The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Char­lie Ben­nett

TOM CAIRNEY says Ful­ham will be the most feared team in the play-offs – if they man­age to se­cure a top-six fin­ish.

The Cot­tagers are on a charge – they were sixth head­ing into the week­end – and tim­ing their run per­fectly as they bid to re­turn to the Premier League after a three-year ab­sence.

Boss Slavisa Jokanovic has the Whites play­ing an ex­cit­ing brand of foot­ball and, with mo­men­tum on their side, mid­fielder Cairney be­lieves no side is play­ing with more free­dom.

“We have gone un­der the radar a lit­tle bit this sea­son with the way we have been play­ing.

“We haven’t been in the top six for the past few months but I think we are hit­ting form at the right time and we are scor­ing a lot of goals,” the 26-year-old said.

“We are the high­est scor­ers in the league (82 pre-week­end) so I think peo­ple will fear us.

“We do play ex­pan­sive foot­ball and some­times we have been caught out, but that is what has got us in this po­si­tion now and I don’t think we will change.”

FORM: Tom Cairney
