Lee Clark believes midfield should help

Lee Clark believes Fulham's midfield need to take the pressure off the strikers against Southampton at Craven Cottage tomorrow.

Jean Tigana's front men are suffering a crisis of confidence in front of goal and it has meant the team have drawn games they should have won.

They have shared the points in five of their nine Premiership games this season and Louis Saha, £11.5 million-signing Steve Marlet, Barry Hayles and Luis Boa Morte have borne the brunt of the criticism.

But midfielder Clark said: "The goals have got to come from all through the team and the attacking midfielders should be contributing.

"It is not just about the four front players. But we are snatching at chances at the moment rather than striking it or passing it into the goal like we did when we were doing well last season."

Clark added: "Southampton will be fired-up because Gordon Strachan took over as manager this week and they can go above us if they win.

"We cannot keep talking about the problems, we need to produce results now."
