Fulham midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe has claimed that his side remain in high spirits ahead of their Championship clash against Birmingham City.

The Cottagers saw their five-game unbeaten run come to a halt in midweek following a 3-1 defeat away at Burnley.

Despite the setback, Tunnicliffe insists that taking on sixth-placed Birmingham City this weekend provides Fulham with the perfect chance to regain some momentum.

The 22-year-old said: “I won’t get the Burnley defeat out of my system until the Birmingham fixture.

“When you start focusing on the game and start to get the last match out of your head and move on to the next one.

Again, they’ll be another hard team to play against.

“But they’re coming to our place and we’ll go into the game confident that we can beat them.

It will be a tough match but one I’m fully expecting us to go into and do the job.”
