Fulham

Parker delighted with lifted Fulham spirits

25th April 2019, 15:04 by James Mason

Scott Parker says an upturn in results has helped to lift Fulham's mood ahead of Saturday's home clash against Cardiff City.

Since relegation to the Championship was confirmed, Fulham have racked up back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time this season after beating Everton and Bournemouth.

The Cottagers have even kept clean sheets in both of those wins and they will be aiming for another three points when they welcome Cardiff, who are still battling to survive, to Craven Cottage.

Speaking ahead of the match, caretaker manager Parker, who is in contention to get the job on a permanent basis, says the whole atmosphere feels better within the squad right now.

"[The two wins] have lifted the mood no end. We've not had back-to-back wins, so it's been a good couple of weeks for us," he said at a press conference. "The boys have been fantastic and very receptive, and the results are a by-product of the work they've done on the training pitch.

"It's always nice to hear that players I'm coaching are appreciative of what we're doing. That's helpful, but ultimately I'll get judged on results and what my team looks like every weekend, and I'm fine with that."
