Christian Damiano Stories
After last season's First Division champions ended a six-game losing streak at Southampton, Damiano admitted they still need at least five points to ensure a second season in the top flight.

The visitors were gifted a share of the spoils at St Mary's Stadium by Paul Jones' seventh-minute blunder which allowed French striker Steve Marlet to steer home.

Although Rory Delap equalised from the one moment of quality in the contest, Fulham shaded a rather uninspiring match.

Damiano said: "It was important to stop the run of six defeats and I think we need to win two more games.

"I think we are safe when we have 41 points because many teams are very close at the bottom.

"We have played well this year and we have tried hard every time we have gone out but we have always taken the minimum rather than maximum points.

"It's a reflection of our season when we should win we have drawn and when we should draw we have lost.

"That is what has happened to us virtually all season."
