Schwarzer keen to avoid rut

23 Oct 2008 - 10:21:57

Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer is hoping Fulham can 'grind out' a result against Portsmouth on Sunday in a bid to avoid slipping into a rut.

The Cottagers have failed to win any of their last five games and Schwarzer believes a weekend victory - however it comes - is essential in order to bounce back from a recent downturn.

"I've been in this situation before when you're playing good football but not getting results and you have to make sure that you don't slip into a rut," he told the club's official website.

"You've almost got to revert back to a bit of unattractive football and just make sure that you grind out results to lay that platform, get a run going and build on that.

"You know Portsmouth are going to be dangerous with (Peter) Crouch and (Jermain) Defoe up front.

"Hopefully they'll have a touch of UEFA Cup blues and we'll be able to take advantage of that."
