Baird wary of 'on fire' Gunners


Chris Baird is happy to continue being Fulham's Mr Versatile - although he would prefer not mark former team-mate Theo Walcott this weekend.

The 29-year-old has lined up all across the backline for the Cottagers this season as they juggle Barclays Premier League and Europa League commitments. Baird played in an unfamiliar left-back role during Saturday's 0-0 draw at Sunderland and insists he is happy play wherever he is needed.

"I have (played across the defence) and played as left-back on Saturday," Baird said. "I don't mind where I play as long as I am in the team, playing well. That's the most important thing for me, helping the team, and hopefully that will continue."
