Fulham Head Coach Scott Parker knows the importance of seeing off this first chunk of the season with a good result.

After our sixth Sky Bet Championship fixture on Friday, there will be a two week hiatus until our next outing due to the international break.

“It’s a big game for us,” Parker said of the trip to Cardiff City.

“There’s a long international break coming up and really you want to be going into that break with a positive result.

“We’ve prepared this week, with a quick turnaround in games, and we’re going to go to Cardiff and try and put in a really good performance, and hopefully we can get something out of the game.

“They’re a strong outfit with a manager in Neil [Warnock] who knows the league, knows his team, knows how to set up.

“I think we all realise that Friday night away at their place is going to be a very, very tough game for us, there’s no denying that.”

Parker’s Fulham bested the Bluebirds when we met in the Premier League just four months ago, and he has plenty of respect for his counterpart – who has stated his intention to retire at the end of the current campaign.

“Neil’s been in it a long, long while,” Parker stated “He’s got vast experience and seen a lot.

Then there’s me who’s dipping my toe, just starting out.

“He’s probably a good one to have a little chat with.

Last season I had a little bit of communication with him, and then this year during the summer.

“Like I say, he’s vastly experienced and has done very, very well, especially in this league.”
