Fresh from his goal against Hull, Diomansy Kamara wants to continue a remarkable scoring run against Fulham’s next Europa League opponents Roma.

The 28-year-old enjoys playing against the Italian giants having already scored twice against them when he was playing for Modena in Serie A. He hopes that run will continue on Thursday at Craven Cottage.

It’s a big game as we are first in the group and we have not lost in the group stages. I know Roma as I played against them when I was with Modena in Italy. I scored against them as well. I scored against Roma both in the Olympic Stadium in Rome and when Modena were at home.

It is a good omen. Plus Roma, Basel and CSKA Sofia have all lost in the group so far. Maybe if we win this game it will help us go through to the next round of the competition. That’s important for us. With 10 points you will finish first or second, so it’s important we don’t lose against them.

Kamara already has one goal in Europe this season – having scored Fulham’s equaliser in Sofia – and is likely to start in place of the injured Andy Johnson on Thursday night.
