It’s silly to be talking of survival says Fox
CHARLTON full-back Morgan Fox admits his side are already thinking about survival this season as they host Fulham today.
After a strong start, the Addicks have no wins from their last six in all competitions.
Last weekend, they threw away a lead against Cardiff, as they did at the end of August against Wolves, and the habit must stop now, says Fox.
“We know we are good enough to get back, but at the moment we are not showing that on the pitch. We have to start killing off teams,” he said.
“We know we are good enough to stay in this league. In fact, it feels silly to be saying ‘stay in this league’. We should be pushing for more than that, so we have to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
“We have showed it in patches. Cardiff could not deal with us at times, but we have to show that ruthless streak.”
Guy Luzon’s side have been crippled by injuries in recent weeks and will be without Stephen Henderson, Christian Ceballos, Johnnie Jackson and forwards Igor Vetokele, Simon Makienok and Reza Ghoochannejhad.
They can at least welcome back former France international Alou Diarra after suspension, while teenager Karlan AhearneGrant could start after climbing off the bench to score his first league goal at Cardiff.
Fulham, meanwhile, will be without the suspended Tom Cairney, but former Addick Scott Parker, Luke Garbutt and George Williams will be hoping to feature after stepping up their return to fitness.
A midweek loss to Wolves killed Fulham’s momentum after they destroyed QPR last weekend and boss Kit Symons know it’s about getting a level of consistency
“Anyone can beat anyone in the Championship,” he said. “It’s such a tight league, so it is just getting on a bit of a run.We spoke after Wolves about how there was a euphoria after the QPR win and how I didn’t really want that. It’s a win. Brilliant, but we move on.”
