We need a top performance

6 April 2018

Fulham’s unbeaten league run stretches back to Saturday 16 December when Sunderland inflicted a 1-0 defeat at The Stadium of Light.

But 18 games later, the Cottagers are going strong with 14 wins during that period and sit third in the Championship.

With an outside chance of automatic promotion for Saturday’s visitors, Jos Luhukay says his side will have to bring their best to keep their winning run going – which now stands at three after overcoming Leeds, Preston and Sunderland.

“For me, we are facing one of the best teams and you only have to look at their position in the league to see that,” Luhukay said.

“They have a lot of quality in all areas. They have unbelievably high effective players who make a lot of goals, a lot of assists but when you look to what they have outside the first 11, they are very strong.

“They play always with a good plan and they have solutions for every situation so for us, this is a very, very good opponent.

“To get a good result, we will need a top, top performance. It is a very good challenge for us to play against this team.

“When we have played against teams fighting in the top six in the past months, we have played well. That is also possible for Saturday, of course.”

The Cottagers’ outstanding run will be put to the test as they come up against an in-form Owls side, who have scored nine goals in the past three outings.

Jos added: “We have a lot of respect for Fulham but I believe in my team and we want to give our supporters at the end another good result.

“In the last weeks, we have made important results to get in a better position in the league.

“We have a hard two weeks ahead but we look only to Saturday. Our support on Monday at Sunderland was unbelievable; it was positive and gave the team inspiration.

“We need this also for Saturday because it is important for the confidence of the players.”
