Martin Jol: Says Fulham need a win against Everton

The Cottagers have not won any of their last six matches at home, and go into the game on the back of a 2-0 Premier League defeat at Chelsea on Saturday.

In their last home game, they were winning 1-0 against West Brom only to concede a last-minute equaliser and that led to a few boos around the Cottage.

"We need a win," admitted Jol. "It's good for the spirit of the team if we get back to winning games. We played three away matches in the first five in the league. That wasn't easy.

"Against Arsenal (at home), for example, we would like to have got a result and we didn't.

"The West Bromwich game was very important for us and they scored in the final minute of added time. That was a draw."

Jol is therefore planning to send out a full-strength team which could be bolstered by the return of Dimitar Berbatov, defender Aaron Hughes and midfielder Bryan Ruiz.

All three missed the Stamford Bridge trip with injuries but they should be ready for Everton.

"In our situation, I would like to play as many (first-choice) players as possible," said Jol, who is hoping a strike-force of Berbatov and Darren Bent starts producing goals.

"Darren Bent is fit, but Bent didn't play a lot of games for Aston Villa. That is another thing you have to try to put right.

"Also Hugo (Rodallega) was injured over the last two weeks. The time that he played he scored against Burton in the cup.

"Hopefully we can get him fit in the next couple of weeks, Bryan Ruiz comes back and Berbatov, hopefully, and there's more goals in us."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
