Fulham overcame a hard fought Luton side on Wednesday night, as they came out 3-2 victors at Craven Cottage.
There was one man who won the game nearly single-handedly, and that was striker Aleksander Mitrovic who was able to bag a hat-trick for the Cottagers as they moved up to seventh in the Championship, just one place away from the play-offs.
Mitrovic is now sitting pretty at the top of the scoring charts with 11 goals this campaign, a really impressive total considering there have been just 13 games played of the season.
He is a physical presence as well as a brilliant goal scorer and that makes him one of the best talents in the division, and also one of the hardest to defend against.
His fine form gives Fulham hope that they may be able to make an immediate return to the Premier League, especially if others around him can start finding their shooting boots as well.
Here’s how Fulham supporters reacted to Mitrovic netting a hat-trick on Wednesday night…
Is Mitrovic the best striker in the Championship?
And well deserved. Passion, desire, strength, work rate and a goal scorer’s instinct. Pure class sir.

Hat trick for Mitrovic eh? No room for a big striker in a passing, progressive football team. That Fulham must be a right uncultured bunch of hoofers.

Mitrovic is quickly becoming one of my favourite players of all time. First Fulham hattrick and a good way to bounce back. Such an open league, need to keep going and hopefully we can cement a place in the top 6. Onto the long trip to Middlesbrough, COYW! pic.twitter.com/oeNwBihoTZ
