FULHAM are bidding to bounce back at Hillsborough tonight after their 3-2 defeat against Manchester United.
Whatever side Martin Jol decides to field, he will look for further evidence that his club can have a good season, having seen already some in the way they gave Sir Alex Ferguson’s side a game.
“On two occasions we should have scored an equaliser, so that’s how close the game was,” he says.
“I don’t think we should be too hard on ourselves, because there were positives to take. We are building a good team here at Fulham and I remain very optimistic about the season ahead.”
Fulham also spanked Norwich 5-0 in their first game of the season.
Defender Aaron Hughes says: “We did really well against Norwich, and there’s a lot we can take from the Manchester United game.
“We’re solid at the back, have players with a lot of creativity in midfield and up front we can score goals - it’s a nice balance. I think we could have a good season.”
