No concerns for Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov was never concerned about QPR's comeback or Fulham's Premier League survival following their 3-2 win at Craven Cottage.

Fulham exploited generous defending from their West London rivals to establish a 3-0 lead inside 41 minutes through the striker's double and a Clint Hill own goal.

Adel Taarabt pulled one back in the first half and Loic Remy added a second, moments after seeing a penalty saved, before Fulham lost Steve Sidwell to a red card for a late foul on Armand Traore.

And despite a late onslaught from the visitors, the Bulgarian always felt Martin Jol's side had enough quality to hang on.

"We have always been safe, I don't think anyone should worry - we play good football," Berbatov told Sky Sports 1.

"I was not nervous, we almost threw the game away, we had a comfortable lead.

"Maybe when they scored their second goal they believed. We held our lead we should score more, but three points is good for us."

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.
