Cairney calls for consistency as Fulham go to Leeds searching for first back-to-back wins in four months

Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney is urging his side to find some consistency when they travel to Leeds United tonight.

The Whites were victorious in their last match, a 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic at Craven Cottage on Saturday, but they have not won consecutive games since October.

They go into the game at Elland Road sitting 18th in the Championship, a place and two points behind their opponents, and Cairney, who scored twice on Saturday, has called on his teammates to hold on to that winning feeling.

He said: “It’s all about putting wins together, we need to find some consistency.

“We play well and then at other times we don’t click, if we can find that consistency, we’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

“We need to go to Elland Road full on confidence. If we make sure our attitude is right and we match them in every department, and then hopefully our quality will come through.

“We’ve got a lot of strength in depth and I believe we will score goals.”

After admitting he got his starting line-up wrong against Charlton, Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic is expected to start with the 3-5-2 formation he switched to at half time.

Chris Baird and Michael Madl are expected to start, while Cauley Woodrow and Lasse Vigen Christensen are still missing through injury.

Elland Road will be a familiar setting for a number of the Whites’ players.

Matt Smith, Ross McCormack and Andy Lonergan have all previously played for Leeds, while Luke Garbutt spent eight years at their youth academy.

The corresponding fixture at Craven Cottage in October finished 1-1, with goals from Moussa Dembele and Chris Wood.
