Smith relishing Ross reunion

Matt Smith hopes he will be able to reprise his prolific partnership with Ross McCormack at Fulham.

Smith, 25, moved to Craven Cottage from Leeds on deadline day and has been reunited with his former United strike partner McCormack, who made the 11million switch to west London earlier this summer.

The deadly duo hit 42 goals between them last season and Smith is confident they can repeat the trick and kick-start struggling Fulham's season.

"Obviously Ross is a player I know very well," he told the club website.

"We formed a good partnership with one another last season and hopefully we'll see that again at Craven Cottage. It's a partnership I hope will come to fruition again.

"We've both come in and it's up to us to prove our worth. There are a lot of good players in the squad, and I'm looking forward to working with them all.

"I scored a decent amount of goals last season, and hopefully I can continue that here at Fulham."
