Marek Rodak claimed the Man of the Match award last night, as his Fulham side drew 1-1 with Derby County in the Championship.
In the space of six days, Fulham goalkeeper Rodak has given his best and worst performance for the club. His worst came last weekend when he was at the centre of Fulham’s 3-0 defeat at home to bottom-club Barnsley, but his best came at Pride Park last night.
The Slovakian made several impressive saves last night, and of all different types. Diving low to his left, to his right, running back towards his own goal to swipe the ball of the line, keeping corners from swinging over his head – he really did everything last night.

Despite the overall performance coming under the spotlight, Fulham fans were quick to praise Rodak. He’s a been a favourite at Craven Cottage since coming into the first-team earlier this season, and here’s what fans had to say about him after last night’s showing:

Huge credit to Marek Rodak, a brilliant response to his performance against Barnsley. Sorting out a long-term contract extension for him surely has to be one of the top priorities. #FFC
