Fulham switch their focus to Cup football after securing a vital win over Burnley in midweek. Roy Hodgson’s side face testing ties against giant-killing Notts County and the dangerous Shakhtar Donetsk in the next few days that are sure to test the durability of the manager’s injury-hit squad.
Any competition we can win is a major competition because basically our success has been getting into the Premier League and staying there. I don’t think we can ever dismiss the fact that winning a trophy for Fulham would be a Red Letter Day. There would be very few people putting money on us to win the Europa League given the level of competition and the fact that some of our very best players are not available to play between now and the rest of the season.
The FA Cup – maybe we’ve got a slight shout. We’ve been lucky with the draws. We’ve played Swindon, Accrington and now we’re playing Notts County so we can’t say the draw has been unkind to us.
It’s in our hands and if we can do well on Sunday and get through, who knows what the next round would bring. We have high hopes and aspirations. There’ll be lots of tough nuts to crack before we get there and we’re aware of that.
