Magath fears failure

Felix Magath confesses to being "afraid" as Fulham's increasingly desperate quest to secure another season in the Barclays Premier League reaches a critical point.

For me, it (keeping Fulham in the Premier League) would be my most successful achievement.

I have never been relegated and I'm a bit afraid of the situation, I don't know how it feels to be relegated. I am afraid.

I am always nervous, without nerves you can not bring 100 per cent.

The mental side is always the most important thing - the players know how to kick, mentality is what we are fighting for.

– Fulham manager Felix Magath


Stockdale: We'll pick ourselves up

David Stockdale believes both nerves and naivety cost Fulham dear in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Hull, which left Felix Magath's side in the Barclays Premier League relegation zone with just two games remaining.

When you are anxious to get the 90 minutes over and take the three points, things can go astray. There was a lot of tension in the ground and we did things that we would not normally do at home. That was our downfall.

It is important we pick ourselves up now.

It is points we need at this stage of the season. We can't change the Hull result now so we have to go and win our remaining two games.

Three points against Stoke on Saturday and we are right back in it. If we play anything like we did in the first 75 minutes, we will be okay. We need a few teams to help us out now as well.
