Bobby Zamora says Fulham’s draw with Manchester City can act as a springboard to launch their stuttering league campaign.
Zamora’s terrific right-footed finish – his second in successive Premier League games – sparked a superb Fulham comeback that ended City’s perfect start to the Premier League campaign and lifted Martin Jol’s side off the bottom of the table. Not that the Fulham striker had been paying too much attention to the early league table.
It means nothing at the minute, in terms of looking at the table. I don’t think you can tell anything until a good 10 to 15 games into the season.
This was a great point for us. Craven Cottage has always been our fortress, we’ve always done well here. Hopefully, we can continue now and kick on. One win and you’re halfway up the table.
Zamora was modest enough to admit that there was a touch of fortune about his goal.
Originally I wanted to set up someone else. But my touch wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be. That worked out fortunate for me, to set myself up for the shot.
Zamora has hit goalscoring form after a slow start to the season, which wasn’t helped by an untimely ankle injury. He hopes to be back in Fabio Capello’s squad for England’s final Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro next month.
We’ve got a lot of great strikers in England. But I’ll keep working away. If I’m there, then it will be superb.
