Fulham striker Nevland reflects on rollercoaster week

Fulham striker Erik Nevland admits the past week has been a rollercoaster.

After scoring in Fulham's memorable 3-1 win against the Reds at Craven Cottage the Norwegian striker received his marching orders in Rome after barely four minutes of action. Nevland was clearly affected by the sending off and spoke of his relief at being back in the starting line-up to face Wigan on Sunday.

Nevland told fulhamfc.com: "I'd been injured for a while so it was nice to come back against Liverpool, make a contribution and get my first goal of the season. However it was shocking against Roma. I'd never had a red card in my life - it was a new experience and a low point in my career.

"I'd been thinking about it a lot and didn't sleep well on the Friday night. It was great to start on Sunday because it helped get Thursday night out of my system. Obviously it was good to get that out of the way, forget it and move on."
