Fulham’s fate could be sealed on Tuesday night, but Scott Parker is striving for the three points which would keep our head above water.

Defeat by Watford would confirm relegation to the Championship, whereas a draw would effectively serve us with the same sentence.

“I think it’s vitally important,” Parker said when asked about the trip to Vicarage Road.

“The scenario is what it is.

It’s a massive game for us, to not be relegated tomorrow night.

“The team, the football club, and everyone associated with it, needs a win really.

I think performances have got better, but ultimately we sit here without a win for some time now.

“If there was ever a time with the important games Watford are coming out of and going into [it could be a good time to play them].

For us it’s a game we look on and want to put in a good performance and come away with a result.

“They’re a very good side who have done fantastic this year.

They’ve got power and pace, with a streetwiseness about them as well.

” Parker’s four matches thus far as Caretaker Manager couldn’t have been much tougher, and when it was put to him that the remaining fixtures will offer a better chance to stake his claim to be given the job full-time, he replied: “I’m not really focusing on myself, I’m focusing on the team, and I’m focused on us trying to get results.

“It is what it is, but my main focus is trying to get some results.

At the end of the season there’ll be a sense of disappointment for everyone at the football club – the players, the team, the fans, everyone – and I think ultimately we want to put a little bit of that right.
