Fulham boss Martin Jol has told Kieran Richardson to buck up his ideas.

Jol reckons it is time for Richardson to produce the form which prompted Fulham to pay Sunderland £2million for him during the summer.

The manager said: "He's lacking the spark and a little bit of fitness.

"Alex Kacaniklic is only 20 and Richardson should be better than him. But he hasn't been."
