JOHN Mousinho believes that Fulham are better than their league position suggests after they beat Burton Albion last night and feels Albion can take positives from the game.

The Brewers suffered their fifth successive home defeat as they fell 2-0 to Fulham, with Stefan Johansen and Scott Malone providing the goals for the play-off contenders.

Despite having the better of the chances in the first-half, Burton were unable to take the lead, with David Button standing firm in the Fulham goal to deny Lloyd Dyer after he was sent in on goal.

Mousinho feels that Fulham deserve credit for their performance, but that the Brewers can also take positives away from the game.

“I thought they were excellent,” Mousinho said.

“I think their league position probably lies a bit. I think that it has taken their manager a couple of months to really get them going.

“They certainly had a good game plan and executed it well. I think, having said that, we came in at half-time and were really pleased with how things had gone.We maybe didn’t have the possession that we would have liked, I think that was our own fault as we didn’t take enough care when we had the ball. But overall we were pleased but we got done with a goal just after half-time, which was a terrible time to concede.

“I think after that we had to chase the game a bit, obviously being at home, and got opened up a couple of times. 

"Credit to Fulham, they were a really good side, but we will still take positives from the game."
