Chris Coleman has warned his Fulham players that they will face a stern test against a fired-up Wolves side this weekend.
The Fulham boss told his pre-match press conference at Motspur Park:
“They’ve been playing really well at home and our away form isn’t great. Last week I said to the lads that there’s an air of cockiness around the place. Let’s not forget where we’ve come from, we’re at a really critical stage of the season where we need to dig some results out.
I thought that our performance against West Ham was a little lacklustre. We huffed and puffed, and we are a better side than that. We’ve got to get back to the form that we showed before and start showing a little more belief in ourselves. That needs to start with the Wolves match. They’re scrapping for their lives and if we don’t improve on last week’s performance, we’ll be in trouble.
I’ve given the players a few days off because they’ve played a lot of football. They know that they haven’t been firing like they should be. I think there’s a bit of fatigue but also we’re on 35 points and are not really getting sucked into that relegation zone. It would be very disappointing if our season fizzled out now. We’ve come this far and we need to go for a new goal.”
