Slavisa Jokanovic insists the race for second place is still in Cardiff City's hands - despite Fulham moving into the last automatic promotion spot tonight. A single Stefan Johansen goal made sure the Whites extracted revenge over Reading for last season's play-off defeat, while also extending the unbeaten run to 20 AND taking second place from the Bluebirds.
