Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald insists that the morale is still high in the Fulham camp despite only picking up one point from their previous two games, reports the club’s official website.
Fulham twice squandered the opportunity to move into the play-off zone; firstly, when they conceded a late equaliser against Blackburn Rovers in the week and then when they failed to capitalise on Sheffield Wednesday’s slip-up by losing 3-1 at home to relegation threatened Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
The Cottagers are still just one point and one place below the top six with superior goal difference and Kevin McDonald knows that it is still in Fulham’s hands.
Sheffield Wednesday face Fulham on the final day of the season and that could be a season-defining game, depending on where both teams are situated by then.
McDonald, speaking to Fulham FC TV, was adamant that the players were still confident of achieving a play-off spot by the end of the season.
After insisting that no one (amongst the fans and players) had given up, the former Wolves midfielder said:
“It’s still in our hands at the end of the day so it’s up to us how much we want to push and I’m sure obviously we’ll regroup, get together for the next game and we’ll give it a massive push for these last eight or nine games or whatever it is.”
