Gera won't underestimate Blackpool

Zoltan Gera warned Fulham that Saturday's clash with newly-promoted Blackpool at Bloomfield Road will be a "very dangerous fixture".

Blackpool return to their famous home after opening their first Barclays Premier League campaign with successive away games at Wigan and Arsenal. The Seasiders stunned Wigan with a 4-0 victory before crashing to a 6-0 defeat at Arsenal last weekend.

Gera knows Fulham will have to brace themselves for a hostile reception as Blackpool home. "It will be a very tough game against Blackpool because they'll be playing their first game at home in the Premier League," said the Hungarian midfielder.

"It will be a noisy stadium and they'll be playing with high confidence, so it's a very dangerous fixture for us and we need to prepare very carefully."

Gera scored twice in Wednesday night's 6-0 Carling Cup win over Port Vale and he added: "That result will certainly give us good confidence to take into Saturday."
