Cairney urges Fulham to play 'passing football'
Fulham playmaker Tom Cairney says his side need to play 'passing football' if they are to avoid the drop this season.
The Cottagers remain 19th in the Premier League table and they are now five points from safety following the heroic comeback against Brighton on Tuesday night.
Claudio Ranieri's men fell 2-0 down in the first half but they responded and scored four goals in the second half to claim all three points.
Despite the sizeable points gap between themselves and safety, Cairney believes his team have the blueprint needed to avoid relegation.
He told Standard Sport: "Look, we have got players to play football. I just feel like we have got to pass the ball. I think that is what we did in the second-half.
"That is what I came on and tried to do to the team. I mean it is tough, we can’t really outfight teams. We aren’t big enough, we aren’t strong enough.
"But we have got good footballers in the team with Ryan Babel coming in, Jean-Michael Seri who can play football, myself.
"With Aleksandar Mitrovic up top, we have always got a chance to score. That is our best way; playing to feet."
