Jol: Ruiz crucial to Fulham survival hopes
Fulham boss Martin Jol believes the return of Bryan Ruiz from injury will be crucial in keeping the Cottagers out of a relegation scrap. The West Londoners are currently six points clear of the Premier League drop zone.
"We need five or six wins as soon as possible because all the managers of all these teams around us will worry because it is not a great position to be in," said Jol.
"But you saw at West Brom how influential Bryan Ruiz can be and he wasn't there for seven or eight games."
"Damien hopefully will come back next week and Mladen will come back," he added. "If we've got everybody on board, I think we are a good team, but, if not, then we struggle."
