Fulham manager Kit Symons says his side are full of confidence and are eager to return to winning ways in the league against Reading at the Cottage.

With their opponents just one place and two points ahead of them in the standings, Symons admits it's a big game for his side on Saturday.

"It's a home game for us and we want to get back to winning ways in the league," he said in Friday's press conference. "Tuesday's result in the Cup was a good one but we need to start winning league games and it will be a tough game, just like they all are in the Championship."

The Royals have improved under the stewardship of new manager Steve Clarke and are unbeaten in their last four games, so Symons knows his side will have to be at their best to record three points.

"He's doing a great job at Reading and is someone I have known over the years," he stated. "Defensively they are looking very tight, so we will have to be at our best and play like we did in the first half at Wolves. If we do, we can cause anyone problems in this division."

The last time the two sides met was back in September at the Madejski Stadium with the home side coming out 3-0 winners, but the Fulham boss believes a lot has changed since then.

"A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then," he explained. "There's been big changes at the Football Club and we're going into the game with a lot of confidence and looking forward to it."

With a busy period ahead for the Club, with three games in the space of eight days, Symons says he will be making full use of his squad: "The games are coming thick and fast now and progressing in the Cup will add to that. It's a lot of fixtures and people will be rotated, as you have to to get through these periods, but I'm happy we've got the players to do that."

With the transfer window open, Symons admitted the Club are in talks with a couple of clubs over players, but would not reveal any names at this stage

"It's very early days," he stressed. "The discussions are ongoing and we will look to bring in good players into this Football Club. If I can strengthen the squad and they are the right characters then I will always look to do it. The Chairman is very supportive and understanding of that and is keen to help with that."
