Richardson sure of Fulham survival

Fulham grabbed a last gasp winner at Villa Park over the weekend and midfielder Kieran Richardson believes there is every chance the club will claw their way to safety, with some mysteriously similar stats lending faith to everyone involved, reports the Daily Star

Richardson scored an outstanding effort to put Fulham in front at Aston Villa - and back in 2005 pitched in with a vital goal that ultimately saw West Brom clinch survival on the last day of the season.

And Hugo Rodallega, who scored the eventual winner just four minutes from time, also scored the goal that kept Wigan Athletic up on the final day of the season at Stoke three years ago.

Further still, in 2008, now England manager Roy Hodgson did the impossible and dragged the club from the relegation trap door with four wins from their last six games - and their remaining games this season fall on the exact same dates this season.

Fulham now welcome Norwich to Craven Cottage in another huge relegation show down and Richardson believes while there is the possibility of a helping hand, the club are hitting form at the right time.

He said: “My faith is very, very strong. My fate is in one person's hands. And Fulham's fate? Yes - the main man. God.

“We're very confident we can beat Norwich. In the last three games we've picked up two wins. We're in form.

"I'm not worried. I do believe we will get out of it because we have the quality. We're confident in the changing room.

"It doesn't matter if it's last day, last minute, last second. As long as we stay up, that's all that matters.”
