IAN Holloway hailed the togetherness of his side after Millwall made a mockery of Fulham's millions with a battling win at Craven Cottage.
After going ahead through Martyn Woolford's early volley, the Lions produced a magnificent rearguard action to shut out the Cottagers and ruin their first home game of the season.
Goalkeeper David Forde was on top form, denying £11million signing Ross McCormack and England youth international Patrick Roberts with stunning second-half saves.
And Holloway said afterwards: "The difference between Fulham and Millwall is millions of pounds but it didn't show because my lads work and play for each other.
"They're doing it for the fans and we look like a proper family.
"I'm absolutely delighted with the win. We got a few things wrong but a fair few bits right, and we needed to today because this was a big, big game.
"One or two of the lads started off a little bit nervously because I wanted them to pass the ball out from the back and it was a big occasion, but they grew into it.
"We scored a fantastic counter-attacking goal and Fordey should get some credit for that because he's caught it and rolled it out quickly, and we've caught them out.
"We knew they would try to push forward. Ricardo Fuller's cross was fantastic and it was a great goal.
"After that it was tough but I thought we held our shape and we stepped up well. We could have nicked it by a couple more goals, but Fordey made two brilliant saves as well.
"All in all, I'm absolutely delighted and I'm proud of my club. This is the first time I've ever won at Fulham."
