Fulham Head Coach Scott Parker is relishing the prospect of fans cheering his Fulham side on this coming Sunday.

The Whites will be backed by around 2,000 supporters when we host Liverpool, the first time Craven Cottage has opened its doors to the public since a 2-0 win over Preston North End back in February.

“I think they can have a massive impact,” Parker said. “It’s been such a long time that the stadiums have been empty.

“That’s what our game’s about, playing with that passion and dynamism that fans bring. We’re fortunate that we have fans in our stadium this weekend, and we’re looking forward to that.

“It was a long, hard season last year and there was a crucial part of that season when we were getting promoted at Wembley, where our fans were not there to enjoy it.

“We’re looking forward to it, I’m sure they are as well, and hopefully it gives us that little bit more.”

It could hardly be a more tantalising fixture for fans to take in on their return, as we welcome the Premier League champions to SW6.

Liverpool currently sit level on points with Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the Premier League, despite already suffering some blips this season.

But when asked if the likes of their 7-2 loss at Aston Villa gives his side confidence approaching the game, Parker replied: “We’re always confident.

“We are where we are in the league table, but as a team and the way we’re going and the way we drive things, we’re always confident going into every game.

“Of course we understand the challenge we face. There’s no denying we’re up against arguably one of the best teams in Europe over the last 18 months.

“It is a massive challenge, but like last week against Man City, we’ll go into the game looking to cause Liverpool some problems.

“We’ll try and put our stamp on it a little bit, whilst also trying to nullify the threats they bring.”
