Fulham captain Danny Murphy says last season's achievements will mean nothing unless they maintain their standards in the coming weeks.
"Personally, and as a group, we had such a terrific season and it's nice to look back on it with fond memories, but I think now it's time to look forward," he told fulhamfc.com.
"People usually talk about trying not to wallow in self pity, but in our case I think we should be wary of wallowing in the success of last season, because that can be dangerous.
"All of a sudden you can start thinking, "we're a good team now," but what we had last year was a terrific work ethic, and a desire to do well and perform every week, and that needs to continue, otherwise we'll come a cropper in the Premier League.
"I've been around a long time and I've seen that happen. You can become a bit complacent and think you're better than you are as a team, and you maybe lose a bit of the edge that you had before. So we'll have to be careful of that and the senior players will be trying hard to make sure that doesn't happen."
