Magath admits to difficult task keeping Fulham in Premier League

Felix Magath says trying to keep Fulham in the top flight is the toughest test of his managerial career. The Cottagers are bottom with 21 points with 10 matches left, a point behind Cardiff, whom they visit on Saturday.

Magath won three Bundesliga titles, but said: "It's the most difficult because now we are behind the other teams."

The 60-year-old German added: "The team is growing together and that is what makes me sure we can avoid relegation."

"The best confidence you can get is if you win," he said. "We need a win for our confidence.

"If I look at the schedules I know we have quite a good schedule in the last 10 games.

"I am convinced we will avoid relegation because we have developed in the last 14 days. Everybody has to put in a shift and push the team to give their best."
