Fulham striker Mladen Petric says he can form a deadly double act with Dimitar Berbatov for Fulham.

Petric has yet to start with the former Manchester United striker as both have suffered injuries since arriving at Craven Cottage in summer.

The Croatian forward admits Fulham looked weak going forward against Manchester City but believes a partnership with Berbatov would add a whole new dimension.

Petric said: “I think we can be a good attacking team together. He is a very good player and I hope in the future we can cause trouble for opponents.”

Fulham boss Martin Jol said: “Petric did well but of course Berbatov has qualities that can make a difference against a team like that.

“Someone told me he’s played 10 times against them (City) and lost only once.”
