Tim Hoogland has urged his Fulham team-mates to put together a more complete performance against Bolton Wanderers after their come from behind victory at Birmingham on Saturday.

The German right back, who has switched to a defensive role again after a spell in midfield, has echoed the words of caretaker manager Kit Symons in calling for an end to the patchy displays that has characterised Fulham’s slow start to life in the Championship.

It’s a tough league, the second half at Birmingham was really great, but we have to remember it and play like that for 90 minutes in the next game.

Hoogland has proved an unexpected source of goals since his summer move from Schalke, with his crucial equaliser at St. Andrew’s his third in eleven appearances for Fulham.

It got a little deflection, but you need a bit of luck. If you don’t shoot, you don’t score, and it was the turning point of the game. If we were to have won 4-1 it wouldn’t have been a surprise.

Victory over Bolton at Craven Cottage tomorrow night could lift te Cottagers out of the Championship relegation zone.
