Trevor Francis sees Fulham amassing a record points total.

Trevor Francis has stated that he can see Fulham clinching promotion by late February at their current rate of progress: "They are the outstanding team in the league." I think Sunderland were a good team when they got 100 points, but this team have the ability to get a new record.

'Our only hope is to take the same approach as we did in our Worthington Cup ties against Premiership sides like Tottenham and Newcastle, because Fulham, in my opinion, have the same sort of quality,' said Francis.

'I have been managing in Division One for five years and Fulham are by far the best side I have seen at this level. If they were in the Premiership now, I believe they would be in the top six.

They have class players who are performing with total confidence. 'We face our toughest League game of the season but, as we have shown in cup-tie football, we are capable of dealing with a real test like this.

The Blues manager insisted his players required no motivation this weekend.There will be no need to give my lads a team talk because everyone will be up for the challenge - and it will make a change for us to be underdogs.'
