Scott Parker admits every game is a must win for Fulham now, but has vowed they will “give up” anything they can get when they face Wolves on Friday night.
The Cottagers missed another chance to get out of the relegation zone on Sunday when they collapsed to a 3-1 loss to Aston Villa. Fulham led 1-0 before conceding three times in a 10-minute delay in the game. To make matters worse, 17th Newcastle collected a vital point against Tottenham.
“I’m thrilled with this challenge, and the challenge we have ahead of us is seven games to put us in an incredible position,” said Parker.
“We’re going to fight, give up and do whatever we can to give ourselves a chance to try to stay in this division this season.
“It would be an incredible achievement for the team and for the football club and that is my only goal and I look forward to it.
“I’m savoring this (challenge) and looking forward to Friday. Whatever the outcome, we move on and we’re still in this one and it’s going to be a year that’s been a journey and hopefully a story to tell at the end.
Currently in 18th place with 26 points, three behind Newcastle, Fulham will look to secure points against a Wolves side winless since February 19.
“It’s a must-see match, but last week was a must, next week is going to be a must. We’re seven games to go and every game is a must win, ”Parker said.
“It’s like that for most of the year, of course, at the start of the season, when you have a lot of football games to play, you can take it off a bit.
Parker continues to believe in Fulham
“Do I feel that if we don’t win, this is going to be decisive? No not at all, but if you ask me in terms of this game you have to win it, yes you absolutely have to win it. We had to beat Villa, and after that we have to go to the Emirates and beat Arsenal and that’s what I want us to do.
“Are we capable of doing it? Of course we are.
“I still don’t think that everything is said and done if there is no result because I feel that my team is capable – even with the games to come – is capable of achieving results in this division and we have proven this. But yes, it is a game that we want to try and get a result.
