Steve Bull as made some bold claims on Fulham’s survival odds, claiming that Scott Parker’s momentum could grind to an agonising halt.
Just two points separate the two sides at the denouement of the international break, leaving Scott Parker’s side within touching distance of Premier League safety.
Speaking to FootballFanCast, the veteran of midlands football felt the survival race could go down to the wire:
“I think Scott Parker’s bubble has burst a little bit a moment. I think they were riding on a bit of wave earlier but you aren’t going to win every single game of the season.
“Steve Bruce has been on a bit of a helter-skelter at the moment, sometimes winning, drawing and losing but the results haven’t been going for him recently.
“To win two or three games in the Premier League is a lot so I think like Aguero’s title-winning goal for City, it’ll be like that down the bottom this season.”
In an encouraging sign for Fulham, the Cottagers have tightened up defensively to become a robust defensive unit in recent months.
In their last nine games, Fulham have only been beaten by more than one goal once – coming in a 3-0 defeat against Manchester City – with the defensive bedrock being in place for a safety push.
With Newcastle and Fulham clashing on the last game of the season, Craven Cottage could be hosting a de facto cup final as the two sides battle desperately to retain Premier League status.
