Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann admits he'll be gutted to see Fulham and his American friends suffer relegation.

Ahead of today's clash, Hahnemann wrote in his column for the Daily Mail: "While we have two - myself and Bobby Convey - Fulham have five - my fellow keeper and good buddy Kasey Keller, Carlos Bocanegra, Clint Dempsey, Eddie Johnson and Brian McBride, while their Norwegian defender, Brede Hangeland, was born in Houston!

"Add to that the fact I used to play for Fulham, where I spent three years trying to prove myself, and maybe the match sponsor should be Friends Reunited.

"A win will be massive for our bid to stay up. But for Fulham, well, let's just say it won't be looking good. I don't even want to think about what it'll mean to their U.S. posse if they go down."
