Martin Jol admits that Fulham are in a battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League this season.

The Cottagers are currently in 14th place in the Premier League table and just five points above the drop zone ahead of Wednesday’s clash against West Ham.

The Dutchman concedes that his side “need points quickly” and has warned them that they cannot afford to take their position for granted.

“I was asked after the game against Wigan if I think we are in a fight now, looking down rather than up, and the truth is I have thought that for some time,” Jol wrote in the club’s matchday programme.

“No-one has the right to take their position for granted, and we are no different.

“We need the points, and quickly, because that is the way that we will be able to gain confidence and put in performances that are reflective of the quality that we have in the squad.”
