Fulham defender looks ahead

Fulham defender Lesley Duru is looking forward to Monday’s test against Leeds.

“This will be a great challenge for all of us,” he told the club website.

“In recent games, we’ve shown our ability to press teams and turn them over. Hopefully, if we stick together Leeds will be no different.

“I think we were very unfortunate to drop points against Middlesbrough. We created a handful of good chances and I thought the boys were excellent to be honest.”
