Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale believes Fulham have the quality within their squad to avoid the dreaded Premier League drop.

The Cottagers climbed off the foot of the table and moved above both Sunderland and Cardiff on Saturday with a 2-1 victory at Villa Park, but remain five points adrift of Norwich, who are perched immediately above the relegation zone.

Felix Magath's side will welcome the Canaries to Craven Cottage on Saturday, bidding to significantly close the gap on their fellow strugglers.

And Stockdale, who has started ahead of Maarten Stekelenburg in each of Fulham's last four games, insists the squad are refusing to accept the prospect of relegation.

"There's some fight in that dressing room and we've believed all along," Stockdale told Get West London.

"When things fall into place we might win these games comfortably but for now we've just got to keep playing.

"The character is there. The players are there. The ability is there. We all know that, but we just need things to click into place for us.

"There's five more games now and we're still five points adrift so we carry on. Nothing has changed really because we've won at Villa. We're still five points adrift and we need to catch Norwich."
