Fulham ready for must-win Blues clash

Brede Hangeland insists Fulham enter Saturday's Titanic relegation tussle with Birmingham City full of confidence.

Roy Hodgson's side completed a remarkable fightback at Manchester City last Saturday when Diomansy Kamara's second-half cameo inspired a 3-2 victory.

The result has flooded Fulham with self-belief as they size-up the three-point gap between themselves and Barclays Premier league safety.

Fellow strugglers Birmingham, who sit one place higher in 18th, visit Craven Cottage where a third victory in four games could edge Fulham out of the relegation zone for the first time December 26.

'Just like the Man City match we really have to win this one too,' said the Norway centre back.

'We need to clinch our last two games and we're quite confident after the good performance over Manchester City.

'It didn't look good for us at half-time but we kept at it and got a fantastic result.

'We're in a position where we have everything to play for and if we try as hard as we did at City, I think we have a chance.

'We knew that if we lost that game we would be out of it, so the win was a great achievement and it gave us confidence that we can still get out of trouble.'

Birmingham's form has been patchy at best while Fulham finally appear to have turned a corner - and at the decisive stage of the season.

Whether it is enough to ensure survival with two games remaining - they finish at Portsmouth - remains to be seen and Hangeland knows it is desperately tight.

'I think we can expect a tense and really tough game against Birmingham,' he said.

'It will be a physical game and we have to be prepared for that.

'Considering our position in the league, our fans have been fantastic and they will play a major part tomorrow as well.'
