Can Toon Keep Fulham's Horror Record Going?
Martin Jol admits Fulham are in dire need of a goal to kick-start their season after going almost five hours without scoring.
Newcastle's lack of squad depth has been brought into sharp focus in recent weeks ... but the same problem has haunted the Cottagers'.
The west Londoners' last victory was in October, meaning they face Newcastle on Monday without a win in seven attempts.
Fulham are also two minutes shy of going a full five hours without scoring.
Martin Jol: "I don't think it was a big problem before the Sunderland game (where Fulham lost 3-1) so for us failure and success is an unbelievably thin line.
"We had a loss after that against Stoke, then we had a draw at Chelsea and lost against Spurs so everything happened in two weeks.
"We have to pick up ourselves and pick up some points.
"Even in the first half against Spurs we had three or four chances - more chance than they had, more attempts on goal.
"Against Sunderland, for example, before Brede Hangeland's red card, I thought we were the better team.
"That was probably the biggest disappointment because those three points would have given us 20 points.
"It all started on that day and we got injuries to Bryan Ruiz and Alex Kacaniklic so after that we had to change things and I feel we are good enough to come up with a solution.
"It is always the same.
"Three weeks ago we were all very happy at Fulham and two weeks later the situation totally changes.
"It is the same with goalkeepers. You make one mistake and everyone will doubt your quality and talk about it, but he is strong enough.
"Mark Schwarzer is a very good goalkeeper. He saved a lot of points for us so he will be back."
