Fulham manager Roy Hodgson insists his side's poor start to the Premier League season should be no cause for alarm.
The Cottagers lie just one place above the relegation zone following a disappointing start which has seen them pick up only two wins - against Everton and bottom side Portsmouth.
Hodgson will be looking to improve his side's fortunes when he takes them to West Ham for his third London derby of the season on Sunday.
The Hammers will leapfrog Fulham out of the relegation zone if they win, they also having started the season poorly.
"I have great confidence within ourselves that over the course of 38 games we will get the points necessary," Hodgson said.
"I am also confident that West Ham will get the points necessary so I think I'll save my worries about six pointers until we get to the 25 or 28 game mark rather than the seven game mark."
