Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic took to Instagram to share his delight at his side’s 3-2 over Luton Town in the Championship last night.
Scott Parker would’ve been a very happy manager after his Fulham side rectified their weekend disappointment at Stoke with a win over Luton at the Cottage last night.
Mitrovic scored three goals in the match to take his tally to 11 – he’s now scored three more than any other player in the Championship (Ollie Watkins is the league’s second highest-scorer with eight so far this season).
The win took his side to 7th in the table, level on points with Preston in 6th and only two points from the automatic promotion places.
Fulham’s season so far has been relatively mixed. Their past two games are a prime example of their inconsistency – falling short to relegation-threatened Stoke before putting three past a hardy Luton Town.
Defensive issues are still present for Parker, but he can rest easy knowing that he has a proven goal-scorer in Mitrovic leading the line for them.
He’s a valuable striker at this level – some think he’s the best there is in the second-tier.
Is Aleksandar Mitrovic the best striker in the Championship?
If Fulham want a hasty return to the top-flight, they’ll need Mitrovic to continue his scoring form for another 33 games, and hope that he doesn’t pick up an injury in that time too.
Fulham fans were quick to jump on Mitrovic’s Instagram post, and here’s what some of them had to say:
