Fulham boss Martin Jol is wary of being sucked into the relegation battle.

Stoke, West Ham, Newcastle and Norwich all started the weekend level with Fulham on 33 points and the Dutchman knows any one of them could yet find themselves in trouble.

"We are in a good position but you have to look over your shoulder," said Jol.

"Four or five clubs are still with us there who could be dragged into a situation you won't like.

"We always say we would like to get 40 points as soon as possible and then, you never know. Last year we had 52 points and the year before we were in the top eight with 49, so hopefully we will get 40 and then a bit more."
