Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic insists his team have more to give, after producing a slick footballing display to end Ipswich Town’s 100% record in the Championship at the weekend.

The Cottagers strolled to a 2-0 victory at Portman Road, thanks to goals either side of half-time from Neeskens Kebano and Rui Fonte, their midfield three of Stefan Johansen, Tom Cairney and Kevin McDonald, plus wing-backs Ryan Sessegnon and Ryan Fredericks all in scintillating form.Town boss Mick McCarthy conceded that Fulham ‘Absolutely bashed us’, but Jokanovic said: “We believe we can play better.

“We didn’t start the season like Ipswich did, but there’s a huge number of games still in front of us.

“I expect we can start to be more positive now. We know we’re not at our best level yet and we’ve made costly mistakes at the beginning of the season.

“We showed we didn’t forget how to play good football. There is space for us to be better.”

The victory was Fulham’s first of the season, after an indifferent start, and Jokanovic is hopeful his side can continue to improve after the international break.

“Luck doesn’t exist in football. If something a little different happened then we could have beat Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday, Jokanovic added.

“It (the international break) is a good time for us to push forward and recover our spirit.
