Aaron Hughes has warned Manchester City that Fulham's never-say-die attitude will make his team hard to beat when the two sides face off on Sunday.
The Cottagers travel to Eastlands to take on Mark Hughes' side on the back of a well-earned 1-1 draw with Italian giants Roma on Thursday.
After a slow start to the season, Roy Hodgson's men now find themselves in 12th place in the Barclays Premier League table after beating Hull and picking up a draw at West Ham.
"It's very much a theme that the team has resilience, we are a good solid unit regardless of how we play and who we play," the Northern Ireland defender said.
"It's part of the atmosphere, part of being Fulham if you like, that not only do we play good football but we stick together.
"It is going to be a big game at the weekend. They have a lot of very talented individuals and they are playing well. But it's one that we will be relishing and we'll be looking to get something from the game."
