Magath: 'More pressure on other teams'

Fulham's Felix Magath believes that there is more regional pressure on the other three teams involved in the relegation battle.

Fulham manager Felix Magath has insisted that there is more pressure on the other teams in the relegation scrap than his own, because there are so many teams in London and therefore no regional expectation.

Magath said that the likes of Sunderland, Cardiff City and Norwich City are from towns and cities that have the weight of expectation as there are not many other teams in the area to support.

"In my opinion I think the atmosphere at Norwich or Sunderland or Cardiff will be more nervous than here," he said in his pre-match press conference.

"We are under pressure but not as under pressure as these clubs from the small towns where the whole town is behind the club."

Fulham have the chance to move out of the Premier League's bottom three with a win over Hull City on Saturday.
