According to The London Evening Standard, Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has urged his side to “take control” in the race for the play-offs.

Fulham moved into the top six for the first time in a while after brushing off the challenge of ten man Aston Villa with a 3-1 win at Craven Cottage.

With Leeds United losing at home to Wolves, Fulham jumped into the play-off zone at Garry Monk’s side’s expense.

Now they have a place in the top six, Slavisa Jokanovic wants his Fulham players to concentrate on picking up wins rather than looking at what the other teams around them are doing.

Five teams – Huddersfield, Reading, Sheffield Wednesday, Fulham and Leeds – are competing for four places in the play-offs and the race is hotting up with just three games remaining.

Jokanovic warned his side to focus purely on their next game against high flying Huddersfield.

The Serbian said:

“I’m not thinking about who will be chasing us or which team we will be chasing.

“We need to concentrate on our work and the next game [against Huddersfield].

“At the end we are playing against a top Championship team who are still fighting directly for promotion.

“We will try and take control ourselves.”
