The prospect of Martin O'Neill succeeding Martin Jol at Fulham is gaining momentum.

Jol is fighting to save his job this week with fans now turning on the manager.

The Daily Mail says O'Neill has emerged as an early contender to replace Jol in west London after his long-term assistant Steve Walford was spotted at Craven Cottage during the defeat to Cardiff on Saturday.

Former Manchester United No 2 Rene Meulensteen will also be considered, while ex-Chelsea team-mates Roberto Di Matteo and Gus Poyet could also be in the running.
