FUL­HAM’S SPARE DAY CAN HELP

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FOURTH ROUND -

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.
