The Cottagers suffered another heavy defeat at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, losing 5-0 to Manchester City which takes their goal difference for the season to minus 40.

However, the Fulham skipper is certainly not entertaining thoughts of relegation to the Championship just yet.

The Norwegian said: "We have quite a few games we know we can win. It is still doable and there is a belief we can do it.

"Time is running out a little bit and we need to pick up results. But if we are honest, we didn't expect to win at Man City.

"We were hoping for something but I suppose in the 'budget' there weren't many points here. We will have to get them elsewhere."

And Dutchman John Heitinga is another who is confident of avoiding the drop: "We need to fight to survive.

"There are still seven games to play and most of the games are at home, so we need to keep (getting) the points."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
