Fulham confident ahead of Cardiff clash

Fulham Manager Felix Magath has revealed the Brentford victory has put the players in a confident frame of mind heading into the Cardiff clash.

Mohamed Al Fayed has also hit back at the Fulham manager after he blamed the club's former owner for their recent demise.

The Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League in May after 13 seasons.

He accused Al Fayed of "not spending money", despite injecting around £200 million into the club over 16 years.

Fulham sold the best players and brought in average players. You cannot go on doing that for a long time.

– Felix Magath, Fulham Manager

Al Fayed has described suggestions he is to blame as "absurd."

The west London side, who are currently two points adrift of safety in 19th, face Hull City at Craven Cottage on Saturday ahead of a trip to Stoke City and a final home game against Crystal Palace.

"I am convinced we will stay up if we win our home games, but we have another game next week away at Stoke and there is always a chance to win three points," Magath said.

"We will not only try to win at our home games, we try to win every game."
