Kit Symons hails Fulham character

20 October 2014

Fulham caretaker manager Kit Symons hailed the spirit of his side after a 1-0 victory over high-flying Norwich City.

The Cottagers triumphed thanks to Sean Kavanagh's first goal for the club in just his fifth appearance, although they had to rely on a slice of luck when Lewis Grabban hit the crossbar from the penalty spot.

The win against the Canaries lifts Fulham within one point of climbing out of the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone.

"They were not top of the table for no reason," Symons said. "At times we rode our luck. It was a display full of character which I was delighted with."

Fulham's goal came in the 22nd minute after a sweeping move from right to left which ended with Lasse Vigen Christensen teeing up Kavanagh, who took a touch before rifling past John Ruddy.

Symons added: "Sean's a player I know very well from the 18s and the Under-21s and I wouldn't wish that ball to fall to anyone other than him. He's got a wonderful left foot."
