Jol keen to avoid relegation scrap

Published Add your comment

Fulham manager Martin Jol concedes any point against Manchester United on Saturday would be a bonus.

The Cottagers enjoyed a surprisingly fruitful start to the campaign after a summer that saw the likes of Mousa Dembele, Clint Dempsey and Danny Murphy depart. That initial success soon faded, though, and the west Londoners dropped down the table, securing just their third win in 16 league games against West Ham on Wednesday.

"That was good," Jol said of the West Ham win. "We prepared the players for that. We knew that we had to play Man United on Saturday - every point against them is a bonus but we needed that win against West Ham. It was very good to have the three points because all these teams below will try to drag Fulham - or any other team which is vulnerable - in."
