Jol thrilled with victory
Ex-Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov netted the only goal of the game after 52 minutes to give the Cottagers a memorable victory against their London rivals at White Hart Lane.
The result lifts Fulham into the top half of the table, with their tally of 36 points all but guaranteeing another season in the top flight.
Jol was happy with his players’ performances and the result:
“It was a great win, that’s exactly what we needed. Especially being at White Hart Lane, to get a win is fantastic,” he told Sky Sports.
“It was a collective thing. In the first half we restricted them and in the second half we played ever so well and should have scored a second goal.
“Twice Jermain [Defoe] had shots and the save [from Schwarzer] was incredible.”
The Dutchman went on to praise his team for their efforts since the turn of the year:
“Since the first of January we have had four wins, three draws and two defeats to the two Manchester clubs.
“We are doing well and the top 10, that is good.”
Fulham are now nine points clear of the relegation zone, with their recent form appearing to have evaporated rumours that they could be sucked into a scrap for survival.
The Cottagers face a trip to QPR next time out, before hosting Newcastle and Aston Villa.
