Schwarzer: Fulham will bounce back from Roma defeat

Fulham's Australian keeper, Mark Schwarzer, insists the Cottagers will recover from their Europa League defeat in Roma. The nine men of Craven Cottage were beaten 2-1 by their Italian rivals on Thursday despite initially taking the lead through a Diomansy Kamara spot-kick.

Although disappointed, Schwarzer insists his side will bounce back in time for Sunday's trip to Wigan.

"I don't think it will affect the team," said the 37 year old.

"We've had a very good run the last couple of weeks and decisions against Roma were made that were out of our hands.

"Now we must recover as much as possible and prepare for Sunday's game at Wigan, which will be tough.

"The key to it will be to recover as much as possible. It's a long trip there (from Rome ) and it's a hard game."
