Gera calls for calm as Fulham battle against the drop

Zoltan Gera insists Fulham will remain focussed despite sliding down the table towards the drop zone. Sunday's 4-1 home hammering by Manchester City leaves the Cottagers clinging to safety only thanks to a superior goal difference over Wigan.

"I am sure we will not panic," said the 31-year-old. "If we do that it is not good for the team.

"We need to stick together. The league is so tight at the moment, we still have time to pick points up and get out of this zone.

"I am confident. We know we can do much better and we will do much better in the next two games."

"I don't know why we have struggled so badly," he admitted.

"It is difficult to understand because we have chances. We are creating them but have not scored enough.

"We need to work on that, then hopefully, this bad luck will turn round."

"We need to forget this game and do better in the next one, which is going to be very important. We must pick up some points to get out of the relegation zone."
