Schwarzer hoping Fulham can bounce back

Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer hopes the club can put the weekend's disappointing loss to Everton behind them in their next Premier League outing. The Cottagers lost to the Toffees 2-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday, continuing their deplorable record at the Merseyside venue, to drop to 12th on the table and Schwarzer is eyeing improvement against Blackpool on April 2 when the Premier League returns.

"It's a huge game, we know it's going to be a very difficult game," Schwarzer told fulhamfc.com. "They've shown on their away trips that they're a very difficult team to play against. They've done tremendously well this season and we know we're in for a very tough game. But we believe, especially at home, that we should be picking up three points.

"No games are easy, if you look at any of our games throughout the whole season, none of our games have been easy. That's why it's imperative that we get results at home and also nick some points away from home - then we'll be looking up the table as opposed to down the table."

The Australian veteran is well aware how disappointing the weekend's result is as it kept the Londoners just above the relegation zone.

"It was very disappointing," he added. "We didn't start the game off like we have done in the last couple of months. The slow start cost us and we were a goal down at half-time because of it. Then to concede from a free-kick in the second-half, which is very unlike us, was very unlucky.

"But from that point on we dominated the game and you could see Everton were on tenterhooks for the rest of the match. We rightfully got back into the game but didn't have enough to get a result.

"We've had such a good run of form but we're still only three points ahead of the bottom three."
