Chris Coleman has called on the Fulham fans to fill Craven Cottage to the rafters as the Whites make their long-awaited competitive return to their historic home against Bolton tomorrow.

The Fulham boss has urged the club’s supporters to make the difference as the club looks to re-establish its local roots following their exile at QPR’s Loftus Road.

“The club is back at Craven Cottage in a stronger position than when we left.
We were 13th in the Premiership then and are coming back after finishing ninth,” said Coleman.

“It’s all right selling out for Man Utd and Liverpool, anybody can do that. We want to sell the stadium out every time,” he added. “When we’re playing Bolton and teams like ourselves, that’s when we want them.

“If we don’t do the business on the pitch they can have a go at me or the team, that’s fine, the crucial thing is they get themselves down to support us.

If they support Fulham they shouldn’t say `We’re not coming because you took us away for two years. The club is back at Craven Cottage in a stronger position than when we left.”
