The former Newcastle and Sunderland star claims wins over Southampton and West Ham have kick-started the west Londoners' season.

Tigana, who spent over £40million assembling a side fit for the top-flight, had seen his team struggle to get results in recent weeks despite winning plaudits for their attractive play.

But Clark said: "With the two wins buoying us up, we're definitely a match for anyone. I think it all points to a good game, and I'm really looking forward to it.

"I don't think we'd lost confidence really, but on the back of our two victories we haven't got any problems there.

"We knew we hadn't been playing too badly, but we just hadn't been getting the goals."

Although he has been struggling with a knee injury, Clark expects to be fit in time for the weekend and he added: "My target is to be ready for selection on Saturday, and hopefully I will be fine by then.

"It's started to improve now. I'm back doing a bit of running and it's all about what sort of reaction I might get now."
