Healy: Happy with start
David Healy insists he will not set a goals target after scoring in his first two games for Fulham.
The Northern Ireland international marked his Fulham debut by putting his new side ahead at Arsenal after just a minute last weekend.
In midweek, the striker netted again as The Cottagers recorded a 2-1 home success over Bolton Wanderers.
But though Healy has been delighted with his start to the Premier League season, he is not getting carried away.
"It's been a good start for me personally, so to mark my home debut with a goal was very pleasing," he said.
"But I'm not going to start setting targets of scoring goals in every game because I know it's not possible as a striker.
"When you play, you are expected to create chances, not just for yourself but for others. If I can do that and nick the odd goal here and there, that's the main thing."
Healy is also confident that Fulham have enough quality to avoid another battle to avoid relegation from the top flight.
He added: "The lads struggled a bit last year, but hopefully with what they had last year and what the new players have added, there's going to be more then enough to compete in this league.
"We're looking forward to the challenge and there's a big game on Saturday against Middlesbrough and hopefully we can have the same outcome."
