Eyong Enoh insists Fulham are capable of much better displays after their disappointing performance at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Ajax loanee - who signed until the end of the season on deadline day - was particularly unhappy because he believes Fulham have enough quality in their midst; they just didn't produce any.

The Cameroon international told the official Fulham website: "For me, the disappointing thing on Saturday was not just the result, it was the way we played.

"We were not very good - we didn't play compact, they put us under pressure, we couldn't play our game and get comfortable on the ball."

Four defeats from their last five games has seen Martin Jol's side potentially jeopardise what at one stage seemed like a guaranteed top ten finish. But with three games remaining, the chance to catch Swansea in ninth place is still very much alive.

Enoh, though, is confident the Cottagers can bounce back from Saturday's disappointment and end the campaign on a high.

“We want to make the fans smile again and for us, as a team, it’s important to get that next win because it’s been a while,” he concluded.

That opportunity presents itself in the form of relegated Reading at the weekend. The Royals are destined for the Championship and arrive at Craven Cottage on Saturday with no wins in six.

Although Fulham currently sit halfway up the Premier League table, they are only three points above Newcastle in 16th.

Despite this, Enoh is confident that the positive mentality within the Fulham camp will ensure they avoid being sucked into trouble, with less than a month of the campaign remaining.

“We’ve got a spirit in the team to win all the time, but I think, for us, it’s been missing in the last few games and we’ll have to fight and make sure we get it in the next game,” he said.
