Fulham boss Scott Parker will continue believing in his side's chances until safety is a mathematical impossibility.

Fulham will need to take the majority of the 12 remaining points available to have any hope of staying up, and so Parker knows that we are now in must-win territory in the most literal sense.

“Yes, they’re must-win fixtures for us, starting on Monday night against Burnley,” he said. “There’s no denying that we’re at a point in our season, with the position we find ourselves in, these are games we’ve got to win now.

“We’ll try everything in our power to win them. We understand the situation, we understand where we are, but the main focus is Monday night.

“And what Monday night is, is an opportunity for us to win a game of football and get three points, and we’ve got to do that.

“My belief is not waning, definitely not, because at this moment there’s still four games left. I’m not deluded, I understand the predicament we’re in, I understand how difficult the challenge is, but the challenge is still there.

“Okay, we need other results to go our way so it’s not totally in our hands, but what is in our hands is the next four games.

“Can we win four? That’s the aim. In the real short term, that’s Monday night, we need to win that game.”

Burnley are one of the sides the Whites are looking to reel in, but Parker knows his men will have a difficult evening on their hands when Sean Dyche and his men turn up at the Cottage.

“Tough game,” our Head Coach admitted. “Sean’s done an amazing job at Burnley, you know what you’re up against when you face Sean’s teams, you know what they bring.

“A real tough, tough game for us, and we need to be aware of that. They’ve been operating in and around the Premier League now for some time, and that’s credit to Sean and the job he’s done there.

“It’s going to bring some different components perhaps to what other games bring, and we need to stand up to that challenge.”
