Jimmy Bullard is drawing inspiration from West Ham’s great escape last season as he looks to steer Fulham away from danger.
The Cottagers remain six points adrift of safety despite hitting back for a late 1-1 draw at Blackburn on Saturday.
However, Bullard does not believe Fulham should be written off and has pointed to West Ham’s survival 12 months ago as a sign that anything can happen.
“As a West Ham fan, I know what can be done with nine games to go and that was mentioned before the game,” said the midfielder.
“We knew that it started here for West Ham as well. We had a big meeting on Saturday morning and said we were all in it together.
“There was more said and it was a positive attitude. We said there were 10 games left and our season starts here.”
Fulham still have a number of their relegation rivals to face, including Newcastle, Sunderland, Reading, Birmingham and bottom club Derby.
However, Bullard insists it is important to get results in every match rather than prioritise certain ones.
He explained: “We don’t look at the teams now – we go out on the pitch forgetting the name of the team and just play.
“Whether it is Everton or Birmingham or Reading, it doesn’t matter. The season starts here and we are going to give it a right good crack.”
