Fulham Coach Scott Parker is keen to get some more points on the board to ensure Fulham end the season on something of a high.

Two more fixtures remain, starting with Europa League finalists Manchester United, who will be keen to secure second spot at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

“Tomorrow night we’re playing the second best team in this division,” Parker explained. “We need to end the season in the right way.

“It’s been a big disappointment this year, not being able to stay in the league, but there’s still a job to do, and that’s be professional and have some pride in our performance.

“I need to make sure that the squad understand that as well, and that’s the challenge for me.

“When you get to this part of the season with a week to go, two games, and your season is already defined and you know where you are, then it’s those words and those characteristics which I’m conscious of, sitting here, so that’s the main focus really.

“The most important thing for me is finishing this season and focusing on that. What’s to be next year is a few months away.

“What’s vitally important for me, and the players, and I need the players to understand that, is that you’re in the biggest and best league, the spotlight is constantly on you, and you need to finish the season in the right way.

“We’ve got a very tough game tomorrow against the second best team in this division. If we turn up there and for one second don’t have that focus in our heads then it’s going to be a difficult game for us.

“It’s already going to be difficult, of course it is, so that’s the main focus for me certainly at this point.”

Saturday’s trip to Southampton saw the likes of Josh Onomah and Joe Bryan get some game time, and when asked if he has next season in mind when it comes to team selection, Parker replied: “I think there’s an element of that, definitely.

“There are players that are contracted to the Club, players that will be here in a longer term capacity.

“But at the same time, us being competitive, us being very professional and making sure we can – as we have done for most of this year – show what we’re about and show our quality, and try and put our stamp on the football match. That’s the main aim tomorrow.”
