Fulham boss Martin Jol is confident they'll soon start climbing the table.
Jol believes early-season form is no indication of how a club will finish.
"Even when you're in the bottom three at Christmas it doesn't mean you will go down," he said, ahead of tonight's game with Crystal Palace.
"I remember Ian Holloway doing an unbelievable job at Blackpool. I think he was in the top eight at one stage four or five years ago and they still got relegated after Christmas.
"He played a different system, a very progressive 4-3-3 and he did it again with Crystal Palace. So I still feel that the man is doing a good job, but the results are not going for them.
"And hopefully Monday will be the same."
