It seems like Andy Johnson has finally settled in at Fulham. Sent off just a couple of games after returning from injury to make his debut with the Whites, he went a bit of a scoreless run before opening his account with two against Wigan and played an instrumental part in Sunday’s win over Newcastle – scoring the opening goal and winning the penalty that ultimately decided the game. Now he’s set his sights on Spurs on Saturday.
Tottenham are on a six-match unbeaten run after Harry Redknapp replaced Juande Ramos at White Hart Lane and beat in-form Liverpool twice in twelve days with an impressive win in the Carling Cup last night. Johnson, however, thinks there’s very little for Fulham to fear.
If we play like we did on Sunday I think we’ll be fine. We shouldn’t fear anyone the way we play.
Spurs have been on a great run recently but their bubble has got to burst sooner or later and hopefully we can do that on Saturday.”
That’s the kind of fighting talk we need from our players. And, as pessimistic as I’ve been this season, I think we stand a decent chance of picking up a point or maybe all three on Saturday. Especially, if Gomes (who apparently will be fit after that injury last night) drops another clanger!
