Fulham Head Coach Scott Parker does not want his side to take their foot off the gas ahead of a likely Play-Off campaign.

The results of our final two matches will probably not affect Fulham’s position in the table, but Parker knows the importance of heading into the Play-Offs in good form.

“West Brom was one that we needed to go and win if we’re being realistic about challenging for automatic promotion,” he said. “With only two games left now it’s probably fair to say, albeit not mathematically impossible, it’s very unlikely.

“We’re sitting in a position where we’re guaranteed fourth. What’s most important from my side is that momentum is with us, albeit we wanted to win the game against West Brom, on the scale of things it’s a positive result for us away against a very good side.

“We were coming off the back of four wins before that and got our fourth [consecutive] clean sheet. We’ve got two more games remaining in this season, and hopefully another three in the Play-Offs.

“It will be foot to the floor from my point of view and my team, because that’s the way it is, we’ve got a big game in Sheffield Wednesday, it’s a big game in the sense that we want a positive result.

“We want to keep momentum going, we want to be high energy, we want to be on the front foot, and we want to take another positive result into another game against Wigan which we’ll approach with the same attitude.

“We want to go into the Play-Offs with momentum, something that’s very crucial at that point.”

Saturday’s opponents Sheffield Wednesday are safely ensconced in mid-table, with no chance of promotion or relegation.

But Parker quashed the notion that they will come to Craven Cottage and just roll over.

“I see a team in Sheffield Wednesday who, sitting where they are, maybe don’t have a lot to play for,” he stated, “but I see a competitive team who have the freedom of not having that stress, which could be a positive for them.

“It will be a tough challenge. Solid team with some experience, a good side.

“Ultimately we need to worry about ourselves and address what we need to do. We need to come out with a real strong attitude and a real determination about us to try and win the football match, like we always do.”
