Luis Boa Morte is up for the Cup

Fulham player of the moment Luis Boa Morte says The Cottagers need to "keep picking up the points" in order to stay clear of the relegation places.

Saturday's 2-1 win over Aston Villa at Loftus Road kept Jean Tigana's side in 15th position in the Premiership.

The Cottagers are now nine points clear of 18th-placed West Brom but Portugal international Boa Morte insists they cannot take their foot off the pedal just yet.

He said: "We were very happy with the result because it was a crucial three points.

"We've 12 games left and we've got to keep picking up the points, especially at home."

The former Arsenal star also insists Fulham are desperate to defeat Burnley in this weekend's FA Cup fifth-round clash after losing out at the semi-final stage to Chelsea last year.

"It was very good against Aston Villa but we have to put that game behind us now and focus on the cup and nothing else.

"It was good getting to the semi-finals last year, and all we did was take it one game at a time. We were very sad to get knocked out against Chelsea and I think that has made us very determined to get to the final this time round."
