All the pressure on Cardiff, insists Fulham boss Magath

Fulham manager Felix Magath has said that all the pressure will be on Cardiff City when the two sides meet in a crucial fixture in South Wales on Saturday, Sky Sports has reported.

The Cottagers are currently bottom of the Premier League on 21 points, just one behind their opponents with 10 games remaining. West Bromwich Albion, the side fourth from bottom at present have 25 points ahead of their meeting with Manchester United in Saturday’s early kick-off, meaning a win appears vital for both sides.

However, Magath has emphasised the importance of home matches, claiming that his team, as the visitors, can afford to come away with a draw. The German said: “Cardiff is in the worst situation, because Cardiff have a home game and they have to win.

“They are one point better than us. It’s not enough for them to avoid relegation. They have to win, so it’s a good situation for us. I’m convinced that will give us a chance, with counter-attacks, to create chances and to score.

“In our situation you have to especially take care of the home games. You have to win the home games, with support from the fans. If you go away it is very difficult to say you must win.”
