Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE - By JON WEST

BREDE HAN­GE­LAND in­sists Ful­ham can con­tinue up­set­ting the Premier League big boys this sea­son.

The Cot­tagers have snatched a point at Arse­nal and beaten Liver­pool in their last two league matches – and now face Manch­ester United and Chelsea later this month.

They could be with­out Danny Mur­phy for two games as their skip­per has an an­kle in­jury, but Han­ge­land is brim­ming with con­fi­dence. He said: “The way we played against Liver­pool and what we did at Arse­nal last week shows it doesn’t mat­ter who we play.

“We are just as likely to pick up points against the big boys as much as the so-called weaker teams.”

Martin Jol’s men edged away from trou­ble and to­wards mid-ta­ble with their win over Liver­pool on Mon­day. Cen­tre­half Han­ge­land (right) added: “If you look at the league ta­ble, ev­ery­one can see how im­por­tant that game was.

“We know what we can do and, as long as we keep putting in good per­for­mances, we will get our re­ward in the end.

“It’s not nice to be where we have been in the ta­ble, so hope­fully we will move up as soon as pos­si­ble.

“There is a fine line be­tween suc­cess and fail­ure. We are ex­tremely happy to get the three points.”

John Arne Ri­ise also claims his team-mates are ready to face high-fly­ing sides af­ter their morale-boost­ing win over Kenny Dal­glish’s men.

He added: “To play against Manch­ester United, Arse­nal and Liver­pool is hard work. But if we do what we can we have a chance to go away with points.”
