the duo having made fifteen and eight appearances respectively, and they could both feature against the Rs on Friday.
Can you see Fulham gaining promotion from the Championship this season?
Parker’s side have made a solid if not spectacular start to life back in the Championship, but a victory over QPR on Friday would surely give the club a huge lift as the season’s midway point draws closer.
Fulham would have perhaps been hoping to be sitting higher in the table at this stage of the season, but they are still very much in with a chance of achieving promotion this term if they can find a consistent run of form.
Cairney has been an extremely important figure for Fulham this term, while Sessegnon has also made an impact during his first full season in senior football, and this amusing video suggest he has now fully integrated into the squad.
