Fulham defender Joe Bryan feels it is vital his side ensure their home form is strong going forward and is ready for the visit of West Ham on Saturday.

Fulham are 2.88 to secure the win, West Ham are 2.50 and a draw is 3.40. The Cottagers have four games left in 2018 and three of those fixtures take place at Craven Cottage.

Left-back Bryan, who has recently returned from injury, believes results at home will be crucial to Fulham’s chances of avoiding the drop and he is in a confident mood ahead of the Hammers’ visit.

“We’ve got to pick up points from these ones [the home games],” he told the club website. “We’ve got a good run of games to try and pick up some vital points.

“West Ham are a good side. They went and bought a lot of quality players in the summer.

“They’ve had some injury problems but even then they’ve still got good players out there, the same as any team in the Premier League.

“We’ll look at the videos and see where their threats are and try and put in a good performance and get the result on Saturday.”

Fulham go into the visit of West Ham seeking to end a three-game winless run but at home they remain unbeaten under new boss Claudio Ranieri, having seen off Southampton in his first game in charge before drawing with Leicester.
