The hosts had a man sent off just before half time, with Antonee Robinson given his marching orders for a late tackle on Cesar Azpilicueta.
But Lampard was just pleased to get a win whatever the circumstances.
“Of course it feels good to get a win, it has not been easy with the league form recently and you have to break the duck,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
“Fulham made it difficult. We started the game well, controlled a lot of the ball, it is not easy against 10 men. We kept going and we got what we deserved tonight.
