Fulham winger Dejagah wants top-half spot after Tottenham win

The Iran international has expressed his joy after the Cottagers overcame Spurs to move into 10th in the Premier League, and is hoping they can now improve and move up the table
Ashkan Dejagah has expressed his delight at Fulham's win over London rivals Tottenham and is eyeing a top-10 finish for the Cottagers this term.

The winger played the full 90 minutes in the victory at White Hart Lane and was eager to stress that Martin Jol's side can now use that success as a springboard and end their season on a high.

He told the club's official website: "We were very happy because it was a big game and it’s not easy to win against Tottenham.

"We played good football and we stuck together as a team from the first minute. We fought all together on the pitch and that was very important.

"It was great, also, to keep another clean sheet. All the world knows that Tottenham have good players; Gareth Bale, Emmanuel Adebayor, many players. But I think we played together very well on Sunday as a team and we’re happy to win what was a big game.

"The top half is where we want to be so obviously we’re pleased to be 10th again in the league.

"We have quality in the team – we showed that at the weekend and we have to make sure we concentrate on the next game and hopefully in the next few weeks we’ll take our chances to continue moving up the table."
