Etuhu: No FA Cup hangover as Fulham step up Premier League survival mission

Dickson Etuhu says Fulham

are not worried about the prospect of facing Manchester United

again in a fortnight, despite having conceded seven goals against them in the past month. 

The champions' 3-0 win in the Premier League was followed up by a  4-0 victory in the FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday and United are back at  Craven Cottage again on 21 March.

Fulham head into Wednesday's  home game against Blackburn

in a seemingly comfortable 10th place in the table but they are just seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Etuhu says there will be no hangover from his side's Cup exit, nor  will there be any complacency against a Rovers team who are third from bottom.

Etuhu added: 'Everybody knows we're good enough to stay up but this is a tough League. We'll fight every game like it was our last. Some of the boys are hurting right now but we'll pick ourselves up and go again on Wednesday.

'We didn't think United would put out such a strong team but they showed us respect because of how good we are at home. We started off well but then we conceded a bad goal and then their confidence went up. 

'But we're not going to let it get to us. The Cup is gone and we did really well getting to the quarter-finals. The most important thing for us now is to win our next two games against Blackburn and at Bolton
