HAV­ING helped Amiens to pro­mo­tion to the French top flight last sea­son, new Ful­ham striker Aboubakar Ka­mara is con­fi­dent he can do the same at Craven Cot­tage this year.

The 22-year-old French striker scored on the fi­nal day of the Ligue 2 sea­son, to help push his old team into the au­to­matic pro­mo­tion spots on a day which could have seen six dif­fer­ent teams fin­ish in the top two.

Ka­mara has his sights firmly on the fu­ture but will draw on the ex­pe­ri­ence of last sea­son to help with the Whites’ pro­mo­tion push in the Cham­pi­onship.

“It’s great what we did last sea­son – the first time (win­ning pro­mo­tion to Ligue 1) for Amiens – but this is now in the past. Now I fo­cus on what’s in front,” said Ka­mara.

“To­day I’m at Ful­ham and I’ll try to re­pro­duce the same feat as last sea­son with Amiens. I will give my best.”

Last sea­son, Ful­ham missed out on a place in the play-off fi­nal af­ter be­ing nar­rowly de­feated by Read­ing in the semi-fi­nals.

Slav­isa Jokanovic’s side had not signed a se­nior striker on a per­ma­nent deal since the ar­rival of Matt Smith in the 2014 sum­mer win­dow.

They will be look­ing to Ka­mara to sup­ply the sta­bil­ity that last sea­son’s chaotic loan of Derby’s Chris Martin could not pro­vide.

Ka­mara added: “I need to do my job in front of goal and I think, if I’m able to do this, then the fans will be pleased with me, and so will I.

“I don’t know how many goals I’m go­ing to be able to score here, but we’ll soon see what will hap­pen.

“I’ll be do­ing every­thing to bring goals and pro­vide good foot­ball.”
