Martin Jol admits Fulham are in dire need of a goal to kick-start their season after going almost five hours without scoring.

After starting the season brightly despite a number of high-profile departures, the Cottagers' lack of squad depth has been brought into sharp focus. The 1-0 defeat of Aston Villa in mid-October was the west Londoners' last victory, meaning they face Newcastle on Monday without a win in seven attempts.

"We have to pick up ourselves and pick up some points," said Jol.
