Fulham manager Martin Jol believes Crystal Palace can pose a significant test to his Fulham side on Monday, despite their poor run of form.

Ian Holloway's side have lost their last four games in the Premier League, scoring just once during that run.

However, Fulham are just two places above second-bottom Palace in the table and Dutchman Jol wants to ensure his players put daylight between themselves and Monday's opponents with a win at Selhurst Park.

"It's not easy to go away from home to play against these teams," Jol told reporters on Thursday.

"If you saw Crystal Palace away against Liverpool [a 3-1 defeat for Palace] in the second half, they could have scored more goals than one. Of course, it was 3-0 going into the second half but they could have scored two or three.

"They're a strong team and it will be difficult but I think we've got the qualities and the players to get a result. It's the Premier League, so it will be difficult, but hopefully we'll get the points because we need these points to get up the league table."
