FULHAM’S SPARE DAY CAN HELP
JAMIE O’HARA believes a weekend off will help Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic overcome his slow start to life in charge at Craven Cottage.
Jokanovic, who took the reins in late December, is yet to win a game in charge, leaving Fulham perilously close to the relegation zone.
They are not in action this weekend, due to Blackburn’s FA Cup commitments, and O’Hara expects that to work in the manager’s favour.
“I like the games to come thick and fast but it gives us a chance to have a weekend off and work together as a group,” said the midfielder.
“We can assess what we’re doing wrong and spend time on the training pitch to get things right.
“It will help the gaffer. He has tried to get across what he wants and now he’s got a couple of weeks to really work on it. Every game has got to be a cup final.”
Meanwhile, Jokanovic looks set to lose two strikers, with Spurs reportedly close to signing Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack handing in a transfer request.
